Korean Manga “Tower of God” Receives TV Anime, Produced by Rialto Entertainment

Tower of God

2010 Korean manga Tower of God will be getting a tv anime adaption, produced by Rialto Entertainment.

Comic Natalie (via Anime News Network) reports that the Korean webtoon (digital manga, or manwha since it is a Korean manga) by Lee Jong-hui (a.k.a. SIU) will become a TV anime.

The plot (via Wikipedia) centers around “Twenty-Fifth Bam”, a boy who has spent his life living with his friend Rachel under the Tower. When Rachel manages to get inside, Bam pursues- and faces challenges on every floor as he tries to rescue her. The story was also the first set in the “Talse Uzer” series.

While the original webtoon launched in 2010, it did not head to Japan (via the LINE Manga app) until 2018. Since then, it has become available in 28 languages.

Rialto Entertainment (via Anime News Network) also reveals that they will be producing the show. Rialto Entertainment was set up as a subsidiary of Aniplex in 2018, to handle independent video production, and license management of video content.

The official website teases that the show will launch simultaneously in Japan, the United States, and South Korea. With Rialto Entertainment stating the show will premiere in Japan in Spring 2020, this date is likely to apply for the United States and South Korea as well.
