Samurai 8 | Featured ImageComing to you straight from the mind of Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto, Samurai 8: The Tale of Hachimaru’s first chapter is now available for your reading enjoyment. Featuring artistic assistance from Akira Okubo, also of Naruto fame, this introductory chapter spans 72 pages and sets the stage for more chapters to come. Both the original Japanese and translated English versions are available as of today. Those who wish to read the English copy of the manga can do so for free on either Shonen Jump’s official website or the Shonen Jump app. Subsequent chapters will release each week and will also be available for free. Before reading any of these though, be sure to also check out Chapter 0.1 which released just a few weeks earlier (April 26th).

In addition to Samurai 8, other new titles have been added to the website as part of the Shonen Jump digital vault. These titles include JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Parts 1-3 (Phantom Blood, Battle Tendency, and Stardust Crusaders), Golden Kamuy, and One-Punch Man. You can access all of these additional manga titles starting today if you hold a Shonen Jump Vault membership ($1.99/month). More details on that service can be found here.
