Background of Comprehensive Business Alliance
The popularity of vertical reading full-color manga is increasing in Japan as well, against the backdrop of the global hit of a video work based on a Korean vertical reading full-color manga. Furthermore, the global vertical reading full-color manga market is expected to grow from approximately 504.6 billion yen in 2021 to approximately 3.6006 trillion yen in 2028. (*1)
So far, we have built a good relationship with Yuna by producing a vertical reading full-color manga “Real Marriage Survival”. This time, by forming a comprehensive business alliance, we will jointly plan and produce works as a stronger partner. We would like to create an environment where more challenging works can be created, and further boost the vertical reading full-color manga industry.
