The UK-based Manga Entertainment UK Ltd. has optioned the comic series Wayward for either a live-action or Japanese animated series. Co-creators Jim Zub and Steven Cummings will act as creative consultants on the project, developing the story treatment, character designs, and counting that fat option money.

Published by Image Comics, Wayward is an action-drama set in modern Tokyo where Yokai, Japanese creatures and spirits of legend, battle against teenagers imbued with newfound supernatural power.

Manga Entertainment began as a producer, licensor and distributor of Japanese animation in the United Kingdom, quickly earning its reputation as the UK's largest anime distributor with revered anime brands including GHOST IN THE SHELL, DRAGON BALL Z, NARUTO, ONE PIECE, BLEACH and DEATH NOTE.

The Outhouse interviewed Zub before the launch of Wayward's third arc, which you can read here. Wayward starts its fifth arc with #21 in June.
