Koyoharu Gotouge (Demon Slayer): at what point is his new manga?

Koyoharu Gotouge (Demon Slayer)

At what point is the new manga by Koyoharu Gotouge? Surely this is the question that manga / anime fans are asking themselves and not after the great success, both financial and editorial, behind the phenomenon of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.

Demon Slayer was written and drawn by the Japanese artist from 2016 to 2020 and serialized on the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump, but the real exploit is to be credited to the successful anime adaptation of Studio Ufotable with the anime on television and in the cinema (in Italy the anime series is available both on VVVVID that on Amazon Prime Video, the film, on the other hand, is soon to be released in theaters for Dynit).

Given the great success, it is clear how the author is being asked about her next work but it seems that the next manga will not arrive any time soon.

In fact, according to Kohei Onishi (translation courtesy of Twitter user @ WSJ_manga), head of the editorial department of Weekly Shonen Jump, the author of Demon Sla yer has not yet decided or started the next work (in the meantime we start reading the recent success).

There will, therefore, still be waiting before discovering the author's next step . However, before that happens, it should be remembered (as reported by ANN) that not long ago the same manga artist had declared her intention of wanting to create a romantic comedy in a sci-fi sauce. Who knows, therefore, if he doesn't definitively decide to opt for a drastic change of genre compared to what was done previously.

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - manga and anime

Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is a manga written and illustrated by Koyoharu Gotouge. Consisting of 205 chapters and 23 volumes, the manga ended in May 2020. In Italy, the work is published by Edizioni Star Comics with 9 volumes available.

The manga inspired an animated series that aired from April to September 2019 with 26 episodes broadcast. The anime is produced by Studio Ufotable and is legally visible, free of charge and with both Italian subtitles and Italian dubbing on VVVVID (Dynit).

The sequel to the anime materializes with an animated film that adapts the narrative arc of the training released in Japanese cinemas on October 16, 2020. In Italy it will arrive at a later date for Dynit.

If you still don't know the work, here is a brief synopsis:

“Japan, the dawn of the twentieth century. Young Tanjiro, a kind coal seller, sees his daily life upset by the extermination of his family by a demon. The only one left alive is her younger sister Nezuko, who, however, has been transformed into a demon herself. To get her back as before and take revenge on the monster who killed her mother and siblings, Tanjiro sets out on a journey with Nezuko. Thus begins this story of blood, swords and adventure! “

When Will Demon Slayer's Movie Be Available at Home?

With Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba now continuing its run through theaters around the world, the big question for many is when exactly will it be available to watch at home? Dominating the box office in Japan since its initial release last Fall, and continuing its strong run through international territories to become the most successful anime film release of all time, the film is now making its way through the United States. While many have felt comfortable going to the theater amidst the COVID-19 pandemic due to the availability of vaccines and more, it's alright to feel hesitant.

Thankfully, it won't be that much longer until Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train is available to watch at home. While there has yet to be a confirmed release date for the physical Blu-ray and DVD release of the film for fans in the United States just yet, Aniplex of America has already confirmed that the film will be available to purchase digitally on June 22nd.

Whether you head out to one of the limited screenings in theaters or check out the film when it releases digitally this June, it's kind of necessary for fans to check out Mugen Train before the upcoming second season of the series. Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba confirmed a second season is coming our way this Fall, and it will pick up immediately after the events of the movie.

Taking on the Entertainment District arc of Koyoharu Gotouge's original anime series, if it's anything like the start of the Mugen Train film, there will be very little recap when the second season begins. You can also check out the original chapters the movie is based on through Viz Media's digital Shonen Jump library, but the movie is probably going to be the much more fun way of going about it!
