Indie Manga from the Tokyo Underground released simultaneously in North America and Japan, GEN, continues to stir the industry with new release of free back issues. GEN will now make all digital back issues free! GEN 4, released August 2011, will also mark the free release of GEN 2.
GEN 4 will introduce two exciting new stories. Souls, by Arisa Karino, will enter a newchapter: Sold out of the back door of an otherwise straight bordello to clientele with a taste for young boys, Wanu is the brothel boy of the famed Kamiki whorehouse. The Japanese aristocrats and samurai who frequent this brothel must be discrete and the despicable owner is much obliged to keep things that way. Meanwhile, Wanu's soul is trapped in a vessel on loan to the homo-erotic fantasies of important men.
Sorako, by Takayuki Fujimura, will also be introduced in GEN 4: Sorako lives an ordinary life. And this is an ordinary story. She has friends and family, loves her dog, thinks about life, and occasionally looks for work (kinda). These are the adventures into a typical girl's life.
In GEN 4 the serialization of KAMEN continues, where readers finally witness the mysterious masked man's powers unfold. The plot and characters continue to develop in the retro boxing drama of Wolf and the teens and aliens of VS Aliens continue to keep readers guessing as the story nears it's conclusion.
GEN stories are published nowhere else in the world. These stories are created by the elusive doujin creators in Tokyo's secret underground circles, otherwise known in the west as independent creators and hard core fans.
Presenting new indie manga circles from Japan, GEN, a monthly publication, will be released in the US and Japan simultaneously. Digital format and print editions for GEN are available now. Based in New York, GEN Manga Entertainment endeavors to publish new and unseen graphic work from Japan, being in the unique position to bring readers work first, more original and untamed manga will be sure to come!
