Kadokawa’s recent announcement heralds the exciting news that Riichirou Inagaki and Ryoichi Ikegami’s manga, “Trillion Game,” is set to make its debut as a television anime adaptation on TBS and various other Japanese channels. Accompanying this announcement is a captivating trailer for the forthcoming anime.
Inagaki, acclaimed for works such as “Eyeshield 21” and “Dr. Stone,” joined forces with Ikegami, renowned for “Crying Freeman,” to unveil the manga’s unique narrative.
At its core, “Trillion Game” revolves around Haru and Gaku, an unlikely duo with a shared ambition: amassing a staggering trillion dollars to obtain their heart’s desires.
Haru, a charismatic orator, possesses the power of persuasion and confidence that endears him to anyone he encounters. In contrast, Gaku, a proficient but socially awkward programmer, brings his technical expertise to the table. The two reunite after their paths diverge in middle school, following Gaku’s unsuccessful job application to a bank company.
Initially serialized in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Superior magazine in December 2020, the manga has garnered widespread acclaim and a devoted readership. As of July 12, Shogakukan has released the seventh compiled volume of this gripping series, which has achieved an impressive circulation of over 1.5 million copies.
Notably, “Trillion Game” has already made its mark in the realm of live-action, with a series adaptation premiering on the TBS channel and its affiliated networks on July 14.
Ren Meguro of the idol group Snow Man embodies the role of the eloquent Haru Tennōji, while Hayato Sano portrays the skilled yet socially challenged Manabu “Gaku” Taira.
