Animanga in the News: 4/15/11

+ posted by saladesu in Anime/Manga News on Apr 15, 2011 07:20
Here you will find a run down of today's anime and manga news! If anything major happened the anime and manga world today, you'll find it in this post! By the way, I'm saladesu, one of the translators and global moderators of MH, and I'll be posting a post like this every day (as much as possible, anyway). Look forward to them ;)

J.Comi Posts First Two "Purified" Series

Full volumes of "Player wa Nemurenai: The Man Lost in the Network Labyrinth" and "Miracle Hime Jubilee" available for online reading after J-Comi's "purification".

"Love Hina" and "Mahou Sensei Negima" mangaka Akamatsu Ken's J-Comi manga distribution site had earlier announced an "Illegal Out-of-Print Manga File Purification Project", wherein they would allow users to upload illegal and out-of-print manga files, and then J-Comi would "purify" it, adding advertising to the files and then distributing it online with the blessings of the original mangaka.

J-Comi posted the first two series, Kurosawa Tetsuya and Masaki Hidehisa's "Player wa Nemurenai: The Man Lost in the Network Labyrinth", and Miyao Gaku's "Miracle Hime Jubilee" and both can now be read for free on the site (in Japanese only). Previously available series were Akamatsu's own "Love Hina" (all 14 volumes), Shinjou Mayu's "Houkago Wedding" (one-shot), Kaji Kengo and Kisaki Takashi's "Koutsuu Jiko Kanteinin Tamaki Rinichirou" (all 18 volumes) and Ishioka Shouei's "Belmond Le VisiteuR" (all 3 volumes).


Another Scanlation Group Gets C&D Letter

Naruto scanlation group Japflap receives a cease and desist letter from Viz Media Europe, forcing them to shut down.

HQ Naruto scanlation group Japflap was forced to close its doors today and remove all download links after they received a cease and desist letter from Viz Media Europe, as detailed by Japflap leader Eagle in this post on the Japflap forums.

Whether or not this spells imminent trouble and more cease & desist letters for other scanlation groups remains to be seen.

Japflap will be missed. One of the best High Quality Naruto scanlation group, hands down. As for J.Comi, the way they use "Purified" term is funny. I doubt their plans will be as successful if they only release raws, and not english scans.

J.Comi will be popular among the Japanese, and hopefully eventually, there will be an English version as well :)
