From Tomohiro Maekawa and Jinsei Kataoka (the artist of the smash hit Deadman Wonderland) comes Livingstone, the story about two men, Sakurai and Amano, on a quest to prevent the early deaths of those not yet fated to meet their end, or, at least, to recover the receptacle of the lost soul—the livingstone.
