Thor: Ragnarok Writer Developing A Ga-Rei Manga Live-action Series.

Kensuke Nimura has always been able to see spirits, but he never expected to find himself helping a girl named Kagura who battles evil spirits with her spirit beast, Byakuei. As it turns out, she's a member of the Ministry of the Environment's top-secret Occult Disaster Response Agency, and she's out to recruit him, too...


Thor: Ragnarok co-writer Craig Kyle revealed during an appearance at the Japan Content Showcase in Tokyo that he is working on a live-action television series adaptation pilot episode based on Hajime Segawa's Ga-Rei manga series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ga-Rei live-action television series tells the story of two young girls "destined to define the fate of the living and the dead."

"What it has more than anything is wonderful, wonderful characters," Kyle said. "That's the one component, above all else, that will guarantee a success if handled properly by those you entrust with those characters and the IP. Everyone who wants the next Game of Thrones, I will make the bold statement that Ga-Rei has that potential."

"I left Marvel with all my friends intact...I wanted to touch far more worlds than the ones I had been exposed to for 14 years.

"The best place to find those great stories is here.... [Japan has] a treasure trove of material that you can pull from."

Hajime Segawa supernatural action manga ran in Kadokawa Shoten's Monthly Sh┼Źnen Ace magazine from October 26, 2005 – January 26, 2010.

A 12 episodes anime television series adaptation titled Ga-Rei: Zero ran from October 5, 2008 – December 21, 2008. Ei Aoki directed the anime series and Katsuhiko Takayama wrote the script at AIC Spirits and asread.
