A leak from the social network Weibo assured that the manga written by katarina and illustrated by Ryōsuke Fuji, Shangri-La Frontier: Kusoge Hunter, Kamige ni Idoman to su (Shangri-La Frontier: Crappy Game Hunter Challenges God-Tier Game), will have an anime adaptation. Since there is no official confirmation in this regard, it should be expected in future editions of the magazine. Weekly Shōnen Magazine.
It should be noted that this is not the first time this has been mentioned, since the Editorial Glenat from France commented during an interview in December 2021 that “they weren’t worried at all about a drop in manga sales, given that an anime adaptation was on the way“. Considering that leaks like the one from trigun took two years to confirm, it would come as no surprise if production had started since then.
For his part, Fuji began publishing the manga in the magazine Weekly Shōnen Magazine of Kodansha in July 2020. The manga is based on the novel series of the same name written by katarinawhich are published through the site Shousetsuka ni Narou since May 2017. Kata has also written an additional series of novels that have been published in Weekly Shonen Magazine itself.
