Yoshiaki Koga disclosed some future plans that they are planning to bring manga to the Indian market legally. They are collaborating with manga planet to bring digital manga to India. In the interview, they said that manga available in India legally are very limited, and very costly. These imported mangas are so costly that the audience they are meant for can’t even by them even if they want to. So they want to bring digital manga for Indian fans to read legally and at affordable prices. Kodansha wants Japanese manga to be widely accessible to Indian fans. That’s why they want to become biggest manga source for Indians. And they are planning to bring 2500 manga legally to India.
They think that artists from Japan don’t even know that there are so many fans in India who love their work. And they want to do something for such artists and their fanbase. So, they want to execute the plan before March 2021 i.e. before Holi. Hope this collaboration will be a success and they’ll continue to spread the awesome content in India. They also plan to produce some mangas especially for the Indian audience. Yes, India exclusive content. That’ll be more than a dream come true.
