You can now pre-order Kirby Manga Mania, Vol. 1 on Amazon.

Grab a small slice of strawberry cake because it is time for a quick tale. Well over a decade ago, manga book publisher Viz Media had announced plans to localize Kirby of the Stars: The Story of Dedede Who Lives. This particular Kirby manga is the first chapter in a 25 volume run that had been previously produced by CoroCoro Magazine’s comic department between 1995 to 2006 to coincide with the releases of several Kirby titles along with the anime. Plans for the localization mysteriously vanished and presumably fell through shortly after their localization announcement. However, the company is set to return to Planet Popstar this coming summer with Kirby Manga Mania.



Viz Media officially announced yesterday across their social media platforms that the Kirby manga’s first entry will be making its way to the west. While the complete details about the first volume have yet to be released, we will be sure to let you all know when they are available. Until then, Kirby fans will just have to sit back, play some Kirby Fighters 2, and wait for their warp star.
