posted on by Egan Loo
This year's eighth issue of Shueisha's Grand Jump magazine announced on Wednesday that Jigoku Sensei Nube is returning with a one-shot manga, 15 years after the series ended in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. In the new "Jigoku Sensei Nube: Ōmagatoki" story that will run on April 2, the title teacher Meisuke "Nuubee" Nueno will meet a new female instructor.
The next Grand Jump issue will also publish the latest chapter of the Reibaishi Izuna Ascension spinoff manga. The series stars Izuna, an exorcist girl who appeared in Jigoku Sensei Nube.
Nuubee stars in the original manga series as a young male teacher whose left hand is an "oni hand." He resolves cases by using the power of his left hand to purify evil spirits.
Sho Makura and Takeshi Okano serialized the original manga from 1993 to 1999. Nuubee is a playable character in J-Stars Victory Vs., the crossover fighting game that just debuted on Wednesday on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
