While this has been adapted into musicals and movies many times, there are other mediums of entertainment that Les Miserables have been adapted into.
One example was a Japanese anime series called “Les Miserables: Shojo Cosette.” The series ran for fifty-two episodes from January 2007 until December 2007.
Also, a group of gamers in Japan even adapted Les Miserables into a 2D fighting game called “Arm Joe.” That comes from the story's Japanese title called “Aa Mujou.”
