VIZ is set to give anime & manga fan three new gifts this December!

VIZ Media is set to give anime & manga fans some real gifts this holiday season with their newly announced December releases!

First-up is Bleach Blu-ray Set 5. Showing off Ichigo and his allies continued fight against the malicious Arrancars in gorgeous HD, this Blu-ray set comes jam-packed with all kinds of goodies that fans will absolutely love.

“As Ichigo fears the growing strength of the Hollow within him, the Soul Society detects an attack on the World of the Living by Arrancars—Hollows with Soul Reaper powers created by the traitor Sosuke Aizen! Ichigo rushes to the aid of his friends, but his Hollow interferes. Can Ichigo master his inner self in time to help defeat the threat of the Arrancars? And who are the mysterious Visoreds who are interested in recruiting him?”

Next, are two new publishing debuts on their way through VIZ Media. The first being popular Shonen Jump seriesJujutsu Kaisen” by Gege Akutami.

“In a world where cursed spirits feed on unsuspecting humans, fragments of the legendary and feared demon Ryomen Sukuna were lost and scattered about. Should any demon consume Sukuna’s body parts, the power they gain could destroy the world as we know it. Fortunately, there exists a mysterious school of Jujutsu Sorcerers who exist to protect the precarious existence of the living from the supernatural!”

And the second is “No Longer Human,” an adaption of prolific Japanese author, Osamu Dazai’s classic work done by horror legend, Junji Ito.

“Plagued by a maddening anxiety, the terrible disconnect between his own concept of happiness and the joy of the rest of the world, Yozo Oba plays the clown in his dissolute life, holding up a mask for those around him as he spirals ever downward, locked arm-in-arm with death. Osamu Dazai’s immortal―and supposedly autobiographical―work of Japanese literature, is perfectly adapted here into a manga by Junji Ito. The imagery wrenches open the text of the novel one line at a time to sublimate Yozo’s mental landscape into something even more delicate and grotesque. This is the ultimate in art by Ito, proof that nothing can surpass the terror of the human psyche.”
