I hope manga fans overseas can enjoy our Libraries with the new plan during the holiday season.”
There are currently over 600 officially licensed Japanese manga titles between both the Manga Planet and futekiya Libraries. With the new plan, fans can have unlimited access to either the Manga Planet or futekiya Library for seven days.
