Fans of Chainsaw Man creator Tatsuki Fujimoto have been buzzing with excitement following the recent discovery of a new web domain, “Eri-Movie.com”.

Many believe this could be an early hint at an upcoming anime adaptation of Fujimoto’s acclaimed one-shot manga, Goodbye, Eri.

While the domain’s name server details align with those typically used for official anime project announcements, it is to be noted that no official announcement has been made so far, and the potential movie remains speculative at this point.

However, the fact that MAPPA CEO Manabu had previously stated the studio’s intention to adapt all of Fujimoto’s works, coupled with Look Back getting a highly acclaimed anime film adaptation (by Studio Durian) has only strengthened the veracity of the speculated Goodbye, Eri anime adaption.

Goodbye, Eri is a Japanese one-shot web manga written and illustrated by Tatsuki Fujimoto. It was released on the Shonen Jump+ website in April 2022 and published in print in July 2022.

Viz Media and Manga Plus published the manga simultaneously with the Japanese release.

MAL describes the plot of the manga as:

Suffering from a terminal illness, Yuuta’s mother asks him to film her last moments, which he does. From her radiant smile when she is with her family to the times when sickness ravages her body in the hospital, he records hours upon hours of footage. After her passing, Yuuta compiles her life into a movie to screen at his school, deciding to add a bit of fantasy to the ending of his film, Dead Explosion Mother, with a literal explosion!

Following the backlash caused by his supposedly tone-deaf portrayal of his mother’s death, Yuuta trudges to the hospital roof to take his own life—but there, he meets a girl named Eri. Captivated by his film, Eri requests Yuuta to make a new one that will blow the previous out of the water and prove his critics wrong. The movie they set out to make will stand apart by blurring the line between fact and fiction. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Yuuta film if it didn’t have his personal flavor—just a dash of fantasy.
