In an attempt to become the Crunchyroll of published works, JManga has added another sizable feather to its cap: Kodansha will list a number of their series on the site, with more to come down the line.
As of now, they've added School Rumble, Code Breaker, Princess Ressurection, Pumpkin Scissors, Pastel, and The Yagyu Ninja Scrolls.
It certainly beats all the Harlequin romance titles that they've got listed. But I guess when a publisher opens their vaults to you, you can't be all that choosy. The digital volumes of these titles are all priced at $4.99, which means that it's a lower barrier to entry on titles that haven't made it to print in the US as of yet. This would be a perfect opportunity for Kodansha to test the waters with some of its newer or hard-to-sell properties, such as Saint Young Men and Space Brothers.
