1 World Manga

September 2005 - June 2007

 

The 1 World Manga series offers a premise where the hero must grapple with social problems of a global magnitude that are set in the real world. This joint World Bank/VIZ Media series targets youth readers with engaging stories that introduce the reader to important topics in development. Each volume focuses issues like poverty, HIV/AIDS, the environment, child soldiers, girls' education, and corruption. The series concerns the coming-of-age tale of an orphaned teenager, Rei, who dreams of becoming the greatest fighter in the world! Rei's trainer takes the form of various animals and, much to Rei's disappointment, strives to develop his student's mind, heart, and spirit more than his fighting technique. The stakes get higher when Rei meets a young woman fighting just to survive! Can Rei vanquish the specter of poverty?

 

Some issues are available in Chinese.
