I buy the printed volume, but I also like to have a scanlated version. I had a tough time deciding between the two, but I went ahead and picked printed volume since I have so many.

the feeling of holding the book and reading it before you fall asleep.... =) I have to admit that the english licensed version does not retain the originality like they replace the sound effect on the background and some editing is so horrible....

I do but scanners do a better job in translation IMO.

I voted for scans too.... I would think it would be predictable.... I mean, I don't want to wait for slow American releases, and I also have to use my dictionary a few times if I try to read original Japanese prints (and I'm completely gone if it's Manhwa) so I'd rather read scans.... Plus when they eventually do release here I can put them away in protective wrapping for my collection so they don't get damaged.... I've never read most "physical" copies of manga/manhwa I own.... I'm completely satisfied with the scans....

I think I know why Scanlations won. They are free, and similar concept between sub and dub in anime. Most prefer the sub.

Though I voted for Scanlations I now change my opinion to "printed volume RAW Japanese" since I am now fluent in Japanese.
