Happy Friday everyone! We've got a bunch of news for you today, starting with the announcement of 3 new simulpub titles from Kodansha!

Ajin : Demi-Human, A Silent Voice - Koe no Katachi, and The Heroic Legend of Arslan will all be launch precisely at MIDNIGHT, March 15 Pacific Time, and will be available to All-Access and Manga members worldwide except for the following countries: Algeria, Lebanon, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Morocco, Switzerland, and Japan.


Ajin : Demi-Human by Gamon Sakurai

Seventeen years ago, an utterly immortal human was discovered on an African battlefield. Since then, more of these new and unknown life forms began to appear among mankind. These undying beings start to be known as "demi humans." One day, just before summer break, a Japanese boy leaving his high school is involved in a traffic accident that kills him on the spot. Then, he comes back to life. A huge bounty is placed on his capture. Now the boy's attempt to evade all of mankind begins.

We will be launching with Chapters 1 and 2, and then adding additional chapters as quickly as we can until we catch up to the current chapters, at which point we will begin simulpub. Don't forget to check out the print copies from our friends at Vertical, Inc. as well!

A Silent Voice - Koe no Katachi by Yoshitoki Oima

I wish we had never met. I wish we could meet once again.

A boy who can hear, Shoya Ishida, and a transfer student who can’t, Shoko Nishimiya. One fateful day, the two meet, and Shoya leads the class in bullying Shoko. But before long, the class shifts its target from Shoko to Shoya. Years later, Shoya feels strongly that he must see Shoko once again.

The author Yoshitoki Oima’s comment: “People living in isolation. I wrote this story out of a desire to write about people living distant, isolated lives. Nothing would make me happier than if you all read my story.”

We will be launch with the COMPLETE CATALOG, with simulpub starting on March 18, at 4pm Pacific Time.

The Heroic Legend of Arslan Yoshiki Tanaka, Hiromu Arakawa

Someday, a boy will become a man, then in time, the man will become a king. Who is the true hero?! An unprecedented story of the struggle to succeed the throne has begun. Hiromu Arakawa, the creator of “Fullmetal Alchemist” illustrates the great historical fantasy novel in a never before seen style!

We will be launching with the FULL CATALOG, with simulpub starting on April 8, at 4pm Pacific Time

And don't forget guys, we will have more chapters of the special Fairy Tail Matsuri shorts coming your way as well, so be sure to check those out as well!

Dang I'm getting very encouraged to upgrade to all-access very soon. Now, if you get either The Severing Crime Edge, Dream Eater Merry, Qualia the Purple (though your highest priorities seem to lie in ongoing manga) , Iris Zero, Orichalcum Reycal and the Jinki series by Tsunashima Shirou, or My Ordinary Life, I doubt the heavens won't sing! Awesome job guys! I really hope this manga feature becomes a huge sucess and can't wait to upgrade to support it soon!

oh my gosh!!

Koe no Kitachi!!!

CR you guys rock. I think simulpubs are the way of the future. Eliminating the costs of printing the physical copies allows more series to be translated, and allows the less popular and mainstream series a chance.

Ooh! Heroic Legend of Arslan! YAY! I remember watching the OVAs a LONG time ago, so I definitely have an interest in the manga version. Thanks, Crunchy! (I never thought I'd get so much use out of this All-Access Membership).
