Hello /a/,

I know this pic is fucking old, but I just want to know if the manga publishers also are against scanlations as the anime industry is in opposition to fansubs.

As you know, the Japanese anime companies have been sending cease-and-desist letters to fansubbers, and several raw uploaders have been arrested. Certainly some raw manga providers got arrested too, but unlike fansubs which are dubbed in Japanese, Japanese manga readers can't enjoy scanaltions because they don't understand manga written in English.

So I think scanlations have much less negative impact on the Japanese manga industry in terms of their domestic sales. Do you think manga publishers go hostile at scanlators?
