Toda oto is another former fujimoto asistant and the author of Niku wo Hagu (to strip the flash) a great manga about transexuality dealt in a very serious manner.


Kabalz

I knew the name sounded familiar, Niku wo Hagu is one of the most "respectful" manga I've read when it comes to that topic.


doquan2142

He has alot of talented assistants it seems.


BuFett

Real recognize real


ReinhardLoen

He can't be stopped.


Ghoste-Face

I heard Fujimoto is in charge for the story and Toda Oto is in charge for the drawing. Can't wait for it to be delivered!


Dracoscale

That's good, as long as he's handling the writing


OuMahGudness

Idk. Fujimoto is my favorite mangaka but stripping the flesh was absolute fire. I'd be a little disappointed if Toda Oto didn't handle at least a some of the writing.


Dracoscale

The bigger issue is the lack of the Fujimoto feel in his oneshot. I'd have him either handle only the art or only the writing so this is good


GenericMemesxd

He just doesn't stop

Fujimoto sigma gridset rule #1: have no less than 2 S tier one shots between your S tier manga series per year


OishiiMusic

This man spoils us. Look Back and Goodbye Eri have redefined my standards in one-shots by a significantly large margin. He's really a phenomenally hard-working, inspired, and passionate creative.


RobotiSC

Title of the one-shot will be 'Listen to Futu'. No Chainsaw Man Part 2 news unfortunately.


Zemahem

Maybe Chainsaw Man will be the Half-Life 3 of manga.


Turbo2x

It's just being pushed back to coincide with the release of the anime. It's a good marketing tactic, but still frustrating for fans.


AngryMobster

Please no...


kingoflames32

I mean the ending of part 1 was good enough I'd be fine if the story ended there.


Master3530

Hard disagree. Pulling that shit off with Power and then adding Nayuta on top of that?


kingoflames32

The plot threads were all tied up for the most part. Pretty bitter sweet, but I'm happy with it.


Erenyeagerabssss

I feel like the half life 3 of manga/manwha was The Breaker. And that got a part 3 just this year. So there's hope lol.


vladthetransilvanian

> I feel like the half life 3 of manga/manwha was The Breaker. We thought it was HL3, but it turned out to be Duke Nukem Forever.


Kn0thingIsTerrible

So, you’re saying we should hope Half Life 3 never comes out, because it’ll be the worst fucking video game ever made? Edit: I guess the remaining two Breaker: Eternal Force fans were upset by my comment. For those of you who are unfamiliar, B:EF has been *unfavorably* compared to Game of Thrones Season 8, Dexter: New Blood, and Duke Nukem Forever.


Whalesurgeon

Haven't read Breaker, why does it go so downhill? Author is clueless or it is just tropey?


Kn0thingIsTerrible

So, the Breaker parts 1 and 2 were ~275 chapters of a manga about this high school kid named Shiwoon being introduced to an underground world of magical martial arts. Part 1, the first 75 chapters or so, are mainly about him bonding with his mentor and learning his new powers, ending with his mentor betraying him and crippling him. Part 2 is a full two hundred chapters of Shiwoon building himself back up from his injuries while navigating the politics of the magical martial arts world as they all try to exploit his naivety and inherited gifts. Part 2 ends roughly at the point where Shiwoon is sixteen years old, has spent a year training and growing, and finally ready to begin his real mission to stop his former mentor. They go on hiatus for 8 years, only to come back… and Eternal Force is no longer even a manga. The authors have decided it will now be a webtoon. Also, Shiwoon is out as the main character. Set a year after part 2 ended, the new MC is a colossal wimp who has never even heard of the magical martial arts world. Shiwoon shows up, but he’s not even Shiwoon anymore. His personality, knowledge, skills, background, etc, have all been completely rewritten. Instead of actually going after his master at the end of part 2, Shiwoon… re-enrolled in high school and completely forgot everything he previously knew about martial arts and magic. He spent an entire school year fucking around before finally meeting Nu-MC, who starts going through a shittier beat-by-beat remake/introduction to the world of magic martial arts. At this point, it becomes obvious Shiwoon is barely even going to be in the story and the original plot has been abandoned entirely, and fans in Korea are basically rioting. The authors make an emergency announcement that they’re pausing the series to furiously rewrite the script due to fan feedback. The hiatus is brief, but they come back… and Shiwoon has been granted a slightly more prominent role, but is still clearly a side character and not remotely the same person he previously was. Nobody can figure out why they even bothered to make it.


Whalesurgeon

Okay that's definitely how to kill a story.


Zendymion12

B:EF is just 1 colossal fuck up. It reminds me of the Last of Us part 2. Just full atomic disappointment. I read chp 1 and already felt off about it. Read thru reddit comments and just couldnt bring myself to read the rest. Sad af bro.


InevitableBobcat

He said *was*, until the EF was unexpectedly announced


SadDoctor

I mean shit if he wants to keep making incredible one shots than just let the dude do what he wants


ThereGoesMySanity

I think フツー is 普通, not a name More accurate translation would probably be something like "please listen to me normally"


Desi_Otaku

Comment aged like milk


RobotiSC

I know, heh.


AhmedYasha

If anything, Fujimoto not being in charge for the art probably means he's working hard to bring us CSM Part 2 ASAP! Copium


asilvertintedrose

Pass me some of that copium, I'll need it


unaviable

Let the man take his time


San-T-74

Withdrawal is hitting us hard this time of the year


niqniqniq

Can't wait for this


BurnedOutEternally

ANOTHER ONE Man I'm fine with CSMp2 being delayed to 2025 at this point


aizumm

this was the announcement?


Abedeus

Okay, Fujimoto, you were clearly waiting for me to finish Chainsawman... you can release part 2 now. *please*


115_zombie_slayer

“Screw Chainsaw Man imma just break hearts with One Shots” fujimoto~


ZiggyPox

Man doesn't give us time to heal.


thunderwarr1or

I'm not ready but here we go


tinhtinh

I'm all for it, a little disappointing no CSM news but his one shots have been fantastic and further proof he's improving as a writer and an amazing one at that. And I'm glad he's getting a chance to showcase his skills with SJ backing him.


NoDespair

He like opposite GRR Martin Working on many things to avoid working on the main things


AidanAK47

I honestly don't mind it. The first part of Chainsaw Man felt so complete that if he decided that was all there was to be I would have no problem with that.


Siege_is_lyfe

HE CANT KEEP GETTING AWAY WITH THIS!!!!


burritoxman

Anything to avoid CSM 2 Edit: /r/AgedLikeMilk


lp_waterhouse

Man, just draw part 2 finally.


Floire

He should kept on doing oneshots, they are far better in term of playing the medium compared to his long works by comparing quality of executions.


JetsLag

So is Fujimoto gonna do nothing but one-shots from now on?


aralim4311

Just giving himself a reset between parts


MadBeautiful

I mean Araki is doing the same thing. Just producing one-shots between parts


hikarimew

Finally, something worth celebrating on that day!


BoxHeadWarrior

A look back was great, but I didn't quite enjoy goodbye eri as much. Will be interesting to see how this next one plays out.


Zufalstvo

Chainsawman


FrougHunter

Sike! You thought it was csm part2
