The Fable manga is being released by Kodansha USA Publishing in English, and it’s portrayed as following:

“When you’re the infamous “genius killer” hitman The Fable, many things come easy. Being a normal person, however, isn’t one of them. In fact, being told that he can’t kill anyone for a while may just be the hardest job he’s ever taken…”

Katsuhisa Minami is the author and illustrator of the manga series The Fable in Japan. From November 2014 to November 2019, it ran as a serial in Kodansha’s seinen manga magazine Weekly Young Magazine. The chapters were collected into 22 tankōbon volumes. The Fable: The Second Contact, a follow-up series, appeared in Weekly Young Magazine from July 2021 to July 2023.

June 2019 saw the Japanese premiere of the live-action film adaption, and June 2021 saw the debut of the sequel. April 2024 will see the debut of Tezuka Productions’ adaptation of an anime television series.

As of October 2022, the manga series had sold over 20 million copies, making it one of the best-selling titles. The Fable was the 2017 General category winner of the 41st Kodansha Manga Award.
