“Having fought his way into the top grade of Mechanical Martial Arts, Levius faces an ever-changing world that grows more threatening by the day. The shadowy megacorporation Amethyst wields its military might across the world through advancements in the arena. Can Levius be the fighter who changes the course of the world’s fate?”
VIZ will also debut a new high school coming-of-age series called TROPICAL FISH YEARS FOR SNOW (MSRP $9.99; rated ‘T’ for teens) by Makoto Hagino.
