GEN MANGA  
ENGLISH|JAPANESE
Indie Manga from the Tokyo Underground

Direct
GEN stories are published no where else in the world. They come straight from the artists in Japan to you. We translate the stories and put them out as they are created.

Monthly
GEN is the return of the monthly magazine, the variety pack, or as it is known in Japan, the gekkan.

Seinen
Many manga readers will know the word shounen. GEN brings you the next step up, seinen. Seinen is for those who demand to see their lives reflected beyond the playgrounds of childhood. GEN is for a more mature audience.

Doujinshi
The word doujinshi is tied to the western idea of indie or underground. Artists that we publish have made work for the love of the medium and based on their own pure creativity. We bring you these stories first.

Community
Come and join our community and be a part of GEN Manga. We believe that readers want more than only safe mainstream titles. You can read something new here, let us know what you think, and we’ll keep it in mind as we continue to bring you new work.

原GEN (gěn) is prounouced with a hard G as in “get.” It comes from the Japanese kanji 原 which can be translated as “original,” as used in the word 原因 (genin) meaning “the origin.”
