I like reading colored AND Black and white manga. But I'm used to black & white, though.

It would mean that every mangaka wouldn't be able to afford the colours and subsequently go broke, unless they were offered ridiculous pay rises.
It would mean that weekly manga series would now take a month or even more to release the same twenty pages.
It would mean that anime adapations won't be able to change the hair colours so easily.

I prefer black and white Manga. And there are colored manga, but as it has already been said it gives it a comic feeling, and im not a comic fan.

I think the topic was asking "if it were possible, would it be better or worse", rather then, "If it happened, what would happen to manga."

I also think, that some manga is better off Black and White. As an example, what would you do if you really liked the series, but thought that the main characters hair, clothes etc. colour didn't fit in very well. Would you still read it even though you keep getting pissed at the Mangaka every time?

There are also mangakas that adapt a more computerised colour scheme, which makes the manga seem very bland and cheap, e.g. Beelzebub (I really, REALLY didn't like the babies hair colour, but that's my own opinion). This type of colouring just pisses me off, and if I had to read it every week t get my weekly dose of good plot/character designs/art, then I would probably drop the manga.

But there are also manga which do colours very well, and they actually fit in, and the colours compliment the characters and anime. In those cases, I don't think I would really mind if the mangakas did everything in colour.

From what I can gather, the question is how would manga change if it was in colour. I'm just speculating how manga itself would change, not how the context of the manga would change, which is what everyone else is talking about.
As for your arguments, wouldn't that be the same for the art style? For example, if you didn't like how a character was drawn, or seemed inconsistent with the character's behaviour, then would you still read it? It seems so.

It depends on just how bad it is. The reason I stopped following the Beelzebub anime was because the hair colours pissed me off. And it wasn't any good as an anime anyways.
There is also "The Breaker - New Waves" which I stopped following because I didn't like the art style. The plot was good and all, but I just didn't like how the mangaka started going to a more american, comic style. I just cbf'ed following it anymore. And yes, I do know it is Korean.

Yes, there was definitely an art shift in the second Breaker manga. There wasn't as much comedy either. But I mostly read it for the panelling, which was epic. But I doubt anyone else cares about panelling...

Both the panelling and art style shifted to a more americanised style. And apparently the drawer is different form the first season.

They changed artist? That's still news to me. Incidentally, I think you've gotten addicted to this site too quickly. The only other person who got CR points as fast as you was Nick, and he had to flirt with about ten girls simultaneously to achieve that effect.

Get this right. "Obsession" is different to "doing something else because you don't want to do the thing you're supposed to". And I got that information from Nick.

I like colour. I'd prefer things coloured. Depends who's the colourist is as well. Remember in US comics there tends to be someone else who colours the illustrations. (Inker, colourist and pencillor tends to be the team)
