Anime-Planet Launches Comics Vertical with Korean Creator

What You Need to Know:

  • Anime-Planet, a recommendation database and social network for fans of anime, manga, and East Asian culture, is breaking into the webcomics game with a premier exclusive title.
  • Beginning Monday, July 31 at 8 AM PST, fans will be able to read chapter one of the webcomic UNBOY by Narack (Sung Lim), an artist known for his video game-inspired comic creations.
  • Already, fans can watch their favorite anime from Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Viewster directly on the platform. Now, they will be able to do the same with manga, starting with UNBOY’s first chapter, and more titles planned for the future. Anime-Planet will release future chapters of UNBOY every two weeks.

In UNBOY, video games are real. Some time ago, a legendary gamer scattered numerous cards imbued with special gaming powers across the globe. Today, players compete with one another in no-holds-barred duels to collect them all. For whoever collects the entire deck will have their greatest wish granted. Chan, a good-natured 13 year-old boy, dreams of challenging the strongest gamers in the world. During a duel with Jin, a ruthless player with a dark past, a new challenger approaches. Now Chan and Jin must work together, or it's game over for both of them!
