- Yuuma Uchida (the voice of Megumi Fushiguro from Jujutsu Kaisen)
As chapters are released in Japan, Yen Press releases the manga in English. According to Yen Press, the manga’s plot is as follows:
It’s a showdown for the ages as the legendary hero takes on the corpse god necromancer, but when the dust settles, something isn’t quite right… In the final moments of their epic confrontation, the corpse god’s final gambit shot was wholly unexpected — reincarnation magic! Across space and time, a boy named Polka Shinoyama awakens feeling…not quite himself…… Who could’ve expected that the climactic battle between good and evil would turn out like this??
In October 2017, Narita and Fujimoto published the manga in Square Enix’s Young Gangan magazine. Square Enix released the manga’s ninth compiled book volume on April 25, and the tenth volume will be released on November 25. On September 27, Yen Press released the manga’s eighth volume.
The manga adaptation of Narita and illustrator Katsumi Enami’s Baccano! has been released by Fujimoto (Red Raven). The Young Gangan light novel series began in October 2015 and ended in January 2017. In April 2017, Square Enix released the manga’s third and final compilation book volume. Yen Press licensed the manga and released the chapters digitally alongside the Japanese release, as well as the manga volumes physically.
Narita launched the continuing Baccano! In 2003, Katsumi Enami illustrated a light book series. The series will be published in North America by Yen Press. In 2007, an anime based on the series was created.
