I heard this from my friend Ezra that his favorite RomCom manga series Kaguya-sama: Love is War will become an anime and I felt compelled to write the news. Revealed at ANN, the manga series Kaguya-sama: Love is War, created by Aka Akasaka, will be getting anime adaptation. You can check out the official website and Twitter to stay updated on any news. The creator also drew this illustration below to commemorate the manga’s green-lit success.
The manga is licensed by Viz Media and here is the following synopsis:
All’s fair when love is war!
Two geniuses. Two brains. Two hearts. One battle. Who will confess their love first…?!
Kaguya Shinomiya and Miyuki Shirogane are two geniuses who stand atop their prestigious academy’s student council, making them the elite among elite. But it’s lonely at the top and each has fallen for the other. There’s just one huge problem standing in the way of lovey-dovey bliss—they’re both too prideful to be the first to confess their romantic feelings and thus become the “loser” in the competition of love! And so begins their daily schemes to force the other to confess first!
Also, Happy Birthday to Ezra! His birthday was in June 10th and I bet he is proud to hear this news. 🙂

Do you recall the news about Rurouni Kenshin Hokkaido Arc returning on June 4th? According to recent news, the manga is out of hiatus and returned to the Shonen Jump magazine in Japan; however, this did happen in America. According to Viz, English company in charge of releasing the Weekly Shonen Jump manga and magazine in America, they did not include Rurouni Kenshin Hokkaido Arc and they extended the hiatus. If you were wondering why didn’t Kenshin return in your digital magazine, Viz did not allow the manga to return and extended the hiatus meanwhile in Japan, it is back.
If did not watch the recent Avengers movie “Avengers: Infinity War”, do not read this part of this news. The following will have spoilers from this point. I will not go into depth, but this will your last warning.
The podcast video was uploaded yesterday, but this marks five years since the North American publishing team Weekly Shonen Jump started the podcast. In this video, the team gets interviewed by the head of the podcast Urian and he asks the team how does it feel to work with manga. These are the people in charge of the online magazine and each member has helped on other manga volumes such as One Piece, Haikyuu! and Dragon Ball Super. If you like the manga and Shonen Jump, I highly recommend either reading the free chapters on their website or if you want more exclusive content like special one-shots, manga releases at the same time as Japan and reeving free rare Yu-Gi-Oh! cards, subscribe for an annual subscription.

Remember the recent news about the author of Rurouni Kenshin and his crime on child pornography? I got an update today about his crime and punishment.
Recently reported today, the Tokyo Public Prosecutors Office filed an indictment on the creator of the manga Nobuhiro Watsuki (his real name is Nobuhiro Nishiwaki). The Tokyo Summary Court has ordered Watsuki to pay a fine for his crime for the price of 200,000 yen (in American dollars, that’s $1,900). Watsuki must now pay for the things he did.
If you don’t know what I am talking about, Reported in the fall of 2017 (In October), the police in Japan reported and arrested Watsuki for possessing DVDs of child pornography in his office. Police also found he had pornography in his home as well that goes way back in July 2015. Even Watsuki admitted that the underage girls (ages in late elementary and second year middle school) look attracted.
In result for his crime, the recent and new Rurouni Kenshin manga, The Hokkaido Arc, will be indefinite hiatus and it’s unknown if it will come back.
HxH fans can rejoice because the on and off series Hunter x Hunter manga is expected to come back on January 29th. The last time we saw the manga, it was on chapter 380 and it starred Kurapika in the Dark Continent arc. The recent chapter recently stopped in August 31st. Let’s hope this stays longer in the Shonen Jump magazine. Are you guys excited for the return?
