It looks like we can finally get free online manga legally, and the best part is that they will release it simultaneously with Japan! This is because Shueisha, the publisher behind Dragon Ball, My Hero Academia, Naruto, and a whole lot of other manga, has now launched their free Global MANGA Plus service. It will be an app, which is now available for both iOS and Android devices.

The app is now available globally except for China, Japan, and South Korea. Anime News Network reported on the apps details as:

The service has a total of 50 titles, including 13 completed series, and more titles will be added gradually. The service publishes new chapters of currently serialized manga from Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine, Jump Square magazine, and the Shonen Jump+ service at the same time they are released in Japan. While MANGA Plus is free to download and use, users can also purchase compiled book volumes for specific manga. The first chapter and the latest chapter of currently serialized manga are also free. A portion of the revenue from advertisements on the website will go directly to the manga authors.

These titles include:
