Ruri Dragon Announces Long-Awaited Comeback

Ruri Dragon Announces Long-Awaited Comeback

On the official Twitter account for the manga written and illustrated by Masaoki Shindo, "Ruri Dragon", it was announced that the popular work will finally resume in this year's fourteenth edition of Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, which will be published in the first week of March. The book will publish five chapters in the magazine (i.e., one per week) and on April 22 it will move to the Shonen Jump Plus service to become a fully digital publication with new chapters every two weeks.

Ruri Dragon Announces Long-Awaited Comeback

It should be recalled that "Ruri Dragon" became a trend immediately after the start of its publication in June 2022. Unfortunately, the work went into indefinite suspension in August of the same year, just two months after the start of its publication, due to a decline in the author's health.

However, the affection that the fan community had for the few chapters that managed to be published (and even the first compilation volume is available) continues to be reflected to this day. As it turns out, Ruri Dragon got the ninth position in the list "Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2024", which compiles the recommendations of the best manga of the moment based on opinions from fans and members of the publishing industry.

Evidently, the fact that "Ruri Dragon" is now moving to Shonen Jump Plus, where author Masaoki Shindo will not be obliged to publish a new chapter weekly, is with the aim of not pressuring the author to meet deadlines. It is clear then that, although the work will resume in March with new weekly chapters, readers should get used to the idea that the work will change its publication schedule in April.

Synopsis of Ruri Dragon

Ruri Aoki is an ordinary high school student, until one morning she discovers horns coming out of her head. Confused and unimpressed by the change, she shows them to her mother. However, her mother is unfazed and reveals a shocking truth: Ruri is half-dragon.

Although Ruri doesn't know what to make of this sudden change, he decides to go to school as usual, hoping that another normal day awaits him. But it doesn't take long for her best friend, her classmates, and her teacher to realize that something is wrong. Ruri realizes that being half-dragon is going to be a lot more chaotic than she expected.
