Is MangaTown back and unavailable?

MangaTown will conduct an actual survey of the current situation and introduce everyone to alternative sites and other resources.

What is Manga Town?

MangaTown is an illegal website established as a successor to MangaMura.

Like Mangamura, it had been uploading manga illegally and repeatedly earning advertising revenue.

However, it was shut down in 2018 after the operator of Mangamura was arrested.

Currently, Manga Town is still unavailable for viewing.

Although Manga Town has been closed, it has been revived and closed repeatedly.

Research on the current status of Manga Town

When we visited with the latest URL of the site, we could not read the manga and jumped to

It can be said that Manga Town has become a scam advertising site.

Risks of Manga Town

Copyright Infringement

Using illegal sites such as Manga Town reduces the author's income.

Unlike e-book sites that have obtained the ABJ mark, illegal sites such as MangaTown do not pay copyright fees to manga artists no matter how many manga they read.

On Twitter, cartoonists often appeal to people not to read manga on illegal sites.

In the case of Manga-mura, which is believed to be operated by the same operator as Manga-town, the total damage suffered by manga artists and publishers is said to be 300 billion yen.

No matter how many manga are read on illegal sites like Mangatown, not only does it not generate income for manga artists, but also sequels to their works are never created.

If you really like the work, make sure to read it on legitimate sites that have obtained the ABJ mark.

Malware Damage

Internal information on your computer is transmitted without your permission.

Illegal sites such as Manga Town may contain viruses called malware.

Illegal sites such as MangaTown are known for their many advertisements, but the advertisements may contain malware, and by clicking on them, you may be infected with a virus or download a harmful program without permission.

Worms, Trojan horses, spyware, and keyloggers are the most common types of malware.

Malware can also transmit keyboard actions without permission or send information inside the computer to the outside world.

Leakage of personal information increases the risk of malicious fraud.

Mining Damage

The terminal's resources are used without permission to generate virtual currency.

Illegal sites such as MangaTown are not only subject to viruses, but also to mining scripts.

Mining scripts use the resources of the user's terminal to generate virtual currency without permission.

While it is unpleasant to have virtual currency generated on one's terminal without permission, one can also expect damage such as battery drain and huge communication volume.

A virus software company has pointed out that Manga-mura, which is believed to be operated by the same company as Manga Town, was actually mining using users' terminals.

Mining damage can occur not only on PCs but also on smartphones.

Leakage of personal information|Possibility of fraudulent damage such as fictitious billing

E-book sites that have obtained the ABJ mark are strict in their handling of personal information.

Illegal sites such as MangaTown are illegal to operate, so there is a high possibility that your personal information will be used for criminal purposes.

Even if an illegal site like MangaTown does not ask you to enter your personal information, there is a possibility that your personal information will be leaked due to a virus infection.

In addition, there are cases where a warning message appears as if the site is infected with a virus, and the user is charged a hefty fee to remove the virus.

In addition, malware can leak personal information and result in fictitious billing.
