VIZ MEDIA TURNS UP THE HEAT ON SUMMER READING WITH NEW BLEACH AND NARUTO MANGA BOX SETS
Latest Box Sets For Seminal Manga Properties Set For Release In July; Each Set Contains 20+ Manga Volumes Along With Exclusive Bonus Premiums
San Francisco, CA – VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest publisher, distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America, prepares to thrill ardent fans of the BLEACH and NARUTO manga (graphic novel) series as it announces the forthcoming release of the latest box set editions for both titles.
Scheduled for release on July 7th, the BLEACH Manga Box Set 2 and NARUTO Manga Box Set 2 each contain over twenty individual manga volumes at a substantial savings over buying them individually. Exclusive bonus premiums, such as special mini-comics and full-color posters, are also included in each set.
BLEACH Manga Box Set 2 · Rated “T” for Teens · MSRP: $214.99 U.S. / CAN · Available July 7th
The latest BLEACH Manga Box Set contains Volumes 22-48 and includes an exclusive mini-comic containing the pilot story of the bestselling series along with a full-color, double-sided poster. In creator Tite Kubo’s manga series, BLEACH, Ichigo Kurosaki never asked for the ability to see ghosts – he was born with the gift. When his family is attacked by a Hollow--a malevolent lost soul – Ichigo becomes a Soul Reaper, dedicating his life to protecting the innocent and helping the tortured spirits themselves find peace.
In the latest Box Set volumes, after finally rescuing their friend Rukia, Ichigo and friends return to their quiet lives in the world of the living. However, the peace is short-lived as new enemies arrive from the world of the Hollows. Aizen is back, and Ichigo may be the only one who can stop him for good!
