OSAKA, Japan (December 14, 2021) -- NTT Solmare Corp announced its plans to launch MangaPlaza, a digital manga store offering U.S. manga fans access to the largest digital contents library from a broad range of Japanese publishers including major ones such as Kodansha and original titles without previous English releases. MangaPlaza's storefront offers an extensive list of titles covering a variety of genres such as action-adventure, romance, comedy, drama, sci-fi/fantasy, and LGBTQA+
Users are offered the ability to access their favorite titles at their desired pace of reading through MangaPlaza’s new service. For a monthly fee, users are offered unlimited access to around 10,000 content or they can purchase individual content without a subscription for a nominal fee and most available titles in the library offer one content for free.
The MangaPlaza trial page will launch a pre-registration campaign starting Monday, January 24, 2022 where fans can initially access up to 72 hit manga titles (236 content) for free.
Starting today, MangaPlaza will begin streaming content mostly exclusive to their platform on their official Youtube channel for free.
