Digital Manga’s adult imprint Project-H has reopened its online store and has posted the Kodomo no Jikan e-books for sale again. According to Anime News Network, the website is based on Wix and uses the same payment processor as before. It was also stated that the staff is still refining the site, and plans to re-implement the old site’s points system.
Project-H announced in December 2018 that its website had been banned from its ecommerce platform Shopify for violating the platform’s Acceptable Use Policy. Digital Manga then announced that it had removed Kodomo no Jikan e-books from its eManga website, which is also hosted by Shopify, as a “precaution.”
