Exciting news for manga enthusiasts! Kadokawa’s Harta manga magazine is all set to launch its first web manga magazine, Harta Alternative, in celebration of Harta’s 10th anniversary. The new web magazine aims to provide manga creators with another platform to share their passion for manga with readers from all around the world.
The launch of Harta Alternative is a significant milestone for Kadokawa, the Japanese entertainment company that revamped its Fellows! manga magazine to Harta in February 2013. Fellows! and Harta have been home to many popular manga series, such as Hinamatsuri, Delicious in Dungeon, and Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto. With Harta Alternative, Kadokawa seeks to create a new treasure trove of manga that will capture the hearts and minds of manga enthusiasts everywhere.
The new web magazine has already garnered considerable attention from manga creators and fans alike. Harta Alternative will feature a mix of one-shots and serialized works from popular authors, including Masao Ohtake, the creator of Hinamatsuri; Yumi Kurokawa, the author of Boku no Ribbon; and Oku, the author of SAMURA. Each author is a master of their craft, and readers can expect to be transported to new worlds filled with unforgettable characters and gripping storylines.
For those unfamiliar with one-shots, they are standalone stories that are typically shorter in length than serialized works. They allow manga creators to experiment with new ideas and characters, often leading to the creation of new serialized works. Serialized works, on the other hand, are stories that are told over multiple chapters, allowing for greater character development and more intricate plotlines.
In summary, the launch of Harta Alternative marks an exciting new chapter in the world of manga. With its impressive lineup of talented authors, readers can expect to be entertained and enthralled by the diverse range of stories that will be featured in the web magazine. Whether you’re a die-hard manga fan or just looking for a new form of entertainment, Harta Alternative promises to deliver the goods.
