"Gachi Akuta" is a battle action series featuring an orphan boy named Ludo, born in a slum where the descendants of criminals live. The manga, created by Urana Kei with graffiti design by Ento Hideyoshi, started serialization in Kodansha's "Weekly Shonen Magazine" in February 2022. It received the Global Special Award in the Comic Division of the "Next Manga Awards 2022." Urana, while developing the concept of "Gachi Akuta," thought it would be more interesting to incorporate graffiti art, enlisting the help of graffiti artist Ento Hideyoshi.

The director is Fumihiko Suganuma, known for "The Eccentric Family" (episode direction), "SHIROBAKO" (episode direction), and "THE FIRST SLAM DUNK" (episode direction). The series composition will be handled by Hiroshi Seko, known for "Attack on Titan The Final Season" (series composition and script) and "WIND BREAKER" (series composition and script). The character design and chief animation director will be Satoshi Ishino, known for "A.I.C.O. Incarnation" (character design and chief animation director) and "Godzilla Singular Point" (character design and chief animation director).

Series Composition: Hiroshi Seko
Street-wise—this was the first word that came to mind when I read "Gachi Akuta." I believe that the insights and perspectives gained by Urana-sensei and Hideyoshi-san from learning firsthand on the streets, sometimes facing harsh realities, are scattered throughout this work. As a result, every page feels rough yet powerful, straight and strong, evoking a nostalgic old-school street vibe. I absolutely love works like this from the bottom of my heart.

Character Design and Chief Animation Director: Satoshi Ishino
I find every aspect of "Gachi Akuta"—the story, Urana-san's art, Hideyoshi-san's graffiti, and the overall world of the work—extremely appealing.
The diverse facial expressions, dynamism, and sketches of the characters drawn by Urana-san are all amazing. I hope to express Urana-san's captivating art effectively.
Please also look forward to the cool action scenes.
Thank you.
