NarutoFan is forced to change domain name

This week the popular Naruto community, Narutofan, has been forced to subside by the all powerful Viz Media. According to site owner "Tazmo", Viz Media had argued that the Narutofan domain could easily be confused for an official Naruto website and hence take potential traffic from the official Viz site.

It comes as a surprise since Viz have apparently supported Narutofan over the years by granting it's staff access to various Naruto events and sending gifts to it's owners to give away as prizes.

The sites forums have since changed to and the main site has been moved to

One Manga to take down all its scans

One Manga webmaster, Zabi, announced on thursday that they would be removing all the manga from their site.

The news came only weeks after major manga publishers had come together to tackle the problem of illegal scanlation (translated manga scans) sites. These publishers have reportedly threatened legal action against 30 such sites.

One Manga have obviously, and understandably, bowed to the pressure placed on them. It's unlikely however, that the site will close down completely. They have a thriving forum community with a staggering 100,000 members, so there's plenty of room for development.

Naruto Chapter 486 - Fists!

Naruto Chapter 486 has been released tonight and I don't know why I am up this late, dammit!! The chapter is really more of the same old stuff, Naruto says 'I'm your friend', 'I'll never give up on you', etc etc, yes, we know you are devoted to Sasuke. Thankfully Sasuke asks the question we've all been wanting to hear too - 'Why the f**k do you care about me so much??!' - good on him.

You can read the chapter here at mangastream, N-joy! - Chapter 486

Japanese whaling boats vs animal rights

Ever read about the ongoing war between Japanese whalers and animal rights groups? Basically the Japanese are hauling in large amounts of whales to put on their plates and the activist groups aren't too happy. I think the main issue was that the whailing boats were going outside their territory and into Austrailian waters but I may be wrong.

Anyway, I found it hilarious when I read about the latest news on the 'war'. The Japanese whaling boats have been kitted out to fight the annoying activists with military sonic devices that must create some sort of shockwave to repel them and they also have powerful water cannons onboard so they can spray some activists off their feet. Personally, I'd love to be on that whaling boat controlling these devices.

The animal rights groups retaliate by throwing stink bombs on board the whaling vessel and trying to tangle the propellers of the Japanese boat by putting ropes into the water.

It was also reported recently that one of the Japanese vessels 'accidentaly' collided with a million dollar, high-tech, fibreglass vessel belonging to the activists.
