The Attack on Titan Manga app, produced by Kodansha Comics’s digital-content arm Kodansha Advanced Media, in partnership with the innovative mobile-comics platform Madefire, using their Motion Book Publisher service, presents a new way to read the biggest manga hit of the decade:
“This app celebrates Attack on Titan as a global phenomenon,” said Alvin Lu, General Manager of Kodansha Advanced Media. “Hajime Isayama’s original vision is now a world unto itself, and the Attack on Titan manga app takes you right into the heart of it—you get caught up with the latest developments at once. And the news and feature feeds provide behind-the-scenes access to the creation of the manga and anime like no place else.”
“As Attack on Titan makes its long awaited comeback in 2017,” said Ben Wolstenholme, CEO and Co-Founder of Madefire, “we’re extremely proud to partner with Kodansha Comics—one of the top manga publishers in the world—and bring their hit franchise to the Motion Book Publisher platform. It’s exciting to be a part of their digital-first strategy with the multimedia iOS app and cutting edge Motion Books, and bring this seminal work to a new generation.”
The dark, apocalyptic story of Attack on Titan unexpectedly became the best-selling new manga to come out of Japan in a decade. Published by Kodansha in Japan beginning in 2009, the manga series has since grown into a global phenomenon, inspiring a wildly popular anime series, notorious live-action film, videogames, and other pop-culture forces.
The ongoing manga series currently runs over 85 chapters, collected in 20 volumes to date in English and authoritatively published by Kodansha Comics. The heavily anticipated Season 2 of the anime debuts in April 2017.
