So Humble are doing another Manga Bundle! This time it’s from the guys over at Kodansha Comics, and has some interesting entiries. However this isn’t like previous manga and comic bundles with more added at the half way mark, the 14 volumes being offered are all you get, but that still represents a huge saving! They’re also sadly reoffering Knights of Sidonia, which was up in another bundle not so long ago. That’s shame IMO, I would have preferred to see something not offered previously.
I’ve picked up this bundle, and since with the exception of one title they’re all new to me, i’ll be doing review posts on them all over the next week!
So let’s look at what you get, bellow the cut!!
Attack on Titan Vol. 1
In this post-apocalyptic scifi story, humanity has been devastated by the bizarre, giant humanoids known as the Titans. Little is known about where they came from or why they are bent on consuming mankind. Seemingly unintelligent, they have roamed the world for years, killing everyone they see. For the past century, what’s left of man has hidden in a giant, three walled city. People believe their 100meterhigh walls will protect them from the Titans, but the sudden appearance of an immense Titan is about to change everything. Winner of the 2011 Kodansha Manga Award (Shonen) and nominated for the prestigious Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize for 2012.
Parasyte Vol. 1
They arrive in silence and darkness. They descend from the skies. They have a hunger for human flesh. They are everywhere. They are parasites, alien creatures who must invade–and take control of–a human host to survive. And once they have infected their victims, they can assume any deadly form they choose: monsters with giant teeth, winged demons, creatures with blades for hands. But most have chosen to conceal their lethal purpose behind ordinary human faces. So no one knows their secret–except an ordinary high school student. Shin is battling for control of his own body against an alien parasite, but can he find a way to warn humanity of the horrors to come?
Inuyashiki Vol. 1
Ichiro Inuyashiki is down on his luck.

On top of everything else, his doctor has revealed that he has cancer and it appears that he has little time left in this world. But just when it seems things couldn’t get any worse, a blinding light in the night sky strikes the earth where Ichiro stands. He later wakes up to find himself unscathed, but he soon starts to notice that there’s something…different about himself. However, it turns out that these strange, new changes are just what Ichiro needs to take a new lease on life and now it seems like there’s nothing to stop him from being a hero worthy of the respect that he never had before…unless, that is, there was someone else out there with these same “changes”…
