A New Year message from Mr Bunsho Kajiya


Singapore, Dec 31, 2018

Dear Partners, Readers and Fans

Thank you for a wonderful year of manga and comics in Southeast Asia. It has been an exciting 2018 for Shogakukan Asia as we embarked on many new projects and releases and we hoped that you have enjoyed them as much as we did. 

In 2019, we at Shogakukan Asia have big plans in store to bring you titles not only from Japan, but also from talented creators in Southeast Asia. From bestsellers like [Pokémon], [Detective Conan] and [Future Card Buddyfight] to regional classics such as Singapore’s [Mr Kiasu] and [Superich] as well as Indonesian breakthrough comic [Nusa V], our line-up promises to entertain readers of all ages around the world.

In addition, we have expanded our social media networks and channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so fans can now be informed better than ever about our new releases and events in 2019.

We would like to wish everyone continued success and good health for the year ahead, and that you have a safe and enjoyable holiday season. Onwards to 2019!
