Manga scanlation site closing down

Postby ZeroRyoko1974 » Thu Jul 22, 2010 1:10 pm

From ANN

One Manga, a site with unauthorized, translated scans of manga (scanlations), has posted a Thursday notice to say that "this is the last week of manga reading" on the site. The site cited what it describes as a recent change in the manga publishers' "stance on manga scanlations." According to the notice, all content will be gone from the site by early next week.

One Manga ranked #935 on Google's list of the 1,000 most-visited sites on the web in May. Another manga aggregator, MangaHelpher, announced last month that it is removing links while it prepares to launch OpenManga, a new platform to allow manga creators to distribute their work digitally.

This is probably going to be a good thing. I never used to have an opinion on scanlations and fansubs but in the last year or so I've become very much against them. I like the idea more of the OpenManga where creators can put up their owns works as they choose.
