    Digital growth appears to be slowing.

    There's quite a bit to be said about certain companies though.

    Good for manga, I think at least for viz, digital manga sales is growing.

    Didnt know western comics had a digital presence though.

    Awesome.

    This is an interesting look at the future of manga in the U.S. There's a lot of work to be done still.

    Yen Press is moving forward with Square Enix to release their manga in English around the world.

    Quote Quote:
    So what exactly does this mean for all you crazy, wonderful manga fans out there? No matter where you are in the world, as long as you have access to the Internet and e-tailers, you’ll be able to buy official English-language ebook editions of around 175 Square Enix titles! On top of that, future volumes of those series will release simultaneously in print AND digital!

    Additionally Secret! will be part of this initiative.

    Quote Quote:
    Hold onto your Soul hats and bunny heads, ‘cos we’re launching a simultaneous serialization program with Square Enix, starting off with our old friend Soul Eater NOT! and Yoshiki Tonogai’s creepy new survival horror series complete with scary rabbits, Secret! So on April 8, you’ll be able to individually purchase all the chapters that haven’t yet been collected and published in volume format for both of these series. And on April 14, you’ll be able to buy the latest chapter of each series in English on whatever device you choose from anywhere in the world (with an internet connection, of course)!

    Why don't you post in the US thread? That one is practically obsolete now, since nothing goes there.

    Ahh there we go.

    Another US manga publisher enters the stage to address the Wanimagazine Hentai ero manga scene

    Quote Quote:
    Introducing, FAKKU Books!

    When I created FAKKU seven years ago I never thought it would grow into the massive community that it has. I never thought we would be invited to speak at conventions in front of thousands of people. I never thought someone would draw porn of me in a horse head mask having sex with our mascot. And now I am excited to share the next big thing that I never thought would happen, starting today FAKKU is an official manga publisher.

    We have entered into an exclusive partnership with Wanimagazine to release their catalog of hentai tankōbons and magazines in English. Tankōbons are the compiled works of an artist into a completed manga, specifically, it is the compilation of various individual chapters and it’s basically what you’ve been reading on FAKKU this whole time. We will be publishing them as both physical books and digital releases under the FAKKU name. These books will be coming directly from us; we will be handling the translation, editing, and everything else about the release (so you know it’s going to be awesome). I couldn't be more excited and proud that FAKKU is a part of something this big.

    Oh, did I forget to mention that all of our releases will be completely uncensored? No more black bars. No more mosaics. And these won't be redraws, these are the original uncensored versions coming directly from the artists.
    fakku.net but the site is pretty nsfw
