Ken Akamatsu who is an author of “Love Hina” and “Negima! Magister Negi Magi” has opened manga’s on-line library J Comi β version. Now he has started to distribute the manga “Love Hina” the whole volumes in J Comi as a test!!
Because I introduced J Comi before, please check the more detailed information of it. J Comi β version opened from 26th November.
He is measuring the number of downloads and the effect of the advertisement inserted in the manga as this βversion’s test. Right above on the page the number of downloads is showed. Now 2:00 on 29th February Japan time, the contents have already downloaded about 1,350,000 times.
The contents(“Love Hina vol.1-14) are placed left on the page. From here we can go to the page to download them.
This is a page to download the vol.2. We can choose to download the PDF of high resolution version or light resolution version.
Though the all contents are regrettably written in Japanese, they can be read through PC, iPhone, iPad, android, Kindle and so on because they are PDF files.
Ken Akamatsu seems be going to decided whether he will continue this J Comi or not and how he manage it, depending on the result of this test. Moreover, he seems aim that he will distribute not only official manga but also Dojinshi in future.
