Shogakukan Asia Pte Ltd has announced last Wednesday (March 29) that Volume 1 of the highly-anticipated English-language release of Bushiroad Media’s “BanG Dream!” manga will be released on March 30 in Singapore.
After the launch in Singapore, the manga will also be making its way to bookstore in five other Southeast Asian countries: Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, Thailand and The Philippines. Shogakukan Asia is also exploring opportunities with overseas partners to the manga in other territories.
The BanG Dream! manga tells the story of 1st year high school student Kasumi Toyama, who is determined to start a band despite being an absolute beginner.
While the manga shares the same premise as the television anime series, the manga provides more comprehensive details to each character and features additional scenes not seen in the anime.
The first chapter of BanG Dream! Volume 1 is available online for preview now at http://shogakukan.asia/bang-dream-1
