Shonen Jump has announced Chainsaw Man’s creator Tatsuki Fujimoto’s one-shot manga titled ‘Look Back’ on its Twitter account. The tweet reads, “Look Back, Special One-Shot: A huge 140+ page one-shot…..When two students aspire to become manga artists, the paths they choose to change their lives forever.” Manga’s English version is accessible via the Viz Media website and Shueisha’s Manga Plus while Shonen Jump Plus provides original material in Japanese for free.
The 140+ page novelette accompanies two elementary school students who have set their hearts to become manga artists. Hence, they begin illustrating four-panel manga for their school newspaper. The story brings up subject matter for instance creative enmity, rise as an artist, and the helplessness to change the past. It lives up to the expectation of an emotional coming-of-age story that might serve as a semi-autobiography.
Following its end in 2020, Chainsaw Man fans are awaiting the second part which is currently in progression. For now, they’ve got some new material from the author himself, the 10th one-shot by Fujimoto. The one-shot is apparently unassociated with Chainsaw man concerning world-building and dark tone. However, it incorporates references to Chainsaw Man as background art.
The anime adaptation has been announced for Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Chainsaw Man for 8 months now. One month ago we witnessed a glimpse of Denji and Makima debuting in their gruesome prestige. Studio Mappa is known for adapting Weekly Shonen Jump hit Jujutsu Kaisen and Attack on Titan. However, there has yet to be a release date laid down for the anime adaptation with a teaser PV video (embed below) released at the end of June.
