This is to be expected.

Manga, while more popular than ever before, is still a niche market. Digital manga is even more of a niche, and then adding a niche social aspect to it, and you can see why there weren't enough users to warrant keeping it running.

This is literally the first I've heard of this service. They certainly didn't do a very good job of marketing it.

Same here, I don't think their marketing was up to snuff.

So, no surprise then that they don't make it.
