Watch The Subtitled Trailer For The Live-Action ‘My Love Story!!’ Movie And Thrill To The Existence Of Cheesecake

MLS00

If you like Kazune Kawahara and Aruko's My Love Story!! --- which I do --- but you're just not satisfied with experiencing it in its existing forms of the ongoing manga and the new anime that's streaming on Crunchyroll, I have some good news for you. There's a live-action movie adaptation of the first arc of the manga coming in February of 2016!

Sadly, it's not currently planned for a release in America --- at least in theaters --- but if you'd like to see how Takeo, Sunakawa, and Rinko are making the transition to three dimensions, don't fret. There's a trailer out, complete with subtitles, and you can watch it right now!

Bizarro Back Issues: A Christmas Story Of BDSM (Bondage, Deer, Santa Magic) (2005)

Sweet Rein, Sakura Tsukuba

Even though he has international influences that include a third-century Bishop from Turkey and European gift-giving traditions, I think it's fair to say that the modern version of Santa Claus is about as American as Coca-Cola. With as big a Santa Claus fan as I am, though, I'm always interested in seeing how other countries interpret the jollly old elf. That's what led me to Sakura Tsukuba's Santa-themed romance comic, Sweet Rein, and I think it's safe to say that it might just be the single weirdest Christmas comic I've ever read.

If nothing else, I don't think I've ever read another story that was built around the idea of Santa and a Reindeer falling in love through BDSM (Bondage, Deer and Santa Magic), and that's before you get to the part where they're both actually wide-eyed teenagers. Yes, even the reindeer. Especially the reindeer.

On The Cheap: Comixology’s Overwhelming Cyber Monday Sale Has DC, Dark Horse, Manga And More

Hellboy and the BPRD: 1952

I'm still holding out hope that one day, Cyber Monday will mark the day that we all transcended our human forms and uploaded our minds into new bodies with rocket fists and laser eyes instead of just sitting around refreshing online shopping sites all day, but until then, we might as well make the most of it. And folks, Comixology is making the most of it in a way that's downright overwhelming.

Today, in honor of the Internet's biggest shopping day, there are several massive sales going on, from DC, Dark Horse, Viz, Kodansha and more. So if you want to take a break from shopping for everyone else and get yourself a little something --- or buy someone a nice digital gift, I suppose --- then read on for our guide!

On The Cheap: Get Five Volumes Of ‘One-Punch Man’ For $20 In Viz’s Digital Bundle Sale

One Punch Man

If there's one thing you've probably gotten tired of reading about at ComicsAlliance, aside from endless essays that could best be summed up as "Batman is pretty cool," it's probably about how Yusuke Murata and ONE's One Punch Man might just be the single best superhero comic coming out right now. We've given it our prestigious awards, we've reviewed it extensively, and every chance I get, I talk about how its unique combination of hard-hitting action and hilarious comedy that manages to tweak a single joke over and over without ever getting old makes it a must read.

And now, if you still haven't picked it up, there aren't a whole lot excuses left. Right now, Viz is offering up a digital bundle of the first five volumes --- over a thousand pages of one of the best comics on the stands --- for a thin twenty bucks.

Best Comic Books Ever (This Week): New Releases For October 21 2015

BestComics_1021

The question most often asked of the ComicsAlliance staff is a variation of, "Which comic books should I be reading?" or, "I'm new to comics, what's a good place to start?" The Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions can be daunting even for the longtime reader, much less for those totally unfamiliar with creators, characters and publishers, and the dark mysteries of comic book shopping like variants, pre-ordering, and formats.

Buy This BOO! Akira Toriyama’s ‘Cowa’ Is The Vampire Wrestler Road Comedy You Need

Cowa, Akira Toriyama

Akira Toriyama might be the most famous comics creator that I have the least familiarity with, but I'm trying to remedy that. Slowly but surely, I'm making my way through a few of the pieces of his back catalog that aren't necessarily about Goku charging up to Super-Saiyan, and with Halloween on the horizon, I thought it was finally time to sit down with Cowa, the 1997 comedy manga about a little kid vampire on a mission to save his village from the ravages of the monster flu.

I picked it up during Viz's last big digital manga sale and I've been saving it for the one month where I want to read about Draculas slightly more than I do for the rest of the year. Now that I've read it, I can highly, and probably unsurprisingly, recommend it. It's funny, it's adventurous, and it's not at all the story that it looks like at first glance.

Manga Is Still Hugely Popular, So Why Don’t We Talk About It More?

shonenjump

Despite its important market share, huge visibility and ever-rising, record-breaking sales numbers, manga is still largely ignored or scorned by the Western comics community — a term that here means retailers, readers, publishers and some creators — while the critical press and general public thinks of manga as something separate from comics. But why?
