AX2019 recap: all of our new licensing announcements and more!

 July 17 UPDATE: Atsushi Ohkubo Q&A at Anime Expo 2019 + autograph giveaway!

During Anime Expo 2019, Atsushi Ohkubo, creator of Fire Force, shared his thoughts behind the creation of the hit animated series! 

Q. First question I’d like to ask: is this your first time in the U.S.?

Atsushi Ohkubo (AO): Yes, it’s the first time for me to be in the U.S.

Q. What did you do during your break between Soul Eater and Fire Force?

AO: I was playing video games.

Q. What inspired Fire Force?

AO: Firefighters are the closest things to heroes in our real lives, but there aren’t that many fictional or fantasy works that touch on the subject of their work. So I got interested in making a manga about it. Ever since I was little, I always thought firefighters in uniforms were really cool, riding around fire engines with sirens blaring, heading off to put out fires. There are a few existing stories about firefighters in realistic settings, but nothing about firefighters in a fantasy world. So I wanted to give it a shot. I was also inspired by those firefighters who were working hard to save people’s lives during disasters like 911 in the U.S. and 311 in Japan. 

Q. Soul Eater and Fire Force both have supernatural overtones. What is it that you love about the supernatural genre?

AO: The biggest thing for me is I’m trying to bring out expressions unique to manga, that aren’t possible in any other medium. When I was working on Soul Eater, I was trying to bring out the best work possible at that time. If some of those attempts went well, I remembered them, so I could use them again in new work but in different ways. Those aspects might appear again in Fire Force, as similar motifs.

Q. Which character in Fire Force do you feel closest to?

AO: Haumea and Arther. Haumea is an evil character, and I could be evil. Arther is an idiot, and I could also be an idiot.

Q. For the fans here that want to become a manga artist, what advice would you like to give them?

AO: First, you should try to draw whatever you want. Then show your work—let’s say to ten people—to get some feedback. If ten out of ten people say, “I don’t understand what’s going on here,” then it’ll become very clear what you have to fix.

Q. Any message you’d like to give the fans?

AO: In Fire Force, Shinra and Company 8 are the main characters of the series, but many more unique and tricky firefighters are going to enter the story later on. I’ve worked very hard on this manga, and the animation staff has worked very hard on the anime. So I hope you’ll enjoy them!

Thank you!

July 17 UPDATE: Atsushi Ohkubo autograph giveaway!

For those of you wanted to meet Ohkubo-sensei, but weren’t at Anime Expo, here’s good news! Ohkubo-sensei created an autographed Fire Force shikishi for a lucky Kodansha Comics fan—and we’re giving it away as a part of #KC10YRS July Spotlight: Fire Force Survey Sweepstakes!

All you have to do is take this survey before July 31 to enter for a chance to win this special Fire Force shikishi autographed by Atsushi Ohkubo himself!

Our original July 6 recap:

‘Twas extra-hot at Anime Expo this year—well, not so much the actual temperature (it was sweltering last year), but with the brand-new anime Fire Force world premiere and our special Fire Force guests making Hollywood-style appearances at the show! Plus we had a ton of new manga and anime projects revealed for the first time! Here’s the action-packed rundown:

July 4 (Thursday) Fire Force creator Atsushi Ohkubo  made his first-ever appearance in the U.S. with his editor Megumu Tsuchiya at the Live Drawing Panel hosted by Funimation and Kodansha Comics. Both guests shared behind-the-scenes stories of making the hit manga series and turning it into the most anticipated anime of the season. When Ohkubo-sensei finished three amazing sketches, the entire crowd played rock-paper-scissors with him to determine who gets to take it home. Congratulations to the lucky winners!

Meanwhile, the legendary creator Katsuhiro Otomo of Akira fame emerged to reveal he is directing his third animated feature, Orbital Era. Akira itself is also getting a reboot with a new anime adaptation project underway. And finally—great news for true manga fans—Kodansha, Ltd. (our Japanese parent company) will be publishing a retrospective collection, Otomo: The Complete Works, in Japan. More details coming soon!


Hey! We’re also releasing a very limited quantity of our Akira 35th Anniversary Box Set, one last time, this summer.

July 5 (Friday)  Fans watched the amazingly animated and fully dubbed first episode of Fire Force anime at the exact same day as its debut in Japan. Not only that, fans got to enjoy it together with original creator Atsushi Ohkubo himself sitting in the audience! Ohkubo-sensei shared his excitement to share the special moment with the fans and what to look forward to in upcoming episodes. 

July 6 (Saturday) Kodansha Comics and Vertical made new licensing announcements for 2019 and 2020!

Coming (very) soon as digital-firsts!

Digital-first Manga Sale, Part 2: Saint Young Men + 50 series up to 50% off!

As mentioned last week, Kodansha Comics has published over 100 digital-first series and to help get you into those manga gems in our digital library, we’re hosting our two-fisted Digital-first Manga Sale, where all volumes of selected series are up to 50% off at our digital retail partners: BookWalkercomiXology, Google Play, Kindle, and nook. (Sale ends June 24.)

What are “digital-firsts”?

• First are the true “digital-firsts”—the ones that come out first digitally, then become available in print as well. Tokyo Tarareba Girls,The Quintessential Quintuplets,  Grand Blue Dreaming, and Boarding School Juliet all started out this way—and we’ve got several more exciting announcements to come in the months ahead!

If it’s not in print yet, tell us what you like! You can fill out this form to give us your feedback. The road to getting a book licensed in print can be a long and winding one, and we can’t always reply to requests directly, but we are listening—and we really do love and appreciate your opinions, no matter how crazy! 

• Then, for those of you who gotta stay exactly up to date, there’s our simulpubs, which are chapters from selected series published the same day they come out in Japan: you can read simulpubs on Crunchyroll and comiXology.

• Finally, digital-firsts allows us to bring back some of our favorite out-of-print titles—like BECKInitial D, Rave MasterDragon Head, Peach Girl, MARS, and You’re My Pet—that might not otherwise be available!

Questions?—check out our Digital-first manga page to see what’s in store!

Digital-first manga up to 50% off thru February 5

Welcome to our club!
Didja know Kodansha Comics has launched dozens of new digital-first manga series, offering an even more diverse and robust library of manga officially in English than what’s available in print? Over the past year or so we’ve been pushing them out at a pretty rapid clip, so our Digital-first Manga Sale this week—with 60+ series on sale up to 50% off— is your perfect chance to go digital and catch up on what’s going on! Questions?—check out our new Digital-first Manga page to see what’s in store!

Why “digital-first”?

• Because some of these series are now—or soon will be—available in print as well, such as Grand Blue Dreaming, To Your Eternity, and Toppu GP. If it’s not in print yet, tell us what you like!
• Because digital-first allows us to get some of these series to you faster, whether that’s to catch up to a recently animated series or as same-day-as-Japan simulpubs on Crunchyroll or comiXology.
• Because it allows us to bring back some of our favorite out-of-print titles, like Rave MasterSuzukaand Nodame Cantabile.
• And because it allows us to try something we might not otherwise! 

For this week only, all digital-first series are on sale up to 50% off on all our digital-platform partners: BookWalker, comiXology, Google Play, iBooks, Kindle, Kobo, and nook. Sale ends 2/5. It’s deep, deep library of more than 60 series, so check out the list below and why not try something new?
