Even though the story will be just a “One-Shot”, it will be a meaty one as the next chapter will cap at a thick 87 pages! The new story is said to focus on Ryuk bringing the titular notebook once again to the human world, which actually continues where the main story has left off.
Though its most likely that we’ll see the first publications of the manga in Japanese language, its safe to say that can expect an English translation to follow.
