http://storage.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/gl4_prvw.jpg In order to better facilitate their growing list of manga licenses, Bandai Entertainment have launched a dedicated manga portal, separate from their main website.

 

"We have some exciting releases this month such as Lucky Star Vol. 4, Gurren Lagann Vol. 4, Gundam 00F Vol. 2, and Code Geass Nunnally Vol. 4, all of which are previewed on the site. Check back frequently for more updates and release information,” Robert Napton, marketing director at Bandai Entertainment entertainment stated in a press release the company recently sent out. Napton is reportedly a great proponent of Bandai’s manga line.

 

Given that publishers like Viz, Dark Horse, Del Rey and Tokyopop have a significant head start on Bandai in the manga sector, it’ll be interesting to see how Bandai Entertainment play catch up in the coming years. It strikes one as odd that Bandai Entertainment aren’t making better use of their organization’s ties to the games community.

    Man, I see that their manga website is just as poorly designed as their anime website. Well, maybe it’s not as bad.

    Again, Bandai has proven that they have no frakking clue what the hell they’re doing.
