So is Scanlation dead?

RIP Mangastream-chan.
 
And yeah, it's been pretty tough finding chapters recently, and I realize I'm in a totally new era when it comes to manga.

I guess it's time to go legit and subscribe to the proper streaming services and stuff haha

It's harder and harder to hide these days. The internet just isn't the same place as it was 10, 20, 30 years ago. It's funny how the so called "wild west of the internet" lasted as long as the actual wild west did  :tongue:

Of course we always said it didn't we? "I wouldn't steal it off the internet if I could afford to buy the books/had access to actual copies". Both of those things have changed now though. There's manga isle in every bookshop. You can get anything online sent to your home. You can pay a subscription and read all you want. There's no moral high ground left to stand on unless you're truly poor off.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF
