    well I guess they have some secret funds from somewhere,

    ...Bandwidth, servers, you know, the usual reasons, csuti.

    For a while, Kane accepted donations, but stopped that, as it didn't generate much. Now, I believe most of the funds come from ads that pop up when you try to download manga, but I could be wrong...

    I don't know the exact numbers.

    Roughly $300 US dollars per month for servers.

    Paid directly by Kane's own pocket money

    A prize for captain obvious!

    Theres a reason I not so jokingly refer to Kane as Lord and Master, he is almost completely responsible for upkeep aside from the popups and crap - and he was supporting it back BEFORE we had all the ads. You all really should thank him.
