This is really cool. How are they monetizing this though...? No subscription or ads? Or maybe they're just pushing their weaker titles to create demand for book releases?

Yeah, I can see this as a test to see if a series has potential for actual publishing. I'll check this out for sure.

The app has grayed out links to buy the manga, but I didn't see any that were actually linked yet.
