Vertical Offers Twin Spica, Drops of God, 7 Billion Needles E-Books (Updated)
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The North American manga publisher Vertical confirmed with ANN that it is releasing Kou Yaginuma's Twin Spica, Tadashi Agi and Shū Okimoto's The Drops of God, and Nobuaki Tadano's 7 Billion Needles manga for e-readers this spring. The releases will be multi-platform with compatibility for the Amazon Kindle, iBookstore, and NOOK.
Other series may be added in the future depending on license agreements.
The company finished Twin Spica last year and stated the series was "likely to go out of print" in English.
Thanks to Vito Plahuta for the news tip.
Update: The manga titles are only on the Kindle, iBookstore, and NOOK. Vertical does have novels and non-fiction books on those platforms as well as on Sony eReader and Kobo devices. The e-books are re-releases of the existing print volumes for these titles.
