A recent leak claimed that the one-shot manga written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto, "Look Back," will be getting an anime adaptation. The leak is pending official confirmation, although the domain "" has already been registered from Japan. In addition, it is also worth remembering that Tatsuki Fujimoto is the author of "Fire Punch" and "Chainsaw Man."

For his part, Tatsuki Fujimoto released the original one-shot through Shueisha's Shonen Jump Plus digital service in July 2021. In August of the same year, it was revealed that the scene showing a paranoid man entering an art school with an axe, claiming that he had been plagiarized by a student, was altered upon publication due to negative reviews. Many pointed out that this was a reference to the arson attack on Kyoto Animation studios in 2019.

Synopsis of Look Back

Ayumu Fujino, a fourth-grader, regularly draws four-panel manga for her school's newspaper and is praised for having the best artwork in her class. One day, his teacher asks him to give one of his manga slots in the school newspaper to an absentee student named Kyomoto. When Kyomoto's manga appears alongside Fujino's, it receives high praise for its detailed illustrations, which provokes Fujino's jealousy.

Fujino refuses to be defeated by someone who barely goes to school and dedicates himself to learning how to create manga. However, as time passes, his goal of eclipsing Kyomoto seems more and more distant, and Fujino, now in sixth grade, eventually gives up and stops doing manga. Graduation day arrives and Fujino is asked to give Kyomoto his graduation certificate. By chance, the two end up coming face-to-face, and their unexpected encounter will end up having consequences far beyond what either of them could predict.
