Hirano Aya is bigger than the manga revolution (on MAL, at least). Go figure.

That dude is either suffering from a mental breakdown or he is a visionary. Only time will tell.

How very interesting. I wonder what this will mean for the future of manga... especially if he manages to pull it off.

I was thinking of posting this in the additional news section of the weekly manga ranking but there happens quite a big uproar here in Japan over this news. It's indeed an unprecedented decision that a mangaka publishes an ongoing series online and the publishers are surely frightened.
