No/Name, the new work of Cyberpunk: Edgerunners creator Rafal Jaki, has finally launched on Jump+ and MANGA Plus, placing it alongside some of the most famous and popular titles in the industry.
In a post on strange to be this close to Chainsaw Man..” The post can be seen below, introducing new characters from Jaki’s time — and some of the world’s most successful titles, such as Oshi no Ko , Kindergarten Wars and of course, Chainsaw Man.
Fans are fiercely divided over the new Chainsaw Man art style
Tatsuki Fujimoto’s latest Chainsaw Man chapter received a mixed reception from fans and critics for his seemingly new art style.
As major news agency Comic Natalie reported, Jaki became the first foreign author to debut on the Jump+ platform. Jaki entered No/Name in the MANGA Plus Creators competition, winning its first ever Gold Award. This is especially notable because the Gold Award is optional and is only awarded to truly outstanding works. There’s still a long way to go though, given the success of Jaki’s previous Cyberpunk: Edgerunners – for which he was showrunner and executive producer – as well as the frequency with which Jump+ titles receive anime , No/Name fans have good reason to expect an anime adaptation at some point.
Cyberpunk: Edgerunners’ Jaki joins other European Manga and Anime authors
Jaki joins an elite list of about 100 titles on Jump+, read both abroad and in Japan, as well as the growing small group of European creators making inroads into the Japanese space. Tony Valente’s Radiant became the first French manga published in Japan, and according to Manga Mogura, Juan Albarran, the artist behind the Kodansha Matagi Gunner manga, just announced his move to Japan to double his efforts. In the anime space, Frenchman Chansard Vincent has become a household name among animation enthusiasts.
Shonen Jump’s My Hero Academia Creator Translation The comment was unintentionally funny
Shonen Jump’s English translation of Kohei Horikoshi’s comments turned the My Hero Academia author’s words into something more lecherous than intended.
You can read No/Name by Rafal Jaki and Machine Gamu on Jump+ for Japanese fans and MANGA Plus worldwide (now free). The following describes the series: “No\Name is a Dark Action Mystery set in Northern Europe, where supernatural powers are attributed through a person’s name, given to everyone by the government. A man fights his wolf friends and a werewolf girl investigates a missing child case for the government-run Naming Authority.”
