UK based brand mayamada have released their delicious new manga book after a successful Kickstarter campaign, and just in time for Christmas.
Samurai Chef is an original manga comic created by mayamada. It’s the first complete book from their cast of anthropomorphic characters and tells the story of a cooking show where contestants’ dishes are judged by the Samurai Chef, with his samurai sword!
It all begins as a simple cooking competition, but becomes something else entirely when dishes are transformed into food monsters turning the judging process into a real battle.
The team at mayamada completed a successful Kickstarter campaign on October 27th, reaching 329% of their funding goal and becoming a Kickstarter staff pick in the process.
They have since wrapped up production of the complete edition of Samurai Chef which includes volume 1 and the new volume 2 in a single manga book.
It all adds up to 144 pages of actioncomedy goodness, printed on 120GSM paper with a 300GSM gloss laminated cover and perfect bound spine.
Samurai Chef has already been featured in a number of magazine and website including Geek Syndicate, Bleeding Cool and twice in NEO Magazine, the UK’s biggest anime and manga publication.
The book is available right now at the mayamada.com and Orbital Comics in central London, with more retail locations coming over the next few months. Expos goers also got a first look at the book for the first time at Hyper Japan Christmas in November.
So don’t wait to dive into the world of mayamada and this actioncomedy epic. Samurai Chef is a great buy for anyone looking for original comics, and the perfect stocking filler for the comic fan close to you this Christmas. ~Aisha Anime~
