    Re: Kodansha and Crunchyroll to Simulpub 12 Series to 170 Countries

    Great Move!
    Among 170 countries Brazil must be there, I guess.
    Waiting for more informations, like cost. If it have in Brazil, I really would like to pay for this.
    With these titles it is already "must subscribe".

    The cost will be US $4.99 per month.

    I've read that is still unknown if South America will be included in these 170 countries D: anyways, good news, i just hope they let the scanlations keep doing their work as usual.

    170 countries is like 80% of the countries in the world, it's quite impossible that Kodansha didn't consider South America among these 170 countries.
    I don't know if all of them will be there, but at least some of them will be.
    Cheering for Brazil of course, but good luck for everyone. XD

    Looks like Japan, China, France, Germany, and Italy aren't in the list.

    Shit, if I can get a thing for this along with Crunchyroll's anime service in one then I honestly might start considering paying for Crunchyroll.

    At ANN news they said that the service will have 12 titles released in October 30th with the catalog expading to over 50 titles by next summer. Probably these you said are going to be included.

    Going by the ANN article, it appears to be a separate thing, not covered by anime membership. This would be $4.99 a month. Still pretty cheap though, and they say you can read catalog titles, so maybe that means back chapters.

    Maybe he refers to obtain the mangas per volumes, but if you can read past chapters this isn't a problem, i think...

    I think he means that since there's an official release, some online readers and scanlating groups will stop hosting the chapters.

    Mayhe he wants an option to be able to buy the individual volumes digitally, which would be nice. I guess we just have to wait until Wednesday for more details.

    I kinda liked this since if this works out well and I think with this many countries it will; this maybe the gateway for the other magazines to follow suit and although it may end fansub tradition it might at least give managaka's more of a cushion to create and publish. Moreover we will also have more of a say in the industry even thou most of us are outside of japan. No1 will want to cancel something if it makes money..... (this last part will probably take some time.)
