‘Rooster Fighter’: A fighting cock, demon hunter and inspired by Jackie Chan and Bruce Willis.

Panini Manga brought this week the first volume of the manga ‘Rooster Fighter’, an adventure starring a rooster in search of revenge and if to achieve it requires killing every demon he crosses, so be it. We tell you why it is worth it.

Right now they are in their mere moment the plots of demon hunterNeedless to mention all the fury around Demon Slayer and the train that comes with the launch of the Chainsaw Man anime, whose first rumors say that it will give much to talk about for its brutality, since it is produced by the same animator behind the outcome of Attack on Titan, the launch in Mexico of the Rooster Fighter manga fell like a glove.

What is it about? Of an executioner rooster of bloodthirsty demons! We are located in a Japan where the appearances of get out become a danger to all citizens, creatures infected by a mysterious virus, so far it is interpreted, that they feed on people’s anger, insecurity and misery, transforming into disgusting and grotesque creatures with a thirst to destroy and eat every human being in their path, until they mess with the wrong living being: a rooster named Cage.

He celebrated its publication in Mexico with different postcards.

It turns out that one night, on his farm, a stick He suddenly appears and eats his sister in a bite, in revenge he spends a long time of his life training to become and find the demon that dared to destroy part of his family, having to travel all over Japan, and perhaps the world, you’ll see why, to find the culprit. On their way, Cage has sexual encounters with some chickens, forges alliances with a turtle turned into a deadly weapon, and wins idolatry. of humans and chicks, that is, walk the path of a hero.

It’s all we need from an action shonen, so applause to Panini Manga for immediately bringing it to Mexico, plus the author Shu Sakuratani, usually writes a lot in Spanish and has expressed a lot of influence and liking for the Latin culture. He recently gave an interview to a Peruvian portal where he explained that drew a lot of inspiration from One Punch Man, and it makes sense if you remember the kind of beasts that Saitama destroys and the ones this mangaka calls get out, when creating this action comedy. Now, his fighting style is strongly influenced by the author’s fanaticism towards Jackie Chan and the films of Hard to Kill, by Bruce Willis.

Fight the disgusting kiju with a powerful “quiquiriqui”.

As Latin America is a country where cockfighting, a cruel practice and punishable by law, are part of popular culture (unfortunately), he was promptly asked if in the course of writing Cage’s adventures he would bring him hunting. get out in other parts of the world: “but I don’t know, because I don’t read comics from other countries, but I think the characteristics of this story will change depending on the culture of each country. And I feel that Rooster Fighter enjoys greater prestige abroad than in Japan, especially by Latinos“he told Otaku Press.

In fact, in his social network, perhaps with the help of the translator, because he has not clarified if he knows a little Spanish, he sends tweets in our language and promotes the special postcards he launched for the debut of his story in Mexico, Peru, Argentina and Spain. For that of our country, Shu drew Cage with a hat and a zarape posing with the Pyramid of the Sun background. Are your appreciation and taste for Latin still questioned?

His fighting style and temperament is influenced by Jackie Chan and Bruce Willis.

“In Japan it has long been said that chickens are messengers of the gods, and the door torii of a sanctuary is considered a perch of chickens, so we were sure that they would be loved if we made them the protagonists of a manga. And I know about cockfighting (in Latin America), “he told Proyecto Sugoi magazine,”but our protagonist still has a hidden past that will gradually reveal itself“he added.

It will be a matter of time for a production company to raise its hand to ally with Shu and start producing the anime, although We have to wait to see if the interest in their native country increases because if it has no impact there, they do not care that in Latin America or another part of the world it is a hitThere we have the case of Saint Seiya: Lost Canvas, on this side of the pond we are dying to have the continuation, but since there we did not like it there is no human power that fulfills our wishes.
