MANGA

Regular meetings with our creators, manuscript assessment, print preparation,
and proofreading is what comprises the core of our work.
We produce our manga by tirelessly working in unison with our creators to achieve a common goal.
It's a process that is undertaken solely for the sake of delivering the best in manga entertainment.

Launched in 2010, "Monthly Comic Zenon" has been entertaining the manga hungry public for 7 years. Where we stand out is our commitment to featuring the work of newcomers, manga creators we have trained and guided to ultimately debut in the pages of the magazine. Since its launch, the magazine has featured over 100 new creators and writers, many of whom have gone on to become professional manga creators. We aim to continue supporting the next generation of creators along their path to becoming fully fledged manga artists.

After the huge success of our free, parent-child magazine Polamel, we began work on serializing the immensely popular The Forest Warrior Bonolon under the tutelage of Manga Master Tetsuo Hara. Additionally, we are coordinating a series of reading events with the help of costumed characters from the beloved series to encourage fun infused education! And with an exciting collaboration with Zizoya Co., Ltd., education through Manga is set to revolutionize childhood development.

I have the immense honor of overseeing the serialization of "Bonolon the Forest Warrior" and all that it encompasses. First published in 2005, "Bonolon the Forest Warrior" is a much loved creation that has captured the hearts of its readers, many of whom have continued reading it into adulthood. As such, it’s a big responsibility to nurture its beloved characters without undermining a world that is cherished by so many.
As editors we work hand in hand with our creators and place great importance on individual opinon when producing new stories. I generally work from behind my desk but nothing pleases me more than seeing the smiles on children's faces at our events. Seeing our work touch the hearts of so many never fails to motivate us in crafting the next thrilling adventure.

"Wherever you are in the world, the challenges faced by newcomers to manga mirror those of our homegrown manga creators here in Japan” - this was the first lesson I learned from the SILENT MANGA AUDITION®.
With the aim of supporting our creators, to date we have invited 35 incredibly talented manga audition winners, from 20 countries to Japan to meet our established manga creators and immensely knowledgable editors to impart our advice and guidance in crafting the manga stars of tomorrow. Professional manga creators here in Japan have been nothing short of impressed at the level of international talent, barely containing their excitement for what the future holds.
By using our experience and knowledge in making manga, we will no doubt see the birth of new, exciting manga throughout the world...” - though this may seem a far off dream, I’m determined to use all my editorial experience, and devoted love of manga to make this dream come true. MANGA IS OUR LANGUAGE!!”

“The SILENT MANGA AUDITION® Award is Coamix's “window to the world”, and I am immensely proud to be playing a part in this pioneering competition. As a bilingual editor, I am not only able to utilize my English skills in fostering this immense talent, but it also allows me to successfully overcome the daily challenges the world’s biggest editorial department throw at me!
"Wishing You to Find the True Friends", featured in Monthly Comic Zenon was a shining beacon of hope for me and instrumental in my development, not only as an editor, but as a person setting out into the world. This is why I’m determined to pass on this sense of hope to the manga stars around the world. It is our duty here at the SILENT MANGA AUDITION® Award to help the world’s undiscovered manga creators, much like manga has helped me bloom into the fearless and dedicated editor I am today!”
