MediBang Publishes Rogue Samurai Manga Digitally in English
posted on by Karen Ressler
MediBang published an English edition of the first volume of Masakazu Suzuki's Rogue Samurai (Burazamurai) digitally on Amazon last month. The volume is available for US$4.99, or for free on Kindle Unlimited.
MediBang describes the story:
Suzumori Ganjuro is a swordless samurai wandering around with nowhere to go until he stumbles across a wanted poster in the woods. To his fortune (or ill-fate), he crosses paths with the very man that everyone wants to kill — the Sister Slayer.
The manga serialized in Kadokawa's Comic Beam magazine, and Kadokawa published the manga's three physical volumes from 2005 to 2006. Benjanet released three digital compiled volumes simultaneously in June 2014.
MediBang was founded in Tokyo in January 2015 with a focus on developing apps and software to allow artists to create and share digital comics. The company has partnered with manga publishers Shueisha and Kodansha to hold international manga creation contests.
