    Today, we're announcing a new partnership with Bilibili Comics. Starting today, you can read initial chapters for 60 Bilibili Comics manga and webtoons here on Anime-Planet, for free, with links to Bilibili Comics for more chapters.


    We launched the read online portal in 2020 and offer a range of manga, webtoons, and light novel chapters to read legally here on Anime-Planet. Bilibili Comics is bringing so many new titles to the table for the community, and we're excited to keep working with them moving forward. Bilibili Comics has also launched our Anime-Planet community ratings on all of their information pages, so make your voice heard by rating!

    You can track your reading progress for these titles on Anime-Planet, as well as other manga, novels, webtoons and OELs, plus get personalized recommendations and much more.

    Thanks for your support of Anime-Planet, and check out the official press release from Bilibili Comics:



    Bilibili Comics is proud to announce a partnership with Anime-Planet, providing free chapters of manga and webtoons to Anime-Planet’s online reading portal. In addition, Bilibili Comics has added Anime-Planet’s community ratings to their pages as part of a new third-party scoring feature.

    At launch, Bilibili Comics has released sample chapters for a set of 60 series on Anime-Planet, covering a wide range of genres such as BL, GL, martial arts, science fiction, and comedy. More series and chapters will be provided on an ongoing basis moving forward. The community can read these chapters for free, add a rating, and track their reading progress on Anime-Planet, in addition to being able to follow links to Bilibili Comics to read the full series and to see Anime-Planet’s combined community score.

    A spokesman from Bilibili Comics said, “We are very optimistic about the partnership with Anime-Planet, as it will allow us to connect with more comic book fans. Now, fans can read sample chapters of our comics and score their favorite ones directly on the Anime-Planet website. At the same time, Anime-Planet’s community ratings will become an important consideration when users choose something to read on the Bilibili Comics platform.”

    Kim Cameron, Anime-Planet’s founder, said: "We are thrilled to have this opportunity to partner with Bilibili Comics. Bilibili Comics offers so many high-quality manga and webtoons that we know our community will love, and we're excited that users can make their voices heard in the ratings. We are looking forward to strengthening this partnership moving forward. "

    The collaboration is expected to have a profound impact on Bilibili Comics. The majority of Bilibili Comics’ works have versions translated into English, so Anime-Planet, one of the most influential anime and manga communities amongst English speakers, will enable more fans in English-speaking markets to read Bilibili Comics’ highly-regarded series, and will continue to strengthen the legal manga industry. Anime-Planet has established strong credibility in the community and industry in the over 20 years of its operation, and as a result, displaying Anime-Planet’s community ratings on the Bilibili Comics platform will optimize their user experience as well.

    Bilibili Comics was launched in April 2021 and has more than 15 million monthly active users. More than 700 comics that are translated into English, Indonesian, and Spanish are available on the platform. The company’s most popular series is Heaven’s Official Blessing, which has an animated adaptation that has aired on streaming platforms such as Funimation and Netflix. Bilibili Comics plans to collaborate with additional animation platforms as a way of supporting content creators from different regions, so that they can continue to provide highly regarded comics works to readers worldwide. With a goal of respecting the cultures of different countries, Bilibili Comics actively promotes localization to support sustainable development of the animation community.

    Founded in 2001, Anime-Planet was created by fans, for fans. Anime-Planet offers the ability to track the anime you've seen, and the manga, webtoons, and OELs that you've read; has personalized anime and manga recommendations; the ability to legally read and watch content online through industry partnerships; and has a vast content database for anime and manga, tags, characters, and staff.

    Nice. Great addition for AP to have such a collaboration.

    Being realistic though, with 'only' the first 60 chapters of series i guess the Luffy sites still remain supreme.

    In this case, it's manhua fresh from China. There are some really good Chinese creators that deserve more recognition! ^_^

    To clarify, it's the initial chapter of 60 titles, so probably just the first chapter...

    It does say "initial chapters of the first 60", yes. Not sure what needed clarification. And it's not only the first chapter of each.
