Gakushu Manga: World History renews publication with new covers

Gakushu Manga World History

A 18-volume historical manga named Gakushu Manga: World History is being re-released by Shueisha this fall for the first time in decades.

The classic historical manga is being re-published by Shueisha for the first time since the early 2000s on October 4th in Japan (via Oricon News).

Eighteen manga artists, including Kingdom‘s Yashuhisa Hara, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure‘s Hirohiko Araki, and My Hero Academia‘s Kohei Horikoshi are employed to draw historical figures and their antics.

Gakushu Manga: World History, released in 2002, is a long-selling manga series that has been loved by many readers since its inception. The latest edition, which has just been renewed for the first time in 22 years, has changed specifications from the previous large hard cover to a compact soft cover that is easy to carry, and has been updated to add more historical events.

The content is a dramatic yet easy-to-understand historical manga about historical events, and the volume has been increased by 56 pages from the previous version.

With beautiful illustrations, charming characters, and an exciting story, you can read the book as if you were in that era. And being drawn the styles of JoJo and My Hero Academia, it is perhaps not surprising if the historical figures in the manga can be at home with the author’s respective manga series.

The latest high school history textbooks emphasize “world history”, which involves reading and understanding world history in a cross-sectional manner, and ‘inquiry,’ which involves thinking about questions on the reader’s own and searching for reasons and solutions.

In response to this, the creators also pay attention to the history of the West, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, and also cover movements that connect countries, such as people, goods, and culture. This series is the first world history manga to comply with the revised curriculum guidelines.

For example, the fifth volume has Joan of Arc tenth volume deals with Napoleon’s career and his wars. In addition, 10 of the 18 volumes contain modern history, which is frequently used in entrance exams. It also covers the latest world developments, such as Israeli-Arab conflict and the Russo-Ukrainian War.
