In the most recent issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, readers bid farewell to Daisuke Enoshima’s “Fabricant 100” manga as it reaches its conclusion. Alongside this significant closure, the magazine also unveils three brand-new manga series set to grace its upcoming pages.
Debuting in December 2022, “Fabricant 100” originally emerged as a one-shot creation in the October 2021 edition of Weekly Shonen Jump during the magazine’s Golden Future Cup project. This dark fairy tale revolves around a doctor’s relentless pursuit of the “ideal human being.”
After the doctor’s demise, his fabricant creations turn against humanity, seeking to attain the perfect physique. Ashibi Yao, who tragically loses his entire family to these vengeful fabricants, embarks on a journey of revenge accompanied by the doctor’s ultimate creation, Fabricant 100. Both Viz Media and MANGA Plus have taken on the English publication of this gripping tale.
The “Fabricant 100” manga has now concluded its run. Shueisha released the first compiled volume in Japan on April 4, with the third volume hitting the shelves recently. Readers can look forward to the release of the fourth and final fifth volumes on November 2.
Looking ahead, Weekly Shonen Jump’s 41st issue, scheduled for release on September 11, will introduce Yoshihiko Hayashi’s “Mama Yūyū,” a “new normal fantasy” manga set in a world where society has chosen to coexist with the enigmatic Demon King, causing turmoil for the Hero.
In the magazine’s 42nd issue, releasing on September 19, Takeru Hokazono’s “Kagurabachi” will take center stage, delving into the life of Chihiro, the young son of a skilled swordsmith.
Lastly, the 43rd issue, hitting the stands on September 25, will usher in Elck Itsumo’s “Two on Ice,” a manga that revolves around the world of figure skating and the fateful encounter between figure skater Hayuma Minekoshi and a mysterious young girl.
These three new manga series are part of the magazine’s JUMP NEXTWAVE releases and come from the talented minds of Yoshihiko Hayashi, Takeru Hokazono, and Elck Itsumo, all of whom have been recognized as previous nominees for Shueisha’s prestigious Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize award.
