NR: So jazzed that the Viz Manga app is now available for Kindle Fire, which is my tablet of choice. I've used it a few times already. Hint: it is awesome! Manga looks so slick on the Fire's screen; one can only imagine what it looks like on the HD version.

VIZ MEDIA ANNOUNCES DIGITAL GIFTING OPTIONS NOW AVAILABLE ON VIZMANGA.COM

Manga For Every Taste, With Over 1,000 Digital Volumes And WEEKLY SHONEN JUMP ALPHA To Choose From

VIZ Media provides an easy way to give the gift of digital manga accessible via VIZManga.com for desktop and laptop computers.
