The original High-Rise Invasion manga is serialized online on DeNA’s Manga Box app and is collected into print volumes in Japan by Kodansha, and an English language version of the series is also published by Seven Seas Entertainment. Netflix describes the story of the series as follows:
High school student Yuri Honjo finds herself lost in an “abnormal space” where countless skyscrapers are connected by suspension bridges and “masked figures” mercilessly slaughter their confused and fleeing victims. To survive in this hellish world, she has two choices: kill the masked figures or be killed. Yuri is determined to survive in order to destroy this irrational world, but what will be her ultimate fate?
High-Rise Invasion is directed by Masahiro Takata and features animation production by Zero-G. The series is scheduled to stream on Netflix in various territories worldwide beginning on February 25, 2021.
