The latest Humble Bundle
is offering a deal on 27 different isekai manga from publisher Kodansha
The Isekai Bundle
features a variety of Kodansha's most popular titles within the genre, including I'm Standing on a Million Lives
, which was recently adapted into an anime series, Am I Actually the Strongest?, Shangri-La Frontier
and The Hero Life of a (Self-Proclaimed) "Mediocre" Demon!
Similar to Humble's bundle offers on games and other software, users can pay what they want for the initial selection of titles, but will be rewarded with more content if they donate above certain amounts. A donation of $25 gets you all the digital manga being offered in the deal - including multiple volumes of several of the series included - which averages out to less than a dollar per series.
Proceeds from the bundle will be donated to BINC, a non-profit organization that helps independent book stores owners, comic book shops, and booksellers recover after unexpected financial difficulties. Many specialty comic shops, anime stores, and book sellers have struggled in the past year due to closures related to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, so a donation to help the owners and employees of these small businesses at this time is especially appreciated.
Humble Bundle was founded in 2010. The site started by selling bundles of PC games to benefit charities such as the American Red Cross, Child's Play, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. The site has since expanded to sell individual games outside of their charity bundles, and now also offers games for consoles, Mac, and other platforms. Users who buy software on the platform can choose how their money is split between Humble Bundle, the titles' publisher and the charity.
The Isekai Bundle has already raised more than $4,000 for charity.
