SINGAPORE - April 29, 2022 | In a month filled with content acquisition and announcements, INKR continues its announcements with addition of the global release of aNCHOR’s Muv-Luv and Muv-Luv Alternative on its site for free for INKR Extra members or for coins for non-members. All chapters will be available starting on April 29, 2022, on web browsers, iOS devices, and Android devices.

Known amongst manga fans and its deeply passionate following, the Muv-Luv story centers around an interdimensional love story that takes high school romance on a roller-coaster ride through the depths of despair, culminating in a sci-fi grand finale of epic proportions. Its story waxes and wanes culminating the trilogy in the critically acclaimed Muv-Luv Alternative, which can be subsequently watched on

“We are super excited to be collaborating with aNCHOR to bring Muv-Luv to our fans here at INKR,” said Hieu Tran, co-founder and Head of Operations. “Many here at INKR have been fans since its original run back in 2003, so to finally have the opportunity to feature it on our site has been surreal for us and hopefully our readers too!”
