Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Sirius magazine announced in its next issue preview on Wednesday that manga creator Akihito Yoshitomi's Eat-Man manga will have a new series published in the magazine beginning on May 26 in the June issue. The title of the newest addition to the series will be announced in the April issue of Shōnen Sirius, which is scheduled to be released in Japan on March 26.
Kodansha also announced that beginning March 26, the manga will be re-released one chapter per week on Nico Nico through Suiyōbi no Sirius (Wednesday Sirius).

Viz Media published the manga in North America, while Bandai Entertainment licensed the anime. Yoshitomi published a one-shot manga titled Otome Claw (Maiden Claw) in Akita Shoten's Weekly Shonen Champion magazine last year.
