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?

And now, a deluge of new manga releases for the holidays. Let's take a look at what's new to both brick+mortar and digital bookshelves:

97816323611279781632362827

At last, Volume 17 of manga phenomenon, Attack on Titan by Hajime Isayama, is finally here. You can have it 2 (or 3) ways: in our regular print or digital editions—or also as the Attack on Titan 17 Special Edition, featuring an exclusive DVD containing an Attack on Titan anime episode never before released in the U.S.

The half-hour episode "Ilse’s Notebook" is the first time a side story from the manga has been animated. It's by the the same producers and voice actors as the hit anime series and was previously only available as part of a limited-edition manga package in Japan. The Attack on Titan 17 Special Edition is the only way this episode will be available in English.

97816323611419781632361240

Fantasy overload! It's Volume 51 from the long-running hit by Hiro Mashima, Fairy Tail. At the same time, we've got the long-awaited sequel to all-time bestseller Tsubasa by CLAMP, Tsubasa WoRLD CHRoNiCLE. Free Chapter 1 preview at the cover-image link.

We've been making waves in the world of digital comics as of late, rapidly expanding our selection through digital channels like comiXology and Kobo. This week on the digital front, new volumes from a pair of "dark" science-fiction thrillers: Parasyte by Hitoshi Iwaaki, the basis of the hit Adult Swim anime, and the post-apocalyptic-Tokyo-story COPPELION by Tomonori Inoue. 

KOAQQ[[9781682330661]]mywifeiswagatsumasanvolume8

Finally, we have new volumes in our accelerated weekly digital-only series: Space Brothers, My Wife Is Wagatsuma-san, As the Gods Will: The Second Series, and Fort of Apocalypse. (Look for Fuuka to come back into the rotation in February.) Along with COPPELION, these series are currently only available as Digital Editions—as part of our accelerated publishing program to offer a broader selection of our titles in English translation. It's been a great experiment, so far. And while there's no plans for print releases yet, you never know!
