The new series, entitled Dr. Kiriko ~ Shiroi Shinigami ~ ("White Grim Reaper") is written by Yuuki Fujisawa and illustrated by sanorin. The setting for the series is updated to modern times. Unlike Black Jack, Dr. Kiriko has no qualms about practising euthanasia in order to end his patients' suffering.
The 1st chapter of Dr. Kiriko ~ Shiroi Shinigami ~ will be published in the Bessatsu Young Champion special issue that hits Japanese news stands on April 05, 2016.
