While some companies want to close down scanlation rings, others want to work hand-in-hand with them.

    See this is exactly what I want to see more of. Hopefully if/when more companies start doing this, those of us who can’t read Japanese very well/at all will have more options available to use beyond whatever’s at the local bookstore or piracy.

    Oh, hey! Just what we were talking about last week in the comments! Yay! But they had to start with yaoi because. . . ? Oh, well. At least it’s not pantyshot theatre.

    Anyway- you raise an interesting point. Being a scanlator is suddenly like being a hacker, huh? You might go to jail, get sued, or hired. One hell of a diceroll, that.

    I’m assuming they’re starting with Yaoi because that’s the bulk of their catalog, and where most of their money lies.

    Sure they’ve also put out stuff like Vampire Hunter D, Beserk, Trigun and Hellsing, but the majority of their titles are stuff like Princess Princess and CafĂ© Kichijoji de.
