This 100-page, four-volume project about Rizal’s work during the period of Spanish colonization is a collaboration between award-winning manga artist Ryo Konno and writer Takahiro Matsui. The first volume was released on Rizal’s birthday, and a new chapter will be released every following Tuesday.

Fittingly, Rizal would have been able to enjoy his own manga in all three languages—the linguist was apparently a big fan of Japanese culture, and quickly mastered the language during his time there. In fact, a bronze bust in his likeness still resides in Hibiya Park, Tokyo, at the site of the former Tokyo Hotel where he stayed for several weeks.
