In February, Tokyopop are set to publish a new manga by one of the authors of the Battle Royale manga, Masayuki Taguchi. Titled Lives, the two-volume series was originally published in Japan in 2006 by Akita Shoten.

 

The story of Lives takes place after a freak meteor shower devastates the Kanto region of Japan. The people caught in the blast find themselves transported to a world where humans transform into cannibalistic beasts. The events of the series centre around martial arts student, Shinma Shingo, who tries to salvage his humanity and find a way back home for himself and his friends.
