Free eBooks from

Honto is giving away a large selection of their eBooks (including manga, light novels, novels, magazines, etc) for free to promote their eBook business for a limited time. Some popular titles include “Your Lie In April (四月は君の嘘),” “Attack on Titan – Before the fall (進撃の巨人),” “Rurouni Kenshin (るろうに剣心 )”. They are mostly first volumes, but a great selection nonetheless.

Either way, they’re free; no strings attached. All you have to do is add the eBooks that show up as 0 yen in cart, and go through checkout. (It takes 2 clicks). Afterward, you can access them by opening up the honto app on your device and it should show up on your shelf.

Happy Holidays!
