Vote for the Kodansha Comics 10th Anniversary Mascot! (Created by the one-and-only Hiro Mashima!)

Gather round, Kodansha Comics fans! As you’ve heard, 2019 marks the 10th Anniversary of Kodansha Comics, and to celebrate, each month of 2019 we’ll be featuring a different series as we celebrate some of the classic and most iconic Kodansha Comics series with exclusive contents, special deals, sweepstakes, and more. (ICYMIwe’ve already spotlighted AKIRA and Battle Angel Alita!).

But special surprises and exclusive new content isn’t all we have in store—we’re also hiring an intern mascot, drawn by the one-and-only Hiro Mashima, creator of Fairy Tail, to help us celebrate and promote our 10th Anniversary all year long! We’ve narrowed our pool down to three candidates, and we want you, our fans, to help us decide the winning mascot.

Check out the three candidates below, and vote here for who you think we should choose as the winning mascot. The winner will be announced in the coming weeks, so stay tuned to and our Twitter @KodanshaUSA, Facebook @KodanshaComics or Instagram @kodansha_comics for more #KC10YRS news, announcements, and more!

The voting period starts on February 21 through March 11, 2019.
