Love Hina Mangaka Opens Free to download manga site for free

Izzat Chamo at the top?

Akamatsu Ken, creator of the all famous Love Hina and Magister Negi Magi is starting a free manga download website name 'J-Comi'. What this site will provide are manly out-of-print mangas in downloadable pdf format and web-viewer, legally at that, and Love Hina will be its first release.

J-Comi will be having a beta test in about a weeks time, in November 26, and therefore the link above will connect you to a 'coming soon' page for now. But we have to salute Akamatsu-sensei for such a brilliant idea! Though he did mention he have this feeling that he is somehow upsetting the manga industry, but I think he's making a big change in how manga will be viewed in the future.

One key features of the site is that when a mangaka upload a zip file of manga, the site will automatically insert ads and convert it to pdf. Also, seeing that it's free, it should be DRM free, which is a big thumbs up to anybody. I'm looking forward to what it has to offer.
