It is also adding Ore Space Dandy (I, Space Dandy), Hiroki Katsumata's new Japanese-language manga based on the Space Dandy anime, at the end of this month.
Manga Box describes the story of Why Can't I Get a Girlfriend?:
Seiya Toudouin is athletic, good-looking, gets perfect grades, and is from a fantastically wealthy family... but he just can't seem to get a girlfriend! "Why? Why can't I get a girlfriend?" he asks himself, but the more he does, the more chances slip away from him, and the more he wants one, the more he fails! This is a lonely battle for love that anyone can empathize with!
The manga ended in Kodansha's Monthly Shōnen Rival magazine this month. A live-action drama adaptation of the series is currently in development.
Manga Box describes The Godlike Gambler Arimaria: Once Upon a Time's (Tenkei no Arimaria - Once Upon a Time) story:
Japan: the Gambler's Paradise! The rich and beautiful Maria is well-known as a legendary gambler who will take on any challenge, no matter how unreasonable or impossible! But what happens when she meets a lowly slave who solves her riddle..? Twist after twist! So tense you'll forget to breathe!
Manga Box notes that the series will run for five parts and is exclusive to the app.
Some of the manga featured on Manga Box are being published simultaneously in both English and Japanese, and the app is available on the iTunes store and on Google Play in 140 countries and regions around the world. DeNA also plans to add more languages to the app in the future.
