The reaction of Sankaku Complex users to the scathing comments of 2ch on the recent closure of One Manga has found its way back to 2ch and incited an even more biting response.

Their response to the closure of One Manga and the impudent reaction of Sankaku Complex users angry at having to use more inconvenient sources of pirated manga filled scores of threads across 2ch, and was soon picked up by any number of 2ch-centric sites.

A representative selection of their comments is translated below:

“You lot are always begging ‘give us the zip! give us the zip!’ – why is it now you suddenly start acting like you’re normal?”

“Oh come on, this is a fantastic business chance for publishers. If they don’t go for commercial digital distribution now they really are finished.”

“In America the censorship regime makes them change cigarettes into candy! How many mangaka and publishers are there interested in making that level of change!?”

“I was reading the latest Naruto in the convenience store – are the foreigners jealous of me? Forgive me, Sasuke…”

“‘We want to buy but we can’t! We’re making manga popular the world over!’ Die.”

“Just buy it and read you dirty misers!”

“Do these people feel any sense of guilt over what they’re doing to creators?”

“Serves you right, foreigners! It makes no sense at all for these manga to be available on the net in English first. Stop enjoying them before us Japanese even get them!”

“You guys sound pretty intellectual translated into English, don’t you now?”

“‘Ha Ha Ha – Serves you right!’ – someone translate this and tell it to them.”

“Pirates really do think the same the world over.”

“Impudent thieves.”

“‘Foreigner 1: Do all Japanese hate foreigners? Or is it just a minority? Or just 2ch?
Foreigner 2: Japs hate us all. Even the babies!
Foreigner 3: 2ch is how the majority of Japs think. They are polite in front of others, but behind your back they are secretly insulting you. Japs are xenophobes!’

Pretty amazing that they go this far to dress themselves up as victims.”

“It seems people on the Internet always develop these persecution complexes – whatever the country.”

“‘Foreigner 4: 2ch is not representative of all Japanese! I like Japan.
Foreigner 5: Sorry. I like Japan too. The Japanese are just angry that we’re ripping them off.
Foreigner 6: 2ch is the scum of Japan.’

The guys who understand really do understand!”

“Foreigner 6 – you are a genius.”

“‘Those Jump buyers are complete tools for waiting – hurry up and give us the zip!’

‘I don’t want to buy Jump just for One Piece. I’m glad they get uploaded at the same time as its release. I can keep up with what’s happening in this thread too.’

‘In this damn heat I don’t want to go out and read Jump – hurry up with the zip!’

‘It may only be $2 but it’s a nuisance once you’ve read it. Why won’t they just sell us One Piece without the rest?’

This is from 2ch’s Shonen Jump board.”

“Maybe this thread will be translated and become an article over there? Are you reading foreigners? If you want to read manga, be sure to learn Japanese!”

“With the market for digital manga coming up, these illegal sites are no good any more. Rawpara made $30,000, how much were those guys making…”

“Read your own country’s comics, bastards.”

“It’s a real mystery to me why these damn foreigners can’t get over the fact that you can’t just be reading all this stuff for free on a website.”

“Manga overseas costs $10 a volume though – way too much.”

“But American comics cost a fortune in Japan too…”

“It really is expensive over there. In spite of the fact the paper is shoddy rubbish…”

“Even the guys reading manga are always going on about JAP this and JAP that. Just liking manga doesn’t mean you like Japanese, I see. Japanese are really despised aren’t they?”

“Foreigners are just greedy swine by nature – that’s why they think manga is free.”

“I looked at the responses of the Sankaku inhabitants (not that I’m lumping them together with all foreigners) – pretty amazing.

It’s expensive, 99% of manga is crap, it’s translated because Japanese are uploading it, because they ripped off western culture – their excuses were all on that level. The worst ones are the ones going on about racism or xenophobia though.”

“You hairy foreigners should shut up and wait for your own great mangaka.”

“Compared to Japan and its complete absence of a digital publication market, isn’t consciousness about this much higher over there? Amazon have Kindle and stuff…”

“There are already all kinds of pirated manga on the American Kindle. They’re a real pack of thieves.”

“If all manga fans the world over start thinking manga=free, the manga industry is finished.”

“Even in Japan a lot of young people think that, about games and music too. I hope they really crack down on these sites.”

“Why do these foreigners act so high and mighty when they are reading for free?”

“This reminds me of that damn Rapelay fiasco.”

“Thanks to that we got worked over. Seriously, die you filthy foreign scum.”

“1. Foreigners pirate our manga and develop a taste for it.

2. Foreign big-wigs say ‘This content is violent! Ban it, Japan!’

This is a real problem. If publishers adapt their publications to foreign markets then OK, but just translating the original and spreading it amongst foreigners is a problem!

Do you understand this you dirty foreign scum?”

“Don’t those white pigs comprehend the concept of a thief being ashamed of being caught?”

“Blaming the victims of your own crimes, shifting responsibility to anyone else but you, justifying your own criminality. Total scum, every last one of them.”

    It seems they think that no Japanese pirate manga/anime/games at all and it's all the fault of us damn foreigners.

    While I don't condone piracy (and my large paid manga/dvd/figure collection will attest to my support of the industry), sometimes it's the only way English speakers can get access to some titles (in particular ones that have been dumbed down and edited to reach mainstream America's level).

    So in the end, if there weren't Japanese providing the raws, there would be much less floating around in the internet.

    Japanese babes dont even like Japanese guys, hence the declining birth rates/marriages. They are bored waiting for them to come out of their rooms, so they just hook up with the first foreigner they see. Theirs a reason why Japanese babes think its "cool" if you can bag a Foreigner.

    The fact of the matter is this. SCANLATING MANGA IS WRONG. Plain and simple. No if ands or buts. Now as I say this I realize how big of hypocrite I am seeing as how I am not exempt from downloading pirated material in the forms of manga and anime. Do I feel guilty...meh~...maybe a bit. Without a doubt my guilt stems from the fact that I KNOW that what I am doing is wrong. Why do I do it? It's been stated already. $20 for a volume of anime is goddamn ridiculous, not to mention that 90% of the shit that I want to read is censored to the point that it makes me want to rage.

    I find the comments that some of the people from this website, as well as those on 2ch to be highly offensive. Guess what? It's fucking manga! Both parties need to grow the fuck up.

    In the end I'm glad that Onemanga has been shut down, but in now way shape or form will this put an end to scanlations.

    but if we grew up...then we shouldn't be reading manga. Scanning is never wrong. Is it wrong to share books? Is it wrong to share movies? Is it wrong to share video games? If any of that is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

    That it is.

    "I find the comments that some of the people from this website, as well as those on 2ch to be highly offensive. Guess what? It's fucking manga! Both parties need to grow the fuck up."

    It has nothing really to do with manga. It is "the west" (basically the U.S.A.) vs Japan. This is tame compared to what it would be if it was Korea or China on the receiving end of 2chans "wrath".

    The artist should set up a donation page where westerners who read their manga can pay them directly for their work since the publishers basically removed from the equation.

    “This reminds me of that damn Rapelay fiasco.”

    I hope he/she realizes this was in fact a result of their own spineless politicians that it got so out of hand.

    It blew over and became no longer interesting after a few weeks out here in the west. Hell it never actually made the news in Canada.

    “If all manga fans the world over start thinking manga=free, the manga industry is finished.”

    Considering the western manga market is a tiny proportion of overall sales, I think the manga thieves in Japan are having a far larger effect on the manga situation then the western ones.

    What I mean is, remove the westerners from the equation totally, the manga industry would still be in the shitter.

    Anyway what needs to happen is for 4chan, 2chan and sankaku to get together somewhere and have a death match.

    Anyway it is trolls (2chan) trolling trolls (sankaku + 4chan sankaku members and anons) trolling trolls (2chan) trolling...

    Humans are idiots.
    We as a race have successfully made it so sharing art can hurt us.
    So that crossing a border that doesnt naturally exist hurts someone.

    Money=the biggest waste of our time we have ever invented.It makes all these things that would be simple into something twice as hard.

    Its not like they ever scanned Twilight Books and translated them in Japanese.. yea its only all us corrupt foreigners actually doing what humans do...

    One guy got it right. Who the hell are buying the Manga Raws and putting them online for people to Translate? Yea Japanese people.

    I dont even understand some of these complaints. Some say that we get Translated Manga even before they get Raw Manga (impossible). Some are angry about scans while some are angry that they are in english? wtf? Do they even know what issue they are angry about anymore? Not going to lump everyone but some of them on 2ch are obviously xenophobes. Hell, even Square Enix and other game companies went on the record saying they are catering more games to foreigners lately because of xenophobic Japanese. Obviously Japanese Fans were angry about it and called them Sell Outs, cause humans dont like to admit their flaws, these guys are just companies who want to make $ no matter where they can get it.

    Manga Sales are going down just the same way Book Sales are going down all over the World. Simply put, people are losing interest in Books. Todays World is much faster and their are quicker and easier ways of obtaining information. Books (like Manga) are a dying breed. Other Publishers/Authors attribute that to the times, while Japanese ones blame it on other people. Wee.

    If they can find some reasonable Pay to Read Digital Distribution Service that both sides can agree on, make that, and call it a day.

    Was I supposed to care what 2chan has to say about anything?

    Heck I regularly dump on half of the guys here myself :)

    Manga sells or it doesn't sell on the strength of the thinking of the people that make it. If their sales suck, it's not our (the market) fault.

    I speak English, hence I am not about to read manga in Japanese. But my money's just as good to get. If they don't WANT my money, fine.

    The internet though has no borders and cares not for borders. If someone translates it, it becomes available to anyone that wants it.

    Refusing to sell to me only accomplishes one thing. You don't get any of my money.

    this is sooo ridicilous !! they should be glad that we are scanlating mangas really.. i read && find new mangas at those siting sites like mangafox or onemanga.. when i like it i always go and buy the manga so they should see it as an art of promotion.. yeah i also feel guilty for them at the same time cause there are ppl who publish their works without their approval but they didn´t have to scold us "foreignors" that bad u know that is just RUDE.. i always thought japanese ppl were nice and all but most of them are really only twofaced ppl -.-
    i´m really pissed off right now !! so u know what? i´m not going to buy any manga anymore they can kiss my a** ^^ if they also take mangafox down then i´m gonna go and write a complaint to those mangakas.. just what do they expect from us? those hosting sites are the only way for us to find new manga and read mangas that are rare.. u know some book stores don´t even sell them so what are we supposed to do? i´m gonna go and enjoy my last time on onemanga till it gets closed down :´( thank u onemanga for every scanlation u made and everything u made for us !! we really appreciate it :´(
