Sekai Project Cancels GATE Manga Release

North American visual novel publisher and localizer Sekai Project has announced that it is canceling its publication of Satoru Sao, Takumi Yanai, and Daisuke Izuka’s GATE (Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri) manga, following its delayed release of the manga’s second volume.

Sekai Project stated that nobody at the company imagined the ordeal of manga publication. The company apologized, saying that some factors were out if its control, but the company “dropped the ball” on the project. Sekai Project has offered to cooperate with any company that relicenses the manga.

GATE was Sekai Project’s first manga release in 2016 as part of its manga publishing initiative. The company began taking pre-orders for the manga’s first two volumes in January 2016, and it just recently shipped pre-orders for the second volume. Sekai Project explained in an update in 2018 that issues with print quality had been a cause for the second volume’s extended delays.
