This is what I've been waiting for. I was not about to purchase digital manga, so I was disappointed with the initial offering. Unlimited for $5.99 is what I wanted and will definitely be getting this. Can't ask for more, unless the manga offered is all terrible. We shall see. Razz

Que the fanboys.

That said, how long are we going to have to wait until they start publishing chapters that haven't been collected into a tank yet?

Definitely. The yuri titles have been some of JManga's most successful titles, which isn't surprising since the US yuri market is for the most part just below the size needed to sustain print publication, so it is meeting pent up demand.

Given even a chapter a week, it shouldn't be too long until they start publishing chapters that haven't been collected into a JManga volume.

However, how soon before they they are releasing chapters before the tankoubon is published in Japan ... and how many ever reach that point ... likely depends on how successful the site is. Unlike anime, rights are often unbundled in manga publishing, so in persuading both the publisher and the manga-ka to cater to international digital distribution in advance of domestic tankoubon collection, it wouldn't be surprising if money talks and bullshit walks.

They haven't published Morita-san wa Mukuchi 5 on JManga just yet, so they're already pushing stuff on JManga7 that's unavailable on the parent site(thus making sure regulars also subscribe to the new one).
