Akamatsu Ken held a press conference with Horie Yui and announced that he will officially launch J-Comi service on January 10th 2011. Love Hina manga has been downloaded 1.7 million times in a week and 9% of the readers clicked the advertisement banners. Akamatsu said Shueisha (Shonen Jump) and Kodansha (Shonen Magazine) will cooperate with J-Comi.

Upcoming titles of the second beta test
a manga serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump in 2007
an one-shot by Shinjou Mayu
"Kotsujiko Kanteinin Tamaki Rinichiro" (1996 - 2003, Super Jump)

From the second beta test to be held this month, companies will pay for the advertisements and the authors will receive all the revenues except the commissions paid to the PR agency.

Horie Yui has nothing to do with the manga though. I'm confused.

Hope this expands to an English translated site.
Off-topic, I just realized "an one-shot" sounds awkward.

She voiced Naru in the anime, I'm sure they're friends.

Hope more mangakas get on this I just went there and clicked every ad I found and intend on doing so every day I can to repay for all the mangas I read.

Too bad I don't know how to read JAP or I would have really enjoyed it.

I Approve.

Looks like this may just turn into a new business model. Then instead of publishing companies hunting downloaders and scanlators they may just invite them on board, seeing as some scans are in better English than the official ones

fuck yeah....Yui Horie xD

lol...Love Hina is actually making some noise this month...
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.

Hopefully it will generate a lot of revenue so that it will be a viable solution for mangakas.
