Square Enix Heavily Censors Sexualized Artwork From Various Series For English Release Of Manga UP! App

Square Enix released the global version of its manga Up!  Manga app this week.  Demand for online entertainment content has increased in Japan over the past two years

These trends have prompted the company to introduce a global version of its app for the first time, with the goal of bringing manga content to even more readers outside Japan.

Manga Up!  Will offer 160 titles, including 100 new English translations, as the latest installments of several ongoing series launch almost immediately after their Japan release.

The app will be available everywhere but in Japan and works in both iOS and Android versions, including tablets.

The app launched with 160 manga titles including Horimia, The Case Study of Vanitas, Fullmetal Alchemist and My Dress-Up Darling.  There are currently over 100 new English translations.

Square Enix released two new trailers for the upcoming Fullmetal Alchemist mobile game.

Trailers focus on showcasing quick scenes with characters that anime and manga fans will be familiar with.
