Hi, I'm new here. Pardon my intrusion to the community :)
I used to buy all the mangas that I read back in my homecountry despite the sluggish translation. But since I'm studying overseas and my allowance is a meager $200/month, and the cheapest manga is $10, I can't buy all the mangas that I read, not to mention, limited titles of manga are available. Compared to that, internet subscription is only $4/month. So I only bought Tsubasa Chronicles because of the nice cover and read the rest online. I'm not trying to justify myself and I know I'm wrong. But I don't care about piracy. And piracy surely wont cease to exist.
Heck, I have never even bought an original DVD before.
