Manga on Screen: Wishlist Sale!

All month long we’ve been celebrating the amazing series that have made the jump from manga page to anime and even live-action TV & films. This week, we’ve asked the manga experts at Kodansha for their “staff picks” of series they’d love to see adapted for the screen, and are spotlighting these tremendous tales at a discount during the Manga on Screen: Wishlist digital manga sale!

Take up to 50% off what Kodansha staffers think are manga series primed for adaptations! Imagine a live-action drama of the cute yet poignant college rom-com, A Sign of Affection. Or even a beautifully rendered anime-adaptation of the dark sci-fi epic, APOSIMZ. We can totally see the kinds of hilarious & heartfelt episodes that would come from adapting an anime of the lycanthrope love story, That Wolf Boy is Mine. And we would DIE of excitement over a featured film of the fashion forward trans coming-of-age tale, Boys Run the Riot. Any of the series featured in this sale would make a thrilling, frightening, and excellent adaptation – but why not start with the manga at an affordable price.

Note to fans about this sale: None of the titles featured in this sale are currently planned for an anime or live-action adaptation this is only a sale celebrating series we “wish” would make the jump in the future!

Get vol. 1 for 99¢ and take up to 50% off subsequent volumes!

After recently featuring a number of sci-fi & fantasy titles primed to get people into manga, we’d be remiss to not celebrate Knights of Sidonia, one of Kodansha’s most action-packed sci-fi sagas from acclaimed manga creator Tsutomu Nihei. So be sure to check this series out as this month’s Throwback Thursday digital sale spotlight!

As part of the Throwback Thursday digital manga sale you can now get the first volume of sci-fi mecha adventure Knights of Sidonia, specially priced at 99¢, and also take up to 50% off select volumes after that! Sale starts now and ends Wednesday, April 6, 2022.

Learn about Knights of Sidonia: Outer space, the far future. A lone seed ship, the Sidonia, plies the void, ten centuries since the obliteration of the solar system. The massive, nearly indestructible, yet barely sentient alien life forms that destroyed humanity’s home world continue to pose an existential threat. Nagate Tanikaze has only known life in the vessel’s bowels deep below the sparkling strata where humans have achieved photosynthesis and new genders. Not long after he emerges from the Underground, however, the youth is bequeathed a treasured legacy by the spaceship’s coolheaded female captain.

Meticulously drawn, peppered with clipped humor, but also unusually attentive to plot and structure, Knights of Sidonia may be Tsutomu Nihei’s most accessible work to date even as it hits notes of tragic grandeur as a hopeless struggle for survival unfolds.
