Digital-first Manga Sale, Part 2: Saint Young Men + 50 series up to 50% off!

As mentioned last week, Kodansha Comics has published over 100 digital-first series and to help get you into those manga gems in our digital library, 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: BookWalkercomiXology, Google Play, Kindle, and nook. (Sale ends June 24.)

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 BECKInitial D, Rave MasterDragon Head, Peach Girl, MARS, and You’re My Pet—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 2: L-Z

For the second installment this week, we’re putting on sale all digital-first series with titles starting with the letters L-Z—which includes series like soon to be animated Magical Sempai, ’90s shojo megahit Peach Girl and its follow-up Peach Girl Next, and the most talked-about and highly anticipated comedy manga this decade, Saint Young Men!
