About Gannibal Kickstarter
Comics and graphic novel publisher ABLAZE is bringing Masaaki Ninomiya’s modern day horror manga masterpiece GANNIBAL to Kickstarter. The bestselling 13-volume horror manga series, published in Japan by Nihon Bungeisha, has become a worldwide hit with publications in France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Ukraine, the Czech Republic, Turkey, Brazil, Korea, and Thailand, and will now make its highly anticipated English-language debut, with limited edition hardcovers available only via Kickstarter. Fans can follow the pre-launch page to receive an email when the project launches on Kickstarter.
A terrifying thriller series rich in tension and suspense, GANNIBAL has been adapted into a live-action TV series, directed by Shinzo Katayama (director of J-horror movie Missing) that currently streams on Disney+/Hulu and stars Yuya Yagira, Sho Kasamatsu, and Riho Yoshioka. In the series, Daigo Agawa is a resident police officer who has been recently assigned to the remote mountain village of Kuge. He is initially warmly welcomed by the villagers, but with the suspicious death of an old woman, he gradually becomes aware of the anomaly of the village and begins to suspect that “The people in this village are eating people.”
