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?
