‘Eiichiro Oda’s ‘Monsters’ 1-Shot Manga Published in English by Viz Media

The Viz Media’s Shonen Jump platform posted Eiichiro Oda’s one-shot manga “Monsters: Ippaku Sanjō Hiryū Jigoku” translated in English under the title “Monsters” gearing up for Monday.

This manga provided inspiration for the “Monsters: 103 Mercies Dragon Damnation” anime series that had its debut in Japan on Monday and was launched outside Asia on Sunday via premiere on Netflix.

The star-studded cast includes:

  • Yoshimasa Hosoya is the voice behind Ryuma
  • Kana Hanazawa lends her voice for the character Flare
  • Cyrano is brought to life by Hiroki Tōchi’s voice
  • D.R. is voiced by Mitsuaki Madono
  • Master is portrayed by Katsuhito Nomura

Hosoya returns to voice Ryuma, the same character he portrayed in an earlier voice drama adaptation.


The anime has been described by Ani-One Asia as:

Set in a world where the only possible threat to disrupt peace is from the heavens, the dragon can bring about catastrophic devastation to this world. This story is a legendary one-shot manga adaptation by the young creator, Eiichiro Oda, even before he started with “ONE PIECE”. This anime tells the tale of Samurai Ryuma.

The director of ‘Jujutsu Kaisen’ and ‘Jujutsu Kaisen 0’, Sunghoo Park, was the director of this anime and also wrote the scripts. His new studio E&H Production was responsible for the animation. The anime runs as long as a typical episode would.

The featured one-shot was originally included in Oda’s compilation ‘Wanted!’, a collection of Manga ONE-shots. Published by, Shueisha in Japan in 1998, the one-shot was initially published in 1994 in Weekly Shonen Jump. Among the characters is Ryuma, who is later seen in Eiichiro Oda’s ‘One Piece’ manga.
