Kodansha Comics has launched a Madefire-powered Attack on Titan app to the iOS App Store, which features not only the complete catalog of the popular manga, but all spinoff series, free Motion Books exclusive to the app, breaking news, interviews, and the latest chapters as they are released in Japan.
As Attack on Titan currently runs over 85 chapters collected in 20 volumes, there is plenty of content here to satisfy manga fans and other readers of all stripes, so this is a bold move not only to satisfy the already monstrous fanbase of Attack on Titan, but also to introduce the popular manga to new audiences. Additionally, new readers will find bundle packs by which they can get up to speed with the epic manga, and, until December 20th, users who sign up for a free account will receive the following digital manga for free: Attack on Titan Volume 1, Attack on Titan: Before the Fall Volume 1, and Attack on Titan: Junior High Volume 1.
“This app celebrates Attack on Titan as a global phenomenon,” said Alvin Lu, General Manager of Kodansha Advanced Media. “Hajime Isayama’s original vision is now a world unto itself, and the Attack on Titan manga app takes you right into the heart of it—you get caught up with the latest developments at once. And the news and feature feeds provide behind-the-scenes access to the creation of the manga and anime like no place else.”
“As Attack on Titan makes its long awaited comeback in 2017,” said Ben Wolstenholme, CEO and Co-Founder of Madefire, “we’re extremely proud to partner with Kodansha Comics—one of the top manga publishers in the world—and bring their hit franchise to the Motion Book Publisher platform. It’s exciting to be a part of their digital-first strategy with the multimedia iOS app and cutting edge Motion Books, and bring this seminal work to a new generation.”
