At Mangamo’s industry panel last Friday at Virtual Crunchyroll Expo, the mobile manga subscription service announced the release of DEATHDEUS: Hero of the Dead and My Evil Stepbrother, marking the titles’ English debuts. The service also announced the launch of the classic manga Erementar Gerade and the sequel Erementar Gerade: Flag of Blue Sky. All titles are available to read now on the Mangamo app for iPhone and iPad, available for download on the Apple App Store. Mangamo is offering a 30-day free trial for new users.
DEATHDEUS: Hero of the Dead is the exciting new shonen manga from Mori Kotaro, the artist for the manga adaptation of the famed Gurren Lagann. In this post-apocalyptic action tale, humanity is plagued by the undead Reversed, and no one can stand against them. No one except Shion-chan, a high school girl from another time, and she’ll resurrect this rotten world with her maiden fists!
My Evil Stepbrother by Tomu Shinonome spans the genres of drama, high school and real life and tells the story of Satono, the lonely daughter of a mom who is always working. She’s so afraid of being left alone, she self-isolates to prevent anyone from leaving her. When her mom suddenly remarries, she gains an older stepbrother, Ryo, who only wants to hang out with his friends. All Satono wants is a family, but can this pair work out their differences?
Erementar Gerade, the shonen action/sci fi manga by Mayumi Azuma, launched the hugely popular anime franchise. During a routine raid, sky pirate Coud Van Giruet discovers a most unusual bounty: Ren, an “Edel Raid” and a living weapon. When Ren is captured by Beazon, an evil Edel Raid dealer, Coud quickly realizes that Ren is even more prized than he first thought. Ren’s only chance of rescue lies with Coud and the agents of Arc Aile. Find the complete 96-chapter series on the Mangamo app, plus the sequel series, Erementar Gerade: Flag of Blue Sky.
