Some of you might have already heard about rumors of Ceasing Letters from Korean & Japanese companies. Over the years, MU got lots of complaints from various companies to stop activity on this site. Companies like ADV, Daiwon, Dark Horse, Kadokawa, Tokyopop, Young Champ, VIZ etc. have sent us a fair ammount of letters and emails trying to make us go offline. We ignored them most of the time, or we’d just send them a Cease and Desist message like the guys from ThePirateBay have done with numeruos companies. Well our ignorance has reached its limit, it is time we comply to their requirements and shutdown, because if we don’t, they’ll launch a lawsuit against us, and to be frank, none of us has money nor the guts to put up with them, plus in the end it would be a meaningless fight, since you all know who would win(they of course). The staff was of course down when the final decision was made, I mean we all had fun here, we have you, the users/readers/viewers to thank for that, without you, this site would not have been the same, thanks also go to Mindwerks, the guys that hosted and put up with us up till now, they are really nice guys, thanks also go to the contributors to this site, Devin for hosting our manga archive and all, last but not least the authors deserve some thanks too, so *clapclap* for us. Well the site will be online for a couple of days, then the final shutdown message will be given, after that we won’t be responsible for what happens, so be careful everyone. As a parting gift we show you some of the letter they’ve sent us, you can curse them later on.
