The service SLEEVE Plus from the publisher Shueisha allows fans to read a selection of manga legally translated into Spanish, however, much of the selection is limited to only listing the first three chapters of the work and the three most recently published, so it’s practically a service”to go to the day” instead of “read complete” a work. Of course, there are exceptions to works that are complete for reading, although this is limited to special occasions.
But today we are not here to advertise this service, but to comment on a “MANGA Plus User Survey” that you have recently started. This survey is available at this link in English, Spanish, Thai and French through the “Google Forms” tool, but there is one question in particular that stands out.
In one of the sections, the editorial department asks: «Have you ever read a manga on a pirate site?», and in the next section asks the user to specify the names of the manga piracy sites they use.
Nevertheless, apparently the editorial department wants to know why users decide to consume manga through unofficial means, since in the sixth question they question the user on the matter.
It is not the only reference to piracy that is made in the questionnaire, in the eighth question it is questioned: «What would you like to see improved in MANGA Plus?», and the first option writes: «Update compared to pirate sites is slower».
Later, in the fourteenth question, it is pointed out that users can read the entirety of a manga (English version only) on MANGA Plusand if the user answers that “I did not know, I did not know it“, then one of the options of the fifteenth question describes: «Because I read it on pirate sites».
