Digital Manga Inc. Announces DMG Payment Restructuring and Updated Release Schedule

Digital Manga Publishing announced at its Anime Expo 2015 panel that it is restructuring its Digital Manga Guild to pay localizers upfront as freelancers. The previous system was a revenue share, in which workers were paid based on the success of the manga they were assigned.

The Digital Manga Guild allows translators, editors, and letterers with no experience in the manga industry to work on Digital Manga Publishing titles. The manga are published on emanga.com.

Digital Manga Publishing also announced an updated release schedule with the following titles:

  • A Waltz in the Clinic by Makoto Tateno in September 2015
  • Even So, I Will Love You Tenderly by Kou Yoneda in October 2015
  • The Tyrant Falls in Love Volume 9 by Hinako Takanaga in November 2015
  • I’ve Seen It All Volume 3 by Shoko Takaku in January 2016
  • As Many As There Are Stars in February 2016 (tentative)
  • ZE Volume 11 by Yuki Shimizu in March 2016

Digital Manga’s Project-H imprint also announced the following new uncensored licenses. All titles are scheduled for release in 2016:

  • Breaking In by Gen (US$19.95, print and digital)
  • Capture Me by Tousen, Ooba Nii, Nyagomaru, Maccha Chamomo, Sukesaburo, Keiya Kaibara, and Parfait (US$19.95, print and digital)
  • Stop Quibbling About Love by Kerorin (US$22.95, print and digital)
  • Deep Pursuit by DATE (US$22.95, print and digital)
  • Peachy Triangle by Renya Sabashi (US$22.95, print and digital)

  • NTR: Netorare by LEYMEI, Tuguha Utsugi, Kanon Ishino, RIESZ, Daisuke Segami, KANTEN, and TAKE (US$19.95, print and digital)

Digital Manga also announced a change in its policy regarding its publication of hentai manga: it will no longer publish works if the licensor requests chapters removed. The staff commented on the change, saying, “We did this in the past, we’re sorry, it’s not fair to the fans.”

The company also announced plans to release more yuri titles, but it did not reveal any titles or release dates.
