Weekly Shonen Jump wants to know the pirate sites: the survey on Manga Plus

by Harry Brown

The fight against piracy is a phenomenon that Japan has been dealing with for years to limit editorial damage. Shueisha, one of the giants of the manga sector, has in fact opened the Manga Plus service a few years ago to promote the dissemination of the best chapters, even those of a weekly type, in a completely legal way.

In this way, in fact, it has become possible to read also from Italy some of the most popular titles of the Japanese comics scene such as ONE PIECE, Dragon Ball Super and many others. Unfortunately, currently, the manga available in the service are not yet available in Italian, but Shueisha is working to expand the service to an ever-increasing audience.

Anyway, in the past few hours Manga Plus appeared a piracy survey, complete with a special section in which you are asked to list the sites where you can read manga in a not really legal way. A couple of users have criticized Shueisha’s practice of tracing pirate sites so subtly, however the survey is not limited to this but also to investigate the reasons why readers go to these portals.

And you, on the other hand, have you participated in this survey? Tell us your opinion about it, as usual, with a comment in the appropriate box below.
