Hey,

So Free Comic Book Day is where participating comics shops and comic makers give out special copies of comics for free. Is there an equivalent for manga?

Also, does your local comic retailer sell manga?

Closest I'll see to Free Manga Day is Manga Monday at Barnes & Noble which has 4 random manga volumes on sale for the day.

Sometimes manga is included in the free comic book day, but I can never find it.

Viz and Kodansha both had free manga out for free comic book day, from what I saw online at least.

When I went to my local comic shop they had almost no manga, but my local B&N has 9 shelves of manga, compared to 3 shelves of comics, last time I went.

My local Comic Book Store sells volumes of the more popular manga but it's not too big on it, luckily I read a lot of western comics so I don't mind myself missing it too much, especially with my reading of Crunchyroll's manga.

On the last free comic book day, they gave out the first volume of Attack on Titan. Maybe next year they'll put more manga for free.

My local bookstore (Chat Noir) sells manga but they don't have free manga day. But they always have a discount sale during Summer fest which is always at the end of June every year. And you can choose your discounts from a jar that full of poker chips that have the discount written on them.
