Kodansha launched the free "Magazine Pocket" manga app for iOS and Android devices on Thursday. The app features manga that are already serialized in Kodansha's Weekly Shōnen Magazine, and it is also exclusively serializing two spinoff manga, one for Fairy Tail, and one for Ace of Diamond.

Kyōta Shibano is drawing the Fairy Tail Gaiden: Kengami no Sōryū (Fairy Tail Spinoff: Twin Dragons of Sabertooth) spinoff of Hiro Mashima's Fairy Tail manga, and Yahiro Magome is drawing the Daiya no B!! Seidō Kōkō Suisōgaku-bu (Brass of Diamond!! Seidō High School Wind Instrument Club) spinoff of Yūji Terajima's Ace of Diamond manga. These two manga are available for a fee via a point system.

Fairy Tail Gaiden: Kengami no Sōryū follows guild master Sting, Rogue, Yukino, Minerva, and other members of the Sabertooth Guild. Daiya no B!! Seidō Kōkō Suisōgaku-bu will launch on August 19.

The app features free versions of the first few chapters of the following 11 manga:

The app features more than 30 manga total, with some chapters being free and some requiring a fee via a point system. The app also allows users to purchase full issues of Weekly Shōnen Magazine, from this year's 24th issue to the present issue. Users can alternately purchase a monthly subscription for 840 yen (about US$6.78) per month for the issues.
