      Japan’s BookWalker to Launch in English at NY Comic-Con

      Debuting at NY Comic-Con 2015: BOOK☆WALKER
      KADOKAWA’s Online Store for Manga & Light Novels direct from Japan

      SEPTEMBER 24, 2015 – Kadokawa, one of Japan’s largest media, entertainment, and publishing companies is launching an English language version of BookWalker, their eBook online store in Fall 2015. Promotions will kick off at New York Comic-Con 2015, along with the addition of over 700 comic and prose titles in English – many exclusive to BookWalker.

      Starting on October 8, 2015, readers around the world can check out the redesigned BookWalker website at http://global.bookwalker.jp/ and download updated versions of the BookWalker apps for iOS and Android mobile devices on the Apple App store and Google Play.

      BOOK☆WALKER AT NEW YORK COMIC-CON
      New York Comic-Con attendees will be able to take BookWalker for a test drive at the BookWalker booth at NYCC (#854), or try it out on their smartphones, tablets or personal computers.

      Visitors to the BookWalker booth at NYCC who show the signed in BookWalker account on their phones or tablets will get a chance to win these prizes:

      • Sword Art Online figures, based on the gaming fantasy anime/manga/light novel series by Reki Kawahara
      • Fate/stay night figures, based on the fantasy-adventure visual novel, manga and anime series by Type Moon
      • Ninja Slayer tote bags, based on the action-adventure manga by Bradley Bond and Philip “[email protected]” Morzez and anime series from Studio Trigger
      • Everyone will receive an $8 BookWalker gift card, which can be used to buy almost any manga or light novel on BookWalker.

      JAPAN’s #1 LIGHT NOVEL DISTRIBUTOR ENTERS THE N. AMERICAN MARKET
      BookWalker Co.,Ltd. is already the #1 light novel eBook retailer in Japan, with annual sales of approximately 9 billion yen (USD $75.4 million), and over 1.5 million downloads of the BookWalker apps.

      BookWalker will be increasing its inventory of comics and prose books in English for the worldwide market, with the addition of over 700 titles including exclusive titles on BookWalker and new titles in October 2015, with many more to come. Readers will be able to read their books from the BookWalker iOS, Android, and PC apps, and download the ePub files directly to their devices to read them anytime, even while offline.

      While fans may not be familiar with Kadokawa, many will know their line-up of bestselling manga series, including Neon Genesis Evangelion, Mobile Suit Gundam, and Sword Art Online, plus popular light (prose) novels with current anime tie-ins, including No Game, No Life and Durarara!!
      
      Kadokawa manga and light novels are currently available in print from VIZ Media, Dark Horse Comics, and Vertical Comics, and many of these titles will be available as eBooks from BookWalker too.

      But BookWalker is more than just an eBook store for Kadokawa titles – it’s also gearing up to be the premier destination for manga, novels, books and magazines in both English and Japanese from Japanese and American publishers, including VIZ Media, Dark Horse Comics, Digital Manga, Creek & River, Cork, Futabasha, and Harlequin, with more to be added soon.

      Kadokawa’s expansion into the English language eBook market is just the first of step toward their goal to make BookWalker a “full-fledged, global ebook business,” said BookWalker President Yoichi Yasumoto.

      “In Japan, BookWalker is very popular ebook store with a lineup of popular manga and light novel titles from over 600 publishers, including Kodansha, Shueisha, and Square Enix,” Yasumoto explained. “Because we’re part of the Kadokawa group, one of Japan’s largest publisher of manga and light novels, BookWalker can differentiate itself from its competitors by giving readers special extras, such as free manga, giveaways of limited edition booklets, autographed volumes of manga, and limited edition illustrations that are available only to BookWalker members. Get ready for these new and exciting changes to BookWalker, as we create a one-of-a-kind eBook store where fans can find all of their favorites comics, novels and magazines in one spot, direct from Japan!”

      MEET KADOKAWA BOOK☆WALKER EXECUTIVES AT NY COMIC-CON

Please contact Norika Suzuki for enquiries or to schedule on-site or email interviews with BookWalker executives at or before NYCC.

        Im guessing the bookwalker will just have the same already licensed light novels from other publishers as ebooks in their app. That description doesnt seem to imply series that arent licensed are going to be added in English on it (light novels). UNless they are going to put jpn and eng books up there.

              *Yawn* its basically just an authorized official doujin for shingeki which has already been done for other properties. Would be more interesting if it was JPN artists like done for EVA. Disappointment incoming because they didnt get any BL writers for the Shingeki anthology.

                You don't know if one of those writers might include a gay relationship for an Attack on Titan story. It might actually be better than if a BL author had written it.

                This is a BFD. This is like the reverse of mangaka doing Spiderman, Batman or Wolverine. This will bring in new fans to Shingeki no Kyojin. And some of them may very well want to see LGBT material there.

                  I highly doubt there are comic fans that buy comics an author name alone so I doubt this is going to reach new fans who don't already like Shingeki.

                    This just says you don't know anything about comic fans.

                    Snyder is currently the premiere Batman writer working across several books. Gail Simone has a legion of fans that follow her from work to work across publishers. The two of them alone will draw a lot of attention to this. Plus both are huge social media presences in the comics world - something that the manga side doesn't have.
                    Anime is not a right. It is a privilege, a consumer product, art, work for hire, a luxury, a hobby, entertainment.

                    Find me on Facebook and Follow Me on Twitter to see plenty of silliness in the anime and manga worlds and much, much more.

                      These people would really buy a $30 book for one 30page comic to read from them? Highly doubtful.

                          These are fans that spend $3.99 on average for a new monthly issue and will spend hundreds on back issues of single issues. A $30 compilation book including a lot of high profile talent is an easy purchase before even factoring in discounts.

                          Again, this just says you don't know comic book readers.

                            posted on 2015-10-09 07:00 EDT

                            Comic based on Koike's Lone Wolf and Cub manga reimagines 2003 comic of same name
                            Dark Horse Comics announced at its "Crafting the Original Story" panel at New York Comic Con on Thursday that it will release Lone Wolf 2100, a four-issue comic series inspired by Kazuo Koike's Lone Wolf and Cub manga. The series remakes Mike Kennedy and Francisco Ruiz Velasco's 2003 Lone Wolf 2100 comic.

                            Eric Heisserer, Miguel Sepulveda, and David Gomez will create the comic. The comic has a futuristic setting, and will revolve around the android Itto, who is tasked with protecting the child Daisy Ogami, whose DNA holds the key to the cure for a mutating virus that is rapidly spreading across the world. Daisy's uncle Jax tries to prevent the cure from being implemented, and attempts to either control or kill Daisy.
