There’s a lot of Knights of Sidonia and Blame! doings at Kodansha Comics this week. Through next Wednesday, they’re offering a a giant stack of manga on pay-what-you want digital media service Humble Bundle, which will get you two of the new collections of Blame! and all of Knights of Sidonia for $17. Money goes to Kodansha Comics, three charities (Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, Worldreader, and Mental Health Foundation), and, if you’d like, a fourth charity of your choice via the PayPal Giving Fund.
There’s also a sweepstakes to win a special T-shirt Nihei himself designed for his clothing brand, Toha Heavy Industries.
And, to promote it all, they’ve posted a video of Nihei drawing Tsumugi from Knights of Sidonia.
This video was taken during the reception of Nihei’s original design toy exhibit at BAIT store during SDCC 2016.
