GOURMET FANTASY UNFOLDS AT AN OTHERWORLDLY EATERY IN UDON ENTERTAINMENT’S NEWEST MANGA SERIES

A Japanese style pub called “Nobu” exists in a back alley of the fictional medieval European city of Eiteriach. When the citizens of this strange world sit down to enjoy some unfamiliar Japanese cuisine, their troubles simply melt away… With over 900,000 copies already in print in Japan, the OTHERWORLDLY IZAKAYA NOBU manga series hits North American shelves in September 2018 through UDON Entertainment.

The series is written by Natsuya Semikawa and illustrated by Virginia Nitouhei. Each volume of this delightful manga is packed with tidbits about both Japanese and German cuisine, for which publisher UDON Entertainment have included a hearty helping of footnotes for fervent foodies.

The manga arrives hot on the heels of the anime adaptation, Isekai Izakaya: Koto Aitheria no Izakaya Nobu, which will be simulcast worldwide via Bandai Channel, Amazon Video, and Hulu in April 2018. The anime series is produced by Sunrise, and directed by Katsumi Ono (Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, Symphogear G/GX/AXZ).

Sengoku Basara: Samurai Legends Vol. 1

During the Sengoku era of feudal Japan, mighty samurai armies battle all across the land of the rising sun. The sudden murder of the powerful lord Nobunaga has sparked a mad dash for power. Warlords from every kingdom have charged their soldiers into combat, each hoping to enact their own personal vision for the future of Japan. Sengoku Basara takes real Japanese historical events and figures, and makes them larger-than-life with dynamic character designs and all-out action. Samurai Legends serves as a prequel to the action-packed Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii game Sengoku Basara: Samurai Heroes.
