MyAnimeList.net, a website that serves as an anime community as well as a way to track the anime and manga that you watch/read, has partnered with VIZ Media and Kodansha Comics to offer select titles digitally. The store launched back on March 8 but was only available in Canada. The store has now become available in the United States and the United Kingdom. MyAnimeList offers over 200 digital titles from both publishers and has stated that there will be more titles coming the future.
A list of countries has been provided via the site’s FAQ section. Those additional countries include:
- The Netherlands
- New Zealand
- Czech Republic
DeNA, the owners of MyAnimeList, continue to look for ways to grow the site. They previously purchased Anime Consortium Japan and used their Daisuki streaming service to embed episodes of anime into the site; however, Daisuki ceased operations back in 2016, losing out to other companies such as FUNimation, Netflix, Anime Strike and Crunchyroll. To supplement this, MyAnimeList added anime from Crunchyroll as well as Hulu.
