Pretty sweet deal huh? But you gotta hurry, because the sale will end on July 30!

Where do I start?

A brand new josei manga debuts on digital today, called 
Is Kichijoji the Only Place to Live? by MAKIHIROCHI. It’s about two real estate agents, who are twins (also heavy metal fans), who put the “real” in the “real estate” game and school you about the under-the-radar neighborhoods in Tokyo. If you are looking for a good new read that takes place in Tokyo, THIS IS IT.  Is Kichijoji the Only Place to Live? volume 1 debuts at 50% off cover price at $5.99.

Digital-first manga up to 50% off thru February 5

Welcome to our club!
Didja know Kodansha Comics has launched dozens of new digital-first manga series, offering an even more diverse and robust library of manga officially in English than what’s available in print? Over the past year or so we’ve been pushing them out at a pretty rapid clip, so our Digital-first Manga Sale this week—with 60+ series on sale up to 50% off— is your perfect chance to go digital and catch up on what’s going on! Questions?—check out our new Digital-first Manga page to see what’s in store!

Why “digital-first”?

• Because some of these series are now—or soon will be—available in print as well, such as Grand Blue Dreaming, To Your Eternity, and Toppu GP. If it’s not in print yet, tell us what you like!
• Because digital-first allows us to get some of these series to you faster, whether that’s to catch up to a recently animated series or as same-day-as-Japan simulpubs on Crunchyroll or comiXology.
• Because it allows us to bring back some of our favorite out-of-print titles, like Rave MasterSuzukaand Nodame Cantabile.
• And because it allows us to try something we might not otherwise! 

For this week only, all digital-first series are on sale up to 50% off on all our digital-platform partners: BookWalker, comiXology, Google Play, iBooks, Kindle, Kobo, and nook. Sale ends 2/5. It’s deep, deep library of more than 60 series, so check out the list below and why not try something new?

They're back. Once upon a time, many legendary manga series in English went into limbo when their publishers ceased operations. Some of those—if they were published by Kodansha in Japan—continued to be released by yours truly, but several went out-of-print and/or were never completed.

Well, they're back now—in digital—and we're looking to finish them. Keep your eyes peeled for much more to come, but to kick off our Resurrection the first two volumes of each of these series go on sale today at all of our digital retail partners (comiXology, iBooks, Kindle, Kobo, and nook):

• alien-invasion thriller ALIVEperhaps now best known as the breakthrough work of Noragami: Stray God mangaka Adachitoka
• absolute shojo cult-fave Nodame Cantabile, by Tomoko Ninomiya, about the ongoing relationship between two very different classical musicians
• monster-killer-comedy-turned-late-night-anime-classic Princess Resurrectionby Yasunori Mitsunaga
• Jin Kobayashi's epic of high-school hijinx, School Rumble

On top of that, enjoy these two back-in-print classics from Tsutomu Nihei that we've also just recently added to our digital lineup:
