In Japan, Shogakukan has released an iPhone application that allows you to download popular Shounen Sunday titles on your iPhone with an iPad version in the works! "Wooooot!" is what I'd like to say, however, their price range needs a SEVERE amount of tweaking.
They're thinking 450
yen is appropriate for titles like "Case Closed" (otherwise known as "Detective Conan"),"Urusei Yatsura", "Major" and "Ushio to Tora." These titles can all be found at used book stores for 100 yen a volume or perhaps even less through set packs and can be bought new for 440 yen
or less. 2ch considers
this to be a HUGE ripoff and wonders if they mistakenly wrote 450 yen, but actually meant 45 yen. We'd however, like to ask you all: What price do you consider to be reasonable for a publisher to charge for digital volumes of manga?
Say, if a popular series you read was available, what would be your limit?Source
