Two of the most popular manga sites, Mangastream and Jaimini’s Box, providing updated Weekly Shonen Jump comics such as One Piece, My Hero Academia, and many more have officially stopped their service, which means you will no longer be able to see or read any WSJ releases.
Mangastream is just one of the websites releasing digital scans of the latest manga chapters each week. Since the beginning of their website, they have been constantly fighting legal issues with the official publishers.
Now, it seems like Mangastream has decided to end the journey as they took down their website. Following the departure of Mangastream in manga distribution, Jaimini’s Box also decided to end providing scans of WSJ titles on their website.
The unexpected ending of Mangastream receives a lot of reactions from many users on Reddit and Twitter. Most of them are sad about the decision but they respect the decisions made by the Mangastream teams.
I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the long run
I remember reading the fishman island arc of OP the 1000 blood war arc of bleach and the war of naruto and that was the beginning for me as a manga fan
Thank you #mangastream pic.twitter.com/9mnXBb2Gcj

#Mangastream is down for good. At the rate at which the anime industry has been getting more professional, this seems inevitable. Still, we should remember the hard labor of all these volunteers who worked to translate all this content that grew the market in the first place.

Even though it was illegals translations I have used #mangastream for over 10 years. It was my first site to ever let me experience manga. The team put in a lot of effort for there translations and I thank them for the work. Can't deny them.
