The free download service of Love Hina manga on J-Comi website began on November 26th. The total number of the downloads has reached one million times in three days.

Previous topic: Mangaka Akamatsu Ken To Launch Free Download Service of Discontinued Manga

Akamatsu Ken said the users have purchased significant number of items through the attached Amazon Associate program. He was perplexed to see they have bought not only his Negima manga but also USB cables and Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei manga. He jokingly complained that it's humiliating to earn money with the help of Kumeta.

The beta test of Love Hina download will end in one month and Akamatsu will decide whether to launch J-Comi service assessing the performance of the beta test.

Love hina is kinda outdated..

and I hate its ending btw...

was it continued by any chance??
Why are you watching the S2 of the anime that you loathe?
¬‿¬ And give the suggestions board some love please.

An idea similar to my suggestion here got implemented but because of another guy. But I get to enjoy its benefits. So I Got That Goin' For Me, Which is Nice.

that's just 1M in Japan, if he does this internationally I'm pretty sure it'll triple that and maybe more

hopefully if it does prove useful we may see Negima! on there up for downloads as well as other manga from his collaborators..

I can't really tell with my limited japanese, but I think in the web dairy entry he added another paragraph to the tweet, apologizing for not understanding how Amazon counts the purchases.

Something old is bad? And I loved Love Hina's ending, what else could you want?

Anyway 14 downloads from me alone, I own all of Love Hina but decided to grab them anyway, try to teach myself Japanese using it.

Well that's nice...
Though it would be nice if they released translated ones as well x\
AND more manga other than Love Hina and Negima in the future...

Hahaha, it's funny to see Akamatsu joking about Kumeta, two great manga authors in my opinion.

Million downloads in just three days. Either Love Hina is even more popular than I thought or maybe just many people REALLY want this thing to work.

Good. With this business model coming up, acceptance for downloading manga will rise and soon all of my favourite manga will be up. Everything's going according to plan

Akamatsu, Kumeta and Hata Kenjirou (Hayate no Gotoku) crack jokes at each other like this every once in a while. They're friends.

My kingdom for a bottle of plum juice!
