Kaiten Books is a localization and publishing company driven to bring the best Japan has to offer to the English-speaking fans of the world, like us! Our name is based off the famous sushi-go-round restaurants in Japan (called “kaiten-zushi”) and our goal is to bring you as much variety in our releases as you would find on the menu in the finest Tokyo sushi bars.
We started our company as fans of manga. Now, we passionately work alongside the most premium talents in the localization industry to make sure each release is the highest quality it can be. There are plenty of updates throughout the release process to keep our readers up to date on their favorite series.
By the community and for the community, we do our best to establish a transparent relationship with fans and readers while also putting the ones who work hard to bring these titles over from Japan and localize them at the forefront. Releases may be intermittent and sparse, but all names that may have had a hand in the localization and publishing process are paid well, treated right, and given the recognition they deserve.
If you’re going to eat sushi, you want the best chef. If you’re going to read Japanese translations -- you want Kaiten Books. Our doors are always open for lovers of manga, so come on in and check out what's on the menu today!
