posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Manga creator Kazuki Yamamoto launched a Campfire campaign on November 23 to fund a "new era project" manga for his Godhand Teru manga. Yamamoto stated the new project will have a new shape and will not be tied to his previous Godhand Teru manga.
The project aims to raise 4 million yen (about US$35,482), and has 39 days left. As of press time the campaign has raised 1,066,000 yen (about US$9,456). Yamamoto plans to launch the manga next spring or summer in Kodansha's Magazine Pocket app.
The original manga ran in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine from 2001 to 2011, and Kodansha published 62 volumes for the manga. The manga inspired a live-action television series that premiered in 2009.
The original medical manga follows Teru, a surgeon who seeks to follow in his brilliant father's footsteps. Although generally a clumsy and inept individual, in dire situations Teru exhibits "god hands" that allow him to perform even the most complicated surgeries.
