So what if manga went digital? I mean what if publisher's stopped printing manga and sold it digitally over the internet. What could you all see as the pros and cons?

pros uses less paper, cons easier for people to take that digital copy make another couple hundred or so and give it to people who don't wanna pay for their own.

pro - takes up less room
con - if your computer or whatever crashes, you loose it all, and there is no guarantee that you won't have to buy it all over again.

Yes, please. Thanks for asking. This is how the entire north American continent gets its manga anyway.

So, Shinji... get with it already. There's a hueg hole in the market now. Openmanga is total vaporware, and you have a personal army of weeaboos who actually would fork over the cash to get their manga fix. You're the perfect guy for the job; nobody is more experienced with both wrangling licensing and online distribution. Take a look around, Shinji, you're the guy.

Actually books are far better than digital content. I wouldn't buy digital content unless I already had the physical book. I'm pretty much OCD when it comes to manga. I keep them in new condition and I don't let anyone borrow them. I wouldn't like digital content, the ride to the bookstore on release day is fun. Theres no market for digital copies of manga, its pretty lame. Read the scans, buy the books when they become available.

It would mean less paper and you won't have to walk to the store or wait for ebay to send it!
