The January 2020 issue of Mag Garden‘s Monthly Comic Garden magazine revealed on Thursday that the manga adaptation of Bun’ō Fujisawa’s Mars Red dramatic stage reading series will launch in the magazine’s next issue on January 4. The manga was previously scheduled to launch on November 5.
Fujisawa and Monthly Comic Garden revealed the manga by Kemuri Karakara (Laughing Under the Clouds) in May.
The story of the original stage productions is set in the Taisho period, and centers on four individuals who are infected with a “vampire virus.” The Japanese government plans to use the four for a plan to make invincible super-soldiers.
The first stage production of Mars Red debuted in 2013, with more shows in 2015 and 2017.
