JAPANESE PUBLISHER OF ENGLISH EDITION MANGA BASED IN SINGAPORE
Our parent company, SHOGAKUKAN Inc. was first established on 8 August 1922, as a publishing house that specialised in educational magazines for elementary school children and teachers in Japan. Over the years, SHOGAKUKAN gradually expanded both its scale and its range of publications in order to cater to the various needs of its readers from different age-groups and demographics.
Today, SHOGAKUKAN is one of the leading publishers of manga and other publications in Japan, publishing more than 60 magazines, 8,000 books, 13,000 manga books, 800 magazine-books, and 4,000 DVDs each year (as of 2013).
With a strong foothold in the Japanese market, SHOGAKUKAN has been vigorously trying to expand its overseas businesses by establishing business bases in San Francisco, Paris, Shanghai, and Taiwan. With the significant growth and development of Asian countries in recent years, SHOGAKUKAN sees a huge potential in the Asian market and the need for a more aggressive Asian strategy.
SHOGAKUKAN ASIA is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SHOGAKUKAN INC. in Japan, which was first established on 8 August 1922 as a publishing house that specialises in educational magazines for elementary school children and teachers in Japan.
In other words, SA is a division of the original license holder, SHOGAKUKAN Inc.
Since the establishment in September 2013, SA has published over 130 manga titles and 20 children’s educational titles. The best-selling manga titles include Future Card Buddyfight, Beyblade Burst, Pokémon, Detective Conan, Doraemon, and The LKY Story.

At SA, we believe that our works (publications and edutainment) allow young readers to explore the joy of learning and reading, by providing fun but informative edutainment that is wholesome and intriguing to young minds. We also hope to promote growing interests and knowledge in arts and culture through our manga and other publications starting from existing Japanese publications.

THE SA TEAM
MINNA SAN, KONNICHIWA
Our journey began in 2013, and today we have grown into a small but passionate team.
Most of us are anime and manga fans ourselves.
The goal has always been to share our love for manga and Japanese arts & culture with book lovers and lifelong learners of all ages around the world, especially within Southeast Asia.
Manga is a book with art.
Graphic novels and manga allow everyone to enjoy a media that is both visually and intellectually appealing. They can help convey a message that isn’t weighed down with text, so anyone who might be reluctant to read can have a literary source that isn’t block text heavy but still promotes reading.
If you do not know what type of manga to try out or read next, we can help you find something in your interest. If you are already an avid reader please still talk to us about what you think will benefit our collection. We want our readers to have access to what interests them from our vast library of SHOGAKUKAN INC publications.
