Kodoani.com – This year’s 27th issue of Kodansha’s Weekly Young Magazine revealed on Monday that the manga Kaiji Nobuyuki Fukumoto’s work will be interrupted due to Fukumoto conducting research. The manga will return in the magazine’s 42nd issue in September.
Kaiji Itou’s unchanging existence is suddenly disturbed by a visit from the yakuza. Deep in debt and resentment, Kaiji is forced to gamble in exchange for his worthless life. As the stakes get higher and higher and the rules get weirder and weirder, Kaiji must finally take the future in his own hands!
Fukumoto launched the seinen series in Kodansha’s Weekly Young Magazine in 1996. The 88th volume of the series was published on May 8.
In addition to the two television anime series, the manga has inspired three Japanese live-action films, a Chinese live-action film, and a reality gamshow.
Anime Mr. Tonegawa, based on the Kaiji spinoff manga, premiered in July 2018.
