Samurai Ace manga magazine will be the new title by Kadokawa Shoten and will definitely be something for the historical and samurai fans around the world. June 30th will be a celebration day for the new mangazine with Baku Yumemakura and Yoshikazu Yasuhiko making special appearances in Nara prefecture. See below for the first titles that will be serialized in the magazine!
The magazine will definitely be occupying itself with historical manga including shoujo and seinen, as far as I am able to see. Also, seems like someone else has understood that we need more historical stories – Thank You , Kadokawa!
