So I found out today that there is a FOURTY FIVE VOLUME SUPER MARIO MANGA called Super Mario-Kun!!!??? I’ve seen various pages of said manga before, but I always just thought it was from some old manga from years ago (which it is, but this manga is STILL going strong and has chapters based on Super Mario Galaxy and New Super Mario Bros).
And if you ask me the design of Mario in these comics is WAY better than the mascoty, character devoid, totally non-threatening (stagnant) Mario that you see in the modern Mario games.
And of course it’s never been officially translated into English…
