Woah... Times are changing
I'm so grateful for this omg
I can't believe this wasn't a thing before?
Finally! This might be tough on smaller printing companies, though...
I'm guessing these will all be original though? Otherwise copyright is gonna be an issue
Woah, the future is here!! I wonder if this will make it easier for fans abroad to buy doujinshi?
I hope so! It really is surprising that it's only just happening, though!
