Ruri Dragon

It is worth remembering that “Ruri Dragon” became a trend immediately after the start of its publication in June 2022. Unfortunately, the work went into indefinite suspension in August of the same year, just two months after the start of its publication, due to a decline in the author’s health.

However, the affection that the fan community had for the few chapters that were published (and even the first compilation volume is available) It continues to be reflected to this day. It turns out that Ruri Dragon got the ninth position on the list “Kono Manga ga Sugoi! 2024”, which compiles recommendations of the best manga of the moment based on opinions from fans and members of the publishing industry.

Obviously, the fact that “Ruri Dragon” is now moving to Shonen Jump Pluswhere the author Masaoki Shindo will not be obliged to publish a new chapter weekly, It is with the objective that the author is not pressured to meet delivery deadlines. It is clear then that, although the work will resume in March with new weekly chapters, readers should get used to the idea that the work will change its publication schedule in April.
