Anime is easier than ever to watch thanks to streaming services such as Crunchyroll, but if you’re looking to get to the very root of one of Japan’s finest exports, you can’t go wrong with the manga that these animated series are adapted from. Over on Amazon, you can get your hands on some excellent reading material, as Demon Slayer and My Hero Academia paperback boxsets have been massively discounted.
Demon Slayer, which is set in Taisho-era Japan and follows kind-hearted swordsman Tanjiro Kamado as he embarks on quest to cure his sister of her demonic infection, is going for just $96 with its coupon applied. With a regular retail price of $200, this gigantic collection of all 23 volumes of the hit manga ships inside of a beautifully designed slipcase.
The anime adaptations have received rave reviews so far and has only scratched the surface of the Demon Slayer saga, so if you have an anime fan in your life, this makes for an excellent gift.
Another great manga series that has had its price slashed is My Hero Academia. Amazon is offering the first 20 volumes of the series for just $76.79 instead of the usual $180 that it retails for.
