Perhaps its only recently that you have heard of them online or you have been looking at the nearby Comics Connection or Popular comics section. I myself have only not too long ago heard of them. Shogakukan Asia is the subsidiary of Shogakukan inc which publishes titles like  Hayate the Combat Butler, 7 Seeds, Dengeki Daisy. Maybe you guys would know the name of Shogakukan’s child company, Shueisha, which publishes Shounen Jump.

What got me excited is that there seems to be a void in the translated manga scene after Chuang Yi left the Singapore publishing scene and pulled of publishing Pokemon Adventures which has been a favourite comic of mine since many years ago. Thank goodness Shogakukan Asia would be filling the gaps by picking back up the popular manga.

Shogakukan Asia also plans to explore the viability of publishing light novels, which given the popularity of light novel adapted titles these days, would be very exciting.

Below are a couple more titles that they have released so far.

Well, we wish Shogakukan Asia their very best in providing better access to content especially with the growing and highly popular light novels segment. You guys can take a look at their titles at Kinokuniya or your local Popular stores for some of their titles. At STGCC they will also be releasing their new title ‘Be The Best! Pokemon B+W’ at their booth@D2 so check them out!
