Kingdom Hearts III manga series by Shiro Amano in the works

In the April digital edition of Shonen GanGan, it was confirmed that a Kingdom Hearts 3 manga series is on its way by Shiro Amano!

The future of the manga series seemed uncertain when Amano confirmed he'd be retiring the series after finishing the Kingdom Hearts 2 manga series. This piece of news is a welcome one to fans of the series! We will be updating you with more information when we have it.

Bonus if he adds in Final Fantasy characters. At least Seifer and his crew since SDG actually visit Twilight Town in the game.
Hopefully we can actually see him, Rai and Fuu

I wonder if this'll pave the way for a BBS adaptation, one can dream

I'm more excited for this then I am the DLC. The Kingdom Hearts manga was so lighthearted and charming, but also could keep to KH darker tones balancing them out very well. I can't wait to see the return of manga Kairi! Aka best Kairi :D

Great news, I’m really excited. Just imagine if Vanitas was yeeted into Sora’s mom room while she’s there too, either he takes off his helmet or it flies off lol. The confusion, the conceding, the hugs & the kisses.

This is very exciting news! I’ve always enjoyed Amanos take on the games. Especially Kairi. Manga Kairi is best. Maybe he can finally do her character some justice after 3 failed to do so :P

I'm really interested in seeing how he fills in the gaps for the other series' he's missed (namely: BBS and DDD, but not excluding Coded or 0.2 (only to get Aqua's side story)). Like, will it just be connecting 2 and 2 for KH fans? Or are other works in production? Only time will tell...

Ahhh this was good news to wake up to this morning It's nice to know Amano's back doing the manga again.
i wonder if he'll just skim over the material he missed or if he'll incorporate it into the new manga somehow. Either way, I'm excited

I'm curious about this.
KH1 and COM are bad, but KH358/2 Days and KH2 are good. KH 358/2 Days is really good actually.

This will settle the score for me.

AFTER THEN

KH1 and COM are bad.
Bad how? Just curious. KH1 is just basically a drawn version of the game, still, with Amano's humorous gags injected into it. CoM and everything after shows some improvement for its medium. While sparse on the Disney worlds in CoM (even if I would have preferred one or two more), it's nice to not have to retread KH1 turf a la the game experience. The original plot takes precedence, which is the sustenance of CoM anyways. Also, we get some great battle scenes, particularly the ones against Larxene. Whoever is responsible for the HD cinematics could have taken note of how Amano interweaved these into the story.

Let's see if Amano can do a justice for Arendelle's story here compared to the game.

Being basically a drawn version of the game is the main reason why it's boring to me. It doesn't try to do its own thing and taking advantage of the medium.

I'm not fan of his art back then, his painel composition can be a mess and most of his gag scenes aren't funny. All of that together makes it bad.

Nowadays I still don't find most of his gags funny, but he improved a lot in the rest and I trust him to make his mangas interesting and better than the games in some areas.

Personally I actually liked his art for the manga back then, more specifically how he drew Sora in CoM.
I don't why, but before the Days manga came around, I couldn't really get over how Sora looked in the early volumes of KH2. I know he was meant to be a year older, but he felt slightly off to me. I guess it was just the design at the time. It wasn't until the later volumes that, to meat least, Sora started to look like himself again.
Maybe it was just Amano gaining more experience at drawing the newer designs at the time or art evolution or something like that. Either way, I'm more than happy with how his look for Sora's KH3 outfit came out, and I can't wait to see it come to life on the page

A part of me feels perplexed that Birth by Sleep and Dream Drop Distance are being skipped? Maybe both those mangas are going to have X/Union Cross elements (assuming they get created)?
