Digital manga subscription service Azuki will begin releasing ebook editions for two of its exclusively licensed manga series on various digital platforms. These include BookWalker, Amazon, Apple Books, and Google Play Books.
The first ebook volumes of My Dear Detective: Mitsuko’s Case File and Turning the Tables on the Seatmate Killer! are now both available for pre-order on BookWalker and will go on sale on March 23, 2023. Amazon, Apple, and Google pre-orders will be available in the next few days afterwards.
Natsumi Ito’s My Dear Detective: Mitsuko’s Case Files was first launched in Futabasha’s Manga Action magazine on May 18, 2021. Three tankoubon volumes have been released so far.
Azuki describes the My Dear Detective: Mitsuko’s Case Files manga as:
In 1930s Japan, female detective Mitsuko solves cases alongside her handsome and perceptive assistant Saku. This critically acclaimed feminist detective story delivers classic Sherlock Holmes-style sleuthing with a cast of lovable characters, and features detailed end notes by translator Samuel Messner.
The manga adaptation of Turning the Tables on the Seatmate Killer! is written by Aresanzui and illustrated by Miyakobachi, based on Sabamizore’s original light novel artwork. The manga series was first launched in Futabasha’s Gaugau Monster magazine on April 14, 2020. Five tankoubon volumes have been released in total so far.
Azuki describes the manga’s story as:
Yui has a reputation as the notorious “Seatmate Killer”: any boy who sits next to her falls in love, only to inevitably have their heart broken. But her new Seatmate Yuuki is so clueless and deadpan that he seems totally immune to her charms, and soon Yui finds herself dealing with some feelings of her own.
Both series are included and updated in Azuki’s manga subscription service, which is available on web browsers and in the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. All titles on Azuki are available worldwide, except in Japan.
Fans can start reading manga for free on Azuki with advertisements or upgrade to a premium account for US$4.99 a month. A 14-day free trial and discounted annual plan are also available.
