Manga serialisation has begun!

I received a query from Ka about this and yes, it’s true :) DRAMAtical Murder’s first chapter has debut on B’s-Log Kyun magazine vol. 18 on 11 August 2012. The manga is illustrated by Asada Torao 浅田寅ヲ, an award-winning (1996) mangaka who calls herself an “artist of violence” バイオレンス作家. The name she uses for her douin works is Asada Miyoko 浅田ミヨコ.

This issue contains Amnesia booklet.

According to the description, Asada Torao’s version of “Brain Crash Story”, DRAMAtical Murder shall bring with it refreshing new elements from the mangaka while keeping the atmosphere of the original game intact. Aoba, Kojaku and other characters will make their appearances. The power packed Lime scenes are also not to be missed!

I’ve not read manga from this mangaka before but a quick search on Amazon Japan shows up some interesting works. Sci-fi inspired, surreal, post-edgy title like Pied Piper パイドパイパー (2002) and Ultra Baroque Deprogrammer ウルトラバロック・デプログラマ (2009).

From these sci-fi works, its not difficult to understand why Nitro+Chiral approached Asada Torao for DRAMAtical Murder’s manga version but her style does lean a lot more towards Onizuka Seiji’s dark, looming Sweet Pool than the bright, bubblegum pop style of Honyarara. Have you read these before? What do you think?
