Manga Worth Reading July 2014

I mean, if we’re doing an anime worth watching each month, it only makes sense we do a manga worth reading as well right?

So this is ultimately the feature of dreams. Manga is vast, and there’s certainly a lot of it to consume, whether it’s published in your country, or someone’s fan translating that one title no one will know about until it gets an anime, or you happen to find an out of print title that deserves some recognition somehow. So that’s what this is for: to share some of that with us! It better be good though! And be respectful of links. Or something like that.

Viewster Steps Into The Anime Streaming Service Game

Viewster

One thing that sparked me to finally tackle yesterday’s anime you can watch legally list was learning about Viewster, a streaming service that I had no idea about. There’s a reason for that. The site started streaming anime in 2013, and this summer they’re finally doing their first simulcasts for the European market. But I don’t know enough about them, their plans regarding anime (even if it’s not my market for the most part), and anything else regarding it.

So I emailed over questions to Viewster, and got answers from the Director of Content and Productions at Viewster, Robert Franke.
