Lots of people read manga online. OneManga and MangaFox are hugely popular for their online translations of Japanese manga.
They are also, however, largely illegal. Much (if not most) of the manga scanlations on these sites are unlicensed, and the publishers are cracking down.
OneManga has removed all of their scanlations (click here to see their FAQ about this change) and are now focusing on their series lists and online discussion forums.
MangaFox continues to host some licensed and unlicensed scanlations, but it's not clear how long that will continue.
It looks like the next step is for paid subscription websites to offer licensed scanlations, but things are still moving in that direction.
How does this affect you? Where will you get your latest and greatest manga?
How does this affect the Library? Will there be more manga published in English now that fewer people will be reading illegal translations online? Will there be more demand for the Library's collection?
