Story and art by Yasunobu Yamauchi, it is the only work of this author that is familiar to the public. The announcement of the new series was made in the Gangan Online web page (the manga has been serialized by Gangan for the time being).  Considering the site is owned by Square Enix, this project definitely has the predispositions to be something really good.

      1. Well, I was thinking more target-wise… I believe it’s aiming for the Bleach audience more than at the Gintama one, but who knows?! :)

  1. Sounds boring, tbh. What’s good, though is that big companies are actually having a go with a webtoon… Good luck to Yasunobu Yamauchi. :)

    1. Dn’t forget that it’s Square Enix’a gangan that serializes the webton, so it’s not exactly as though it’s absolutely innocent and un copyrightprotected and user-made. There is still a long path to be walked ’till we get to see a good webtoon comic by a totally unknown artist get an adaptation.
