SDCC2019 Special! ComiXology Originals Sale featuring Initial D & MORE!

 

Initial D, BECK, MARS … Kodansha Comics and comiXology have been teaming up to bring back some long-out-of-print manga fan-favorites as comiXology Originals — exclusively available comiXology and Kindle. In some cases we’ve been completing those series that never concluded in their original runs—publishing the English-language versions of the final volumes for the very first time … so you can find out what the heck happened!

To showcase those series, this week we’re hosting  the comiXology Originals Sale with the following lineup of manga up to 50% off only on comiXology and Kindle! (Sale ends July 22.) 

Kodansha Comics x comiXology Originals Sale
(July 16-22) 

Click on links below for free Chapter 1 previews!

 

Initial D
By Shuichi Shigeno

At last, Shuichi Shigeno’s all-time manga about Japanese street racing that turned into a global phenomenon is back! Live the legend of how Tak Fujiwara went from tofu delivery boy to street-racing god. This edition marks the long-awaited publication of the complete series in English, including the final volumes never released in English before.

Tak Fujiwara spends a lot of time behind the wheel. His tofu delivery job sends him racing down the treacherous roads of Mount Akina, and without even realizing it, Tak has mastered racing techniques that take most drivers a lifetime to learn. Of course, none of his friends realize this. They’re all too busy watching the Akina Speed Stars, the local street racing team. When the legendary Red Suns show up to challenge the Speed Stars, it looks as if the Trueno Eight Six that has been seen racing through the mountain roads. The question remains … who’s the driver of this phantom car?

 

 

 

 

 

MARS
By Fuyumi Soryo

Are you ready for some … drama? The all-time, long out-of-print shojo manga classic is back! With even more twists and turns then you probably remember, Fyuyumi Soryo’s beautifully illustrated high-school psychodrama turned some young comics readers heads inside-out when it was first released, with hysterical plots revolving around the traumatic secret histories of its seemingly poised protagonists. Art class was never quite like this …

Superpopular motorcycle racer Rei and shy, neurotic art student Kira are worlds apart … until one fateful day brings them together. Rei stumbles upon Kira in the harassing hands of her sleazy art teacher and saves the quiet girl from his clutches. And when the resident school pretty boy plants a kiss on a statue of Mars in the studio, Kira finds herself drawn in and even summons up the nerve to ask him to model for her!

 

 

 

 

 

You’re My Pet
By Yayoi Ogawa

Far from your typical manga romance-a-thon, You’re My Pet (previously released under the titleTramps Like Us) features one of the more memorable protagonists in manga history, putting a sardonic X-Ray to life as a single woman in the big city, with suprising nuance and edgy, sophisticated humor. Fans of Akiko Higashimura’s Tokyo Tarareba Girls will want to check out one of its great predecessors, which seems to have hardly dated at all.

Life was good for Sumire Iwaya … until the day she discovers her boyfriend is cheating on her, she gets demoted at work, and her life spirals toward the dumps. Things take a turn for the better when she crosses paths with Momo, a handsome-but-homeless guy with a colorful past who puts a bounce in her step and a shake in her hips. It takes two to tango, but when Sumire’s first love reappears in her life, will this be the last waltz?

 

 

 

 

 

BECK
By Harold Sakuishi

BECK is back! Harold Sakuishi’s wildly addictive 34-volume rock ‘n’ roll epic that redefined for a generation what manga could be returns—at last complete in English.

Fourteen-year-old Yukio Tanaka is one heck of a boring guy. He has no hobbies, weak taste in music, and only a small vestige of a personality. His shy and somewhat neurotic personality makes him his own worst enemy. Little does he know that his life will be forever changed when he meets rocker Ryusuke Minami, an unpredictable sixteen-year-old with a cool dog named Beck. Ryusuke has just returned to Japan from America, and when he inspires Yukio to get into music, the two begin a journey through the world of rock ‘n’ roll dreams! Lace up your Docs and head to the mosh pit—Harold Sakuishi’s manga series that spawned the hit anime is back!

 

 

 

 

 

Seven Shakespeares
By Harold Sakuishi

Literary secrets come alive when Harold Sakuishi, creator of the all-time-classic rock ‘n’ roll manga BECK, tackles a different kind of legend: William Shakespeare.

He’s said to be the greatest playwright and poet in history, the author of Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet, and Macbeth, but just who was William Shakespeare? Harold Sakuishi unlocks the secrets behind the writer you only thought you knew! Volume 1 comes in a special, 520-page 2-in-1 edition.

 

 

 

 

 

comiXology Originals series are available exclusively on comiXology and Kindle! 

Time for manga drama! All of MARS and You’re My Pet now out on comiXology Originals

The return of two all-time romance manga classics!

Ready for some … drama? ComiXology Originals and Kodansha Comics today revive a pair of all-time fan favorites: Fuyumi Soryo’s high-school psychodrama MARS, featuring even more twists and turns then you probably remember, and Yayoi Ogawa’s You’re My Pet (first released as Tramps Like Us, but now back with its original title), fondly remembered for its sharp portrayal of one of the most remarkable female protagonists in manga history.

As part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive content, all 15 volumes of MARS and all 14 volumes of You’re My Pet feature new covers and are now available to read digitally at no additional cost for Amazon Prime, Kindle Unlimited, and comiXology Unlimited members. They’re also available for download purchase on Kindle and comiXology. Today’s double debut builds on the success that comiXology Originals and Kodansha Comics have had with bringing back and completing formerly out-of-print manga classics like Harold Sakuishi’s BECK and Shuichi’s Shigeno’s Initial D.

MARS by Fuyumi Soryo (15 volumes)
Back in the day Fuyumi Soryo’s beautifully illustrated shojo manga turned some young comics readers heads inside-out with hysterical plots revolving around the traumatic secret histories of its seemingly poised protagonists. Art class was never quite like this …

Superpopular motorcycle racer Rei and shy, neurotic art student Kira are worlds apart … until one fateful day brings them together. Rei stumbles upon Kira in the harassing hands of her sleazy art teacher and saves the quiet girl from his clutches. And when the resident school pretty boy plants a kiss on a statue of Mars in the studio, Kira finds herself drawn in and even summons up the nerve to ask him to model for her! MARS was adapted in 2016 into a popular live-action TV series (and then into a film) in Japan.

About Fuyumi Soryo
After debuting as a manga artist in 1982, Fuyumi Soryo serialized her first series Onajigurai Ai (Same Amount of Love) in Bessatsu Shojo Comics (Shogakukan) in 1985. Her most renowned work include MARS and Boyfriend, which won the 33rd Annual Shogakukan Manga Award. In 2001, she serialized ES: Eternal Sabbath in Morning magazine (Kodansha.) Her current work, Cesare: The Creator of Destruction, is being serialized in Morning. To create a new interpretation of the Italian Renaissance hero Cesare Borgia, Soryo studied various historical records and artwork from the era and consulted with Italian Literature scholar Tomoaki Hara. The beautifully illustrated and historically accurate Italian cityscape of Cesare has been critically acclaimed by both historians and manga readers alike.

You’re My Pet by Yayoi Ogawa (14 volumes)
Far from a typical romance manga, You’re My Pet features one of the more memorable protagonists in manga history, putting an X-Ray to life as a single woman in the big city, with surprising nuance and edgy, sophisticated humor. Fans of Akiko Higashimura’s Tokyo Tarareba Girls will want to check out one of its great predecessors, which seems to have hardly dated at all.

It takes two to tango, but when Sumire’s first love reappears in her life, will this be the last waltz? You’re My Pet was adapted into a Japanese TV series in 2003 and then again in 2017.

About Yayoi Ogawa
Born December 1 in Kanagawa Prefecture, Yayoi Ogawa was nominated in 1994 for Kodansha’s mimi&Kiss Autumn Newcomer Manga Award. In December of the same year, she debuted as a manga artist with Sugao ni Kiss Shite (Kiss Me on My Bare Face) in Kodansha’s Kiss magazine. Her most renowned work is You’re My Pet, which sold 4 million copies in Japan and won the 27th Annual Kodansha Manga Award. It was also adapted into a live-action TV drama series in 2003 and again in 2017. Currently Ogawa is serializing two works simultaneously, Kiss & Never Cry in Kiss magazine and BAROQUE in Monthly Sirius magazine (both from Kodansha.)
