Volume 1 of the Kagurabachi manga revealed the cover ahead of the February 2 release date in Japan. Takeru Hokanozo’s manga began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in September of last year and so far has 15 chapters out.
MANGA Plus is publishing the Kagurabachi in English – the manga quickly became one of the top titles on the platform. Currently, it is 10th on the Hottest Manga list with 134,154 views (closely trailing behind Oshi no Ko and Black Clover: popular WSJ titles such as Boruto: The Blue Vortex, Chainsaw Man, ONE PIECE and Jujutsu Kaisen are dominating the top list). The plot is described as:
Young Chihiro spends his days training under his famous swordsmith father. One day he hopes to become a great sword-maker himself. The goofy father and the serious son–they thought these days would last forever. But suddenly, tragedy strikes. A dark day soaked in blood. Chihiro and his blade now live only for revenge. Epic sword battle action!
New chapters of the manga are released every Sunday – the next chapter is slated for January 21.
