Want your news told manga style in English? Meet Manga no Shimbun photo

How'd you like to read all your news right to left, complete with talk bubbles and little sounds floating around the page? Perhaps now, you can. If you haven't already heard of Manga no Shimbun, it's a  new website that reports daily news in a manga format.

Anime News Network reports that Manga no Shimbun has announced plans to distribute the news in three new languages:  Korean, French and English. Two artists and a staff of 40-50 assistants draw each news piece, and editor Ryō Son says each news piece takes around six hours to complete. It might seem time consuming, but if the concept works, it seems to me to be worth the effort. I'm not sure exactly when we can expect to enjoy Manga no Shimbun in English, but they're saying their goal is to launch it in about half a year.
