    The hell? You stated your personal opinion as fact when it clearly isn't. Speak for yourself.

    You don't need to. As you read above, most people don't apply to your self-generalisation. With the exchange rate here I spend over 800 bucks on a single volume. Which takes at least six weeks to ship here. Forget keeping up with the dozen-plus manga I'm interested in, I can't even afford to have a complete collection of a single series. The manga volumes I own are the last few volumes of Saiyuki Reload(which I bought because they were no longer scanlated) and a few old back issues of Negima that I came upon out of sheer luck in a second-hand book fair.

    Still convinced about how cheap and easy it is for the entire world? The way I see it the only exception here is you.

    It's not a fucking opinion. It's a God damn fact, whether you think you can afford it or not or even if it's not up to your own economic standards, because when you say shit like this:

    You need some serious alone time to grow the hell up.

    Economy is not exemplified by fucking third world countries, don't lump your own situation with the rest of the cheapskates who are in their "entertainment is free" comfort zone that represent 80% of the manga/anime community.

    It might be expensive in your own country (Because everyone who likes manga apparently lives in a 3rd world countries like yourself) but it's pretty fucking easy ordering whatever product you want online whether they are mangas or fucking furniture, regardless of the time it takes to get to your household, no one said you order the thing and it magically pops in your fucking bookshelf.

    Go to hell. If your simple brain can't even comprehend such basic logic I'm done talking with you(No doubt you'll toss another potshot out of your mature desire to get the last word in).

    It's a fact for you maybe. But like you saw above it isn't for most of us. Whether you like it or not that's how it will ever be. And suggesting that you first-world 'cheapskates' form the majority of the scanlation community is so ignorant that I won't be surprised if you end up on a lot more ignore lists now(Here's where you brag that you don't give a shit).

    I think it's about time this thread was closed. Break it up before I get out the hose.

    If I could subscribe to English Versions of the Magazines I read on a weekly basis, or could go to a store and browse through English Versions of Magazines I read occasionally, I would do it. I don't have a problem with paying for manga, I buy the volumes for the series I find worthy of purchase, but I don't want to wait for the Volume to be complete and published In english to read the latest chapters. I don't see anything wrong with publishing companys being stricter on scanlation groups, but they need to give us, the english manga reading community, a viable alternative to weekly serialized magazines.

    So is there a site that has most of the mangas available to read online and is not slow in updating the manga? I tried manga share but it's way too slow in updating their stuff.

    we got nothing to worry aobut. Look how the music industry is doing stoping pirating. Not to mention the big publishing companies are all in Japan. I doubt they want to squander the profits(in an already struggling industry) on lawyers...

    I rememebr the good old days when #lurk used to be the place to get mangas. In a positive note, it is good that OneManga shut down because it was putting scanlation in the spotlight.

    I personally deferred over to http://www.mangareader.net. They're pretty good about the quality and the updates, though the ads can get on my nerves at times.
