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.
