Yay! One manga on the Kindle! Now if only they can expand that into every manga ever printed in the US, and add in every Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Murder Mystery and Historical novel ever made, I would actually buy a Kindle...

Has anyone actually managed to find what they were looking for on the Kindle (not college textbooks and not the classics).

Man, they really went all the way in moe-fying the PS3. I'm guessing that's Wii-chan on the right and 360-tan on the left?

ps three-san in English? Interesting.

Though I think the character designs are lacking. With everything being turned into a moe girl these days, I've seen a lot better designs for console girls elsewhere. As the commenter above said, the green hair girl looks like she should be the XBOX360 and the childish pigtailed girl looks like she should be the Wii, but they are actually the other way around. The only girl who looks even kind of related to the console she represents is PS Three-san, but that's only because she has a giant controller strapped to her head. Totally unimaginative designs. Art is kind of bleh too. Most of the jokes don't make any sense and seem to have been translated in a heavily localized way that somehow makes even less sense, so it will be interesting to see where the English iPhone presence takes this series.

Original comic is here, for the curious:

They picked a great tittle to start this off. I hope more manga gets transferred into digital form like this. I have been wanting this for a long time now Good to see Vampire hunter D alive and well.
