Kodansha Comics Launches the Humble Manga Bundle: Fairy Tail, including 45 volumes of Hiro Mashima’s manga masterwork
Latest Humble Bundle offering presents a massive catalog of the epic-fantasy Fairy Tail universe—including spinoff series and never-before-translated works
San Francisco, Calif. (June 21, 2017)—Kodansha Comics presents the Humble Manga Bundle: Fairy Tail in partnership with Humble Bundle. The offering amounts to a whopping $630 worth of digital manga, including a massive chunk (45 volumes!) of Hiro Mashima’s epic-fantasy manga Fairy Tail. The actual cost of the bundle is based on Humble Bundle’s unique pay-what-you-want charitable model.
“With the end of this best-selling, long-running hit manga announced earlier this year, this bundle represents an amazing value and opportunity to get all caught up with the entire Fairy Tail universe in time for its conclusion later in 2017.” said Alvin Lu, General Manager of Kodansha Advanced Media.
The manga comes in multiple formats including CBZ, PDF, and ePub, so they can be read on computer, e-readers, iPads, cell phones, and a wide array of mobile devices. Bundle buyers choose where their money goes—between Kodansha Comics, two charities (the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the American Civil Liberties Union), and, if they like, a third charity of their choice via the PayPal Giving Fund. If they like what Humble Bundle does, they can leave a Humble Tip too.
This special bundle ends WEDNESDAY, July 5, 10:59 A.M. PACIFIC TIME.
