Shō Aimoto’s Kemono Jihen manga launched in the pages of Shueisha’s Jump SQ magazine in December 2016. Nine volumes have hit stores to date, with the most recent shipping to stores on November 1.
Manga resource Baka-Updates describes the title as:
When a series of animal bodies that rot away after a single night begin appearing in a remote mountain village, Inugami, a detective from Tokyo who specializes in the occult, is called to investigate.
While working the case, he befriends a strange boy who works in the field every day instead of going to school. Shunned by his peers and nicknamed “Dorotabo” after a yokai that lives in the mud, he helps Inugami uncover the truth behind the killings – but supernatural forces are at work, and while Dorotabo is just a nickname, it might not be the only thing about the boy that isn’t human.
