This year’s 16th issue of Shueisha, Grand Jump magazine announced on Wednesday that Terraformars (Terraformars) Kenichi Tachibana will draw a new sci-fi manga titled Gigantis, based on the author’s G-Gigantis novel Yoichi Komori , in the magazine’s next issue on the 4th. Takayuki Yamamoto is composing the story. The first chapter will include coloring pages and the manga will be featured on the cover of the issue.

Komori’s G-Gigantis novel premiered in May 2019.
Yū Sasuga and Tachibana launched the Terraformars manga in 2011. The manga went on an indefinite hiatus starting in December 2019, due to Sasuga’s recovery from recent health problems.

Viz Media is publishing the manga in North America and published the manga’s 22nd volume in December 2019 and the 21st volume in August 2019 along with an anime DVD adaptation of the manga’s Earth portion.
The first 13-episode television anime series adaptation of the manga’s spin-off premiered in September 2014, while the television anime sequel to Terraformars Revenge premiered in April 2016.
