Launch Panel Liveblog

This panel, chaired by the various representatives from major Japanese manga publishers, introduced the online manga reading service to the public.  It’s suppose to compete with the scanslation sites by offering not just the ability to read manga online but also provide exclusive interviews, articles, and other content along with social networking integration that others don’t provide.

This liveblog is a bit spotty because the Wifi access was inconsistent. I ended up tweeting the panel from my phone, which is what is embedded below.
