We plan, produce, publish, and sell books and calendars.
In the area of books, we have been translating and editing foreign comics since 1994 under the name ShoPro Books.
The main focus is on American comics such as Marvel and DC. These have been made into Hollywood movies such as Batman, Spider-Man and The Avengers, and have created a large number of fans all over the world.
In January 2021, we signed an exclusive agreement with Marvel Comics to publish all Japanese translations of Marvel's American comic books.
In addition, we have started distribution of new and already published e-books of Marvel Comics.
We also sell general books in a wide variety of genres, such as the Nazotoki self-study children’s books, self-development books, non-fiction books by high-profile figures in the media, and collections of works by popular illustrators.
In the area of calendars, we plan, produce, and sell a variety of calendars, including wall-hanging, daily, and desktop calendars featuring popular characters such as Doraemon, Pokémon, and Detective Conan.
