Thriller Series ‘Kaiji’ Gets a Comedy Spin-Off From Madhouse

Fans of Nobuyuki Fukumoto’s popular Kaiji series have something to celebrate because Madhouse is producing a spin-off anime!

Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa

The Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa (Middle Management Chronicle Tonegawa) comedy manga is getting an anime that will air later this year. The follows the “agonizing daily life” of Yukio Tonegawa, who served as the antagonist during Kaiji‘s first arc. It’ll be a humorous take on the franchise as Tonegawa deals with internal conflicts and black suits.

Chuukan Kanriroku Tonegawa has proved to be very popular despite being wildly different in tone compared to the psychological-thriller Kaiji. The comedy series has won a large readership since launching in 2015 and ranked as the top manga for male readers in Kono Manga ga Sugoi!! 2017. Tensei Hagiwara is writing the manga with Tomohiro Hashimoto and Tomoki Miyoshi providing the art.
