    You have bulks of manga in volumes? That is usually from 50 to 70 megs in a rar. So unless they offer 10+ volumes in a bulk... that speed seems kinda useless.

    GTO, Eden, Gantz, Battle Royale, Elfen Lied, Death Note, Beck, Berserk, etc. are all fairly large series. I tend to wait 'till a series is done/close to done before reading so my downloads are invariably fairly large.

    1. Why do you need let`s say 32 volumes of Berserk before you actually start reading.
    2. You didn`t answer. Are downloads offered in bulks of more volumes together. That would be the only use for such a download rate.

    1. Okay, so maybe Berserk was a bad example. But I hate (and I'm sure some people here share my view) reading a couple of chapters, waiting weeks for a new release, and resuming the series. Hence, downloading volumes at a time.

    2. Obviously it would be many volumes combined into one torrent. Otherwise 1mb/s download speeds would be wasted.

    Ok but we`re talking about direct downloads.

    Hmm, true, but 1MB speed's wasted on manga that comes downloaded in chapter-by chapter format (unless it has what, 60 pages per chapter). Even if the chapter gets downloaded in a split second you'll have to be stuck at the computer constantly clicking on download links for the next batch of chapters and waiting for the download window to pop up, and that can be tiresome.
    Innocence proves nothing.

    speed doesn't concern me. As long as it gets downloaded its good. Also, free is better than paying for something useless. There are better sites than here and narutofan that offer good manga. I don't even download here anymore. I just come for the forums, and the links.

    I had this exact problem. I just recently found out what a jackass scammer this guy is, so I decided to cancel my subscription.

    I sent three emails, opened support requests... all of which were ignored. If you're paying through PayPal, just search their help page for "Cancel subscription" and it will give you instructions on how to do it. I finally got my subscription cancelled that way.

    Also, I'm filing the payments that were taken out after I sent the request to cancel my subscription as fraudulent and having my bank dispute them. Since you've got documentation where you'd tried to cancel, it's worth a shot to try the same thing.

    If download speed can be up to 1Mb/s+, which sounds like 500kb/s+ in torrents, how you call around 2 or 3 gigs "Fairly large"? Leaving the computer for a night you can download like 20 or 25Gigs, painful!
    And why since you can wait entire freaking year for the series to done, you can't wait for more few hours to read?
    Gah!
