Is asking for sites with translations alright, you know... Simple text translations for specific manga, not scans.

Peace. V

Bah comics are comics regardless where they're from

Anyway just so everyone knows this but while it's illegal to put up entire pages, it's perfectly legal to put up panels for educational or journalistic purposes.

So I'm allowed to scan a page, edit it to demonstrate something and post it?

No, what you're allowed to do is scan a panel or two on a page and comment on it. Whole pages are illegal if I'm not mistaken.

I wholeheartedly concur. I'm sick of the closed minds of Japanese animation/comic fanboys. If it's a story told with drawings, it's either comic or a manga depending on which language you happen to speak. The same goes with anime and cartoons.

actually, yes it is a crime as it infringes on the copyright laws underwhich the manga has been published.

It is theft as you are in effect stealing the product
