So basically from August 1st (Today) 😛 Japan are working with 15 anime production companies and manga publishers too begin simultaneously taking down illegally uploaded anime and manga on foreign sites. Apparently most of the sites that will be affected will be Chinese sites. Here’s an image of some of the sites:
Quite a lot of people are saying things like “It’ll be like taking 1 down, 5 more pops up in its place. Good freaking luck.” This is probably true but I don’t blame Japan for trying to make people pay for their Anime/Manga, However they don’t make it easy for people outside Japan to get it, as it takes like 7 months after Japan release just to get a new volume. I would happily pay a month subscription to read the latest chapters from Japan that have been translated into English (Or other.)
What do you think?
