The Mandalorian Undoubtedly, it has been one of the most important television phenomena of recent years, although it helps to be under the umbrella of Star Wars content. The franchise in question is still a science fiction beast, and today has shown that it can diversify its content and expand its knowledge in different ways, with great success. It is now The Mandalorian turn to have its adaptation in the concept manga.
After the success of Star Wars: Visions, Star Wars and anime were a perfect combination. Now we know The Mandalorian the series will fit into a manga, and there can be no more exciting news. This adaptation will debut at the end of next month, in May, and will feature a manga writer who has worked at Marvel, specifically Spider-Man.

There are many parallels between the Star Wars universe and certain manga stories. Seeing Din Djarin wearing and protecting Grogu reminded many fans of stories like those of The lone wolf and his puppymanga by Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima.

Oosawa Yusuke will be in charge of the adaptation The Mandalorian al manga. Some fans know the artist by works such as Spider-Man: Itsuwari no Aka. That means you’ve worked with Marvel before. We will learn more about this adaptation on May 25 through Big Gangan magazine, the publishing label owned by Square Enix.
The extent of the story that unites Star Wars and the manga into one is still unknown. We know this will not be the only story they will adapt. Sources also confirm that the story of Woolwhich we saw in Star Wars: Vision, will have its manga. Kamone Shinarama, the author of Witch Hat Workshop, will develop this manga.

It seems that the two genres go very well together, and we will see such collaborations for a long time. Definitely something you should celebrate if you are a fan of these genres. We remind you that a second season of the anime Star Wars Visions is being developed.
The samurai style in the Lucasfilm universe
Many people miss these “crossovers”, but the truth is that each genre is inspired by the others and then creates its own formula. In The Mandalorianwe could see from the hand of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni how well the “samurai” style looks in the Star Wars universe.

The Mandalorian it was a global phenomenon for many reasons. However, one of them was because it successfully reminded us of samurai movies. Ever since George Lucas was inspired by samurai movies, which inspired cowboy movies, and looking sideways Dunescreated Star Wars.

In fact, in several chapters, we were able to see tributes to Akira Kurosawa’s films. I like The Seven Samurai or Yojimbo. Now that the third season of the series is the story of the Darksaber, owned by Tarre Vizsla, the first Mandalorian Jedi, we are sure to see more winks in this genre.
It’s always good news to have new Star Wars content. And where is the other big news? The author of Witch hats workshop will also adapt the story of Woolwhich was included as a short film in Star Wars: Visions.
