Kodansha Discontinues English Site

posted on by Scott Green
Manga publishing company Kodansah will be closing their English on April 15th.

From the web site:

We are very sorry to inform you that, as of April 15,, which was launched on December 12, 2000 for the purpose of making available information on Kodansha's manga publications, will no longer be accessible.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has visited our site and to apologize for this inconvenience and for not being able to develop an online shop.

It is our sincere hope that you will continue to visit our site until April 15.

Thanks again.


Speculation is that this move coinsides with the end of distrobution of bilingual manga outside Japan.
