Two magazines died, not the publisher. Hakusensha, the magazine's publishing company is still alive and kicking.

And it shouldn't affect MAL whatsoever, even if these manga get published digitally online, they are still being published under the publishing company and eventually will get a volume release, unlike webtoons.

volume buying will eventually fall as well, japan may be slow and stupid but that can't be forever. most of the money is online, peeps are losing money if they still want to go physical.

Digital serialization is the way to go.


You beat me to it, digital is the future for manga and light novels. It's time these publisher adapt, so they won't die off all of a sudden.


Publishers won't die. It's not easy for a company to go bankrupt after all, even more when those are really big ones with such market share

Some magazines will live as digital if they're not profitable but not all of them
