The first chapter of CLAMP’s manga adaptation of HiGH&LOW, officially titled HiGH&LOW g-sword, will begin next week on Weekly Shonen Magazine #16, to be released on March 22.
The chapter will have a color page and we can see a preview of it below:
From the above picture, we also learn that the manga will get a flash animation adaptation to air on Nippon TV show Sukkiri! from March 27 to March 31.
Considering the two official main visuals for HiGH&LOW g-sword and the fact that it’s getting a flash animation, I think it’s safe to assume that this will be an all-chibi characters manga.
I don’t think what to think of it yet. I am a little disappointed since it looks like we won’t be seeing CLAMP’s gorgeous art at its finest — but I guess it makes sense when you take into account that this will be a weekly series and CLAMP are busy with Card Captor Sakura, it makes sense that they want to take things lightly.
The short-term flash animation also makes me question the length of this series. For now we will be getting five short flash anime episodes and then what? Looks like a weird schedule to me.
