The first volume of Killerror Killerror, Fujiko Kosumi’s new manga which is currently being serialized in the girls’ manga magazine Monthly ASUKA, went on sale on 24 April. A promotional video and a commercial for the manga, both narrated by Yuki Kaji, have been released to commemorate this release.
The book’s wraparound band has a QR code printed on the flap that gives access to a website with three special gifts: the TV commercial to be shown only on TOKYO MX channel, the commercial’s special version with a different narration, and a comment and illustration by Fujiko Kosumi herself.
The commercial’s special version has a completely different atmosphere compared to the serious tone of the original PV and commercial.

‘Killerror Killerror’: The Blood-Action Manga on the Tragic Fate of Boys and Girls written by the Author of ‘Samurai Drive’, Fujiko Kosumi
The story takes place in 2018 Tokyo. The city is one day attacked and invaded by ‘Errors’, humans who have gone mad and kill citizens. To exterminate these Errors, the selected boys and girls are trained to become soldiers called MT (Mistilteinn). The manga is a stylish blood-action story about the young soldiers’ tragic battles.
In the first volume, protagonist Mahiro Tokura, who has been quarantined and trained to become an Error-killing soldier, meets other young soldiers who have also gone through training. Also, the volume illustrates the story of the separation between Mahiro and Haruomi Kusaka, the other leading character.

Taking advantage of my school days, where I spent a lot of my free time with music and anime, I look for new content and want to expose the fun side of Japan’s Otaku culture.
