It manifests itself in everything from seashells and whirlpools in water to the spiral marks on people’s bodies, the insane obsessions of Shuichi’s father and the voice from the cochlea in our inner ear. As the madness spreads, the inhabitants of Kurozu-cho are pulled ever deeper into a whirlpool from which there is no return!

Masashi Kishimoto new manga is here!

Image result for samurai 8

It has been a while since the original Naruto manga has ended. Currently running, we have the Boruto manga which is being supervised by the original creator. However, if you want more Naruto-esque series, I got good news! If you have a Shonen Jump account, Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto has just revealed and released the manga of his next work Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru. The manga story was created by Masashi Kishimoto and the art is being done by Akira Okubo. According to the Wiki, he is one of the seventh assistance in Kishimoto’s job and he helped do the Naruto manga in volume 16. If you’re wondering, Mikio Ikemoto is also one of Kishimoto’s assistance but he is also in charge of the manga Boruto: Naruto Next Generation.

Shonen Jump describes the series:

Samurai 8: Hachimaruden is a sc-fi manga that follows a weak boy named Hachimaru, who can’t survive without a life-support system and has never left his house. While dreaming about becoming a “Samurai” that has a machine body and power beyond human, he has spent his days only by playing online games. The story starts moving when a cat, calls himself a “Samurai,” appears in front of him.

Here is what Masashi Kishimoto said when talking to Viz:

Masashi Kishimoto comments:

Q. “If you give an abbreviated name or nickname for Samurai 8: Hachimaruden…?”

 

Kishimoto: “I want some part of the word ‘Samurai’ to be included. I know it is a bit difficult title to be

shortened. Let’s see…, well, please call it ‘SamHachi!’ I think it is just right. However, it is only my hope.

Please use any abbreviated name that is easy for you to call (laugh).”

 

Q: “Message to the readers.”

 

Kishimoto: “As announced at the Jump Festa at the end of last year, I have been struggling to exceed my

previous work Naruto!! (laugh). Because I had taken hiatus from a weekly serialization work, my sense is

now as same as that of amateur artists. However, the pressure from around is so strong (laugh). I want

them to go easy on me. …But I understand if I keep talking so complacently, any manga can be cancelled

so easily in Shonen Jump, so I brace myself to do my best. Then all I can do left is to send it to the readers.

Its serialization starts this week. So everyone, please read my latest work ‘Samurai 8 Hachimaruden’!

Thank you very much!”

 

 

Masashi Kishimoto
