The official Twitter account of Tokyo Ghoul creator Sui Ishida put a new update of his most awaited manga “Choujin X” which confirms Chapter 2 titled “Don’t cross! Two Choujins” will release on June 29.
The brand new chapter of Choujin X will release at 21:00(JST) on 29th June, 2021 in the next Young Jump issue. Ishida also shared a new teaser visual for the upcoming chapter.
Previously, not so long ago the mangaka tweeted on June 9th, he confessed that he was almost finished with the drawings for the new chapter. The upcoming chapter will release very soon.
Furthermore, there were several sneak-peeks of the new chapter found on Ishida’s recent live stream.
Based on the information provided by Reddit user u/Nietzsche_esque, in Ishida’s YouTube live stream he mentioned that the upcoming chapter will have 80 pages.
About the plot covered in the chapter, the reddit user explains the following:
-Ely is getting saved by some handsome looking Chad with a remarkable chin, similiar to the dream husband she envisioned in the plane
-Tokio is probably going through some existential crisis (scene reminds me of kaneki starring at the mirror after turning into a ghoul to cope)
– Also I’m not 100% sure on this, but Tokio’s hair is seemingly turning into a more greyish/white tone (this could explain one of Ishida’s first artworks of Choujin where Tokio was next to Ely wearing some kind of uniform with a depressing look and similar-looking hair)
User u/Nietzsche_esque also shared some snippets from the mangaka’s live stream.
Just like any other Sui Ishida work, this chapter will also have tons of spreads. He is currently working on the last 10 pages. Considering the pace of his work, the Choujin X chapter 2 will drop in about 2-3 weeks.
As mentioned before by the author, the series does not have a fixed release schedule, with the chapters set to come out when he finishes them. It seems that readers will have to wait for long for new chapters to drop as he takes things at his own pace.
Sui Ishida’s brand new manga Choujin X began serialising in Tonari no Young Jump web service (comes under the Shueisha family) and also on Manga Plus and Shonen Jump (Viz Media) apps on May 10, 2021. Choujin X, which translates into Superhuman X, revolves around people who have superhuman powers.
The series is based in an alternate reality where creatures called Ghouls live amongst humans. They look and act like humans except they feed on humans. The story revolves around a young boy Ken Kaneki who accidentally ends up becoming a half-ghoul. The story focuses on Kens’ struggle to accept his new identity as a ghoul and feeding on humans. The series received critical acclamation, globally.
