The new online portal JManga was launched today by the Japan’s Digital Comic Association, a coalition of 39 Japanese publishers. This site is a place for The companies to generate excitement for their products, which they predominately do by allowing fans to read many of the titles online, having creators interviews, and hosting a forum where your question about a given manga might be answered by the person who wrote or drew it. This site has been in closed Beta for a month or three now while they worked the bugs out, and tweaked they layout and features. With that many digital publishers signed on I expect this site will be the go-to place for all things Manga. Many of these groups already have their own Manga sites and apps, such as VIZ Manga, while others do not, but by banding together they will have the best chance of reaching their target market.
