These are based on the UK release dates! Though, there’s not usually much difference on dates these days. Also, the date listed is the date of initial publication. In some cases, digital & physical release dates are the same, but in quite a few others the physical release follows behind by about a week (or vice versa in rarer cases), so make sure you double check before you head out to the shops!

Digital Manga Publishing


You probably noticed, but this time I grouped together releases by publisher. Each manga publisher has their own sort of style, so this might make it a bit easier to parse the types of releases. When there’s this many, you’ve got to try something to make it a little more organised, right?



Also, when buying digital don’t forget that even though buying on Kindle (usually) gets you a Comixology version of the manga, it doesn’t work vice versa. But also, they have different pricing, and one storefront might not always be the cheaper than the other. Weird, huh? So make sure you check!


Are you buying anything this month?




Uh, both a Marvel manga and a Pirates of the Caribbean manga? (ノ#-_-)ノ

I got into Drifters with the anime, but I’ve not tried the manga yet!

As usual the 3-in-1 releases are a great way to speed through a manga. I remember waiting for Naruto each week! ლ(。-﹏-。 ლ)

I play a lot of Splatoon, so I should really try this new manga. (/^▽^)/

Spread the love!
