Aiming for Worldwide Development of Web Manga
MangaGet aims for worldwide development of web manga. In this exhibition, we will demonstrate MangaGet and conduct negotiations with localization partners for MangaGet.
Although there have been attempts to deliver Japanese manga as electronic books abroad, manga remain a one-way delivery from Japan, and in addition, it cannot be said that attempts to deliver manga other than adult contents are successful. MangaGet is aiming to create an environment in which manga artists all over the world can deliver wholesome manga to manga fans throughout the world.
Period: February 27, 2012 - March 1, 2012
