As fans eagerly await Season 2 of the Attack on Titan anime, they can catch up on the manga that started it all and can get a peek into what the future of the anime holds. Previously, the English translated chapters of the Attack on Titan manga have not been released on the same day as in Japan, leaving the fans to wait for an official translation and release.

That wait is no longer a problem, as 17 Kodansha series manga will now be released the same day as in Japan through ComiXology, starting with Attack on Titan Chapter 80.

“English readers can now buy chapters of their favorite manga series the same day Japanese fans are picking up new issues in convenience stores,” said Alvin Lu, General Manager at Kodansha Advanced Media in a press release. “A simul-pub initiative has never been done like this before—it’s effectively a new format and it’s made possible by digital publishing. Doing this through ComiXology and Amazon connects the global readership for this broad range of series at a level we’ve never seen.”

The Kodansha line of manga was acquired by ComiXology in September 2015, and with the release of Chapter 80, the digital comics app has expanded its library to over 1900 manga chapters for readers to enjoy.

“We’re so excited to completely cut the wait time for English-speaking manga fans to no wait at all to read same day as Japan releases of their favorite Kodansha titles” said ComiXology’s Senior Director of Communication, Chip Mosher, in a press release. “Immediate access to new popular Kodansha manga is something we know both comiXology and Kindle fans love and we’re thrilled to be able to provide that access to manga fans everywhere on the same day all around the world.”

Attack on Titan may be the biggest series name in the ComiXology same-day initiative, but there are plenty of series that will be releasing on a weekly biweekly, monthly and semi-regular basis. Here’s the list of series with their release schedules below.
