I guess that's good news. I mean, I don't find anything that they have interesting, or if I did, I wouldn't pay to read it if I could help it, so this doesn't really apply to me...

But I'm sure this news has made someone's day. ^^V

I'm not sure I get the point of this... how much money goes to the mangaka and how much goes to the website? Do they only have official scanlations? If so why wouldn't I just buy the physical copy?

I must be missing something.


Agreed, if I were to pay for reading online, I might as well get the physical copy...

I very much prefer buying the physical copies than digital. The fact that me and my friend are too lazy to buy Awkward Silence from JMANGA, but are so hyped about buying the physical copy from SubLime.

Having the digital copy doesn't seem as valuable as having it in paperback.

I just tried to read some previews (at least 20) on the site and not one of them was available for my region. What's the point in making the site accessible worldwide if the titles aren't?


I can't even klick on the preview link T.T

I'm not sure if you guys know this but the majority of uploaded manga they have hasn't been scanned yet so you guys can only read most of those only on that site because it isn't available anywhere else

They don't really have anything that piques my interest so I'll stick with free instead.

I'll stick to the other manga websites.

I'll subscribe if they continue Hyakki Yakoushou

And why is their yaoi more expensive than DMG's? *sadface*

Read the news yesterday or so, didn't get the layout, what's with the point system?


The points is how you pay for the manga... You buy points, and then redeem points on the titles you want.

Ehhh. Someone explain. How much does one point get you and what is its equivalent in money.


Basically 100 points is $1

If you sign up now for $10 you get 1,000 points plus 500 points as a bonus.

It looks like they are having some sort of sale since I checked a couple titles and each volume is 499 points. If you get the $10 plan you can buy 2 volumes of any manga.

Reading manga online takes off better if it ships off occasional free stuff, similar to what shonen jump alpha is doing and still giving out yugioh cards in its subscription(which sometimes, the yugioh card in the issue itself is worth more than the actual issue).

My thoughts exactly.
If I want to PAY for manga - I buy a tangible copy. Why would I pay for something I can get for free? No incentive.

I prefer buying paperbacks.
