Manga Arabia Gets Translated Japanese Comic Books to SIBF 2022

At the 41st edition of the Sharjah International Book Fair organised by the Sharjah Book Authority (SBA), anime enthusiasts had the opportunity to pick up free copies of Manga-illustrated novels at the Manga Arabia stand.

Manga Arabia, an initiative by Saudi Research & Media Group (SRMG), is the first company to formally translate popular releases into Arabic and provide enthusiasts from the region with a version they can read in their own language.

Manga is a Japanese style of illustration that has become popular all over the world.

Visitors to the stand were also able to have their names translated and written in Japanese on the backs of illustrated postcards. Abdul Malik Alaskar, a professional linguist and translator, greeted visiting enthusiasts and explained the vision of the company and initiative, showing a selection of free Manga comics in Arabic and translating people’s names on demand.

Joumana Rashed Al-Rashed, CEO of SRMG, “The launch of Manga Arabia constitutes a new dimension for Arabic content that has the ability to provide intellectual, cultural, and creative inspiration for the Arab world.”
