It has been confirmed that the mangaka will once again give wings to one of his most successful works ever
Junji Ito is the face of Japanese horror, especially at the level of international references, and stories like his iconic “Tomie” resonate with many simply by pronouncing his name. If there is any regret that can be found for the mangaka, it is the fact that he has not yet had an anime that really lives up to his original works as an author. Luckily, the same Ito-sensei always returns to leave new proposals on his part, such as in this case a new chapter of “Tomie“.
Tomie will be back in action in a couple of months with more manga
Next I leave you with all the information that is known about the return of “Tomie”the first work that Ito-sensei published in his already extensive career (via MangaMogura):
- First of all, it has been confirmed that The new chapter of Tomie’s manga will receive the official name ‘Tomie Control’. 😍
- Likewise, the chapter in question will be published during April 12, 2024, and will land in Nemuki+ magazine (specifically in volume number 5 of the current fiscal year). Nemuki+ is the magazine that Tomie picked up after Monthly Halloween, where Tomie originally debuted, closed more than 20 years ago. 😁
- Does this new chapter mean that Junji Ito is preparing to unleash a whole new Tomie saga? Well at the moment I have no idea. The only thing that is known is that, the return of the work through ‘Tomie Contol’, so we will have to wait to see what the author’s plans are with a work that initially ended its publication many years ago. 😮
And in case anyone has heard a lot about “Tomie” but has never been very clear about what exactly this manga by Junji Ito is about, I leave you below the official description of the story according to ECC Editions (the publisher that is in charge of publishing the manga in Spain):
What is Tomie’s manga about?
Tomie is a mysterious girl whose charms drag men towards an unbridled passion that unleashes madness in them. She sows terror in her various forms, sometimes she will do it alone and other times, helped by truly disturbed people, victims of her shocking spell, leading a spiral of passion, madness, obsession, bizarreness and sordid deaths.
