Shueisha Attacks Owners of Pirated Manga Sites

Shueisha Attacks Owners of Pirated Manga Sites

Shueisha continues its attacks against manga piracy. This time, they sent multiple DMCA requests to Cloudflare, targeting several pirated manga sites.

Shueisha’s purpose in these requests is to obtain personal information from the people who run these sites. Analyzing the list of pirated manga sites in Shueisha’s sights, we see small sites with few views, but which publish manga leaks.

On the list, there is also a huge website from Vietnam called Truyenqqvn, which has 43 million visits and is the 14th most popular website in all of Vietnam! Well… he was. When you access the link now, you will find the following message:

“This site is closed. Thank you, have a nice day.”
