Viz Originals will be a new imprint that will publish original graphic novels by artists, with massive inspiration from manga and anime.

The new imprint will offer multi-volume releases, as well as single volume releases. The imprint expects to feature young manga artists producing original content as their primary brand, as well as adaptations of video games and novels in manga format. Viz Originals will aim to create a work environment where creativity for its young artists are encouraged—allowing them to spread their creative wings and be given the support they otherwise wouldn’t have in the industry. The works will be creator-owned, first and foremost.
We look forward to seeing what original graphic novels Viz Originals produce! 2020 can’t come fast enough!
The Halliwell Sisters are taking on more than television, they are now being woven into a whole new tale of magic and mystery. Charmed, the television show, focused on the sister trio as they battled supernatural forces and learned how to control their powers. However, it’s getting a whole new perspective in its new manga adaptation. The sisters must take on their biggest challenge yet: a young girl with untamed power is in need of help when her magic goes out of control and threatens everyone around her.

The Manga, Charmed: Magic School is being adapted into a manga. It will center on Delia, a young girl coming into her uncontrollable yet supernatural. Due to a magical incident, Phoebe, Piper and Paige seek her out in order to help her manage her abilities. However, her power is still a lot to handle and due to some magical mishaps, attracts the attention of supernatural forces. It’ll be up to the trio to help Delia wrangle in her powerful magic in order to defend herself and others around her. I’m a big fan of Charmed, I’m looking forward to the sisters taking on a master and apprentice and sisterly type role in Delia’s life. It’ll be interesting to see how they will help her shape her magic and choices.
