Manga Productions, a company affiliated with the Mohammed bin Salman Foundation (Misk), unveiled the Arabic and Japanese posters for the second season of its Saudi hit anime series, "Future's Folktales 2," at the AnimeJapan 2024 event in Tokyo. The second season is set to take place in the industrial city of Neom, specifically in 'Oxagon', which is the largest floating industrial complex in the world. "Future's Folktales 2" is a collaboration between Manga Productions and the renowned Japanese animation studio Toei Animation, known for producing iconic series like One Piece and Dragon Ball.
The first season garnered over 100 million views globally, and the highly anticipated sequel is expected to be released later this year. The AnimeJapan 2024 event, held at the Tokyo Big Sight Exhibition Center from March 23 to 26, is a premier event for anime enthusiasts worldwide. This year marked the event’s first in-person iteration since the COVID-19 pandemic forced a four-year hiatus. Manga Productions participates for the full four days, showcasing its work to both the general public and industry professionals.
CEO of Manga Productions Dr. Issam Bukhari highlighted the positive reception from both Japanese and international audiences and companies. He emphasized the company's role in bridging the gap between Saudi Arabia's creative potential and the global entertainment market. This, coupled with the Kingdom's ongoing economic development, he said, presents exciting opportunities for collaboration between Saudi and international businesses in the content creation and gaming industries.
