What do a demon slayer and a straw-hatted rubber pirate have in common? Nothing! Except they’re both the subjects of Viz Media’s new releases next month…what’s coming to manga shelves?
First off, Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer manga is about to be officially published in English in the US. Description is as follows:
Set in Taisho-era Japan, the kindhearted Tanjiro’s peaceful life is shattered when a demon slaughters his entire family. His little sister Nezuko is the only survivor, but she’s been transformed into a demon herself! Tanjiro to sets out on a dangerous journey to find a way to return his sister to normal and destroy the demon who ruined his life.
Demon Slayer is already slated to become an anime series….get ahead of the pack by getting into the paper version. Volume One hits next month!
Next, the One Piece Color Walk Compendium is about to hit, compiling the three Color Walk art books that are now out of print. Covering East Blue to Skypiea, this massive volume contains over 300 pages of full-color art and illustrations, as well as pull-out posters and interviews between Eiichiro Oda and other famous manga artists, including Akira Toriyama. For you completists, Color Walk 3 was never released in English, so….double-dip time.
