Sleepyfans stole page 1-4 of Naruto 505 from Binktopia/MangaStream, putting a slight filter over them to cover it up, but the line redraws and watermark cover ups make it obvious.
For the other pages... you are kidding, right?
Regardless, if you keep discussing that here, you'll get an infraction. Stay on topic please.
Whats the deal with Mangahelpers? When are they going to continue this manga hear? Mostly all the manga sites are really pissiing me off. They keep shutting down the popluar ones and they are also taking down the mangas that are for adults, Well Im an adult and I read everything. Its just not fair!!!!!!!!!!!!. And on top of that, this manga is discontinued.
It's hard now to find a website that keeps old manga.
What should I do if I wanted to read an old one? this is irritating... who knows how things will be 3 mounths from now. Maybe worse.
There's a massive crackdown on the online distribution on manga online right now. It's the reason OneManga shut down their online manga reader. I've also noticed that many sites that used to carry series like Tenjho Tenge and Wolf Guy have pulled it. I'd be totally okay with this if getting a hold of the manga that I read was easier and more affordable in the U.K. importing it certainly boosts the price tag.
As much as I hate it, publishers are doing this because they're losing money, or apparently they are.

Apparently there was a panel about digital piracy at Comic-Con and they talked about scanlation in Part 2 (2nd page). They even mentioned Open Manga.
This is only temporary. Awhile ago the anime sites were attacked but still they cant track down all the sites. There are still many anime scanlations movement.
So please be patient, this manga wave will be over soon. I wont be surprised that there will be more smaller sites may pop up here and there. I dont think the publishers can control every online sites though I understand that they paid for the licensing and have every right to stop the free sites.
I do support the original work of manga but I prefer to keep the books for collection. Reading online is still my preference.
The fan scanlator groups work very hard and are very up-to-date which I like the most and I do appreciate their hard work.

Akamaru's name has been changed to Jump Next, I recommend looking under that name. I don't know as they have been scanned, google raw distro. If they are available they may be there, or may appear when scanned.
The Mago spin offs are at Manga fox I think that was were I read them.
Bakuman spin off was at a kinda of underground site I don't remember the name though. but sleepy fans also scanlated it. You can also find the Otter 11 thread in the Bakuman section for more info. About the other spin off if there are any I have no knowledge.
