In a highly competitive industry like Japanese comics, where new series are released every day, it's hard to figure out which works deserve attention. This time, however, Shonen enthusiasts can follow a surprising recommendation from Kohei Horikoshi, the author of My hero academy.
Recently, there have been several mangakas who have shared reading tips on social media, such as Hiro Mashima or the master Yoshihiro Togashi, respectively authors of Fairy Tail and Hunter x Hunter, and Horikoshi also wanted to take advantage of Twitter to share the reasons for appreciating one new series: Dragon and Chameleon by Ryo Ishiyama.
"Ishiyama has a great passion for shonen manga. You could say that he is someone who loves manga madly. This work is how Ryo Ishiyama is. The manga about being a mangaka is written in blood and bone, body and mind', with these rather direct words, Horikoshi explained why he follows Dragon and Chameleon with great attention.
A reaction that, as you can see from the post below, also affected Ishiyama himself: "I'm super happy. Really. Thank you very much! I will cherish your comment for the rest of my life." We recall that the The first tankobon of the series will be released on April 21, 2023 in Japan. Finally, here are the spoilers and images of Chapter 386 of My Hero Academia and the unreleased illustration of Kendo signed by Horikoshi.
Horikoshi wrote a comment on the cover obi of Volume 1 of Ryo Ishiyama's Dragon and Chameleon! Rough translation attached.
It is a Freaky Friday style body switch manga about a genius mangaka and a failed mangaka who switch bodies. Volume 1 will be available on April 21, 2023. pic.twitter.com/rjScTUXr3n— 渋谷スマッシュ 𖣔 ☾ ˎˊ˗ (@shibuyasmash) April 15, 2023
