Wow, I remember being very confused about why there wasn't a volume 13 yet and have seriously been waiting 10 years for this. I was just telling a friend about how he shouldn't complain about Berzerk's delays too because of this.

Lol, I have forgotten about this..... weird. I used to really love the anime, maybe I'll read it now since it's resuming.

YES!!!!!!

Beet was one of the manga that served as my gateway into the medium. I remember being so frustrated when I learned that the series just stopped part way and had given it up for dead.

Hopefully time hasn't passed it by and it'll do well enough to keep going and not just give us a rushed ending.

Well, I guess this is a sign I need to go back and catch up with Beet. Made it through the first five volumes before life happened and my focus shifted elsewhere, but I enjoyed it, and always wished the creators well.

This was my no. 1 manga that I wished would return one day, but I had long given up hope! I'm honestly shocked!

I really hope this also leads to Viz re-releasing the manga. IMO, it's the best Shonen Jump manga that no one has read. It's amazing, the only problem being that it stopped when things were getting even better. Man, I can't wait.

To be honest, I had no idea this had a chance of coming back. Glad to know that it is. It's not a complex series, but it's earnestness in it's world and stakes make up for a lot.

More than Hoshin Engi? Wink

Well this is certainly some surprising news. I never expected this to come back.

TBH, I've only read a handful of Hoshin Engi, so I'll have to come back to you on that.

Lol. Very Happy I love Hoshin Engi, and despite it's Shonen Jump heritage, I consider it to be vastly underread (and underrated!), much like Beet the Vandal Buster.

Wow, I never would have thought I would see the story be continued. Awesome that they are doing this. That's why you never say never. Miracles exist. Now I need to try and find the old volumes so I can catch up again.

It's BACK!!! I'm so happy right now; I remember this as one of the first manga I ever read. The others being Hikaru no Go, Ranma 1/2 and this Shoujo manga that I can't remember the name of.

It's glad to see that it will be continued after all of this time. Now for High School of the Dead to "properly" continue.

Woah!

Someone mentioned this on Reddit (I never see it mentioned), & I casually saw the Wiki page.

The Jump ads & previews for this manga were hype.

Can't believe it's back. Oh, my God!
