Tokyopop coming back isn’t the only bit of great news we can look forward to, we can also look forward to a possible collaboration with Disney coming up. During San Diego Comic Con, the panelist shared images of Star Wars, and Frozen. Although it’s not official, Stu Levy said that the works would be original, and feature Japanese artists. Tokyo Pop previously published original World Manga, which featured a series based on Star Trek before the company shut down its publishing company in 2011. The company announced that it will begin publishing Manga again in 2016, and that it is working on several other projects including a comics app a video production as well.

Tokyopop was founded back in 2003, but the company went through an incarnation in 2011 (October).

This is great news for Manga fans, if you’ll remember one of the most prominent series that Tokyopop endorsed was Rave Master—and under the same artist Hiro Mashima–Fairytale, and Monster soul. For those not aware American Manga companies have been in decline in the last decade. It’s been largely due to the fact that a lot of consumers are electing to read manga online, and download it, over purchasing it. Companies such as Tokyopop and even Shonen Jump have gone digital to keep up with the demand for readily available manga and comics. If Tokyo Pop can return and deliver the same unique views and series that it did 10 years ago, Tokyopop could rise as king once more. We’ll look forward to 2016 to learn more about this development.
