From the press release:
Digital Manga, one of the manga industry’s most unique and creative publishers, is proud to announce its digital distribution expansion on to Kobo books— http://www.kobobooks.com/ —a global eReading service, providing readers with a global alternative to the Amazon Kindle. Kobo have distributing partners with Canada’s Chapters Indigo, Borders US & AU, Australia’s Angus & Robertson, and New Zealand’s Whitcoulls ebookstore storefronts which are powered by Kobo.
Digital Manga has so far launched over 90 titles from their DMP, Juné, and 801 Mediaimprints into the Kobo ebookstore and their partners, with more to follow in the coming weeks and months, including popular manga titles like Vampire Hunter D and Il Gatto Sul G, along with other such titles as The Color of Love and The Selfish Demon King, which were blocked out of the Amazon Kindle store recently.
Digital Manga believes this new digital distribution channel can provide a new alternative for non-Kindle e-reading device owners. Kobo not only has their own dedicated eReading device, but you can also access their storefront and its partners, through any smart, tablet, e-readers, PC or Mac via downloadable app. This opens the market up to a whole new customer base with a broader range of devices.
Average pricing for most DMP titles is at $7.95 downloaded to your device. You can find a direct listing of current available Digital Manga titles in the Kobo ebook store here:http://www.junemanga.com/digitaledition/
