Saizō Harawata and Miyakokasiwa’s Deatte 5-byō de Battle (Battle in 5 seconds after meeting) is inspiring a television anime adaptation. A teaser website revealed a key image, which went live on Thursday.
The story begins when Akira Shiroyanagi, a high school boy who loves games and konpeitō sugar candies, is suddenly caught up in a battle over a mysterious girl who calls herself Mion.
Harawata published the original manga online before artist Miyakokasiwa released a “remake” of the manga with new art on Shogakukan’s Ura Sunday web comic service in 2015. The manga is also on Shogakukan’s Manga ONE app. Shogakukan published volume 14 of the manga’s compiled book on June 18, and will publish volume 15 on November 19. The manga has more than two million copies in circulation.
