Tonight there was an outcry from most of the Japanese publishers about how piracy websites are killing manga publishing. As you all know, my views on scanlation have been evolving for the past 10 years, and this was the last straw. While I love doing scanlation, my conscience overruled me tonight and doing scanlation now feels bad. I do want to continue spreading the word about series and artists I love, so I will continue on blogging detailed chapter summaries and live-Tweeting series from the magazines and books as I read them. I will resume writing reviews on Lovely Manga as well.
Thanks to everyone for following Omari’s Sister and Crimson Flower throughout the years. I hope you understand how I feel and like the new blogging and live-Tweet format as a replacement.
