During the day, the new Volume of Death Note was released in Japan today, which was introduced by Jump SQ last December and bears the title Death Note short stories. Commenting on the launch, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata, the two writers of the series, said that "it's nice to be back after so many years" and that they hope the manga doesn't offend anyone.

""It's been a long time since the series ended"said Obata,"But now we're back with a number of interesting short stories. You never know what can happen in this world"Tsugumi was much more direct and asked fans to forgive inappropriate jokes:"Now that the world is battling the coronavirus, I'm in no mood to joke the start. I just hope things get back to normal soon. Please forgive any inappropriate jokes in the manga but that is my style. It would be nice if you could always write something I am not ashamed of, but please accept this side of me too. I've always been like that. Thanks for the support".

Death Note Short Stories is a collection of old chapters spread over 17 years of serialization and has a total of 226 pages. Among the present chapters we find the one-shot from 2020 with Minoru Tanaka, the one-shot from 2008, which takes place three years after the Kira case, and Near, the one-shot pilot who preceded the start of the official series, the two short chapters about L's past and the entire Yonkoma published from 2003 to 2006 (chapter consisting of 4 cartoons). At the moment we don't know whether the work will arrive in Italy or not.
