    I think for most doujinka its a kind of code of honor? Like, they rarely reprint doujinshi. Any doujinshi you find physically is something that was sold in a comic convention booth first, then probably resold to a secondhand bookshop, and etc. The print numbers for doujinshi are incredibly low, which is why popular circles can get sold out very quickly.

    I think most doujinka also don't want to attract unnecessary attention, this is why they hate it when their work is scanned or pirated.

    Yep, I understand that it's unlikely for (most) Doujinka to reprint their works; First they're bound by the ethical codes, second is that they're not necessarily have the financial capability to do that. That's why I personally believe that banning creative works from the fans are somewhat ineffective, but hey, I'm completely seeing it from one-dimensional point of view, so there must be another reasons why an Author/publisher request such prohibition.

    In terms of why a mangaka/publisher would propose an otherwise ineffective ban, I think it all has to do with enforcing copyright on their characters and series. The copyright of fan arts sent to a tankobon corner become the publisher's even if the artist is only 10 years old.

    True, Comiket is a public event, but it's also simultaneously a private gathering since everyone there who is selling doujinshi is going under a pseudonym. It's hard to figure out what the doujinka's real name is or where they are from unless you ask.

    Excellent news for Hayao Miyasaki's fan base: he is said to be working on a new samurai-themed manga comic set in Japan's "Warring States" period: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...-samurai-manga

    Lawson will be launching a series of Shingeki no Kyojin themed Christmas campaigns, starting with a flyer of Shingeki characters delivering cake and presents:



    Starting on December 10th, customers who buy three packs of Lipovitan D energy drinks will receive Shingeki no Kyojin glasses depicting either Eren, Mikasa, or Levi. More promotions will be announced next week.

    I can't at the poster. Shingeki is as serious in tone as it can get, but non-readers/watchers will have a misunderstanding from the Christmas poster. (Armin's face... lmao)

    I know there is a Lawson nearby, and I really wish the promotion be available outside Japan and yeah, Armin's face looks goofy in that picture.

    This isn't Lawson's first campaign, or goofy poster. Over the summer they offered key chains, and other gifts, to anyone who purchased Shingeki themed snacks.

    DeNA launched an app allowing users in 140 countries and regions to read 28 manga titles for free.
    This is Google Play link. There's also an iPhone app but I didn't look that one up.

    I don't think it's very smart to build apps for every little service and force a certain reader upon users but any new legit manga publishing on modern hardware is welcome.

    The DeNa app is really convenient and I like it constantly does push a message on the phones top bar that a manga has been updated that day. Compared to Crunchyroll manga and even viz manga is really good at letting us know when stuff is up, and the content is actually nice and varied. Im curious when more series will be added. Its Hakkenden one is my favorite.
