The year is 2019, and the Japanese government has recently increased their involvement in censorship of the mass media. The upcoming Tokyo Olympics accelerates their efforts. Depictions deemed obscene by the Japanese government become increasingly difficult to publish, even in manga.

Under these circumstances, manga author Hibino Mikio just got an opportunity to publish his horror manga: "Dark Walker." His manga centers around a disease that turns normal people into cannibals during the night. Watch as Mikio finds himself in a manga industry shaken by a war on the freedom of expression.

Yuugai Toshi is the author's personal view on censorship in japan and while this isn't a topic you'll see often in anime/manga its development isn't really going to impress you if you've seen any western take on this topic.

The story revolves around the release of this manga called "Dark walker" and the events that happen to the author Hibino.
In this version of Japan there's a council that supervise every piece of media and eventually censors those whom are labeled as dangerous or malicious for the public.
Whilst being an interesting premise it never gets developed further than this and follows a really linear structure, we never read more
