Viz’s “Shonen Sunday” Manga Coming This Fall

“Shonen Sunday,” Japan’s 50-year-old manga mag and longtime “Shonen Magazine” rival is making its way to North America thanks to Viz Media.

The first title under the new imprint will be the supernatural “Rin-Ne” by artist Rumiko Takahashi, which the company has publicized as being the first-ever simultaneous North America/Japan manga release — outside of bilingual pirates with Photoshop skills, at least.

Though Japan’s “Shonen Sunday” has a Wednesday release schedule, the tagline on the imprint’s new website reads, “Manga starts on Sunday.” Since “Rin-Ne” has already been posting free chapters online since April, could this tagline have anything to do with more simultaneous international releases?

“Shonen Sunday” won’t hit stands until this fall, but Viz is expected to make more announcements regarding releases at the San Diego Comic-Con later this month, meaning even more for North American otaku to keep track of very soon.
