About Gachiakuta:

Gachiakuta is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Kei Urana. Urana launched the manga in Kodansha’s Weekly Shonen Magazine in February 2022.

Hideyoshi Ando is accredited for graffiti designs in the manga.

Till March 15, the manga has published 10 volumes, with volume 11 slated for launch on June 17.

Kodansha USA published the manga in English and describes the series as:

Rudo lives in the slums of a floating town, where the poor scrape by under the shadow of the rich, who live a sumptuous life, simply casting their garbage off the side, into the abyss.

Then one day, he’s falsely accused of murder, and his wrongful conviction leads to an unimaginable punishment—exile off the edge, with the rest of the trash.

Down on the surface, the cast-off waste of humanity has bred vicious monsters, and if Rudo wants to have any hope of discovering the truth and seeking vengeance against those who cast him into Hell, he will have to master a new power and join a group known as the Cleaners who battle the hulking trash beasts of the Pit!
