Tatsuki Fujimoto’s Goodbye Eri Is Already One of This Year’s Best Manga


Tatsuki Fujimoto is back in the headlines this week, and the artist has his most recent project to thank. After all, the mangaka just released a massive new one-shot, and it is just as good as fans anticipated. In fact, some are calling the series his best yet, and it’s definitely worth a read if you haven’t picked it up right now.

For those needing some context, Fujimoto put out a 200-page one-shot this week courtesy of Shonen Jump. Shueisha released the chapter digitally after teasing fans about the project for a couple of weeks. Of course, fans were excited to see what Fujimoto came up with, and the slides below prove just how obsessed readers are with the project.

After all, Fujimoto is a rare sort of artist who can deal action as well as introspection. His work on Chainsaw Man blends the two easily enough, and the shonen is packed with violence. As for this new one-shot, Goodbye Eri leans into slice-of-life scenes more often than not, but its dark undercurrent is quintessentially Fujimoto. And now, fans are dying for Shueisha to release this latest manga in print so it can join their shelves at home.

If you have not read Goodbye Eri, you can find the full one-shot online in English. Viz Media has shared Fujimoto’s work for free through its Shonen Jump vault here.

It’s Like Magic

I don’t know how Tatsuki Fujimoto does it, but these one-shots of his cut deeper than any other manga I’ve read before.

It’s like he peers into my soul and creates a story exclusively tailored to my history and my psyche.

An Actual Masterpiece

Fujimoto’s mastery over the basics of composition never cease to amaze me. Even with Goodbye Eri’s limited format, small movements, dialogue placement, and scale effortlessly guide the reader across page after page.

There’s absolutely no wasted space and it’s beautiful. pic.twitter.com/jW8PmwxByy

A Definite Buy

I genuinely liked “Sayonara Eri” by Tatsuki Fujimoto. I don’t want to spoil too much but he skillfully played with my expectations & knowledge of the tropes to the point where I got insecure about what & who is real now. Def buying the tankobon
