Digital Manga Service Amimaru Launches iPad App

iPad app available worldwide

HELSINKI, FINLAND, Oct. 5, 2013 - Digital manga service Amimaru has launched an iPad application.

The app is a free download, and is globally available from the App Store as of today. At the moment, Amimaru is the only legal manga-specific service on iPad that has no geographical restrictions.

The Amimaru iPad app uses a point system for buying manga. Point purchases are made using Apple ID, so there's no need to give Amimaru your credit card details or for a convoluted account-creating process. All purchased manga is downloaded to the user's device for offline reading, so there's also no need to be afraid of losing purchases in any situation.

Purchases made in the iPad app are synced with Amimaru's Facebook app, and vice versa.

Amimaru requires iOS 7. This means that it works on all iPad models except the original 2010 one; from iPad 2 onwards.


Founded in 2011, Amimaru Ltd is a Finnish company that aims to provide manga readers all over the world a new and easier way to consume and purchase manga and receive the appreciation of their favorite authors.

As a digital distributor, the company currently publishes manga using through its iPad and Facebook applications.

Amimaru aims to distribute manga from a wide variety of companies in the future, eliminating the need for consumers to use multiple services for their online manga reading needs. In the future Amimaru also plans to provide manga creators a way to get their works translated and sold digitally to readers all over the world without the need of a Japanese publisher as a middleman.

The service was launched in May 2012 as a Facebook app. The iPad app saw its global launch in October 2013.
