This was the manga forum when I was still in my youth!
hmmm, there was a time, years ago. When online manga reader was still too rare to find. When there were too much scanlators for Naruto. When scanlators sites only provided Megaupload and/or Rapidshare links (or IRC). When there were only a few alternatives to some shitty sites like narutofan or other Tazmo-like. For students like me, who didnt have much money to spend (not to mention premium filesharing sites), this site is really a gift from heaven.
Because this site is too good to be true, I tried to contribute to this site by posting in its forum. That time was fun.
And then, later on college, I dont have really much free time for mangas and online live because of study and work, but I gave a look on this site sometimes and this site has much member and much posts than when I was active. I became an inactive member.
Some years later, there are many online reader sites, and downloading has been much easier than before, because of steady scanlation groups, a lot of mirroring (and torrents), and bigger bandwidths in general.
Then not so long ago, I came back to this site, looking for Pastel (which is relatively hard to find) and noticed that this site is far more quiet now. So sad but true.
I guess cutting the manga download because of financial problem is a legit reason to cut the bandwidth. We had fun in here, but we didnt really care about the dark side of this site maintenance. We cant really force you to bleed, while we have nothing to give in return.
I really hope the best for you and this site. Thanks for your tireless effort these years.
