Black Lagoon, Hellsing Creators Discuss Illegal Uploads



Rei Hiroe, the manga creator best known for Black Lagoon, wrote in his Twitter account on Saturday about discovering that someone "smugly" posted all of his manga in a compressed ZIP file. He then, apparently tongue-in-cheek, said that he wishes that this person would contract pancreatic cancer or something similar.

Upon reading this, a fellow manga creator named Kazuki Kotobuki replied that he wished that the unauthorized uploader would step outside and get struck by lightning, hit by a meteorite, or some other "constructive" form of death.

Hellsing manga creator Kouta Hirano then chipped in by writing that the uploader should contract a bizarre, previously unknown disease — therefore, the disease would be named after the uploader in medical journals, and that would be how the uploader would be remembered for posterity. Hiroe retweeted both comments with his own comments of approval.

Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) manga creator Yana Toboso posted a blog entry criticizing unauthorized videos and downloads last Sunday, and that triggered long discussions on multiples forums in multiple languages. Other creators, such as Abnormal Physiology Seminar creator TAGRO, expressed their support for Toboso, while users debated her stance and the legal issues involved.
