Shonen Jump Teases Big Announcement for Isobe Isobee Monogatari

posted on by Karen Ressler

This year's 47th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump will announce on Monday that Ryō Nakama's Isobe Isobee Monogatari ~Ukiyo wa Tsurai yo~ (The Story of Isobe Isobee ~Fleeting Life is Difficult~) will have a "shocking" announcement in the next issue on October 26.

Nakama originally published the manga as a one-shot, then he launched the serialized version of the manga in Weekly Shonen Jump in October 2013. Shueisha describes the manga as follows:

A loser samurai—Isobee, who lives in any way a dawdling, slacking life, takes action (sort of) in the city of Edo. Weekly Shonen Jump's gone mad with a new style Ukiyoe Gag Manga!!

The series inspired a series of Flash anime shorts beginning in December 2013.
