It has been over a year since the last time this site has had any new content. I’m sorry to say that it looks like Manga Shouten may be done for.

The Mediafire account that was used to host all of our scanlated chapters was axed. As of this moment the files are no longer available to download. It’ll probably remain this way for quite a while, unless someone has a suggestion on where to upload them.

In any case, it was fun while it lasted. We regret that we weren’t able to provide more of the Dragonball series from the crisp and clean Kanzenban. But who knows what the future holds. Until we may meet again.


Time for something a little different!

Fans of Castlevania: Harmony of Despair may enjoy this release. Did you know there were 11 short 4-panel comics made for this game? Well, we’ve translated them for you!

Enjoy the release!

Bleach 423

You might think that Manga Shouten is dead. And… you’d be partially right. But Iyou did a translation of Chapter 423 and we whipped up a scanlation of the chapter.

So go download it and enjoy. 🙂

Merry Christmas to everyone out there!

As many of you visiting this website know, Manga Toshokan was forced to remove pretty much all the Japanese manga scanlations on their site. As a result, all of the “read online” links on Manga Shouten are broken until further notice.

It deeply saddens us that the pressure is on and that scanlation sites are being forced to either shut down or remove much of their content. We here at Manga Shouten hope that either a middle ground can be found somehow, or that at least a few sites are allowed to remain. We feel that online scanlations help introduce different series to people that they would have otherwise never read before (and thus increase sales). It would be a shame to lose that ability.

As for our releases, the download links will remain up for as long as possible. And if/when we find another site that will allow it, we will get our releases back up for online viewing as well. If anyone knows of another alternative (One Manga did not accept our releases, Manga Helpers accepted it but never made it public for some reason) please leave a comment and we will work as fast as possible to get them back up.

DB Chapter 201

Are We Dead?

By now most people who have been visiting this site has noticed a complete lack of updates. Is Manga Shouten dead?  Far from it!  We are, however, without a translator at the moment.

Iyouboushi was doing all of the translations for every release we’ve had.  He’s been pretty busy as of late and has not had time to translate anything new.  Hence, we do not have any new updates for you, our beautifully patient public.

We here just wanted to make an update to say that while we really don’t have anything new to offer today, we are not dead.  Updates will, inevitably, come.  Eventually.
