KIMETSU NO YAIBA News: NEWS COMES FROM JAPAN THAT KIMETSU NO YAIBA WILL HAVE A NEW SPIN-OFF, AND SOME DETAILS ARE BEGINNING TO BE REVEALED
Although the Kimetsu no Yaiba anime continues, the manga has already ended. Its creator, mangaka Koyoharu Gotouge, has made it clear that she has no plans to create a sequel or anything like that.
The most she has contributed to is creating alternate stories of her characters. This allows to expand a little what is already known about them, and it is something that more than one fan has accepted. But it seems that something is on the way, but not exactly on their part.
THE KIMETSU NO YAIBA MANGA ENDED A LONG AGO
According to a new report, a spin-off or derivative manga is on the way. His name will be Kimetsu Gakuen. It will be published in Saikyo Jump magazine starting August 4.
It’s a job on Natsuki Hogame’s part, and even though she has Gotouge’s approval, she won’t be participating. So it cannot be taken as part of the general canon. Sure, unless information emerges that indicates otherwise. But what does this new work look like?
Unfortunately, the report is too preliminary. The fact that it does not have a name similar to Kimetsu no Yaiba with an added subtitle suggests that it could be very different from the original.
The term “Kimetsu Gakuen” could imply many things. Will it be a comic-type spin-off? It is common for successful series to have related creations that go on the humor side. But at the moment it is not possible to assure anything.
THIS SERIES SPIN-OFF COMES FROM THE HANDS OF ANOTHER AUTHOR
This spin-off may well not be the last in the series. The fact is that as long as the anime exists, there will be more than enough reasons to create projects derived from the adventures of Tanjiro Kamado and company.
Whether Koyoharu Gotouge is involved in them is another matter. The reason is that this author is currently exploring other ideas and stories. A previous report suggests that she is exploring science fiction for her next manga.
Ultimately, she has been so successful with Kimetsu no Yaiba that she can do whatever she wants. If Shueisha shows no interest in any of her projects, it is likely that any other publisher will welcome her with open arms.
Returning to the topic of Kimetsu Gakuen, fans are sure to welcome him with open arms. It’s been a long time without anything new in print. The publication will be in Saikyo Jump magazine.
