To celebrate the birthday of hit anime series Reborn!, creator Akira Amano dropped some big news: the manga edition is about to be reprinted in comic book form.
The Reborn! manga started running in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2004, two years before the anime adaptation was created. Since then, Shueisha has collected the individual chapters in collections. The new run will collect the series in 21 volumes in compact "comic bunko" size, with two volumes released per month.
In addition, each volume will have completely new cover art. The art will be reproduced for 21 postcard-sized prints, which will be available as early-order bonuses.
Reborn! re-enters print starting November 17.
