MangaPlus is one example, but it's not the only one, given the birth of manga up! by SquareEnix.

Square Enix is ​​not only a video game house, but has also been active in the manga area with some magazines for years. His most famous titles include Fullmetal Alchemist, Soul Eater, Kakegurui and many others, some of which are also active and successful in the current panorama. These and many other series will be brought to life with Manga Up! Global or the English version of the digital magazine.

But at the moment there are also titles like the ones mentioned above Yomi no Tsugaialso by Hiromu Arakawa, My Clueless First Friend by Taku Kawamura, The Case Study of Vanitas, Toilet-Bound Hanako-kun, I diari della apziale, Horimiya and still others. The site offers both a paid and free reading system with a limited number of chapters to read each day. Using some promotions and in-app funds, users can read their favorite manga.

Launched in Japan in 2017, the app then continues to evolve, with Kodansha also seeming to have something in mind.
