Japan times: manga piracy is bad! Anonymous 01/16/2019 (Wed) 00:53:07 [Preview] No. 30576

So, now that I have been informed such a wonderful site exists where is this website they speak of that gets 300 million hits in Japan a month, where I can read raws?

couldn't they just crackdown or threaten a crackdown on any japanese companies that advertise there? like if you're caught supporting piracy we'll fine you? I'm sure there's more than a fair bit of chinese ads on there they wouldn't be able to do anything about though.

Manga aggregators are basically spotify, they need to get with the program. If they don't then some out of print manga will be lost to time, just like how many video games can no longer be played without emulators.

Mangas especially from the 90's (and not even so much 80's) are at huge risk of getting lost to time already. Something like Adventrues of Kotetsu can even be pretty high profile, for it's type, but too obscure for scanlations to exist and under threat to be crakced down on for copyright whenever the Japanese version is spread. I used to have trouble even tracking down DNA^2, and sometimes a death of a seeding location at the crucial time when that's the only seeder that exists can bring down availability for now and forever, even if in the future there's a system in place that wouldn't lose it.

It's not the issue that we're heading to some dystopia where nothing can be found. The problem is the looming threat that some unfortunate series gets into a copryight limbo or obscurity just because they don't enter circulation at the time when it was a great moment for them to enter it.

I've been giving many of my old manga to the library when I finish with them, but lately I have wondered if I should store them instead so we can recover those titles when the manga apocalypse happens? At least untill there are more video game and manga libraries. Even official translations of obscure stuff can go out print, and might become hard to acquire someday too.

May not be a bad idea honestly. With the moves just starting to be made now there would still be a lot that laugh at the idea but problems are on the horizon. Might as well be ready.
