Digital-first Manga Sale, Part 1: Ao-chan Can’t Study! + 50 series up to 50% off!

A few years ago when we started releasing digital-first manga series—with the aim of offering an even more diverse and robust library of manga officially in English than what’s available in print—we didn’t quite imagine it’d go so well … or that we’d be up to over 100 digital-first series by now! And while some digital-firsts have since gone on to become available in print, there’s still a ton of great reads in our lineup that are only available digitally.

To help get you into those series, for the next two weeks, we’re hosting our two-fisted Digital-first Manga Sale, where all volumes of selected series are up to 50% off at our digital retail partners: BookWalker, comiXology, Google Play, Kindle, and nook. (Sale ends June 17.)

What are “digital-firsts”?

• First are the true “digital-firsts”—the ones that come out first digitally, then become available in print as well. Tokyo Tarareba Girls, The Quintessential Quintuplets,  Grand Blue Dreaming, and Boarding School Juliet all started out this way—and we’ve got several more exciting announcements to come in the months ahead!

If it’s not in print yet, tell us what you like! You can fill out this form to give us your feedback. The road to getting a book licensed in print can be a long and winding one, and we can’t always reply to requests directly, but we are listening—and we really do love and appreciate your opinions, no matter how crazy! 

• Then, for those of you who gotta stay exactly up to date, there’s our simulpubs, which are chapters from selected series published the same day they come out in Japan: you can read simulpubs on Crunchyroll and comiXology.

• Finally, digital-firsts allows us to bring back some of our favorite out-of-print titles—like BECK, Initial D, Rave MasterDragon Head, and Peach Girl—that might not otherwise be available!

Questions?—check out our Digital-first manga page to see what’s in store!

Digital-first Manga Sale, Part 1: A-K
