MAGIC 2022 postponed

We are already in November and you have not heard a lot from us lately. The reason why is simple: we were waiting for the pandemic crisis evolution.

As you know, MAGIC is, above all, a lot of Japanese prestigious guests and many cosplayers coming from many countries such as South America.

Unfortunately, it is now clear that the situation in these areas does not allow us, once again, to offer you the MAGIC that you all know. Therefore, we have no choice to postpone again in order to make you live an experience up to your expectations in 2023.

See you on February 25 and 26, 2023, for hopefully, an unforgettable MAGIC.

Get ready for an exceptional artists line-up in Monaco!

This year again, due to the sanitary situation, the jury, composed of Hiroyuki Nakano (editor-in-chief of Weekly Shônen Jump), Shuhei Hosono (editor-in-chief of Shônen Jump Plus), Hervé Trouillet (artistic director of Shibuya Productions) and Sahé Cibot (associate director of Shibuya International), decided between the 5 finalists based on video presentations.

We are proud to announce that the winners of the MAGIC International Manga Contest 2021 are Toan Tran (29 years old) and Samuel Van der Veen (22 years old), with their artwork Imago.

All our congratulations to this highly motivated duo!

We remind you that they win a one-month stay in Japan for one person, including several meetings with an editor (tantô) of Shônen Jump as well as meetings with various mangakas.

Imago will of course be published soon on Shônen Jump Plus!

The cherry on the cake: our partner XP-PEN offers them an Innovator 16 tablet!

While waiting for the publication, here is a short summary of this artwork:

The runner-up of our 2021 contest is Valerie Yugay (26 years old) with Watch out! Magicaä, which will also be published on Shônen Jump Plus in Japanese and in the original language! She will receive an Artist 12 Pro tablet from XP-PEN.

Here is a short summary of this artwork:

Somewhere far away, on the giant island in the endless ocean, lies Litany. There’s a lot of great stories about this ancient country at the foot of Mount Middlerock, full of magic and adventures. And there’s always place for another one…

What an honor for Shibuya Productions to celebrate the 8th anniversary of our event the Monaco Anime Game International Conferences (MAGIC) on February 25 and 26, 2023.

Who could have believed, that a Gala Dinner, which was initially organized to celebrate the creation of the company, was going to transform into an inevitable yearly pop culture event in the Principality of Monaco.

 Who would have thought that after only 4 years, MAGIC will be exported to Japan, in Kyoto, Japanese culture’s heart.
