Viz Raising Prices On Digital Manga Volumes

Fans may want to buy up all the digital Viz Media manga they can while it can still be purchased for around $4.99 a volume, because the price is going up to $6.99 starting October 1, the publisher announced over the weekend.

Print volumes will retain their price point of $9.99.

Here’s Viz’s explanation for the hike:

This was a difficult decision, but one we need to make to keep up with the cost of gathering great digital manga. Manga purchases by fans worldwide help support hundreds of artists, writers, editors, producers and now engineers who bring you this great content in digital form. These contributors pour their hearts and minds into bringing this content to you, and your purchases allow us to compensate them fairly.

You can check out what’s available digitally (and is still $4.99-5.99 for now) at, on iOS and Android devices, Kindle, Nook and Kobo.
