posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The October issue of Akita Shoten's Champion RED magazine revealed on Monday that manga creator Akihito Yoshitomi is preparing a new manga series. The magazine did not reveal a date for the new manga's debut.
Yoshitomi ended the Eat-Man The Main Dish manga on June 26. Kodansha published the manga's sixth and final volume (seen right) on August 8. The manga launched in Kodansha's Monthly Shonen Sirius magazine in May 2014.
Yoshitomi drew his original Eat-Man manga from 1996 to 2002. The story follows Bolt Crank, a man who can eat anything and reproduce it in his right hand. The original manga received anime adaptations in 1997 and 1998. Bandai Entertainment previously released Eat-Man `98 on DVD with an English dub, and Discotek Media released both anime with English subtitles on DVD. Crunchyroll began streaming both anime earlier this month.
ADV Manga published Yoshitomi's Ray manga, while Section23 Films released the Ray television anime and the Blue Drop anime inspired by Yoshitomi's manga of the same name. Yoshitomi also drew Cyborg 009 Vs. Devilman: Breakdown, the manga adaptation of the Cyborg 009 Vs. Devilman crossover anime. The one compiled volume shipped in April 2016.
