This includes such titles as Naruto and One Piece, Hana Kimi, Magi, Honey and Clover, Ouran High School Host Club, Boys Over Flowers, Nana, Ruroni Kenshin, and Toriko.

The store boasts over 2,000 volumes of manga in total, and there's sure to be something for everyone. If nothing else, maybe this is a great opportunity to get that one friend or family member to try starting a new series.

Viz launches digital manga library on Apple iBooks photo
Viz launches digital manga library on Apple iBooks
by Tim Sheehy

Huge news for digital manga fans -- Viz Media have made their entire digital catalog of graphic novels available via Apple iBooks, with 1,600 volumes of manga spread across 130 titles. That's a LOT of manga to choose from. Better yet, thanks to Apple's cloud technology, iBooks will let you share your manga and bookmarks across each of your favorite Apple devices on the go, such as your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Keeping up with your favorite Viz manga has never been easier. 

To top it all off, Viz plans on keeping your favorite on-going series like Bleach, Naruto and One Piece up to date with the latest installments, but will also be using the service to debut new ones as well, so there's plenty of more to come. Finally, it's important to note that iBooks will allow you to preview each volume of manga before spending your hard earned cash, so you know what you're getting into. I don't know about you guys, but I'm loving the digital revolution so far. Any of you planning on scoping this out?
