    Eh... 2 pages and not one person is describing it from the scanlator's point of view. O_o

    Okay, so...

    my group did a few Naruto scans. We took Japanese Raws, editted them, translated them, proofread it, then shipped it out for manga community. This general process is how all scanlations are done-- with scanlator's hardwork. And, since scanlators are fans--they do it entirely for free.

    Now, Tazmo, who is the owner of narutofan, charges money for these scanlations when

    1) He didn't take the time to make any of them. Scanlator groups made them available because they want them to be able to circulate in the community for free. Yet, Tazmo practically steals them from scanlator group. (As a matter of fact, if you looked at Inane's scanlations they specifically say "If you payed money for this, you got ripped off." or something along those lines on the front page. They even have messages like this:
    written)
    --By the way, Tazmo not only does this with Naruto scans, but he does it with MANY other kinds cause he is also the owner of www.directmanga.com


    2) obviously as mentioned, it's not entirely legal to do host.

    In other words, he is a big hoax. A scam.

    Numerous times he told people "if we don't have $800 to pay for the servers, then narutofan will shut down." In reality, he doesn't use that money for servers. He uses it to buy things like x-box, playstations, ect.

    Also, he tries to get people to donate by claiming "you could win this fabulous prize if you donate money to Narutofan." That's all bullshit. There has never been one grand prize winner give evidence of him/herself winning a prize.

    P.S.
    @ Bright, that's a nice offer you're giving... but... I don't think there's really any other way to send money other than paypal. =(
