Browser and app-based subscription manga service launched on November 01, 2015
The eBook Japan Initiative, in cooperation with Elex Media Komputindo and m&c!, has launched a new digital distribution platform for Indonesia called MangaMon.
The web browser and smart phone app-based service provides a new venue for residents of Indonesia to download officially licensed and translated manga. MangaMon also provides news on trends in Japanese pop culture & entertainment as well as promoting local events that would be of interest to Indonesian otaku, such as cosplay and illustration contests.
