Production, Sales and Management of Illustrated Books

One of our dreams is to bridge the gap between parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren and, with this in mind, North Stars Pictures is also entering the illustrated-book business. Aiming to re-vitalize communication between generations, we are adapting original works by famous comic-book artists into illustrated books that can be read aloud to children. The first work in the series will be "Bonoron, The Warrior of the Forest," by Tetsuo Hara. We are launching the characters in an illustrated book and also on the Internet. we are now preparing the launch of the second part of the series, an illustrated book produced by publishing of illustrated books and own and manage the copyright of the material. We plan to expand this business, first within Japan and then on an international level.
