Bandai Entertainment Launches Manga Website

Bandai Entertainment Launches Manga Website

Announced via their Twitter account this afternoon, Bandai Entertainment has officially launched a website dedicated solely to their manga releases: Manga Bandai Entertainment.

“It’s long overdue, but our plan is to have this be the destination on the latest news and release information for our publishing lineup. …And there’s going to be plenty more to talk about, so check back for news updates and maybe even some surprise previews!”

Thus far the site has most of the key things that make me a happy web-surfing manga consumer, such as detailed individual volume information and manga previews. However the site itself is still having some growing pains that will cause visitors a few visual hiccups here and there. But not a bad start and it’s great to see Bandai giving their books some extra attention.

One thing a clear catelouge of their books has shown me however is that I’ve yet to read anything they’ve released. So in honour of their newly launched manga-centric site, I’m looking for reader suggestions: what is your recommendation for a Bandai manga series worth picking up? Gurren Lagann? Eureka Seven? The doey-eyed Lucky Star? Let me know what you think and I’ll head out on the hunt for my first Bandai Entertainment read!

    I would suggest Gurren Lagann mostly because I would be interested in your opinion of it.

      Alrighty then, Gurren Lagann it is for my first! Conveniently my friend owns a copy so I shall move it up my to-read stack. Thanks for the suggestion ^^

  2. Code Geass: Lelouche of the Rebellion. Read 2 volumes so far, and I've really liked it. So need to catch up though…

      There're several different series – do you need to read one before the others? Lelouche of the Rebellion looks like the first from what I can gather but I'm not sure. I've always wanted to read some of it though, the anime having been such a big hit, so I'd love to know where to start. Knowing you enjoyed the manga-version definitely makes me more eager too :)

    I really enjoyed The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. And it's just one volume, so your risk is limited!
