Hey. So, we know that more and more manga have been disappearing due to being licensed; however, it has mostly been more popular shounen manga, etc. Things like Naruto and Bleach and all those really popular ones. But I've recently noticed that those companies are cracking down on yaoi manga aswell. A lot of those classics we know as must-reads for beginner yaoi readers. specifically Kizuna and Finder have disappeared off of manga-reading sited in the last few weeks. I'm really sad, because they wont be available to beginners and the more experienced reader alike anymore. Yeah, you can simply buy them but a lot of people wont. sad So, my question to you guys is how do you feel about this licensing issue? no

I'm annoyed. Gimme back my free manga. mad

And then I feel like a BAD PERSON because mangaka need to eat too, and we should all start buying because reading licensed manga for free online is stealing a person's bread and butter. no

Which makes me annoyed at myself as well. But I still feel annoyed at the copyright crackdown.

So a cycle of annoyance and not good feelings. In a economic and long term and nonpersonal sense, though, this copyright crackdown is definitely a good step in the right direction. There might be hiccups, but it's overall positive in the long run, I should think. eyes

I'm still annoyed though. cry
