GTO's Tohru Fujisawa to Launch Soul Reviver Manga Series

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Tohru Fujisawa's story of half human, half Shinigami to premiere in Shogakukan's new Monthly Hero's mag

The premiere issue of Shogakukan's new Monthly Hero's magazine revealed on Tuesday that the magazine's January issue will premiere a new manga from Tohru Fujisawa (GTO, GTO: Shonan 14 Days) titled Soul Reviver. Fujisawa is handling the manga's scenario and original character design, and Manabu Akishige (D-ASH) is illustrating the manga. Soul Reviver revolves around a woman who is half human, half Shinigami and whose job is to accompany the souls of the dead to the world of the Shinigami.

Fujisawa had also drawn an illustration for Monthly Hero's premiere issue.

Fujisawa is also launching a new series called Shibuya Hachikō-Mae -another side- (In Front of Shibuya Station's Hachikō Exit -another side) in the January issue of ASCII Media Works' digital magazine Dengeki Comic Japan on November 25. Akitsugu Mizumoto will illustrate that manga.

Tokyopop published Fujisawa's GTO in North America. In 2009, Fujisawa returned to the character of Onizuka with Shonan 14 Days. Vertical announced in May that it licensed both GTO: Shonan 14 Days and Shonan Junai-gumi (the predecessor to Great Teacher Onizuka) for North America. Fujisawa just finished Shonan 14 Days this year, but he is launching a three-chapter spinoff this month.
