VIZ Media Announces Its Final Digital Manga Update for 2015
VIZ Media finishes 2015 with a second digital manga update for December.
New titles include the launch of Boys Over Flowers Season 2, which debuts digitally on Dec. 22, 2015 and resumes creator Yoko Kamio’s shojo manga story set two years after the conclusion of the original series. Eri Sakondo’s modern-day spin on a classic Japanese folktale, Momogumi Plus Senki, arrives on Dec. 29, 2015 and completes the new series debuts for the month.
Readers are invited to take advantage of the second-half of December’s selection of Digital Manga Starter Bundles that offer the opportunity to dive into multiple collected volumes from a wide collection of acclaimed series at special savings over buying the volumes individually. Bundles are available to readers for a limited time exclusively from VIZManga.com and ComiXology.
VIZ Media’s Weekly Shonen Jump is also holding a digital promotion that runs until Jan. 31, 2016, offering special annual membership pricing of only $19.99 (regularly priced at $25.99) for an entire year of the hottest manga content straight from Japan. As part of this promotion, new and current annual subscribers will receive a digital version of the Naruto Yearbook, available Dec. 28, 2015. The 64-page digital supplement features the climactic final chapter of the hit manga series along with the opening chapter of Naruto: The Seventh Hokage and the Scarlet Spring, an interview with creator Masashi Kishimoto, fan art galleries and much more.
Continuing for a series of limited two-day periods throughout the remainder of Dec. 2015, VIZ Media’s manga Holiday “Flash Sale” will offer $2 off select titles across all of its major imprints. “Flash Sale” titles are available at VIZManga.com and via the VIZ Manga app, and readers are invited to check the site each week for the rest of December 2015 to see which favorite titles will be marked down from the following imprints:

12 years after the conclusion of the original smash-hit rom-com series, Yoko Kamio brings readers Boys Over Flowers Season 2. Set two years after the members of the legendary “F4” clique have graduated from Eitoku Academy, a new group called the “Correct 5” is around to rule the school.

After transferring to a new school, Yuuki, a distaster-attracting young student, is told that he is actually the reincarnation of Momotaro from Japanese foklore. What’s worse, he was cursed by demons in his previous life. And if he doesn’t break the curse, he will die on the day he turns 18. Luckily for Yuuki, he won’t have to battle these demons alone–his three mystical minions, Yukishiro, Masahiko and Sawa will be there to instruct and protect him every step of the way.
