Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump magazine recently unveiled that Satoru Noda’s highly anticipated ice hockey sports manga is set to premiere in the publication’s upcoming 35th issue on July 27th, marking an exciting addition to the manga lineup.
The magazine previously unveiled Noda’s plans to revive his beloved ice hockey sports manga, Supinamarada! (depicted on the right). According to the Hokkaido Shimbun newspaper, the much-anticipated return is slated for a spring 2023 debut. Although the magazine hasn’t disclosed the title of the new manga, it still refers to it as a recreation. Interestingly, both the original and the upcoming manga feature characters donning the jersey number 66.
Set in Tomakomai, Hokkaido, the original Supinamarada! manga revolves around Rō Shirakawa, a talented ice skater with Olympic aspirations. When an unforeseen family tragedy shatters his dreams of Olympic glory, Rō encounters the Genma brothers, two hockey players who introduce him to the exhilarating world of ice sports.
Supinamarada! marked Noda’s debut work before he created the critically acclaimed Golden Kamuy. Launching in July 2011, Noda’s manga gained popularity in Young Jump magazine before concluding in November 2012. Shueisha published a total of six compiled volumes for the series.
Following the success of Supinamarada!, Noda embarked on a new journey with Golden Kamuy, captivating readers since its launch in Shueisha’s Young Jump magazine in 2014. The enthralling manga series concluded its run in April 2022, further solidifying Noda’s reputation as a talented storyteller.
