Title: Why did viz stop the UY manga?
Post by: foxhead556 on August 23, 2010, 07:54:46 AM
Im wondering why the heck did viz stop making the UY manga into English. I believe they were making good sales off it so why stop at a good  streak?

I have been signing that petition since 2005 and Viz still has not published the rest of the UY manga

I think we have to make them an offer they can't refuse, hehehe

Many years ago, when VIZ stopped translating the UruseiYatsura manga, a group of enthusiasts began doing their own translations. They called it Project ILM (Industrial Lum in Manga). These were the scanlations that were floating around on-line for many years, and VIZ didn't complain.

This year, VIZ started taking down these scanlations. The Project ILM contributors seemed delighted, sensing this was a prelude to VIZ issuing a fully-licensed completely-translated UruseiYatsura manga set.

'Bout 6 months later now ... any news? NOPE. Not a peep out of VIZ. Nothing. Gauging the state of the world's Economies, I'd say it's a good bet that there will NOT be any new release of translated UY manga.

So, now, not only are we NOT getting any translated UY manga, but also the only translations out there have been removed from the Web.

dam sucks that we have noting but we can always keep wishing into the night sky and if we're lucky we might see a shooting star :D Come to think of it how many volumes of the return of Lum did they make? I still have the first 8 vols before they made the return of Lum. At least i think it was 8...

They can take down whatever they want but we (downloaders) can get ANYTHING from the web if we know how to search for it.

We could upload the manga volumes we have (I downloaded all the UY manga back in 2006)

Problem would be to find a decent hosting site

What do you guys think?

From all of the download sites I've visited, mediafire has the least annoyances in my opinion.
All download host sites need to have high hits in order to keep your file on the server.
another one that might never expire is probably your Windows Live Skydrive, that has up to 25GB storage but I don't know the individual file size limit, so there are your choices.

I forgot to mention about the windows skydrive is that the file size limit is 50MB and the storage is permanent

Permanent??? At least that way Viz can't ask you to remove it...

I felt it wasn't necessary to mention that detail -_-', but yes, your file is there until a company comes in and tells your to remove it.
