Kitsu.Io, an online manga/anime open source content delivery and discovery platform, received $600,000 in seed money from Viz Media and Bernard Chong
Surprised to learn this is Hummingbird. I remember not liking the site in the slightest compared to MyAnimeList and being met by a huge circlejerk of unpleasant people on the forums including the creator. Weird to see VIZ give away money like this.
