This is very unjust!
Why mangaupdates that doesn't earn anything for what they do and not the reading sites that earn money and even have published works in english there?
They should go for them and not for this site.
And if they keep doing this it'll only affect negatively to them.
At last I think so, because if sites like mangaupdates or scanlators didn't exist I wouldn't be buying manga. And more importantly I wouldn't be buying manga in english since my native language is spanish and without sites like this one, I wouldn't have gotten used to read in english.
I don't understand why they do these things, if mangaupdates or scanlators weren't there I'm sure that japan wouldn't sell as much as manga internationally as it does now, because I at last wouldn't buy a thing I don't understand, but if I read it in english and I like it I would buy it in japanese to support the author, and the same in english, if I liked a manga I read and they publish it I'd buy it too, and I'm sure most of people do that.
Why don't they see that the ones who are reading manga now from the scanlators will be the ones that will buy manga to them in the future?
They are selling to fans and mangaupdates is were most of fans gather to give their opinions about their preferences, about if they like this or if they don't, this site could even be their market research are they blind?
I'm sorry for this long post but I got pretty mad
