Thanks goes to Lia for this piece of news.
"There is an end to everything, to good things as well."
It pains me to announce that this is the last week of manga reading on One Manga (!!). Manga publishers have recently changed their stance on manga scanlations and made it clear that they no longer approve of it. We have decided to abide by their wishes, and remove all manga content (regardless of licensing status) from the site. The removal of content will happen gradually (so you can at least finish some of the outstanding reading you have), but we expect all content to be gone by early next week (RIP OM July '10).
So what next? We're not really sure at this point, but we have some ideas we would like to try out. Until then, the One Manga forums will remain active and we encourage all of you to continue using them. OMF has developed into a great community and it would be a shame to see that disappear.
You can also show us some love in this moment of sadness by 'liking' our brand new Facebook page. It would be nice to see just how many of you came to enjoy our 'better than peanut butter and jelly' invention.
Regardless of whether you stay with us or not, on behalf of the One Manga team, I would like to thank you all for your unwavering support over the years. Through the ups and downs you have stuck with us, and that is what kept us going.
As a certain Porky was fond of saying... That's all folks!
Time for me to go lay down and let this all sink in.
What it means for us
Well... it means we are down to Ju-Ni and Mangastream. Yes Mangafox is still up but no I don't know how long they can survive when Onemanga is already down and out. I am personally a little upset because while I can still read Bleach, I can no longer follow other manga titles. At least not with the ease I used to. I either have to go digging in the depths of the internet to find scanlations or just give them up. It's not even a matter of paying as I simply can't get the latest chapter because Viz is years behind. T.T
In short, enjoy your manga while you can. It might not be around for much longer!
