Fire Punch's Fujimoto begins new series on December 3

This year's 52nd issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced on Monday that the magazine will launch three new series this winter.

Tatsuki Fujimoto (Fire Punch) will launch a "dark hero action" manga titled Chainsaw Man (pictured above) in the first 2019 issue on December 3. The manga will adorn the front cover and its debut chapter will have 54-pages, including color pages. The preview for the manga reads, "What is Denji's fate after sacrificing his life and fighting due to debt?"

Fujimoto launched Fire Punch on Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ website and app in April 2016, and ended it on January 1. Viz Media is publishing the manga in English. The manga was nominated for the 10th Manga Taisho Awards, and the 2017 edition of Takarajimasha's Kono Manga ga Sugoi! (This Manga Is Amazing!) guidebook listed the manga at #3 on its list of manga for male readers.

Author Tomohide Hirao and artist Mizuki Yoda will launch ne0;lation (pictured below) in the magazine's second issue on December 10.

The creators previously serialized a three-chapter manga titled ne0 (pictured below) in Shueisha's Jump Giga magazine from May to July. They also previously teamed up for the one-shot manga "Legacy," which ran in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2016 as part of the 11th Gold Future Cup.

Natsuki Hokami will launch Gokutei Higuma (pictured below) in the magazine's third issue on December 17.

Hokami previously serialized a manga titled Higuma no Te in Jump Giga, and Shueisha published a single compiled volume (pictured below) in December 2017.
