VIZ Media has announced that Goodbye, Eri by Tatsuki Fujimoto, the mangaka behind the wildly popular Chainsaw Man series, is receiving an English translation.
According to the Twitter post, the one-shot will arrive in stores in the United States in the Summer of 2023. Goodbye, Eri follows Yuta Ito, a young filmmaker, as he deals with the recent death of his mother and "meets a mysterious girl who holds an explosive secret." The manga premiered on Shueisha's Shōnen Jump+ website back in April and garnered over 2.2 million views within a day of its debut.

While Fujimoto has produced multiple manga, including Goodbye, Eri, he is best known for his Chainsaw Man series, which appeared Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump starting December 2018 until the publisher moved it to Shōnen Jump+ in 2020. So far, the iconic and bloody series has produced 12 volumes worth of content. The story follows Denji, a poor young man struggling to pay back a massive amount of debt left behind by his late father. With the help of a dog-like entity named Pochita, he uses his power to transform his limbs into chainsaws to kill devils; however, after being betrayed by his gangster employers, Denji finds himself recruited by a government agency with the responsibility of neutralizing monstrous threats.
The anime adaptation of Chainsaw Man will premiere on Oct. 10. Animated by studio MAPPA (Attack on Titan: The Final Season), directed by Ryu Nakayama (Fate/Grand Order – Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia) and written by Hiroshi Seko (Jujutsu Kaisen), the show will star Kikunosuke Toya (Tokyo 24th Ward) as Denji, Fairouz Ai (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean) as Power, Shogo Sakata (Sk8 The Infinity) as Aki Hayakawa and Tomori Kusunoki (My Senpai is Annoying) as Makima.

Crunchyroll confirmed an English dub of Chainsaw Man at NYCC. It will feature the voice-acting talents of Reagan Murdock (The Genius Prince's Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt), Ryan Colt Levy (Moriarty the Patriot), Sarah Wiedenheft (Arifureta – From Commonplace to World's Strongest) and Suzie Yeung (Wonder Egg Priority).
According to the creative team behind the highly anticipated anime, Chainsaw Man will not shy away from the explicit content of Fujimoto's manga. "We are not censoring anything. We want to be true to the source material," one of the producers stated at a panel earlier this year. The show's trailer further confirmed the show's ultra-violence and gore.
The Chainsaw Man manga is distributed in English by VIZ Media.
