Yakuza PSP getting a TV Show and Manga

SEGA will be airing a 11 part TV show adaptation of its Yakuza PSP game and will have the same name as the game, “Black Panther: New Yakuza Chapter.” The show will air after K-On, a anime that SEGA is turning into a PSP game.

The show will begin airing on October 5th and after its run it will be available on the Playstation Network to rent. Most likely Japan only.

If that was not enough there will also be a Manga adaptation drawn by Yukai Asada. SEGA calls the Manga “Kurohyou,” on their press release. The series will start being serialized on September 18th via Weekly Young Magazine (Issue 42).

    Are they SUPPOSED to look like scrawny 15-year-olds?

    Oh, shit. I don't want to meet these guys in a dark alley in the red district. They may want to challenge me in a breakdance.

    Seriously, just look at how the guy in the middle is staring down at you. He means business.

  3. Sega Uranus says:

    Yeah, these guys look like completely pathetic pushovers. Not really the image Nagoshi wanted at all.

    So you guys say hidden behind your internets, I bet if you were walking at night and a group of 12 year olds started harrassing you you'd shit your pants and run… just like everyone else.

    Also, I'm pretty sure this IS the look Nagoshi is going for… Isn't Black Panther based on the kind of shit muncher street gangs made up mostly of kids?

    I'm more bothered by the Manga, bad art is bad.

    Takeuchi Inoue (Vagabond, SlamDunk) would have been the Ideal choice for this one.
