Risks and Dangers of Free Piracy of Manga

To begin with, operating a pirate site like Manga Japan is illegal. You may be subject to penalties.

As a case in point, on September 24, 2019, the operator of a pirate site called "Mangamura" was arrested.

On June 2, 2021, he was convicted by the Fukuoka District Court of three years in prison, a fine of 10 million yen, and an additional fine of approximately 62.57 million yen.

Nevertheless, pirate sites continue to operate because they can earn large amounts of income from advertising and other sources.

If you use pirate sites because you can read for free, you risk the following

Dangers of pirate sites

  1. Virus infection
  2. Leading to malicious sites
  3. Leakage of personal information
  4. Drain of battery and capacity

This section describes the dangers of each of these pirate sites.

1. danger of virus infection

Simply accessing pirate sites such as Manga Japan can cause your computer or smartphone to become infected with a virus and break.

As a result, you may have to pay for repairs, which in some cases may end up costing more than buying the manga. It is safer to use official sites than pirate sites.

2. risk of being directed to malicious sites

In addition, pirate sites such as Manga Japan display a large number of advertisements.

Just by clicking on those ads, you may be asked for money for some reason.

3. leakage of personal information

Membership registration screens appear frequently on pirate sites such as Manga Japan, but becoming a member of a pirate site is extremely dangerous.

In many cases, pirate sites misuse the personal information obtained through membership registration.

For example, there is a risk that your credit card information will be used without your knowledge, resulting in unaccounted-for expenses.

Social networking accounts are no exception.

Battery and point drain

Simply accessing pirate sites can be a significant drain on battery and data capacity.

This is because some pirate sites, such as Manga Japan, contain scripts that generate virtual currency on their own just by accessing them.

Generating virtual currency consumes a large amount of battery and data space.

As a result, there are cases where the CPU usage reaches 100% and the device stops working or the battery runs out.

Safe sites to replace & succeed Manga Japan

Here we will check out safe sites that can replace Manga Japan.

Comic Seymour

コミックシーモア

Comic Seymour is recommended as an alternative site to Manga Japan.

Comic Seymour is an authorized distribution service operated by NTT Solmare Corporation, a subsidiary of NTT West.

The service has an 18-year track record since its launch in 2004, and has acquired the ABJ Mark, which approves the use of its content, so it can be used with peace of mind.

Unlike "Manga Japan", "Comic Seymour" is a legitimate e-book service and offers more than 15,000 manga for free.

In addition, when reading manga, Manga Japan can only be read with the application, but with Comic Seymour, manga can be read not only with the application but also in the browser.

Manga Kingdom

まんが王国

As an alternative to the dangerous and illegal Manga Japan site, we also recommend Manga Kingdom, which operates safely and in compliance with the law.

Manga Kingdom boasts one of the largest manga collections in Japan, with over 3,000 titles available for free.

Manga Kingdom is a legal site with an ABJ mark, so you will not be charged under copyright law for reading manga for free.

Another attraction of Manga Kingdom is that points are redeemed at the time of purchase or use.

Since the point redemption rate per day is up to 50%, we recommend using Manga Kingdom for bulk purchases.

In addition, there are many services that allow you to purchase manga at a discount, such as "Visiting Point," which gives you one point per day, and "Omikuji," which can be drawn twice a day.

Ameba Manga

Amebaマンガ

Unlike the illegal Manga Japan, Ameba Manga is safe and inexpensive.

The management company of Ameba Manga is CyberAgent, Inc. which provides "ABEMA", "Ameba Blog" and "Gramble Fantasy".

Unlike Manga Japan, not only is the operating company well established, but it has also acquired the ABJ mark, so it can be used with peace of mind.

Ameba Manga offers more than 400,000 manga titles, more than 1,000 of which can be read for free.

In addition, you can save on up to 100 paid manga by using the 40% off coupon that you receive just for registering as a member.

U-NEXT

U-NEXT

U-NEXT is another recommended alternative to Manga Japan.

While Manga Japan only allows users to read manga, U-NEXT allows users to watch anime, movies, and drama videos and read magazines in addition to manga.

U-NEXT is a site that requires a monthly membership, but there is a 31-day free trial.

With the free trial, you can not only watch as many movies and read as many magazines as you want, but you can also get 600 yen worth of points for free.
