The North American manga publisher Yen Press announced via Twitter on Tuesday that it added the first two volumes of Kiyohiko Azuma's manga Yotsuba&! to the company's Yen Plus application for iOS devices. Each digital volume costs US$8.99.
Yen Press licensed Azuma's manga in 2009 and picked up where the series' former licensee, A.D. Vision's ADV Manga imprint, left off. ADV had licensed and released the first five volumes of Yotsuba&! and had solicited volume 6 of the manga for a February 2008 release prior to the company's 2009 closure.
The Yen Press application launched this past January, and it primarily features Yen Press' original works rather than titles licensed from Japan. Last year, the company also shifted its Yen Plus anthology to a digital format. The new Yen Plus anthology includes Yotsuba&! and kakifly's K-ON!
