Kodansha Comics announces the “Humble Manga Bundle: Attack on Titan Universe”

Kodansha Comics announces the “Humble Manga Bundle: Attack on
Titan Universe”—including 44 volumes of the apocalyptic megahit plus
exclusive artbook—to go on sale January 17

Buyers of Humble Bundle’s latest pay what they want for first 22 volumes of 
Hajime Isayama’s masterwork, plus all volumes of Lost Girls, No Regrets,
Before the Fall, Junior High, and Spoof on Titan spinoff series!

San Francisco, Calif. (January 16, 2018)—Starting ... January 17, Kodansha Comics will be making available its most highly anticipated Humble Manga Bundle yet, the “Humble Manga Bundle: Attack on Titan Universe” in partnership with Humble Bundle.

The offering amounts to over $500 worth of digital manga, or 44 complete volumes of Hajime Isayama’s monster hit manga Attack on Titan. The actual cost of the bundle is based on Humble Bundle’s unique pay-what-you-want charitable model.

“The Attack on Titan Universe manga bundle takes the story well beyond the second season of the anime series that concluded last year and goes in-depth into all the side stories of the characters fans have come to love,” said Alvin Lu, General Manager of Kodansha Advanced Media. “With Season 3 of the anime coming later this year, I can’t think of a better way to get thoroughly immersed in all aspects of the universe Isayama-sensei has created.”

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—among Kodansha Comics, two charities, 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, January 31, 10:59 A.M. PACIFIC TIME.
