Square Enix Manga Collection Humble Bundle

The days, it’s easier than ever to buy manga, both online and in print. Now you can pick up your favorite titles from Japan easily while also supporting their creators and publishers. And if you want to go the extra mile — benefiting even more people with your purchase — there’s a Humble Bundle for you!

Square Enix is currently offering a digital manga collection featuring 28 ebooks. And the funds go toward hard-working book and manga lovers like yourself. Read on to find out more!


More for Less

My Dress-Up Darling

The nerdy urge to buy manga can be an expensive one, which is part of why Humble Bundles are so great — including this one. You can get tons of your favorite thing for an impossible price, and know that the money you’re spending is going toward an excellent cause. In this case, you can take home 28 volumes of digital manga (a $271 value) for as little as $25.

Don’t have that much to throw around right now? You can scale down your donation to as low as $1, which will still get you three ebooks. $12 will get you 11 ebooks. So even at the lowest possible price point, you’re getting a fantastic deal!


Catch up on Big Titles

Cherry Magic

This Humble Bundle isn’t made up of little-known titles, either? Square Enix is letting you buy manga that inspired popular anime like My Dress-Up Darling, The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glassesand The Great Jahy Will Not Be Defeated! You can also get ahead on next season’s titles with five volumes of Cherry Magic! or get ahead on this season’s Ragna Crimson.

Looking for new titles to explore? Beauty and the Feast and A Man & His Cat are also part of the bundle. And if you missed out on the adorable My Clueless First Friend anime, why not start with the manga? All of these titles are part of the bundle, with the $25 and up option giving your four or five volumes of many of them. You’ll have plenty to read over the holidays!


A Good Cause

The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses

When you pick up this Humble Bundle, you’ll also be benefiting the people you buy manga from! Proceeds from this bundle benefit the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC), which has been helping brick-and-mortar book and comic stores stay in business for more than 20 years. Your donation will help these stores’ owners and employees endure unexpected financial hardships, keep their stores open, and provide for their families.

Over the years, BINC has provided more than $7 million in financial aid and scholarship for more than 7,800 families. So far, this bundle has raised $2,850 for charity — and you can help! When you donate, you can specify how much of your donation you want to go toward BINC, the publisher, and Humble Bundle. So you know exactly where every penny goes!

This bundle is only available until January 6, so donate and start reading now!
