The manga classic is making a comeback

It has been 14 years since the last chapter of the Japanese manga “Death Note” was released. The series, written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, debuted in 2003 and ran until 2006, and still remains one of the most popular manga series. The series garnered a massive following that it went on to spawn an anime adaption and well as several live-action movie adaptions.

But in some new and exciting news, it has been announced that the series will be returning with a one-shot-87-page chapter on Feb. 4.

The new chapter is said to take place sometimes after the events of the original “Death Note” as the shinigami Ryuk’s fatal notebook falls onto Earth once again. A visual to accompany the new release was shared on Jump SQ’s official website, but other than that, details are very limited in regard to the chapter itself.

The original “Death Note” series revolved around ace student Light Yagami who finds a mysterious notebook that was dropped onto Earth by the shinigami death god Ryuk. After learning that the book’s supernatural ability to kill anyone whose name is written in its pages, Light vows to use the notebook to rid the world of criminals, triggering a massacre of people whom he deems morally unworthy of living. In the midst of Light’s reign of terror, an elite task-force of law enforcement officers, led by L— a mysterious international detective—work around the clock to apprehend the man behind the killings.
