This week's issue of Weekly Shounen Champion is a must buy for both Resident Evil and AKB48 fans. In addition to a "BIG" poster of AKB48 member Haruka Nakagawa (the girl in the lower right of the cover), this week's issue kicks off a new Resident Evil manga.
Titled Resident Evil Maruhawa Desire, the manga is set in Maruhawa Academy, the largest school in Asia. The school is located on an island. After a student mysterious turns into a zombie, BSAA advisor Professor Dagu (or possibly Doug) and his assistant Ricky come to the school to investigate, and get caught up in a larger happening.
The story of Resident Evil Maruhawa Design is canon, according to Capcom. Chris and other BSAA members also make an appearance in the manga.
