Ichijinsha, a Japanese publisher, and Pixiv, an online platform for artists, are joining forces to produce a new electronic magazine entitled comic POOL, which will debut on November 06, 2015. The goal of the magazine is to nurture up-and-coming manga artists by highlighting their work and promoting it to more casual online manga fans.
Six popular Pixiv manga series, including Wotaku ni Koi ha Muzukashii ("Love is Tough for Otaku") and Ojisan and Marshmallow, will be featured in the premiere issue of comic POOL. The magazine will be published semimonthly, with updates on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month.
