From JManga: “Just got the confirmation!! Thanks to all of your support… www.jmanga.com IS NOW GLOBAL!!!!! WE DID IT!!!!!”
They sound kinda happy about it. ^_^
I’ll pass along more info as I get it, but the upshot is – now all you non-North American Yuri fans can get Yuri manga on JManga, too. ^_^
Here’s my “I told you so”: Every single day, we’re all faced with choices. We can choose to find something positive to think, to do, to feel, or we can find something negative to think, to do, to feel. I’ve talked a lot about how anime/manga fans are so angry all the time – angry well out of proportion to the fact that this is comics and cartoons we’re talking about here. They get angry at companies for not licensing titles and for licensing titles. They get angry when companies make them use one format…or give them options. Fans spend a ridiculous amount of time saying how “no one listens to them” when all the companies are listening – and many of them are responding – but may or may not be able to do a thing just at this moment.
As a wise men said about another topic completely: Not being able to have everything your way all the time is not an indication of being persecuted.
We should all pin this up on a wall we look at often. ^_^
So, we all expressed desire for a doable thing, all of us – you, me, people from around the globe – and look, it happened! You Made A Positive Change. Thank you all for helping.
This is the first step towards a totally new paradigm for anime and manga; a non-region-locked information world. This should be pretty exciting. ^_^
