J-Comi notes

Ken Akamatsu's J-Comi beta is now up, with all 14 volumes of Love Hina. It'll have more out-of-print manga in the future, so this a good sign.

Anyways, the manga are distributed in secured PDF files. Since they even disabled printing, it took me a while to rip the images automatically, but it's doable with some PDF converters. The HQ PDF files are at 827x1120, and the LQ PDF files are at 420x595. There are some ads at the beginning, middle and end of the volume, but it's fairly unobtrusive.

I'll be following this with interest.


  1. If you have photoshop you can just open the pdf in it and import the images.

  2. It's password-protected, so I can't do that.
