Kagura Bachi is an upcoming Shonen manga series that is receiving a lot of attention from the fan community through images of the main character.
Recently, after a poster said to have the appearance of the main character of the manga Kagura Bachi appeared, it caused a stir in the social networking community. Fans have begun comparing the series’ main character to famous and iconic characters of all time, including Bleach’s Ichigo, Demon Slayer’s Tanjiro, and One Piece’s Zoro. Honestly, it’s surprising to see fans so excited about the release of a brand new manga.
Kagura Bachi attracts attention even though the first chapter has not yet been released.
Chapter 1 of Kagura Bachi is yet to be released but is scheduled to premiere next week in WSJ issue 43, which will premiere on September 18, 2023. The series has already started making noise on social media with the first leak.

The shonen genre is known for manga that have dark and gritty themes with lots of bloodshed. Some of the best examples are Jujutsu Kaisen, Death Note, Demon Slayer, etc. Leaked information about the Kagura Bachi manga confirms that its story will be no different – we will see a swordsman searching for way to avenge evil.
The first leaked images of Kagura Bachi gave us a glimpse of the main character. A teenager with black hair and red eyes holding a Katana. Besides that, the art style can also be seen in some leaked images of the first chapter.
It’s hard to say whether it’s the next shonen blockbuster or not. But through the leaked images and the art style of the poster, we can expect a success for the work, especially when many other shonen blockbusters are in the process of ending.
