Yup, even the WSM mags are down.
Kōdansha owns 7 manga magasines T___T : Betsu Fure, Nakayoshi, Afternoon, Weekly Shōnen Magazine, Monthly Shōnen Magazine, Monthly Shōnen Magazine Special, Seasonal Shōnen Magazine Wonder.
It's really huge.
Argh, it's awful. Hopefully for me, Vinland Saga is edited in french. But I'll have to wait for one year if there is not another solution. MH is the main raw provider in the Internet.
I'm pretty sure you won't have to wait a whole year. Hox isn't planning to quit translating VS, as far as I know, and it's not like you can only find RAWs on MangaHelpers.. *cough*
The whole situation doesn't seem all that bad to me, to be honest. The administration was asked to take down all Kodansha's series and not just Vinland Saga, I imagine it would be much worse if they were dealing with each manga separately. And this action can mean that they're going to release some of their titles in English and that's always a good thing.

This cover is wonderful, Hope we can have it bigger soon ^^
Yeah, there's other sources.
And there's worst than our case : this happens when it remains only two chapters for tsubasa chronicles. Its fans should be furious...
It figures that not too long after my group tries to fill in the gaps for some Vinland Saga on this website, it gets taken down. >>' I even wanted to get other language translators too. Oh well. That's luck for you. Anyone know of a good (and free) file sharing site? *shot*
I do hope the issue is resolved quickly though. It would be a shame if we, as the fans, were unable to partake in the very thing that makes us fans. I'm also wishing for a North American release of Vinland Saga soon, as that would let me (and a lot of other fans here) finally be able to support the series and still understand what the heck is being said. If we aren't able to pirate anything, then how would the publishers know what in the heck to purchase the rights for?
New volume cover is BAMFing, by the way... just putting it out there.
I've seen your post in the community and since I don't want to log on to LiveJournal, I'm going to reply to it here~ It seems like there was an explanation in the comments section of Afternoon - Makoto Yukimura got sick and missed the deadline. There's no scan to confirm it, but I've heard about it quite a few times (after I posted about the break having something to do with the cover, that's it).
Oh, I didn't heard or read it ^^
I'll update my post in LJ later, then. Thanks.
Okay, I'm probably going to sound really stupid, but here it goes...
I was browsing around on mangaupdates earlier and saw that on Vinland Saga's page, there was another magazine listed with Afternoon as being the one the series publishes in called Morning Two. Does anyone know anything about this? Should I be wary of this information or not? I don't want to cause any panic for nothing, but at the same time am unsure if this was a typo or not.
From what I've seen, Morning Two isn't linked to VS in any way, they may have confused it with Magazine.
Okay, cool; as long as someone knows what's going on... it's all good. Thanks, man.
a new chapter! finally!
so... I think this will make things going.
I didn't find the scanalation. only the raw
enjoy the chapter
