I am personally a special edition whore so I buy box sets and toys and all the other goodies that they release in America. And they end up sitting unopened on my shelf as I read it on onemanga or something similar. Much like anime I find that something is taken away from the characters when they censor it for us.

*le sigh* Onemanga.com has announced that, this is it's last week.

I do hope that the manga companies realize that doing something like this, will be a HUGE blow to them. I get, removing licensed manga, but removing ones that aren't.. stupid. Are they planning to licensed ALL manga? No, I don't think so..

Yes, yes, I also get that the manga-ka's themselves want scans to end because it's not fair to them. However! People, like me, who absolutely stink at learning how to read their language, have no reason.. what-so-ever to buy their mangas. If it's scanned, I read it, like it, and hope (and beg) that'll be licensed so I can buy it.

I've tried to buy manga, from reading just the plot summaries they (Del-rey, Shojo Beat, Shounen Jump...etc) have and well.. I've done it four times and ALL four times I have HATED the manga they have and am GREATLY annoyed that I wasted my precious money on such pointless, useless, gobble-de-gook. The scans have helped me see if I want the series or not. But, I do realize that the manga companies could careless because, me buying the crap manga's, is still money in their pockets. Also, I just want to point out (lol). Sometimes their summaries are so corny and horrible sounding that it makes me cringe and over-look some pretty good series. La Corda d'Oro, Maid-sama!, Happy Cafe, and OHSHC have me face-palming and embarrassed that I even looked at the summary.

Anyway, it's irritating, but it's happening. My main concern is.. what about the manga that have not been licensed and that I adore? 1/2 Prince, Karneval, Giant Killing, Barajou no Kiss, Nurarihyon no Mago, Ao no Exorcist, Gokusen ..etc. I'm never going to be able to read them again and the manga companies don't care. *2nd le sigh* See, they don't get it, that's how we can tell them what manga to bring over and license!!!!

Oh, well. Nothing I can do about it. If they wish to be stupid, so be it.

My List: of manga that will, probably, never get licensed.
1/2 Prince
Ao no Exorcist
Giant Killing
Akagami no Shirayukihime
Ashita no Ousama
Barajou no Kiss
Karneval
Kingyo Sou
Nadeshiko Club
Otokomae Beas Club
Shinrei Tantei Yakumo
You're My Girlfriend
Boku wa kisu de Uso wo
Gokusen
Eikaiwa School Wars
Nurarihyon no Mago
Kirameki Gingachou Shoutengai
Tonari no Megane-kun
Nousatsu Rock Shounen
Warau Kanako-sama
Seirei Produce
Yamamoto Zenjirou to Moushimasu
Fuan no Tane
Doublets
Crimsom Empire
Matsuri Special
Nanaco Robin
S.L.H. - Stray Love Hearts!
Maimiko Touko no Jikenbo

And that is only a small list.


Sorry I didn't tell you this earlier...I just saw it but Kanako-sama is licenced...I almost jumped for joy....It's coming out I think in the fall.

What's Kanako-sama..? Anyway, that's awesome that it's, actually, being licensed! Yay!
Posted 7/27/10
Yeah, me and my boyfriend both read manga online because you usually can't find what we read at the local bookstore. We were both pretty upset that OneManga is shutting down, but we've found several other sites to use. However, with the death of OneManga, the death of the others unfortunately can't be far behind. I'm really sorry to see it go, but there's no doubt that the fans will continue to do what they feel is necessary to share the love of the genre.

I think it is Bull! I understand removing lisenced manga, but why do we have to get rid of manga that are not lisenced? Plus I hate the translations of all Viz Media's manga because they take out all of the honorifics and try to make it more american...


i totally agree with that! it's really depressing me ! it's from JAPAN damn it! at least keep some of the same stuff that make it actually authentic!

That's a sad notation...i bet other sites like Manga Fox and others would soon shut down too. Everyone's sooo worried about the copyrite but they don't care about the actuall consumers. most of the chapters on OneManga haven't even set foot in the U.S yet...

I miss onemanga.com! They're one of the reasons why I read manga!
Because of them, I got addicted to manga. . .
