Between now and next Wednesday, anyone who downloads the app and signs up for a free account receive three full-length graphic novels, including “Attack on Titan: Volume 1” and “Attack on Titan: Before the Fall: Volume 1.”

“This app celebrates ‘Attack on Titan’ as a global phenomenon,” said Alvin Lu, General Manager of Kodansha Advanced Media in a statement. “Hajime Isayama’s original vision is now a world unto itself, and the ‘Attack on Titan’ manga app takes you right into the heart of it — you get caught up with the latest developments at once. And the news and feature feeds provide behind-the-scenes access to the creation of the manga and anime like no place else.”

“As ‘Attack on Titan’ makes its long awaited comeback in 2017, we’re extremely proud to partner with Kodansha Comics — one of the topmanga publishers in the world — and bring their hit franchise to the Motion Book Publisher platform,” added Ben Wolstenholme, CEO and Co-Founder of Madefire. “It’s exciting to be a part of their digital-first strategy with the multimedia iOS app and cutting edge Motion Books, and bring this seminal work to a new generation.”

Today, Hajime Isayama’s “Attack on Titan” — Japan’s best-selling manga in a decade — has run for over 85 chapters, which have been collected into 20 volumes so far. The manga subsequently became an anime, which will debut its second season in April 2017. The “Attack on Titan” app was created through a partnership between Kodansha and mobile-comics platform Madefire.

Debuting in 2009, “Attack on Titan” depicts the battle between the last remnants of humanity who live in cities surrounded by enormous walls and the flesh-eating giants who roam the outside world. The series initially centers on Eren Yeager, his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman and their childhood friend Armin Arlert, who join the military after the town is invaded by Titans and Eren’s mother is eaten. The story later shifts to focus on other characters as the truth about the Titans is revealed.

Kodansha’s “Attack on Titan” app is now available in the iTunes App Store.
