Site holds translation contest for Young-kun 4-panel manga excerpt

JManga, a platform for reading legal manga online, added the first volume of Takao Saito's (Golgo 13) Doll The Hotel Detective and Pink Aomata's (Fight!!) Tenkaichi!! manga on Tuesday. Both manga are currently available to purchase and offer a free preview.

JManga has already published Saito's Devil King, Dingo, Kitty Hawker, Survival: Another Story, The Larceny Log of Zampei the Cloud Snatcher, Muyonosuke, Hawking and Golgo 13 manga. Aomata's Fight!! manga inspired the 1993 OVA Fight!! Spirit of the Sword, which Media Blasters released in 2001.

JManga also announced on Tuesday that it is holding a translation contest. Fans can submit an English translation of an excerpt from the Muto Masaya's Young-kun four-panel manga and submit it to the site by February 14. Translator William Flanagan will choose the winners of the contest, and the winners will receive the digital version of Young-kun volume 1 along with 1000 points to use on JManga. The website also posted an interview with Flanagan.

JManga launched on August 17 with numerous titles never before available in the United States, some of which have become available for purchase. The site offered 29 new titles by August 30 and listed two more titles in September, six more manga in October, two more titles in November, three more titles in December, and one more title last week.
