BABYMETAL Is Back as a Graphic Novel, and It Looks Epic! (EXCLUSIVE)

Remember BABYMETAL? The incredibly cute and also incredibly hardcore death metal J-pop group (and pioneers of what they themselves called “Kawaii Metal”) tha went viral a couple of years ago with their hit “Gimme Chocolate”? Just in case you missed the memo, we’ve included the incredible video below! Since their debut, the band has been busy with two albums, a world tour, and now a graphic novel from Z2 and Amuse Group USA, which will tell the canonical story of the brilliantly barmy band. Before you ask, of course we have exclusive pages of their new comic, APOCRYPHA: THE LEGEND OF BABYMETAL, for your viewing pleasure!

As you can see, the pages by GMB Chomichuk promise an epic journey through the history of the band. According to the record label, the girls were chosen by the Fox God as messengers on Earth, so it’s pretty likely that the book will expand on the lore that fans are already familiar with. In an official press release, Z2 stated, “In the story, a mission from the Fox God – an entity frequently highlighted in BABYMETAL’s music and performances – takes three reincarnating protagonists on a time-traveling journey from prehistoric Kyoto to modern day New York City.”

You can check out all of our exclusive pages below! Will you be picking up the book when it’s released on October 30th? Just really love Babymetal and want to know more about the incredible women at the bands core? Let us know below!
