Bakemonogatari's NisiOisin Writes 9 Manga One-Shots in 4 Months

posted on by Emma Hanashiro

This year's 49th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump will announce on Saturday that writer NisiOisin (Bakemonogatari) will write nine Manga ONE-shots in four months in Weekly Shonen Jump, Jump Square, Young Jump, and Bessatsu Margaret. For this project, NisiOisin wrote each story based of the image he associated with a particular word chosen for the one-shot's theme. Each one-shot will have a different manga artist.

The November issue of Shueisha's Jump Square magazine previously announced two of the one-shots. Manga artist Takeshi Obata (Death Note, Bakuman., Hikaru no Go) and NisiOisin are creating the manga "RKD-EK9" based on the word "paradise," while manga creator Akihisa Ikeda (Rosario + Vampire) and NisiOisin are creating the manga "Nan Made Nara Koroseru?" (Until What Will You Keep on Killing?) based off the word "animal." The two manga stories will both have a color opening page as well as art on the cover of Jump Square's December issue, which will ship on November 4.

The seven other Manga ONE-shots are as follows:
