BLU Titles Available for Purchase at eManga

BLU Manga on eManga
As of today Tokyopop and Digital Manga are collaboration buddies and offering a number of Tokyopop’s  BLU boys’ love titles over on Digital Manga’s digital eManga website. You can check out the press release for the details.

There are a bunch of things about this that makes me happy – 1) Manga publishers working together is awesome. 2) BLU titles, which are some of the most expensive out there, are only $5.99 in full on eManga. 3) There’re even a couple of not-yet-in-print titles up there for the extra eager. 4) Even those like me who aren’t too keen on the reading-comics-on-screen option can still find this useful with the Sample feature which makes good use of eManga’s smooth software to test out some titles before buying.

    I noticed that Digital Manga has been show eManga a little bit more love lately. I do not mind reading the titles online and since I am transportation challenged I can get titles easier. Barnes and Noble and Borders are not easy to get to and I do not like waiting for the books to come in the mail.

    eManga's smooth software is right ~ its the only online manga reader that I've test driven that works well on a netbook. Its the panel by panel mode that does it … when the panel is too big to fit in the current zoom, it pans across the panel in a very natural way (seems to be driven by the sequence of the text bubbles).

    If only their smooth software could be combined with the kind of titles I wanted to read (sigh).

    • I really like eManga's program for those reasons as well, very smooth transitions and good panel zooming. The only thing that makes me sad is that it's Flash based so I can't use it on my iPhone (to my knowledge anyway – I tried and alas it failed).

    This makes me really happy. I love emanga.com and there are a lot of Blu manga I've been wanting to check out.

    OMG AWESOME :) I'm so glad to hear this. I'm more apt to purchase a larger variety of Blu and Tokyopop manga online than actual books, if the price is right – especially since my physical shelf space is so limited now. And $5.99 sounds like a pretty good price compared to the book retail cost.
