Mangamo announced on Wednesday that it has acquired the Killing Bites, Papa and Daddy’s Home Cooking, and The Force of the Fox manga. The service is launching the manga in February-March.
Mangamo will launch illustrator Kazasa Sumita and writer Shinya Murata‘s Killing Bites manga on Wednesday.
Sentai Filmworks licensed the television anime adaptation of the manga, and it describes the story:
By the time Yuya Nomoto discovers his so-called friends have duped him into a clandestine plot to kidnap a high school girl, they’re already dead. Things go from bad to worse as Yuya is dragged into a cutthroat world of underground bloodsport known as Killing Bites, where Therianthropes — brutal gene-edited killing machines — fight to the death for rival, power-hungry forces who manipulate society from the shadows.
Murata and Sumita launched the manga in Monthly Hero’s in March 2017, although it now runs on the Comiple website. Hero’s Inc. published the manga’s 21st volume on December 27.
The television anime adaptation premiered on the Animeism programming block on MBS and TBS in January 2018. The anime’s unaired “director’s cut” streamed worldwide on Amazon Prime Video. The anime had 12 episodes.
Mangamo will launch Yū Toyota‘s Papa and Daddy’s Home Cooking (Papa to Oyaji no Uchi Gohan) manga on February 22.
The manga’s story centers on chiropractor Sengoku, who is suddenly entrusted by his ex-girlfriend with their child. He asks help from his friend Harumi, a manga editor who is also a single father of a son. The story follows their daily struggles as they begin living together with their children.
Toyota launched the manga in Shinchosha‘s Monthly Comic @Bunch (later simply Monthly Comic Bunch) magazine in April 2014, and ended it in July 2020. Shinchosha published the manga’s 13th and final volume in October 2020.
Mangamo will launch writer Hanta Kinoshita and illustrator Noriyoshi Inoue‘s The Force of the Fox manga on March 1. The company describes the story:
In the entertainment world, full of gossip and scandals, the suicide of an idol has been reported. “Common things” in the world. But, for Nagisa Yaegashi, her older sister, this is not someone else’s affair. Her sister, who had her child, had a reason to live. It’s a “disguised suicide” behind the conspiracy. By whom and why was her sister killed? Using the teachings of a genius swindler as a weapon, uncover the mysteries buried in darkness.
