Full release from MangaStream.com

It was bound to happen eventually, I'm just surprised it didn't happen sooner, especially since Viz no offers a subscription service where you can get their series up-to date and in English on line (because who doesn't love Viz translations?).

It's a brave new world of actually having to pay for things on the internet. There are a handful of other sites that host Bleach, but so we aren't shit out of luck yet, but one has to assume that it's only a matter of time before they eventually pull the series as well.

When One Manga went down, I looked to MangaStream for new chapters. Until now, it was either that or Manga Reader for new stuff every week. And this just happens. It was bound to happen, that much is certain, & it was fun while it lasted. It's only a matter of time before we something like this again.

Eventually they will be forced to offer a free model, i say. People will simply pirate their releases even if they shut everyone else down. That's how it works with One Piece anime now (Funimation has day-and-time releases of the anime, subbed), and Crunchyroll does something similar with Naruto, Bleach, Fairy Tail, and others, but what just ends up happening is that people just pirate those releases

I'll be willing to settle for "official" translations (despite my many issues with them. The white cat in Fairy Tail's name is Charla not Carla, godammnit Crunchyroll), so long as they are ad-supported.

Although i imagine part of the problem is that Viz is forced to pay a good deal of money for the rights to release these things, so they cannot afford to leave them off ad-supported. What is needed is for companies like Shueisha to realize that the rest of the world isn't nearly as law-abiding (or willing to put up with egregiously high prices) as Japan, and that they will simply have to settle for less revenue from licensors if they want to reach a broader market.

Well, MangaStream seems to be fine as they are continuing to host new chapters of Viz-owned series just fine. Unless they take 'em down a week later or something, I dunno.
