Scum's Wish's Mengo Yokoyari to Publish 1-Shot Manga in February
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
This year's 24th issue of Shogakukan's Big Comic Superior magazine revealed on Thursday that manga creator Mengo Yokoyari will publish a one-shot manga in the magazine's sixth 2019 issue on February 22. The issue did not specify if the one-shot will be new.
Shueisha's Young Jump magazine recently announced that Yokoyari will end the Retort Pouch! manga (pictured at right) on December 20.
Yokoyari's Scum's Wish manga ran in Square Enix's Big Gangan magazine from 2012 until March 2017. Square Enix published eight compiled book volumes for the manga. The manga also received the Scum's Wish décor spinoff manga, which launched in Big Gangan in November 2017, and ended on May 25. Square Enix shipped a compiled book volume for the manga as the ninth volume of Scum's Wish on July 19. Crunchyroll published Scum's Wish digitally in English, and Yen Press is publishing the series in print in North America. Crunchyroll also simultaneously published Scum's Wish décor.
The manga inspired both a television anime series and a live-action series, which ran in parallel beginning in January 2017. Both series adapted the entire story of the manga. Amazon Prime Video streamed the anime series in Japan and abroad, including in the United States as part of its now-defunct Anime Strike service.
