VIZ Media has just begun making its digital library of manga titles available for KOBO eReaders, with 500 volumes debuting today – and a library of 1500 volumes across 130 titles coming to North America in the near future.
The launch list includes the latest volumes of blockbusters like Naruto (rated ‘T’ for Teens), Bleach (rated ‘T’ for Teens), Blue Exorcist (rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens), One Piece (rated ‘T’ for Teens) and Vampire Knight (rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens). VIZ Media has also synchronized its digital publishing schedule for future manga titles to have near-simultaneous domestic release of their print counterparts, closing the gap between print and digital manga formats. The complete library of VIZ Media manga titles is available at www.kobo.com/viz.
The official press release follows the jump.
