In October Samurai Officially Becomes English

Manga Samurai Style CharacterThings are going great for all of the otaku who are not able to read their favourite manga in Japanese and are relying on English translations. The official website for online manga distribution Manga Samurai Style, powered by Gakken publishing, is starting to release Japanese and English versions of four different series.

The four titles are as follows:

Guillotine Circus by Ochazukenori (The Horror Mansion a.k.a. Zangekikan – by Ochazuke Nori)

STRAY WOLVES by Masaki Hiiragi (illustration, created also the ones for Phantom ~Requiem for the Phantom~) and Elseware (story)

CANDY SAMURAI WARS! by Shinichi Hiromoto (Hells Angels)

and…

Nobunaga no Yabou ~Rin-ne~ by Youichirou Ono (Brave Story) and supervision by TECMO KOEI GAMES

As you can see, there are quite the titles and from the image we can easily make out a general idea of what each story will be about. All series that can be read on the site will be samurai-themed and will be released simultaneously in both languages. These are new series.
