It is in a press release published this Monday and addressed to its readers that the French publishing house Glénat announced a price increase for the year 2023over all of its manga catalog.
Indeed, after Panini or Pika Edition, it is the turn of Glénat manga, publisher of famous titles such as One Piece, Bleach or Tokyo Revengers, to suffer the consequences of the global shortage of raw materials.
Among the main causes cited to justify this increase: the lack of paperthe war in Ukraine, the difficulty of access to certain resources such as aluminium, the rise in the price of energy, transport and even printing.
The publisher, which nevertheless declares that it has done its best to postpone the price increase of its manga as much as possible, has therefore published a list of the new price codes which will come into effect from January 1, 2023 next.
In its message, Glénat nevertheless wants to be reassuring about this price increase. This will remain as low as possible: between 9 and 35 euro cents extra depending on the collection.
A few details should be noted:
- The price increase will only concern new titles from the first quarter of 2023. All titles to be released by the end of 2022 will remain at current prices.
- The empty One Piece boxes remain at 6.90 € including tax.
- One Piece Boxes released before January 1, 2023 will not change prices, for the following, the new price will apply.
