VIZ Media Licensed Series Dropped

February 11th, 2012

 

Dear MangaStream supporter,

 

It's with a heavy heart that I make the following announcement. MangaStream will no longer be releasing the following series:

 

- Naruto

- Bleach

- One Piece

- Hunter x Hunter

- Katekyo Hitman Reborn

- Claymore

- D.Gray-man

 

VIZ Media has demanded that we end our scanlation work for all of the above. This comes despite our best efforts to pursuade fans into supporting official distributors by being the only group to actively prevent an archive from forming on their website through the removal of chapters that are older than a couple weeks. They've succeeded in little more than invoking inconvenience to the community as their digital magazine missed the mark; it runs several issues behind and only features 3 of the above series. So long as their product continues to be slow, awkward and inferior to something a ragtag group of nobodies can churn out in a few hours - fans will continue to look to scanlation groups and aggregators for their weekly fix.

 

The aggressive and escalating nature of their threats have forced our hand into removing the content. MangaStream will no longer be posting full scanlations for any of the aforementioned series, we will instead focus our efforts onto the series we do that are not licensed by VIZ Media (you can assume everything currently on our directory will be continued).

 

Our final message to our loyal JUMP audience will be this:

Thank you for supporting us over the past two years and making Mangastream your home away from home. It was a pleasure sharing our time with fans who were just as passionate and dedicated as we were.

 

Although MangaStream will no longer be hosting any of the Jump series, if it's something our fanbase is interested in, we're considering leveraging our connections to bring you accurate spoiler summaries for the Jump chapters as early as possible. We know this isn't much, but hope it can whet your appetite until the dozens of aggregators release the official Jump chapters on Wednesday.

 

I guess it's time to move on then... It's a shame, really.

I really enjoyed MangaStream scanlations though, they were always really, really reliable and pretty fast to be uploaded

 

Though, it just makes one wonder, is crunchyroll the mastermind beind this? I know them and VIZ Media have gone negotations about putting manga on crunchy site aswell as korean drama series and anime...
