I'm From Japan Manga Has 'Important Announcement' on May 27

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins

This year's 25th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Seiji Hayashi's I'm From Japan (Jimoto ga Japan) manga will have an "important announcement" in the magazine's next issue on May 27.

The manga's television anime adaptation premiered within the Oha-Suta program on April 8. New episodes air on Mondays within the program's new "Kyara Suta" segment.

Viz Media published the first three chapters of the manga in English as part of its "Jump Start" initiative, and Shueisha publishes the manga on its MANGA Plus app in English. Shueisha describes the story:

Tokio Abiko has left his hometown in Yamagata prefecture to enter school in the great metropolis of Tokyo. On his first day, he encounters one of his classmates, a strange boy called Japan Hinomoto. Tokio soon realizes that Japan is the master of a very peculiar martial art – Todofu-ken: the Metro-erritorial Pre-fist-ure Style! With each of the 47 styles themed after a prefecture of Japan, enjoy a hilarious and unique tour of the country!

Hayashi launched the manga in the magazine in September 2018.
