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.
