Posuka Demizu, the renowned illustrator behind The Promised Neverland, is officially working on a new Beyblade comic. Beyblade X, the most recent addition to the franchise, will follow the new generation of beybladers. This will be the first expansion of the anime series since 2017.
The new Beyblade project has been in development for quite some time now. Since the official announcement in March this year, we have an update on the franchise. Posuka Demizu, the manga illustrator mainly known for The Promised Neverland, is collaborating on this project.
Moreover, Posuka will be illustrating the work that will be accompanied by Kakegurui writers’ storytelling. As for the release date of Beyblade X, it’s set for Summer 2023. It will focus on the fourth generation of beybladers.
While we don’t have any details about the plot of the new Beyblade comic, we do know that it will follow the next generation of beybladers. For instance, each installment of the franchise has followed a new generation since the early 2000s.
The upcoming installment titled Beyblade X comes more than 5 years after the final episode of Beyblade Burst. Burst aired episodes from 2015, eventually concluding after one season in March, 2017.
The latest news about Demizu Posuka’s involvement in the new Beyblade project received mixed responses. Fans didn’t hold back when expressing their opinions, from being ecstatic about the launch of the Beyblade comic to being disappointed in Demizu. One fan even went as far as saying: “Such talent, why waste it on Beyblade?”
However, Demizu Posuka is one of the most esteemed illustrators of all time. Additionally, the world-renowned writers Hikaru Muno and Kawamoto Homura will be the manga’s writers. The new Beyblade comic will surely bring something different this time around.
Posuka Demizu’s most popular work is The Promised Neverland. While it’s great news that she has new projects in progress, disappointment arose after the release of the poorly executed season 2 of The Promised Neverland. Thus, fans are pondering: Why embark on new projects when the last one wasn’t done well?
Nevertheless, it’s still fantastic news to hear that Posuka is involved in this project. Perhaps she will be able to excel in the manga realm by creating amazing new Beyblade stories, something fans have been anticipating since 2015! Stay tuned for more updates on this and other manga and anime series.
