Kochikame Manga Returns to Jump With New One-Shot Chapter


After 40 years of serialization, Osamu Akimoto’s Kochikame manga came to an end in the pages of Weekly Shonen Jump in 2016. A handful of bonus chapters have been published since, most recently in August 2022, and now a new one-shot is on the way after nearly a year of absence from the magazine. 

The one-shot—titled “Kibou no Entotsu (Natsu) -1963- Kankichi-tachi no Natsuyasumi” (Chimney of Hope (Summer) -1963- The Summer Vacation of Kankichi and Company)—will launch in this year’s 32nd issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, which hits stands in Japan on July 10. This marks the third entry in the Kibou no Entotsu storyline, which centers on Rin Akatsuki, a singer who works in the Senju Thermal Power Station.
