Shihei Lin, an editor for works akin to SPY x FAMILY and Chainsaw Man, introduced on Twitter on Monday that Chainsaw Man manga creator Tatsuki Fujimoto will launch a brand new 200-page one-shot manga digitally on April 11. Shueisha will publish the manga on its Shonen Jump+ app and web site.

Fujimoto revealed a 140-page one-shot manga titled Look Back on Shonen Jump+ in July 2021. Shueisha‘s MANGA Plus service and Viz Media each revealed the manga in English digitally. The manga topped the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2022 checklist for male readers, and was nominated for the 14th Manga Taisho awards.

Fujimoto (Fire Punch) debuted the Chainsaw Man manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in December 2018 and ended its “first part,” the “Kōan” (Public Safety) arc, in December 2020. The manga will return with its second half titled “Gakkō-hen” (School Arc) on Shonen Jump+ this summer season.

The manga was nominated for the thirteenth Manga Taisho awards in 2019, and ranked at #4 on the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2020 (This Manga Is Amazing!) guidebook’s prime manga for male readers. The manga gained within the Best Shōnen Manga class on the 66th Shogakukan Manga Awards in January 2021. Additionally, the manga topped the Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2021 checklist for male readers. The manga gained the Best Manga award at The Harvey Awards final October.

Viz Media is publishing the manga concurrently digitally, and can be publishing the manga in print. Shueisha‘s MANGA Plus service can be publishing the manga in English digitally.

The manga is getting a tv anime adaptation at studio MAPPA (Jujutsu Kaisen, Dorohedoro, Attack on Titan The Final Season). Ryū Nakayama is directing the anime.
