VIZ Media Launches Naruto Digital Promotions to Celebrate the End of the Series
VIZ Media marks the finale of the Naruto manga series with several special promotions and digital releases that will celebrate the series throughout October 2015.
VIZ Media, in partnership with ReedPOP and The Japan Foundation, will welcome manga artist Masashi Kishimoto the creator of the Naruto manga, for a series of very special U.S. appearances during the 2015 New York Comic Con, which begins this week in Manhattan at the Javits Convention Center.
As part of the promotion, VIZ Media unveils a new Naruto App that is available now for free download from the iOS and Google Play stores. With the app, readers can enjoy a new Naruto chapter every day that will be available for free for seven days. Fans also can purchase and enjoy Naruto digital manga volumes through the app, which synchs to the VIZManga.com platform.
Readers that purchase any digital volume or bundle of Naruto manga during the month of October from either the Naruto App or VIZManga platform will be given a digital retrospective gift containing the series’ pilot chapter, editorial commentary, pivotal chapter reviews and a fan art gallery. Check additional VIZ Media partner sites for availability.
VIZ Media’s Weekly Shonen Jump also jumps into the action with a special “Jump Back” campaign for Naruto. Readers can revisit earlier chapters from the series, beginning with the series’ second story arc, starting in today’s digital issue. A complete full chapter of Naruto will be added every week to the usual Weekly Shonen Jump line-up. Visit http://shonenjump.viz.com/ for more information. In the second story arc chapters, it’s been two years since Naruto left to train with Jiraiya. Now he reunites with his old friends to find out he’s still not the most accomplished of his former teammates. But when one of them is kidnapped, it’s up to Naruto to prove he’s got the stuff to save them.
During October, VIZ Media further marks the conclusion of Naruto with a selection of special manga bundles available starting Oct. 6, 2015, for a limited time until the end of the month. The final installment of the series, Volume 72, debuts digitally on Oct. 6, 2015.
