On Thursday, this year’s 36th issue of Shuiesha’s Young Jump magazine revealed that Yugo Aosaki and Toshimitsu Matsubara are going to launch a new manga titled Gas-to Norainu Tanteidan in the next issue of the magazine.

Aosaki is writing the manga, and Matsubara is drawing the art.

The manga will debut on August 10 and will have a colored opening page, and the first chapter will have 83 pages.

The manga is set in late Victorian London, and will center on a street urchin whose life is changed by a big event.

Aosaki is the author of the Undead Girl Murder Farce.

Aosaki launched the novel series in 2015. In June 2016, Haruka Tomoyama released the manga version of the Aosaki story in Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine.

Since then, it has switched to the Nemesis magazine in June 2017. Later, it shifted to the Comic Days website in September 2018.

The series is receiving an anime adaptation in 2023 as well.

Kodansha USA Publishing licensed the manga adaptation, and it describes the story as:

The end of the 19th century—a vampire’s wife is murdered, and the detective known as the “cage user” is called in to solve the crime. But there’s more to the detective and the curtained birdcage he carries…after all, when solving a case involving a monster, it might just take one to know one!
