PostSubject: Should scanlations be banned?   Mon Nov 01, 2010 11:16 pm

There are many companies popping up that are developing translated manga called scanlations.
Recently, one of the largest scanlation companies out there, "One Manga," was asked to take down their online reading section for their site.
Do you think that scanlation companies should be banned?

It's hard to say, because they offer so many manga to people who cannot read Japanese.
They're also free so they're not running a lucrative business either.
Not to mention, not all manga are available overseas.

However, on the other hand, manga artists and distribution companies work hard to put out those manga.
Artists have to make a living somehow.
It would be nice if people who read the scanlations would be inspired to purchase the book.

Absolutely yes they should be banned.

There's no such thing as a scanlation company and nor should there ever be. Scanlators don't get paid (for good reason).

The artists don't make a lot of money as it is on their own manga. Giving it out for free is ridiculous.

The people who read the scanlations aren't going to purchuse the book if they can't read Japanese to begin with. If the book is available in english, what's the point of scanlating it? It annoys me that people do this. : [

Although I am part of a few scanlation groups, I would say "yes", definitely be banned unless the big companies let them scanlate the manga (which is impossible I know). As an artist, if I become professional, I would not work my hard work to be available for free while I don't have enough money to buy food. That's it.

We don't want our boss to starve x 3

that's also a good point. I would be really annoyed if I saw my manga distributed for free without my permission. Making manga takes too long for others to benefit from the process~.

Although, I would be interested to see what a translation of my manga would look like...

Really now OneManga was just a hosting site to site to view already scanlated manga from other groups and sites from all over the web. They are no way a real company. Even if you take down a big site like that you still have all those scanlator groups that scan those manga and host them on their site though download or IRC. They are still around, and unless the big real company go after those sites, there be no end. You just got to know were to go like back in 2003 when scanlator sites where blooming.

You should ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS buy the manga(or anime)! If you can't wait that long buy the Japanses version though Ebay and look at the pretty pictures. Or you can wait. xD;

And the saddest thing of all is, ppl think it should stay free. Mangaka's have a right to stop working until they get paid. >.> I hate how ppl think it's free. >__<
