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.

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.

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