posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Viz Media's Viz Select imprint is offering the first digital volume of Fate/Stay night manga by Dat Nishiwaki (Datto Nishiwaki) for US$4.99. Tokoypop previously released the beginning of this manga adaptation of Type-Moon's visual novel. The manga ended after a roughly seven-year run in 2012.
Viz Media describes the story:
When he was little, high school student and amateur mechanic Shirou Emiya was adopted by a magus man. Now he wants nothing more than to follow in his stepfather's footsteps and become a herp of justice. Little does he know tha a war is waging among some chosen magi, and that he is about to become its focal point... The manga addition to the super-popular multimedia franchise has finally arrived!
Funimation released the Fate/stay night anime series box as one of its first anime DVDs from its distribution deal with Geneon Entertainment followed by a Blu-ray release last year. The anime is getting a remake by ufotable this fall.
The Viz Select imprint is also releasing Yuna Kagesaki's Chibi Vampire manga and Yukiru Sugisaki's D.N.Angel manga digitally. Both were formally released by Tokyopop.
