Manga Rock, one of the most popular manga piracy sites & app is now completely shut down, as the online reading feature has been disabled. All the titles have been linked to the official source. Now, when you will visit each title’s info, you can no longer read scanlations.
Well, this all started back in September 2019, when the first news of Manga Rock shutdown broke on the J-Cast news website. Then after a week, Manga Rock developers confirmed its shutdown & announced the launch of Mr. Comics platform.
On the official blog of Mr. Comics, they shared the complete journey of the Manga Rock platform. They also revealed the reason for its shutdown, which says that Manga artists work hard to create engaging content, but if it will be available for free, it negates their hard work and efforts.
That results in fewer sales of manga & generate less revenue for publishers. Also, it gives no support to creators to further create new content. Moving forward, in February 2020, reading scanlations was no longer possible.
On April 21, the online reading feature was disabled from the platform, which has left many fans into sadness as Manga Rock was their most beloved platform for reading Manga. The complete shutdown of Manga Rock has prompted users to look for its alternatives.
