It’s on the occasion of the online event PAM – Pop Asian Matsuri – that the editor Kana took the opportunity to draw his ads. Here is the recap:
We start with the reissue of Naruto, which will benefit from a version Hokage, namely a more qualitative edition composed of color pages and bonuses. The first two volumes will be released on March 18. In the process, Kana evoked the coming of Masashi Kishimoto in France, without giving more details and subject to the health situation in France.
- A large format (140x213mm)
- Between 380 & 400 pages the tome
- Price: 15 euros per unit
- Color & bonus pages!
- 1 volume per month, papier munken
- Matt lamination & spotted varnish cover
Among the curiosities we note Adabana, talented mangaka NON (see his Twitter account). This thriller concluded in 3 volumes will be discovered in April 2022. It will be preceded by Niko Tama from Peko Watanabe (see his Twitter account). A story in 5 volumes which addresses the question of parentage.
Other announcement, The Elusive Samurai, sleeve of Yusei Matsui (Assassination Classroom). This title which takes place in a feudal Japan has 4 volumes since its launch this year at Shueisha. The title, which features an elusive runaway boy, is available on Manga +.
Patience, it will also take to get your hands on the prequel Shaman King Zero. The two volumes will be available to discover in November 2022.
On the other hand, it will be necessary to be much more patient to get your hands on the new series of Shôhei Manabe (Ushijima the usurer of the shadow), Kujô no Taizai. Indeed, the publication is scheduled for 2023! In any case, this is great news for this title unveiled in France via the magazine. ATOM, car Ushijima the usurer of the shadow is not really a title that sells well with us (and yet it is a remarkable title). 2023 will also be the release date of the new title of Taiyô Matsumoto, Tokyo Higoro ! A title in which we follow a now retired great manga editor. We can not wait to be there.
Finally, last announcement: l’application Mangas.io, a platform dedicated to digital versions of manga, will integrate several manga from the Kana catalog. Note also that French creations will be accessible free of charge: Sweet Konkrete (the best project in our eyes) very very strong Senchiro, Oneira (illustrated by Italian By Meo and written by the interesting CAB), Talento Seven from passes and Izu, and finally Vanupied from Maluko and Wave.
To conclude, the anime sector is talking about it with the announced release from the anime Slam Dunk and Blu ray. Good news, limited to 1000 copies, while waiting to see the next film which adapts Takehiko Inoue’s masterpiece. The sorite is scheduled for next fall.
Finally, we take the opportunity to congratulate and thank Kana for this beautiful first edition of the PAM ! The interviews and live drawing sessions with the Japanese artists were super interesting (check out whatAsano did in an hour!). It is a nice working basis for the editor (and ADN), even if we regret the few people present during these lives (we were about thirty on the sessions ofAsano or that of Jun Mayuzuki). However, we hope that future replays will benefit from better attendance.
