Cambria Bakuhatsutarō pens manga adaptation of upcoming anime mini-series

The October issue of Kadokawa's Young Ace magazine revealed on Monday that the manga adaptation of the Gamera -Rebirth- anime will launch in Kadokawa's Young Ace Up! web site on Friday. The anime's Twitter account previously unveiled a visual for the manga on July 24, with Cambria Bakuhatsutarō as the manga's artist.

The anime will debut worldwide on Netflix on September 7. The series will have six episodes, focusing on the titular Gamera fighting five kaiju (giant monsters).

The giant, fire-breathing turtle monster Gamera made his debut in Daiei's 1965 film Daikaijū Gamera (Gamera the Giant Monster). Daiei intended the film to compete with TOHO's similar smash hit giant monster movie Godzilla. The 12th and most recent film in the franchise was Chiisaki Yūsha-tachi ~Gamera~ (Gamera the Brave) in 2006.
