VIZ Media is publishing the Demon Slayer manga in America, and it’s pretty excited to see how well the movie has been doing, especially now that it’s broken records at the U.S. box office.
The VIZ Media blog wrote, “To say people are hyped for the Demon Slayer movie is the understatement of the century! The movie smashed all records in Japan and it’s been a long and painful wait for it to come to the States, but it’s finally here! If you’ve never read the manga, then you’re only getting part of the experience. To help you get on the Demon Slayer manga train, we’re making the first digital volume of the manga FREE!”
To be clear, VIZ is only offering the digital version of the first volume for free, not the print version. Their offer is open until May 23, and you can download Demon Slayer from ComiXology, Google Play, iBooks, Kindle and Nook. Go to the VIZ site and it will have links to the free downloads.
