Remember Digital Manga Guild? If you do not, it’s business model was basically to give scanlators a job and release manga series officially through legal channels. The publishing firm wins and scanlators also win by taking a cut from each sale.
Now that we’ve caught up, it seems like the Guild has assigned the first three series that will eventually be released for purchase. The titles are yaoi manga Only The Flower Knows by Rihito Takarai, The Faithful Dog Waits for Flowers by Mario Yamada, and Tired of Waiting for Love by Saki Aida/Yugi Yamada. More titles will be announced at Anime Expo this coming Saturday. Titles will most likely be yaoi before moving on to more popular mainstream genre’s.
It yet unknown what the price points will be for each issue but releases will be digital and if popular, will be made available in print format. If you are interested in making a buck while scanlating, sign up at the Digital Manga Guild. Experience + Money = Win.
