Believed this news is a response to another manga publisher
Japanese publisher Houbunsha launched its Comic Fuz manga app and website on Friday. The app allows users to read Houbunsha's manga magazines and the series they publish.
A new manga adaptation of the Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Side Story (Magia Record: Puella Magi Madoka Magica Gaiden)smartphone role-playing game's "Another Story" arc launched in the app. Afro's Laid-Back Camp(Yurucamp) manga also moved from Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara magazine to the app. Additionally, Houbunsha plans to release original works in the app.
Basic service is free, but a monthly membership for 480 yen (about US$4.30) offers an unlimited reading plan for members. More than 1,700 manga chapters are available to read for free. Users can receive one medal in the app every 30 minutes and use accumulated medals to read manga available in a serialization corner that updates daily. The app received more than 50,000 pre-registrations, and new users receive 1,000 bonus medals for the launch.
With the paid version of the app, users can read current and past issues of Houbunsha's Manga Time Kirara, Manga Time Kirara Max, Manga Time Kirara Forward, Manga Time Kirara Carat, Shūkan Manga Times, Hanaoto, and kyapi!magazines. Hanaoto and kyapi! are only available to read on the service's website. The individual manga available to users include more than 30 titles such as New Game!, Doujin Work, Hidamari Sketch, Kin-iro Mosaic, K-ON!, Is the order a rabbit?, and Blend S.
Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.

Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.

Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
