Kodansha Comics had a couple of announcements to make at this weekend's Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, Washington. First, after saying that there was uncertainty about whether they'd be continuing Vinland Saga without fan support, they are confirming plans to continue the acclaimed historical Viking manga. Then, they announced plans for an anniversary collection of the classic Akira.
It probably wasn't as big a troll-job as the time Makoto Yukimura's acclaimed vikings manga Vinland Saga teased fans with news that turned out to be a story teaser, but again, the latest hyped announcement has failed to produce the long-anticipated TV anime. Instead, a crossover with Ponkotsu Quest has been scheduled for an October 24th YouTube launch. More after the jump.
Last time the series pulled this, it turned out to be a story teaser, but again, fans are getting their hopes up for an anime adaptation of Makoto Yukimura's Vinland Saga manga. The new October issue of Afternoon, the home manga magazine of the historical fiction, is teasing a Vinland Saga announcement, scheduled for September 25th's November issue. More after the jump.
Last December, Kodansha Comics indicated that the North American release of Makoto Yukimura's historical fiction manga Vinland Saga was being suspended as of its fifth omnibus. However, now it seems that good news about the publisher's plans may be coming as soon as next weekend's Anime Boston convention. More after the jump.
If you're hoping for an anime adaptation of Makoto Yukimura's Vinland Saga manga, keep your fingers crossed because Afternoon is teasing a big, upcoming announcement. More after the jump.
With a release slated for October 2013, it's going to be a while before Kodansha publishes the English edition of Japan Media Arts award winning manga Vinland Saga, and to make that wait even more difficult, they've outlined some impressive plans for the historical action series. Get the details after the jump.
Kodansha USA announced at New York Comic Con that they'll be expanding their manga offerings with zombie rom-com Sankarea, Makoto Yukimura's (Planetes) Japan Media Arts Award winning viking historical fiction Vinland Saga, the manga adaptation of sci-fi light novel No. 6 and former Tokyopop series Tokyo Mew Mew a la Mode.
