    Ah.

    That would leave a scar on me if I had a monopoly in the manga industry. I don't think Oda would care much with all the royalties he's getting every year, unless he actually cares about his fans.

    However mangapanda never done great job on translation issue and on the quality of the manga pages.....

    For MP, probably, but for other groups as well, presumably not as bad as MP.

    They're fast, that's the point...

    Most of them are owned by the same people and just copies of each other, I bet.

    I thought about it, which does make sense, even just MP, already so terribly big as an example. :sweatsmile:

    The problem is finding people to provide the scans at this point, haha.

    I don't think so, the source for different groups is pretty much the same, so it will affect both MP and MS, both will release days later than usual, unless MS has its own unique and safe source, which is a different story. Nonetheless, the news is definitely a warning.

    I don't really know how I truly feel about this. On one hand I'm sad because it'll be harder to read chapters weekly with this schedule, but on the other hand I'm happy that this is somehow motivating me more to buy the volumes I'm missing, and to keep reading One Piece legally through them.

    I feel bad for those who got arrested, after all I don't see what they can earn from this. We did have the chance of reading the manga freely and early coz of these folks. So, I pray they shouldn't get any serious punishment but a slap in the wrist - my pessimistic part of the brain thinks otherwise though :(

    Regardless, at least this will help my sorry ass in buying the volumes which I have been contemplating to do for a long time.

    @JollyR , don't look at One Piece alone, consider the mangas which make their debut - I think they take quite a bad hit too. And for them these numbers must matter a lot.

    The crazily optimistic part of me says, "well at least now you will be looking forward to Mondays".

    Now I need to prepare my mind and soul in accepting the possibility of delays in the future, as a part of life. After all, life isn't fair Q_Q

    Wait, how did they find out 4 people have uploaded OP chapters? o.o

    And as long as I can read OP chapters online, I don't care if chapters will be released on different day instead of thursday.

    Really? It's illegal but what they did helped us read OP faster. I did feel sorry for them though it's not like they didn't earn anything for doing that.
