Japanese publisher Kodansha announced it will make the Osamu Tezuka Bunko Complete Works manga collection available on digital platforms. Kodansha first announced this collection in 2008 to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Osamu Tezuka's birthday. Between October 2009 and May 2012, 200 volumes of Tezuka's manga were published as part of this collection.

All 200 volumes will be made available over a period of 10 months. The first batch made available on May 29 includes:

Bunko edition releases contain considerably more pages than the standard manga tankobon releases, allowing for more material to be printed in a single volume. This format is widely used in republication of manga whose tankobon volumes may be out of print.

Apple's iBookstore, eBook Initiative Japan, Amazon.co.jp, Yahoo! Japan Bookstore, and Rakuten's Kobo are among the platforms which will publish these volumes digitally.

This is exciting. I'm kinda curious about the Black Jack volumes especially after seeing Young Black Jack getting an anime adaptation recently.

There will be more in the next installment. There's 200 volumes after all.

Hopefully we don't have to wait much long for the Astro boy volumes.

Black Jack aside Dororo looks pretty interesting from this list. ^^ I'm looking forward to seeing what's on the next few batches.
