It’s been announced that the Uchuu Keiji Gavan THE COMIC adaptation of the beloved Metal Hero will be made with cooperation from none other than Toru Fujisawa! Fujisawa is known for having created the long running GTO manga series that eventually lead to an anime and two J-Drama adaptations. Joining Fujisawa is Masaki Ota, writer of the Silent Blood manga series.
The series will be written by Yuji Kobayashi, writer of the movie and various Ultraman projects from the past. Masaki Ota and Toru Fujisawa will be teaming up to serve as directors for the project, with Ota providing the artwork. The two hope to help imprint their love of tokusatsu onto a hero that they both find very close to their hearts. The series, officially titled Uchuu Keiji Gavan: Dark Hero, will be released free of charge every Wednesday.
