    This sounds like a really awesome partnership and i'm interested to see what all comes to Anime Planet.

    When it says "Lezhin will continue to work closely with Anime-Planet to bring more webtoon content to the community in the future." does that mean more chapters of the series that's already here, or the first chapters of new series?
