VIZ Manga Digital Schedule Synchronizes Day-And-Date With Print
VIZ Media continues to refine its VIZ Manga digital platform with a newly announced general release schedule that will synchronize future manga titles to coincide with the domestic debut of their print counterparts, closing the gap between print and digital manga formats. Beginning yesterday, all VIZ Manga releases will debut on Tuesdays. In addition, digital volumes of current releases will debut on the same day as its print debut. This will also include future VIZ Media titles available from the NOOK Store™ for the Barnes & Noble NOOK Color and NOOK Tablet.
The VIZ Manga App is available for free through the iTunes Store and the Google Play Store, and all manga volumes are generally available for purchase and download in the U.S. and Canada within the application for about $4.99. More than 80 series and 700 volumes are currently available for download.
VIZ Media’s digital manga platform allows for universal access for fans to read manga from their Apple iPad®, iPhone®, iPod® touch, and Android-enabled smartphones, as well as VIZManga.com for desktop/laptop computers. With one account, registered users are able to view their purchases across even more devices than ever.
