No Region Restrictions on JManga Anymore (UPDATED)

JManga (@JManga_official) just tweeted: "Just got the confirmation!! Thanks to all of your support... IS NOW GLOBAL!!!!! WE DID IT!!!!!"

Awesome news. I expected it to happen, but not this quickly. High fives to everyone who politely let JManga (and by extension, the rights holders they had to negotiate with) know that there is a global market for digital manga- not just a North American one. We did it!

Update: Ugh, not yet. According to a poster on the shoujoai.com forum, Girl Friends is the only yuri title available outside North America. UGH. As Erica said, we should continue to politely push JManga for no more region restrictions.
