Viz Media Launches Rosario+Vampire Series For the iPad as Manga Madness Promo Continues

Mar 7th 2011

Special Monthly Promotion Makes All Volume 1 Titles Available For Only $0.99; New Series Complements Latest Updates To 6 Other Popular Manga Titles

Viz Media continues to celebrate March Manga Madness with another round of new updates to the VIZ MANGA APP for the Apple® iPad™ mobile device. Today the company debuts the sexy action series ROSARIO+VAMPIRE and continues a special March-only promotion that makes all Volume 1 manga titles available for only $0.99 (instead of $4.99).

The VIZ MANGA APP is the ideal destination for iPad users to download best-loved manga (graphic novel) series. By the end of March, over 100 volumes will be available for download. Users are also encouraged to enter to win a $50 iTunes gift card by taking the Viz Manga App survey.

ROSARIO+VAMPIRE (rated ‘T+’ for Older Teens) was written and created by Akihisa Ikeda and has become a best-selling fan favorite. All-around average teenager Tsukune can't get accepted to any high school save one...but on his first day, he finds the rest of the student body doesn't appear average in the least. Best of all, the cutest girl on campus can't wait to fling her arms around his neck! Wait a sec'--are those her teeth around his neck too...? Tsukune's going to have one heck of a hickey when he gets home from Monster High! But does he have a chance in H-E-double-hockey-sticks of raising his grades at a school where the turf war isn't between the jocks and the nerds but the vampires and the werewolves?

The latest updates for March also feature additions to 6 other popular Viz Media series currently available. More special offers will be announced throughout the month of March and users should check the App frequently for new announcements.
