Alpha Manga is an app that allows users to read English versions of its original manga series currently offered by the company’s online content service AlphaPolis.
New manga content is released either weekly or monthly. The first three chapters are available free of charge. From the fourth chapter onwards, after the expiry of the free content period, further chapters will no longer be available for free; however, users can acquire in-app tickets and spend them to rent out new chapters. Users can also log in to the app and collect free bonus tickets to continue reading further chapters.
Features of the app include:
- Up to 12 bonus tickets per user.
- In addition to the free bonus tickets, users may purchase an unlimited number of tickets.
- Rental period per chapter is 7 days (168 hours). Once the rental period expires, the content is no longer available; however, users can spend their tickets to rent the chapters out again.
- This is a separate service from the existing AlphaPolis service. Users cannot log in using their AlphaPolis account, so they will need to register as a new user on the app.
A couple of titles have already been announced for the service as well!
In addition to GATE and Tskuimichi, titles that will also be readable on Alpha Manga are:
- THE NEW GATE
- Re: Monster
- A Banished Odd-jobber Starts a New Life
- Opening a Cafe in Another World
- An Observation Log of My Fiancee Who Calls Herself a Villainess
- May I Ask for One More Thing?
- and more…
