New site from a coalition of publishing companies of manga and anime launched with support from western english backers (Viz, Kodansha, Crunchyroll, Hulu) to educate and raise awareness of legal alternatives to piracy.

Keep on stop piracy.
How nostalgic. I'm sure they'll finally stop interweb piracy this time. Glad to see the entertainment industry is still tilting at windmills.
Nice, didn't know about some of those titles they have on there.
The campaign is to make the fans aware, but people who know pirate sources already know the original source. It's complicated.
In and out of itself the idea is good but seriously lacking. Something like Crunchyroll does with the latest chapter available for free but having to pay for past volumes would have been a lot better.

Site list (page 11) & other informations: http://www.meti.go.jp/policy/mono_in...les/140414.pdf
Batoto and Nyaa are in the list
Didnt realize some of those sites were pulling in that many, especially MS with how little offerings they are.
I thought the filehost page was interesting, though content providers already routinely screen those.
Look at their estimated traffic net worth.
How do you pull a hostile take over of other scanlation groups? I know they are not saints but that sounds kinda weird.
Anyways, I doubt they will be succesful here. There is money to be made so shutting down sites will simply result in them being replaced with others. It is a shame, but not in the least surprising, that every single online manga reader I use is in the list there.
This month the the Japanese government is shutting down manga illegal manga sites seems like early scanlation for jump is going to stop and viz shonen jump website is going to be the only option now.
