Azuki, a new digital manga service offering thousands of manga chapters soon after they hit stores in Japan, officially licensed and in high quality, has gone live. Azuki is available now on Web and iOS and offers content for both free and subscription users. Free users will be able to read select chapters with advertisements, while those who pay a monthly subscription fee of $4.99 can read Azuki’s expansive catalog with no ads. A 30-day free trial is available for all new Premium subscribers. The Android app will be available on the Google Play Store shortly.
Today, new subscribers can begin reading a wide selection of titles from Azuki’s publishing partners Kodansha USA and Kaiten Books. Azuki is available in English worldwide, excluding Japan, so fans everywhere can read manga in their web browser or on their mobile devices. Comment threads are available on each chapter for registered users to discuss the stories with fellow fans.
