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!

Announcing: May digital-first debuts!

We continue to launch at least one new “digital-first”manga series every week—and for May we kick off 5 new manga series in a diverse offering of different genres!

Our digital-first manga releases are part of an exciting new initiative begun last year to put a greater diversity of manga series into the market. Starting with Yuji Onda’s mean step-sibling drama Beware the Kamiki Brothers! on May 1, this month’s series debuts will be available at all of Kodansha Comics’s partner digital platforms:

Beware the Kamiki Brothers! (debuting May 1), Yuji Onda’s romantic-comedy manga about a high-school girl who finds herself living with some scary new stepbrothers (Japanese title: Kamiki kyoudai okotowari);

Heaven’s Design Team (debuting May 8), an imaginative new manga series about Heaven’s Animal Design Department, where designers create a variety of new animals while contending with the unreasonable requests of their client (Japanese title: Tenchi souzou design-bu) ;

The Wizard and His Fairy (debuting May 15), Chisato Nesumi’s pretty fantasy manga about an eccentric wizard and the beautiful and strong-willed fairy he takes in (Japanese title: Kirikagohime to mahoutsukai);

Can You Just Die, My Darling? (debuting May 22), the hit dark manga thriller of murder, love, and delusion by Majuro Kaname and Sousou Sakakibara (Japanese title: Konya wa tsuki ga kirei desuga, toriaezu shine) ;

A Kiss, For Real (debuting May 29),  Fumie Akuta’s sweet, but sadistic, high-school romance manga about a mask-wearing girl and a free-spirited boy (Japanese title: Sekirara ni Kiss) ;
