VIZ Media Announces New Manga at Anime Boston 2017


DEATH NOTE All-In-One Edition Debuts This Fall; NARUTO: CHIBI SASUKE'S SHARINGAN LEGEND Among Three New Shonen Jump Manga Titles To Receive Digital And Print Releases

San Francisco, CA – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), a premier company in the fields of publishing, animation distribution, and global entertainment licensing detailed the acquisition of several notable new Shonen Jump manga properties this past weekend during its official panel event at Anime Boston 2017.

One of the most successful manga of all time will receive premium collectible  treatment in the DEATH NOTE All-in-One Edition, debuting Fall 2017. The monstrously large edition collects the complete 12-volume series in one massive book, and includes an epilogue chapter never before seen in English.

Two titles currently serialized on the Shonen Jump site will receive a digital-first full volume debut followed by a print release. Fans can look forward to NARUTO: CHIBI SASUKE’S SHARINGAN LEGEND, an action-packed comedic spin-off focusing on one of the most-loved characters from the best-selling manga series created by Masashi Kishimoto. The science fiction survival epic ASTRA LOST IN SPACE will also receive a digital-first and print volume release. Continuing chapters of both series are available for FREE on!

In addition, the fan-favorite and chilling suspense drama THE PROMISED NEVERLAND will make the leap from the pages of WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP digital magazine to a full manga volume release! The first volume will debut first digitally in October, followed by a print debut in December.

Additional information on each of these titles will be announced in the near future.
