Yoshinobu Tokumoto (Comic Girls)-directed TV anime adaptation will be available on Crunchyroll on February 2
The official Twitter for FLIPFLOPs' supernatural battle manga Darwin's Game announced that the publisher Akita Shoten has decided to reprint the series in large quantities and that the series will have more than four million copies in print in Japan. Its latest 19th volume has already gotten a second reprint.
The manga has been serialized in Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Shonen Champion since its January 2013 issue. Before its 19th volume was published on December 6, 2019, the series' total circulation was reported as three million copies. The reason for this huge boost is, of course, the ongoing TV anime adaptation by Nexus that started airing in Japan on January 4, 2020.
The person in charge of the manga at Akita Shoten writes in the Twitter post below, "We have no doubt that 2020 will be a year of Darwin's Game!"
