Attack on Titan publisher is getting its own manga app



Getting into manga is both tough and accessible for a casual reader. While the popularity of the medium allows titles to promulgate so easily online, readers sometimes have to rely on fan translations and bootleg copies. Kodansha, one of the biggest names in the manga scene, is creating a platform to release official English-translated titles in the United States called K Manga.

In the manga scene, Kodansha is one of the most recognizable publishers, creating modern classics like Attack on Titan and Ghost in the Shell. Naturally, the publisher has a lot of history to bank on.

Starting May, Kodansha will release K Manga, an app which will offer access to both classic and newly released titles. On launch, the service will have around 400 titles available for users. These will include Attack on Titan, Fairy Tail, Blue Lock, and Tokyo Revengers. It will also release new chapters, officially translated in English, first before any other platform.

Right now, the company has not announced how the app will price its library. The announcement mentioned that it will offer select chapters for free, opening the possibility for a paid way to access more chapters.

K Manga will launch on May 10 in the United States.

Tinder now lets users specify pronouns and relationship type

Including non-monogamous relationships



The world of dating evolves by the day. As long as consent exists between all parties involved, dating can happen between persons of different genders and quantities. To reflect on how the world is now, Tinder is allowing users to specify their preferred pronouns and monogamous/non-monogamous relationship types.

The availability of pronoun preference has been a long time coming for the popular dating app. With gender exploration and fluidity being important parts for today’s identity building, defining pronouns, especially on a dating platform, adds a lot of value for people looking for partners. Starting now, Tinder will offer 15 options for users and the ability to choose up to four from that pool.

In addition to more pronouns, Tinder will also allow users to specify what type of relationship they are interested in. Specifically, they can specify if they’re interested in monogamy, ethical non-monogamy, open relationships, polyamory, or are open to exploring. According to a survey from the company, 41 percent of Gen Z users are interested in non-monogamous relationships, prompting the availability of these options.

Finally, Tinder will also allow users to select how long of a relationship they are looking for. Users can now specify if they want a long-term relationship, long-term open to short, short-term open to long, short-term, new friends, or are still figuring it out.

However, the new features are not available everywhere just yet. For now, the United States is getting all three features.
