The comic debuted as a double-length one-shot story in the March issue of monthly manga anthology Jump Square and centered around Minoru Tanaka, a boy who, for three years running, has been regarded as the most intelligent junior high school student in Japan and becomes the latest human to utilize the power of Shinigami Ryuk in this new world “where Kira no longer exists.”
