Kodansha Comics Will Reprint Iwaaki's Parasyte Manga

posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

North American publisher Kodansha Comics confirmed via Tumblr that it will reprint Hitoshi Iwaaki's Parasyte (Kiseijū) manga series.

Iwaaki serialized the manga in Kodansha's Afternoon magazine from 1990-1995. The 10-volume series (later reprinted in an eight-volume version) has more than 11 million copies in print. Mixxine, the company that eventually became Tokyopop, published Parasyte in its Mixxine magazine and later in compiled book volumes. Del Rey then republished the series from 2007-2009, and Kodansha Comics republished the manga again from 2011-2012.

The manga is inspiring anime series and two live-action films. Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
