Update on NarutoBuzz
We received this from a staff member of NarutoBuzz:

"For a previous release NarutoBuzz featured the work of another scantlation team (slighty touched up by us), we sincerly apologize for any confusion that we may have caused, we did credit the team however we apologize for not obtaining proper permission, NarutoBuzz will avoid such behavior in the future and sincerly apologize to the Scantlation Group whose work was featured. We also thank MangaUpdates for reconsidering our Ban and promise to be as Ethical as possible in the future. We have been greatly humbled by this experience and thank everyone for allowing us to further serve the Naruto Community."

As a result of this formal apology to the original scanlators, Mangaupdates will again report NarutoBuzz releases.

It has come to our attention that this group is actually stealing scans from other scanlators. The original scanlators came and complained to us. After attaining proof of this, we first attempted to email the admin of this group, but since we have not gotten a response, we have decided to not allow releases from this group any further.

We're sorry for any inconvenience. Baka-Updates does not allow stolen scanlations to be shown on the site.
