People like to think of manga piracy platforms as just little guys trying to show love to their favorite series. The site mentioned here brags about their fancy office, free catered lunches, and free company retreats. They’re far less scrappy than the publishers they leech from.

A fair question to be had from that is “if they’re so profitable, why can’t publishers be that profitable?” The team that develops that site/app is a development studio. They use the popularity of their manga piracy platform to get clients, and funnel 0 money back to authors.

Also the fact that they ARE operating illegally means they bypass all legal and business-related red tape of contract negotiation. They profit well only because they disregard everything by the book, cutting out the creators and people who made the manga possible to begin with.

They can only afford to look so legitimate because of how illegitimate and greedily they operate. Frankly I find it disgusting.

Isn’t all the ad money they get from weird cyber stalking virus programs and anime porn games?

Maybe it’s all a facade to look more legitimate. It could be a coworking space or stock photos. But since their whole strategy is tricking people into thinking they’re legit, I think it’s only fair to also take them at their word when it makes them look bad.

You can get some pretty killer profit margins on stolen goods.

They don't even translate things themselves. They either take from the official translation or rely on/steal from enthusiastic amateurs.

This is such BS. Industry on both sides in far more dire straights and these goons living it up off their hard work.
