Death Note Short Stories Collection Releasing Next Year


Death Note is a manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata. It was serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump from 2003 to 2006, and collected into 37 volumes. The plot tells of Light Yagami, a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook that grants him the power of “death” with which he can kill anyone whose name and face he knows.

The death note 2021 is a collection of short stories that will be released next year.



A collection of short tales based in the Death Note world, written by the series’ authors, will be released next year! Last year, Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata surprised fans by releasing a completely new tale set after the events of the original Death Note, which envisioned how a new character might react to receiving the Death Note after all of the waves Light Yagami created during his time as Kira. But it isn’t the first time they’ve returned to the universe of the series to tell fresh tales. 

In reality, the two creators had compiled each of these short tales into a new book that was published in Japan last year. This featured not just the new one-shot sequel, but also previously unreleased tales. Fans outside of Japan will now be able to read these new short tales for themselves, as Viz Media revealed at New York Comic-Con that the collection would be released in the summer of 2022. The following is the official announcement from Viz Media on Twitter: 

Kira’s tale is over, but the Death Note’s is not… The effect and legacy of the famous Death Note are explored in this creative collection of short tales by the series’ authors. Summer 2022 is the release date!

Death Note: Short Stories is described as such by Viz Media “The Death Note’s narrative is finished, but Kira’s isn’t… The effect and legacy of the famous Death Note are explored in this creative collection of short tales by the series’ authors. Summer 2022 is the release date!” As previously said, this includes the new one-shot that the writers whipped up as an official sequel, which introduced a new main character to Ryuk and the Death Note, as well as a whole new method to utilize the notebook that caused so much problems in the first series. Last year, the two creators also discussed their views on the new short story collection. 

Takeshi Obata, the series’ artist, said, “The series must have stopped a long time ago, but it has suddenly been resurrected as a collection of short tales. In this world, you never know what will happen.” Tsugumi Ohba, the author, issued the following statement: “I don’t feel like making a joking remark now that the whole globe is battling the new coronavirus. For the time being, all I can do is hope that everything will go back to normal as soon as possible. Please accept my apologies if the manga contains some jokes, since this is my style. Please accept the fact that the author’s abilities are restricted. It’s possible that I should only work when I’m confident in my ability to create something I’m proud of, but I’ve felt embarrassed to be evaluated on my writings since I was in elementary school. Please accept my sincere apologies for everything. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.”
