Manga Planet turns two today!

Manga Planet turns two today! Thank you everyone for your support!

Here is a short message from our President, Hiroki Kurihara:

Thanks to your support, Manga Planet is able to celebrate its second anniversary today, November 18, 2021.

Manga Planet’s mission is to offer more Japanese manga, including old favorites, in ways and at prices that are as accessible to you as possible. And what great timing to receive many popular works from Kodansha. Moreover, we are currently in the midst of negotiations with various other publishers as well.

It is said that in a single year, there are more than 10,000 comics published in Japan. What we can offer is only a mere portion of that number, but we hope that by continuing to work hard to provide an array of excellent manga, we can keep bringing you something to look forward to in your daily life.

We hope that you continue enjoying all of the many different manga on Manga Planet.

ー Hiroki Kurihara, President and Board Member


We hope for your continued support for Manga Planet!
