In the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, they confirmed that the author of Assassination Classroom and Neuro: Supernatural Detective, Yūsei Matsui, will begin a new manga. The title of the new work will be Nige Jouzu no Wakagimi (The Young Master of Escape), and it will release next week on January 25th with the cover of the issue dedicated to it as well. The title may be a bit confusing in English, so here’s some help from Bushido Samurai:
Nige – Nige-ru meaning Escape, Run away, avoid, etc.
Jouzu – This word might sound familiar to you thanks to Takagi-san series. It means Master, being good at something, etc.
no – In this case, it works to connect words like “of”.
Wakagimi – Waka from Wakai meaning Young, gimi is Kimi, one of the honorifics to show respect
The author’s popular Ansatsu ran from July 2012 to March 2016. The cover of the first volume:
The series also received 2 anime seasons for a total of 47 episodes. The story:
A humorous and action-packed story about a class of misfits who are trying to kill their new teacher – an alien octopus with bizarre powers and super strength! The teacher has just destroyed the moon and is threatening to destroy the earth – unless his students can destroy him first. What makes things more complicated is that he’s the best teacher they’ve ever had!
On the other hand, Neuro: Supernatural Detective ran from February 2005 to April 20, 2009, and it also got a 25-episode anime in 2007/2008. The story:
The always-hungry Yako Katsuragi is a super famous high school-aged detective who cracks the hardest of cases with ease – at least, that’s what the general populace thinks! Behind the scenes, Yako is helped by Neuro – a maniacal being from the demon world who is looking for new mysteries to devour. Alongside local detectives and a helpful sidekick, Yako and Neuro will solve the unique and the bizarre cases that plague the city; but will Yako ever discover the truth behind her father’s supposed “suicide”?
If the new manga from the author is anything like Assassination Classroom, I can’t wait to check it out! Once again, it releases on January 25 in the 8th issue of this year’s Weekly Shonen Jump.
