How are you working out that it's cheaper then in a shop? When you buy a manga it's a one off fee but to print a manga from online takes in the cost of ink, paper, electricity and the internet, not to mention any materials used to bind it together etc.

I think anyone that does that should be arrested. Reading something online (maybe to get an idea of it one would like to buy) is one thing, but printing it off suggests that they want to read it multiple times at one's own leisure. If the manga they are printing is in a shop then it must be licensed, therefore making their actions illegal.

This is simply unacceptable behaviour. If they don't have enough respect for the mangaka to pay a few pounds/dollars/whatever currency for their work, when it is available in their locality, then they shouldn't be reading it at all.

I have a question though. Are the people you allude to the same type of people as in those "I have a friend (who is really me)" scenarios?

i wanted to do that for the short mangas but couldnt be stuffed saving the images and enlarging them, if you have a printing account you can always use that and waste the school's ink !!

I prefer read in computer or buy in book store coz I don't have to waste my ink
I just save the picture in some file and I read it without have to wait loading
and If I want to reread the manga I just open the file and read
but for print it I think just stupid....
