These are bold words, and they are what guide us every day at Kodansha.
We believe stories can change people’s lives. In fact, every time we discover a new author, publish a new magazine, license a product, or deliver children’s books to those in need, we believe that we open doors to new worlds.
Our work reimagines possibility. Our dedication to engaging readers and viewers through new narratives has remained unchanged since our founding in 1909, and over the past 110 years, we at Kodansha have sought out only the most thought-provoking stories to tell. Everything we share is meant to inspire and ignite ideas --- to help us all imagine what’s never before been possible.
We will continue crafting new stories that excite us at Kodansha, and aspire to inspire impossible stories in those around us.
