Triage X is an ecchi action manga written and illustrated by Shouji Satou, who did the illustrations of the Highschool of the Dead manga. The series first began in May 2009 during the 2008-2010 hiatus of the Highschool of the Dead manga, where it was published in Fujimi Shobo’s Monthly Dragon Age magazine. To date a total of 9 compiled chapters, with the latest releasing in Japan on September 9 this year. Satou continued working on the series more feverishly after the more indefinite hiatus of the Highschool of the Dead manga in March 2011.
Here is a synopsis of Triage X from MAL:
Mochizuki General Hospital boasts some of the most well-trained (and well-endowed) nurses in town. But though these ladies spend much of their day battling sickness, their after-hours are spent fighting a very different sort of disease… Under the leadership of the hospital chairman, a handful of staff members and local teenagers form a group of mercenary assassins, targeting the “cancers” of society and excising those individuals before their wickedness spreads.
The Triage X anime adaptation will broadcast in Japan from April next year, during the Spring 2015 anime season. Further information about the series will be revealed next year.
