to all manga lovers,
sadly, mangafox had already broken the rules.
As a reader, and also (a free translator), I feel sad learning the facts that sites like mangafox profits from free-scanlation mangas, uploading back hit series (manga lovers should know this by now), and ignoring the requests from scanlators.
WE, the SCANLATORS, do not make profits.
We just want to let people know the fun of reading mangas.
I admit that sites like mangafox introduces me to a lot of mangas that I've never knew and loved. but, once it had been licensed, shouldn't the manga community respects the publisher as well as the mangaka wish. Better yet, as a loyal fan, shouldn't we to buy and OWN the manga WE love? and take down old releases. Not re-upload.
I do not wish for the mangakas to know about this. If they knew, what horror would that be.
They may not be motivated anymore to draw mangas we love just because of our online community. I wish for that to never happen. (ONE PIECE on hiatus because of online fans -> never want to read this headline on the news, do you?)
To anyone who had been reading Shouta Aya's manga, please know that the mangaka requests that all her mangas online to be stopped. Read here more (http://omaris-sister.blogspot.com/2011/08/retiring-junketsu-kareshi.html)
Shouldn't we rejoice that mangakas are also trying to help their overseas fans by getting their works licensed (in English, mind you, it may be a little slower, but it worth the wait).
Respect the mangakas.
Respect the publishers.
Respects the scanlators.
Just a cool vid I came across. enjoy
