Tatsuki Fujimoto’s new one-shot manga Just Listen to the Song (Futsu ni Kiitekure) is now officially out in both Japan and overseas. The one-shot was written by Fujimoto and illustrated by Oto Toda (To Strip the Flesh). Overseas fans can read the 20-page story in English on Shueisha’s Manga Plus platform through Viz Media. The one-shot was announced on June 29, along with a cover for another Fujimoto’s story – Goodbye, Eri.
Both Tatsuki Fujimoto and Oto Toda are known for incorporating mature topics in their works. Fujimoto is best-known for Fire Punch and Chainsaw Man, both serialized through Shueisha’s platforms. Fire Punch was serialized from 2016 to 2018 on the Shonen Jump+ app, while Chainsaw Man started serialization in 2018 in the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. It ended in 2020, and the second part is expected to start on July 13 on the Shonen Jump+ app.
Oto Toda is best known for his To Strip the Flesh (Niku wo Hagu) manga series. Viz Media licensed it in English and describes the plot as:
Chiaki Ogawa has never doubted who he is, although the rest of the world hasn’t been as kind. Bound by his mother’s dying wish, Chiaki tries to be a good daughter to his ailing father. But when the burden becomes too great, Chiaki sets out to remake himself in his own image and discovers more than just personal freedom in his transition—he finds understanding from the people who matter most.
