This year’s 31st issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that the “Kimetsu Gakuen!” The anime shorts derived from Koyoharu Gotouge’s Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba manga will have their own manga series.
The new manga, titled Kimetsu Gakuen !, will debut in the September issue of Shueisha’s Saikyō Jump magazine on August 4. Natsuki Hokami (Hell Warden Higuma) will draw the manga, and the manga will feature the characters in a super warped style.
The four Valentine-themed shorts “Kimetsu Gakuen! Valentine-hen” premiered on February 14. The shorts present the characters of the manga in a school setting.
The characters Tanjiro, Nezuko and Giyu Tomioka as they appear in the shorts will appear in the upcoming video game Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles (Kimetsu no Yaiba: Hinokami Keppūtan) as playable characters.
Gotouge launched the original manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in February 2016. The manga ended in May 2020. Shueisha published the manga’s 23rd and final compiled book volume in December 2020.
The manga inspired a television anime that premiered in April 2019. The series was followed by the anime film Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba – The Movie: Mugen Train in October 2020. The franchise’s new television anime, Kimetsu no Yaiba: Yūkaku-hen (Entertainment District Arc), will be released this year.
