This year’s fourth issue of Kodansha‘s Young Magazine the 3rd revealed on Wednesday that Sun Takeda‘s Gleipnir manga will receive a television anime adaptation. The issue revealed a key visual and the anime’s main staff.
Kazuhiro Yoneda (Yona of the Dawn, Kabukibu!) will direct the series at PINE JAM. Shinichi Inotsume (The Price of Smiles, PERSONA 5 the Animation) is in charge of series composition, and Takahiro Kishida (Baccano!, Haikyu!!) is designing the characters.
Kodansha Comics will release the first compiled book volume of the series on March 19. The publisher describes the first volume:
Shuichi Kagaya an ordinary high school kid in a boring little town. But when a beautiful classmate is caught in a warehouse fire, he discovers a mysterious power: he can transform into a furry dog with an oversized revolver and a zipper down his back. He saves the girl’s life, sharing his secret with her. But she’s searching for the sister who killed her family, and she doesn’t care how degrading it gets: she will use Shuichi to accomplish her mission …
Takeda launched the manga in Young Magazine the 3rd in October 2015. Kodansha published the manga’s fifth compiled book volume on June 20, and the sixth volume will ship on March 19.
