Hi can someone please tell me what does Spin-off mean ??

Is the manga going to be different e.g. New hero or Different ending (Satoru X kayo)

Or whatever? Any examples e.g. Is this going to improve The Orginal manga?

Hm...I don't really like spin-off, but this series is really good, so maybe it will turn out to be a good one too. Thank you for the interesting news.

Its this year's parasyte. Its this year's attack on titan. Its this year's death parade.


I think it's similar to rokka no yuusha. The way the plot gets criticized, and the hype it gets.


Rokka was actually a good show and one that was way too underrated.


AOT, Parasyte and Death Parade are the 5-6/10 shows that for some reason get blown out of proportion in terms of hype for absolutely no reason.

I think that Kei Sanbe mentioned before that there would be some extra chapters covering things that he couldn't fit in the manga.

And the thing with the teacher it's a serialized publication in a magazine that began last year and ended recently. The "book" is just a compilation of all published chapters.

I don't like spin-offs, crossovers, uninspired sequels/prequels, comedic OVA's, but they didn't really make this to milk the success of the anime, they were published before.

And most anime viewers wouldn't check any of the side material, except if they made an OVA from this.

That's milking.

Yeah but they are just watching the anime not reading/buying the manga.
And why people care if "they are milking it"? As if they are buying the manga.
Lastly, It's the people's choice if they are gonna buy this new manga or not. It's just business after all.

Manga spin-off, novel spin-off, live-action movie, I just can't wait! Even if it'll be not as good as I expect (well, I don't expect much from spin-off), I still want to watch/read it, becouse ending wasn't satysfying and I want to see anything from Erased universe.

I will read it out of curiosity, and the lightnovel too out of curiosity, but Im not looking forward to more content.

Its probably going to be 1-2 volumes max, why y'all getting heated for no reason calling it milking.
Because it is milking. Spin-offs in their entirety are just shameless money grabs to try and keep the series in question relevant.

Wow, I'm kind of excited. Probably will be about Satoru's classmates and their stories, or it could be interesting and be about Satoru himself and discovering his revival power, I don't remember him mentioning when he started having revivals. Anyway, can't wait to see what will be done.

Oooh, that sounds interesting. And Boku Dake's getting a light novel too which "explains the real motive of the killer" (^‿^)

Don't click on the link to the light novel news because the light novel cover has some manga spoilers.
So... is that mean the motive wont be explained in anime? that's sucked

It just brushes over it. And pls don't expect anything from anime with 3 vol to cover.
I think it will show the story abt the other char(his friends) in the second timeline.
It will be more salty then though. For eg

Actually, the novel about the teacher was serialized in a magazine and the book that would be published soon would be a recopilation.

I'm not really interested in this novel, apparently it wasn't that of a success as a serialization in Japan.

The spin-off seems more like some extra chapters than a spin-off, some pages give the wrong idea, that it would be a new story.

I wonder if shippers would get their romance in this extra manga.

hope it will be good and not a story about a theft of a chocolate bar :)

Mar 4, 2016 2:21 AM by Nisx

Will it be all about how much of a struggle it is being a chocolate bar in this universe?


Gotta milk dat overrated cow while its still hot.

You guys smell that... Smells like milk to me and I suckled on my mothers teats for over a year , so I would know what milk smells and tastes like.
I'll have a taste when it releases and pretty sure already it will taste like milk as well (Not in the good kind).
