The Write Life

Seducing hearts, one story at a time, Author - Crystal R. Martin

I have an ethical question today.... Pick your favorite manga fandom and imagine that someone was selling a fake release several volumes ahead of where it actually is in the release schedule. What are you to do? Is this okay? People are being cheated into thinking their getting an official, but it's just a fan-made translated copy.

It irks me because portraying it as the real is dishonest, and beyond that I feel sorry for the saps that don't know...


So again I ask what would you do? After deciding what you would do scroll down to see what I decided....

Okay, so I blew the whistle...I emailed the actual company, and sent them a link to the site. I also asked on the site if it was a cheap fan copy because the release isn't even close.
