Lines referencing “paranoid episode”, plagiarism were changed to reader feedback
The official Twitter account of Shueisha‘s Shonen Jump+ online service announced on Monday that the Look Back one-shot manga by Chainsaw Man author Tatsuki Fujimoto has been altered post-publication due to reader feedback regarding “inappropriate expressions.” The changes were made “out of a desire to avoid depicting something that could be linked to promoting bias or discrimination.”
Note: Story details regarding the manga are below:
In the one-shot, a man claiming to be hearing voices and having a “paranoid episode” goes into an art school with an axe, claiming that a student plagiarized his art. Although the event still occurs in the altered version, both the references to the “paranoid episode” and to the motivation of plagiarism have been replaced with different text.
