Thread: OneManga is Closing Shop

    This is sad. I mean ardent manga readers already have a set of other websites to read manga from, but introducing manga to new readers is going to be harder now. It's easy to hook someone up with free content. Telling people to buy an obscure hobby item is far more difficult (manga would be considered obscure by its exorbitant prices, if it cost $2.50 per magazine and $5 per volume, life as a manga fan would be much better).

    Damn, currently downloading my fav series like crazy =_=

    I'm glad that I made a start with downloading when Raw-Paradise closed down.

    The Problem is not the fall of Onemanga.

    If i wanted a scan of one of the big 3, there were always faster and higher quality site, like mangastream.
    But Onemanga was easy to navigate and had an acceptable amount of advertisment.
    And the most important thing, it had a wide varity of mangas.
    It will be a pain in the ass to find another site with such high standards.

    But thats not the reason iam troubled about this matter. If they are finished with Onemanga and the rest of the big sites, who know where they will look into next.

    I dont want to say Arlong Park is next in the line, but the direction this is going doesnt look good.

    Errr.. Why would they target us? We are just a internet forum discussing about the illegal mangascans, not exactly sharing them, atleast yet that is. They have absolutely no reason at all to attack this community.

At least Mangastream is trying to stay out of FUNis way by only having four chapters up at a time. It does make a difference.
    I actually brought up in my older post that Viz IS doing this with Rumiko Takahashi's Rin-ne where they are releasing the manga chapters on a weekly basis keeping up with the Japanese release. It's not Shonen Jump but since they own the English rights to One Piece it could be a possibility they would do this. The only problem is if not done correctly it could hurt the sales of their monthly Shonen Jump magazine. Rin-ne, for example, always takes down the older chapters once the volume is put into print. Point is Viz has been doing this with this and few other series, in the Shonen Sunday label, for a year now and it's very possible they could expand to Shonen Jump material as well.

    After I read that, I had to look up that chapter on OneManga. I lol'd

    Donquixote Doflamingo = Tanjiado Lofulamingo
    Bartholomew Kuma = Bisoromi Bear
    Sengoku = Zango
    Marshall D. Teach = Masuru D. Chocheh
    Van Auger = Cloud Ouga
    Jesus Burgess = Xusasu Basasu

    Maybe not the whole forum but the weekly releases and spoilers could be a target.
    And i know of other fansites (warhammer) who were threatend with lawsuit.

    Its not that the company has the right or gets the right in court. But if you run a fansite and get sued for XXX.000 amount of money. Do you take the risk?
    Those fans and discussion sites went down, even when they didnt do anything wrong.They just were afraid of the huge sums in the lawsuit.

    That works not only in US, it also works in germany that way. Just threat someone with a costly lawsuit and he will close his page. Because if you loose, you are screwed for the rest of your life.

    Theres a german proverb:
    "Vor Gericht und auf hoher See, bist du in Gottes Hand."

    translation

    "One is solely in God's hands before the court and on the high seas!"

    I dont want to spread panic, i myself dont think Arlong park is a target atm.
    But i watch the direction things go carefully and this step with OM is the first step in the wrong direction, maybe more will follow.

    I second that! how in the hell does that happen??

    and even though it was really convenient (if crappy at times), I don't think the fall of onemanga will stop the fans.

    Directly attacking a fan board that at most just makes the newest chapter/episode publicaly spread without any form of chapter database seems like a waste of time.
    1. Ace (), 2. WB (), 3. BB (X), 4. Perona () 5. Boa () 6. Jimbei (???), 7. Sabo lives (), 8. Timeskip ()

    Companies have wasted lots of time "stopping" "piracy" before

    Ehhh, I don't read much manga besides One Piece and....Naruto (). Plus, I have the first 48 volumes of One Piece that I can read, so this won't affect me much. But, I feel bad for the people it will effect.

    I understand why they have to close, but it'll make finding new series and reading old ones so much harder. I know I probably won't have the energy or patience to go and search for various sites around the web for every series I want to follow, rather than to have them all conveniently in the same place.
