Manga has become one of the best-selling book genres in the United States, and it has so much more room to grow. Over the past few years, manga sales have skyrocketed and overtaken all other graphic novel mediums such as comic books and beyond. Of course, many of his best series come from Saut shonen and Viz Media. And now it looks like these titles are about to shake things up for readers in the United States.
On Twitter, Viz Media got fans buzzing with a simple tweet. The company posted a message on its Saut shonen account that now promises a big announcement is on the way.

“Soon you will be able to show your Saut shonen love in a whole new way. Exciting announcement tomorrow,” Viz Media shared.
At this point, fans aren’t quite sure what to expect, but Saut shonen sweets are always welcome. So far, Viz Media has excelled with its magazine license, and the publisher has changed the game for readers with its online catalog. A few years ago, Viz Media began simultaneously releasing chapters in Shonen Jump when they went live in Japan. This gave same-day access to hit series like Tueur de démons: Kimetsu no Yaiba, One Piece, My Hero Academia, Jujutsu Kaisen, and more.
As the deal has grown, Viz Media has become the go-to for manga online, and this special teaser will only further that reputation. So if you’re on the edge of your seat, know that ComicBook.com will bring you all the latest information on this as it goes live.
