Company had previously announced April 2023 launch date

Manga Planet India announced on Facebook on Friday that it is postponing its launch to the end of 2023 due to "technical reasons." The company will announce a new launch date at a later time.


Manga Planet India, Kodansha, and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) collaborated on the Manga Shakti Project in January. The company had a booth at the Mumbai Comic Con 2023 event and had previously announced an April 2023 launch date.

The Super Sugoii Con virtual event hosted Manga Planet's President Hiroki Kurihara, Editor-in-Chief Emma Hanashiro, and Producer Gladys Angala in September 2020.

Manga Planet is a manga subscription service that launched in November 2019 and offers subscribers access to English-translated manga. The company is working with publishers Bunkasha Publishing Co., Ltd.; Kaiohsha Publishing Co., Ltd.; Wani Books Co., Ltd.; Tokuma Shoten Publishing Co., Ltd.; Shodensha Publishing Co., Ltd.; Home-sha, Starts Publishing Corporation, K.K. HarperCollins Japan, and MugenUp Inc. The company is also working with individual artists such as Masaya Hokazono.

Manga Planet started as a joint project between Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. and Fantasista, Inc. in 2012. The companies' goal with Manga Planet is to "[bring] new manga to fans from all over the world and support artists and the industry."
