Fujisawa Plans to Resume GTO: Paradise Lost Manga
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Manga creator Tohru Fujisawa announced on Wednesday that he will resume his GTO: Paradise Lost manga in Kodansha's Weekly Young Magazine after he finishes the two chapters of his Re: Animal Joe manga.
Fujisawa put the manga on hiatus after finishing its first part. He put the manga on hiatus due to a staff shortage, and said that once he can set it up so he can publish the manga weekly again, he will resume the series.
Fujisawa launched the spinoff of his GTO (Great Teacher Onizuka) manga in Weekly Young Magazine in April 2014. Kodansha published the manga's 11th compilerd book volume in January 2018.
Crunchyroll previously offered the manga online, including the latest chapters as they came out in Japan, but the company ceased offering catalog chapters of the title last year. Kodansha Comics also publishes the manga digitally in English.
Tokyopop and Vertical published the various GTO manga titles, including GTO: The Early Years, in North America. The original manga inspired a television anime, as well as several live-action adaptations.
Fujisawa also plans to launch his Red Data Planet manga with co-creator Iomaru in Akita Shoten's Bessatsu Shōnen Champion magazine starting on July 12.
Update: The 25th issue of Weekly Young Magazine revealed on May 20 that the GTO: Paradise Lost will resume in the magazine's next issue on May 27.
