A few days ago I came across something that got my manga side really really happy. The return of Death Note. We haven't had a new chapter of this amazing manga since 2008 that awesome “one-shot” (a single story that was so fire it didn’t need a name!)
I was reading an article on Crunchy Roll That after a twelve-year hiatus a new one-shot chapter is dropping. This chapter will be brought to life with writer Tsugumi Ohba and drawn by Takeshi Obata. It will appear in the February issue of Jump SQ and on the Magazines website. The eighty-seven-page “one-shot” will be published in the next issue, Which goes on sale February 4th.
This new chapter plays with the idea that Ryuk once again "dropped" his Death Note. Clumsy Ryuk!
The Death Note gets a new owner and finds a new unfortunate soul to play with. The plot seems to continue on after the events of “Lights” story in the original manga. So happy days are near again. Let's all go out and grab a copy and send prayers up that they make it last a few more chapters this time. We loyal fans deserve more than a one-shot every decade.
If you need your Death Note fix there's always the movie on Netflix and the series is currently playing right now on Crunchy Roll.
Let me know in the comments if you are as excited as I? how do you think the new protagonist/antagonist will handle the power of the Death Note? Would you accept Ryuk Death Note if you came across it?
