If you want to start “Star Wars”, start here! The long-awaited Japanese translation of the NY Times best-selling young adult novel “High Republic” is now available from Gakken!
200 years back from the Skywalker saga! “Star Wars” for the new generation has started!
Gakken Co., Ltd. (Shinagawa, Tokyo/President: Toru Goromaru), a group company of Gakken Holdings Co., Ltd. (Shinagawa, Tokyo/President: Hiroaki Miyahara), has launched Star Wars High Republic: Into the Dark” will be released simultaneously on February 24, 2023.
“I’ve been interested in Star Wars for a long time, but I don’t know where to start.” After all, there are 9 main movies, 2 spin-offs, and many animations and dramas.
For such people, I would like to recommend the “Star Wars High Republic” series to be released by Gakken. This series is an omnibus series centered on publications depicting the period about 200 years before the series of “Star Wars” movies, and has been published in several novels (for adults, young adults, and juniors) and comics in the United States. It is a large ensemble drama developed in cross-media. Each work has a different main character, and it is a good structure to read from any title. Of course, Luke and Darth Vader, who are familiar with the movie, do not appear at all, and even those who have not seen the video work so far can fully enjoy it, and the old fans will be taken to the new Star Wars world.
