According to a Japanese news source, the original creators of Death Note, artist Takeshi Obata and writer Tsugumi Ohba, are returning to create a new manga installment centered on a brand-new character named Minoru Tanaka, a boy who, for three years running, has been regarded as the most intelligent junior high school student in Japan.

A familiar face will be returning in the new installment, too—Ryuk, the Shinigami who owned the Death Note which came into possession of Light Yagami in the original series. Ryuk will be serving Minoru this time in this new world “where Kira no longer exists.”

No other details have been given about this new manga but the good news is that fans don’t have to endure a grueling wait for its release! The new Death Note installment will be appearing as a double-length one-shot story in the March issue of monthly manga anthology Jump Square, which goes on sale February 4, 2020.
