Not only that, but it will keep pace with the Japanese Jump SQ serialisation of the manga.
The US Platinum End manga series will run in Viz Media's digital Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, matching each new edition with English translations available on-line at the same time.
However, chapters are going to be individually published, with readers paying 99c a time to follow the unfolding tale.
Platinum End appears to be closer to Death Note's plot than the creative duo's interim collaboration Bakuman.
Ohba and Obata's new manga follows the fortunes of a boy named Mirai Kakehashi, who 'does not seek hope in order to keep on living'. While Light Yagami's worldly frustrations found vent in a shinigami's deadly notebook, we don't yet know what happens to Mirai.
But a supernatural entity is also lurking, as may be assumed by the tale being about 'a human and an angel'.
How that encounter plays out is yet to be seen.
