    I'm quite disappointed with this. I follow Naruto and Bleach both on this site. And it's been great, but now I'm just upset.

    Naruto, Bleach, One Piece etc....almost all mangas that's in english is licensed already and has been since like 2005 (not sure about the year but I'm pretty sure it's been more then 7 years)

    All that manga was still kept here online as long as possible but I'm pretty sure Vin doesn't want to get arrested for it and there's not much what he can do....
    It's illegal and shouldn't be done, and it was done so far, literally sine '70, because for some people there where no real other options on how to get their hands on manga. And if they had gotten their hands on manga it would usually be untranslated and in japanese. Things are a bit different now, not really for everyone though xD, and as more and more manga gets licensed by american companies i.e. Viz you can expect more and more manga to be pulled from circulation.....

    I don't worry though all it really takes is for someone to start up a server outside of the american/japanese legislation reach, which is bound to happen because of it's popularity at which point you'll have to decide if you'd rather make money for some other guy through advertising on his site or the real mangaka that draws them.....
    Depending on the sites you've been visiting you might have done the same already (some sites even charged for reading new titles that were done by amateurs for free)

    To be or not to be, that is the question.

    Animea might have received a DMCA take-down, with other words the admin was forced to take it down (Same reason why MangaTr***rs took the same titles down). So please don't complain.

    You can just buy the stuff, it's important anyway to buy your favorite series for preventing a cancellation of it.

    yeah that's kind of the deal, 5$ for someone is change and for someone is not that little money (I mean it's not that a lot of money but it isn't cheap either)
    I'd only have to work for about 3h to afford something like that, but someone might have to pull 5h to make the money....
    and 5$ is for a digital print on viz, actual print is 10$, and then shipping is $39.55!!!!!!!!!!!! (for comparison it's about 2-7$ for USA)

    I usually buy titles that have been scanlated to cro and published because basically I can buy an entire volume (10 or more chapters) for about 7-10$ because it's sort of scaled to our market.....Too bad I'm not at home I'd love to post all the books (like I said they come out in hardcover books with entire volumes inside) because I have a lot, but I doubt because of it's popularity naruto will come in Cro soon. Maybe n 5-7years when it's been entirely published in america and japan they start to print it here as well (since the general conclusion is that the more popular manga is the more it's license should cost)

    and basically that's the issue here. I want to get it in affordable prices and not get ripped off and companies have the right to make money by issuing it, and a part of that belongs to the author as well (how much of it really gets there is a topic for another discussion xD), talk about horns of a dilemma :D
