Japanese artists Ryou Konno and Takahiro Matsu collaborated on writing a manga book about Dr.Jose Rizal. The online Japanese comics features the life, journey, struggles and heroism of our country’s national hero.
The manga book has an introduction that says:
“In the land now known as the Philippines, there was a time when colonial Spain ruled for more than 300 years. During a period when native Filipinos once called Indios were oppressed, exploited, and stripped of their human rights, Jose Rizal was born on the outskirts of Manila.”
“’What does it mean to be a Filipino? Is it possible to incite change through knowledge and not violence?’ He thought of those every day.”
It also describes Dr.Rizal as “a doctor, novelist, and a painter who can speak 15 languages, Jose Rizal is a legendary figure who brought about national revolution through one epic novel!”
Chapter 1 is already available online last June 19 at the Manga Club.
This is under the publication of ROLL and each subsequent chapters will be released every Tuesday.
