    Re: Weekly Shonen Jump [2010] - Discussion and TOC Talk

    Online scans are not a bad thing most people who buy manga like myself get to know series trough the internet and then buy actual copies. If it wasn't for scans the western fanbase would be even smaller.

    Anyways is not like is gonna change anything It's the same as musicians asking for people to stop downloading music.

    To all our readers
    There are now many people unjustly posting copies of manga on the internet. These unjust copies are inconsistent with mangakas' feelings. They are also distorting the authors' intentions of "I want the work to be read this way". The actions of posting these unjust copies on the net, into which the mangakas have poured their hearts, are not only hurting mangakas in real life but are also against the law, even if done in a light-hearted manner. Every time we discover such "unjust copies", we talk to the mangaka and consider every possible countermeasure. But the number of inconsiderate people is great, and at present we cannot deal with all of them. We have a request for all our readers. The unjust internet copies are deeply hurting the manga culture, mangakas' rights, and even mangakas' souls. Please understand once again that all of that is against the law. Also, the mangakas and Shueisha will severely deal with any unjust copies found on the internet. We ask that our readers please continue to support us.

    Re: Shueisha asks for the end of scans

    On raw-paradise, all the scans are removed and there's only written: The End

    This is bad....

    Re: Shueisha asks for the end of scans

    This is just sad but unfortunately I think they realize it has to come to this. They want to sell manga legally...yet sadly this is how things become popular. It's sort of a two-way street and somehow I just wish there was a way for this to be resolved.

    Re: Shueisha asks for the end of scans

    Shueisha's request is unreasonable and they know it. It's not just English speaking countries that "pilfer" manga scans, it's also Chinese, French, Spanish, Japanese, etc. speaking groups that are involved too. Enforcement is impossible because you have too many people scanning stuff and too many loopholes for scanners to exploit, which Shueisha even acknowledges.

    Besides, the international community has little other means of following scans. I personally buy manga volumes of series I'm a major fan of - examples being One Piece and Fullmetal Alchemist - and I wouldn't be able to currently follow these series if not for scanlations.

    Shueisha's best hope is to encourage fans to respect and support series they're reading because that's pretty much the only thing they can actually do.

    This is very bad indeed! I think "the end" announcement has already triggered off a frenzy on the net. Even more delays to come now....

    Re: Shueisha asks for the end of scans

    This is indeed very sad, but its strange that they don't realize how much scans have affected the popularity of their manga outside of Japan. Or maybe they do and now that is gotten much bigger in other countries they are trting to make the only way to read their manga is to buy it from them.

    Re: Shueisha asks for the end of scans

    Can't understand how Shueisha wanting to cease illegal scans leads Raw-Paradise to shut down entirely. It hosted far more than just Shueisha properties.

    What's up with RawParadise?

    Whenever I go to raw-paradise it just says "the end" Why is it saying that? Is it just having down time or did they stop it?

    Re: Shueisha asks for the end of scans

    I think the biggest problem IMHO is twofold:

    -The Japanese problem (getting manga for free before their legitimately on sale)
    -The international problem (what we are)

    They really need to find a way to legitimize the model by offering manga for sale on the web, even if it's a weekly access to WSJ with a fee in Japanese (which I won't mind cause then the TLers will have the job to sort of match it up until the legit volumes come out in the respective countries), but...who knows how this will turn out.
