RuriDragon is a Shonen Slice of Life manga by Masaoki Shindo that was initially launched as a one-shot in 2020. Shonen launched the serialized model of RuriDragon simply final month. That’s positively a disappointing reality-check for followers who had been simply leaping into the manga.
As said, information of mangakas having to step again type scorching sequence as a consequence of poor well being has turn out to be a daily headline round right here. Just final yr, My Hero Academia’s Kohei Horikoshi, Jujutsu Kaisen’s Gege Akutami, and Black Clover’s Yuki Tabata ALL needed to take hiatuses as a consequence of well being points. It appears to be coming increasingly to gentle that the stress of making manga is one thing that must be addressed.
Here’s the premise of RuriDragon:
Ruri Aoki is an strange Japanese woman residing a traditional life, till one fateful day she wakes up with two horns sprouting from her head. At that time her mom reveals to Ruri that she’s half-human and her father is a dragon (“Ryu”). Ruri would not fairly see it as an enormous deal and decides to go to highschool as ordinary.
