Siren is getting a new manga adaptation to commemorate the horror series’ tenth anniversary, Sony Computer Entertainment Japan announced on Twitter.

The second manga adaptation for the series after 2005’s Siren: Eternal Siren, this year’s new series is titled Siren: The Call of the Red Sea and will be drawn by horror manga newcomer Wataru Kamio.

Its storyline is said to be completely new and will be overseen by series veterans including director Keiichiro Toyama and scenario writer Naoko Sato. Somewhat unique to an adaptation of its kind, Sony has stated that its staff members that are involved in the creation of the manga will have complete editorial control over Kamio’s work in the series.

The series is set to run in multiple parts over several months, beginning with a preview running in the newly released spring issue of quarterly manga magazine Shin Mimibukuro Atmos, which is known for publishing offbeat stories. Afterwards, the story will continue in the magazine’s July, October, and December issues.
