25+ BEST Upcoming Manga Released (Or Ongoing) in 2023!

Publishers appear to be focusing on a combination of classic and contemporary series in 2023, including additional works by outstanding authors like Sui Ishida, the author of one of my favourite horror mangas, Tokyo Ghoul, and Tatsuki Fujimoto, the author of Chainsaw Man and Fire Punch.

I also added those if new manga format releases, such as omnibuses, collector’s editions, or manga box sets, start serialization or debut in 2023.

It might be challenging to keep track of all the new manga publications scheduled in a year, with so many new licenses being announced every week.
