Super Sugoii, the ultimate destination for manga enthusiasts, announced on Friday that Manga Planet India, Kodansha, and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) are embarking on an exciting journey with the launch of the Manga Shakti Project.
This one-of-a-kind research project offers participants the unique opportunity to delve into the world of Japanese manga while also exploring the social challenges faced in India. As a participant, you will receive seven free manga titles during the course of the project, and you will be in the running to win a one-month subscription to read Kodansha manga titles on Manga Planet India.
With a limited capacity of 3000 participants, this is a chance not to be missed. Sign up through the website, fill out two questionnaires, and immerse yourself in the world of manga. Even if you are not provided with manga titles as part of the research project, you will still be eligible to win the subscription to read Manga Planet India provided you fill out both questionnaires.
Manga, a style of Japanese comic books, is a tool for communication, and its stories can also motivate people in their lives. The project is being undertaken by Kodansha Ltd., a leading publication house in Japan, and Manga Planet India, bringing officially licensed Japanese Manga to the Indian audience. It is also supported by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), a Japanese government agency.Manga Planet India
