I know I am one of many who benefits from the scanlation (no! I don't mean money here) because I cannot afford all the manga I want. But most of the scanlator sites I visits regularly, they have this rules that once the manga has been licensed, they stop their project and will eventually dropped it. And I haven't encounter a scanlation group who extorts money from the fans. But I do know a group who sells manga per chapter and put it in a CD. And that group doesn't even have the hardship of scanlating, translating, editing of any of the scans they sell.

Maybe the scanlation group should be a little more strict with regards of the distribution so people who use their project will be avoided. And if the authority really have to hunt down the groups/sites who shares scanlation for free, it's their right.

sorry people but this post is mostly scatterbrain thoughts(the first things that came to mind),
a.)how do you think people outside of japan found out about these things
b.)why dont they help them(give 2 free chapters a vol. then membership fee)
c.)and what series' or vol. that were discontinued how does the fan catch up after he misses a vol. or 2
thats all i have to say for now but i think is pertition time

.....if the original publisher put their original scanlation on the 'original website' i will definitely go register and pay the member fee....
in my place here the english translated manga in store is only a very few selection.
if fan scanlation website have been take down,i wont have a site that can recommend me manga anymore,how will i know what i wanted to read?
just make a system like 'Valve' Steam system or Itunes Store from 'Apple'
i m sure people will buy it if it convenient and easy.....

rather than stopping sites the publishers should Buy it . They then would have controll of the Royalties, which in return go back to the artist
an authors. Win -win

may be people could just start buying manga?


people buy anime?? are you crazy, most people are lazy and do not want to waste their money on set products. I will say one thing, I love scanlations due to the fact it gives me a preview of what I am going to buy before I do so. I can read 4 different languages so I can could always import some manga but the kinda I like would get weird looks <.</



true....especially anime fans...but they could just get from the library i do that a lot, or may be no one has a car.....

shame on me for expecting others to have a job and a car too!


i guess I will say it I like kodomo no jikan and there is no way I am can import that manga... I am kinda of afraid how people would look at me let alone the anime.


heh like it too! but for the plot (im not a lesbian pedo ._.)

but i do like shotacon.......


Are you kidding not just that but you can go to jail for it. A man was arrested for importing manga that have girls that look under 18 in it, with underwear shots and other Fan service. He was fined and sent to jail for buying a manga.

But hell America is full of prudes what can we do about it.

Oh no... i hope this will not be the end of online manga scanlations!!!

It is not that i do not want to support manga creators, it's just that there are limited titles available in anywhere else besides Japan (the origin)! I am quite sure of this. And publishers (outside Japan) only pick some titles to translate, and not forgetting that they may not be selling those titles in every country in the world. So let's face it: bookstores have limited titles of manga. But online.... There are so many choicess! And we are able to read more titles that may not even be officially translated by publishers of other nations besides Japan! And fan scanlations are also relatively quicker and more up-to-date with the releases in Japan (especially if the manga is still ongoing).

I bought some of my favorite titles from the bookstores. i didnt buy all of my favorite titles cos i cant find the title in the bookstore (or at least, one that is in English).

I rather read online scanlations because of the better quality....and plus I don't know japanese...........
Posted 7/30/10
I will continue to read my manga online, for free!

Only way to get me to stop is for the manga to be sold in stores in America, at the exact release time as Japan....

I refuse to wait longer than people in Japan!

Same applies for my anime... which is why i pay to stream anime here on CR.
