G-Shock GA-2100MNG is a Japanese manga-inspired watch series with an illustrated hand-drawn style

G-Shock GA-2100MNG Manga Series: GA-2100MNG-2AJR and GA-2100MNG-7AJR

The G-Shock GA-2100MNG series is inspired by the art of Japanese manga and features an illustrated comic book style. The printed black lines outlining sections of the bezel, band, and dial have a hand-drawn look, and parts of the bezel and band also have dotted screentone patterns that give the impression of a printed comic. This is a new and striking style for an official GA-2100 release, but similar styles have been seen before on a modded G-Shock GA-2100 from Shaka Builds in 2022 and with another brand on the D1 Milano Polycarbon Sketch from 2023. (The Yu Nagaba and Beams DW-5600 collaboration from 2018 also had a similar aesthetic.) The subdial indicator is made in the shape of a speech balloon, and the stainless steel case back is engraved with the sound effect character for “boom!” The series includes the blue GA-2100MNG-2A and the white GA-2100MNG-7A, which come with exclusive manga-themed cardboard packaging.

According to the image of the case back of the GA-2100MNG-7A, these models are made in Japan and are presumed to be limited editions. The watches continue the annual tradition of G-Shock series based on Japanese culture that started in 2018.

The GA-2100MNG-2AJR and GA-2100MNG-7AJR will be released in May 2024 in Japan with a tax-included price of 25,300 yen each. The release status for other countries has not been confirmed, but product listings for the GA-2100MNG-2AER and GA-2100MNG-7AER were found on the website of an official European distributor. (Update: G-Shock announced both models for an international release in Asia, where they are expected to be released in June. G-Shock U.K. also has both models listed as coming soon. A U.S. release has not been confirmed yet.)

The GA-2100MNG watches measure 48.5 x 45.4 x 11.8 millimeters and weigh 51 grams each. View GA-2100 specifications in our Specs Catalog.
