If it wasn't something he liked, if he didn't like his manga being out there for free, then he'd take it down...but why would he remove one of his greatest advertisements? Everything that's sold that has anything to do with Naruto, he gets a piece of. That means toys, costumes etc. Now if this was just something hidden away like some piracy thing, then he wouldn't like that at all, but as it stands, things like this site are what's making him all his money.
    You have no idea what I was talking about above there. Advertisement is one thing but NB is not advertising. You don't call it advertisement when you have the whole product for free in a site.

    In order to host a product, in this case manga and anime, the site needs to have copyright papers/documents from the owner. Viz Media holds such rights from TV Tokyo and Jump Comics. There are other sites such as Crunchyroll that are official ones but in these sites you have to pay certain charges in order to watch anime or read manga. Generally, the official sites offer anime and manga only when you pay certain amount of charges.

    I am not complaining. I love this site. However the sales of DVDs and Manga volumes decreases drastically because of sites like NB that hosts anime and manga for free. What is more you can download high quality and save it to a hard disk. That is why people won't bother to buy DVDs and manga volumes when they are released in the market. A great loss for the producers and mangaka. SO I don't call it advertising.

    P.S I have this feeling that the thread will be closed pretty soon since we talk about negative aspects of NB. So let me say something before it will be closed. It is because of sites like NB, people like me get chance to enjoy such a great anime and manga. The DVDs and manga volumes are barely available in my country. If you order in online then the cost will be like four times and will not be affordable. Those DVDs that are available in shops are affordable but like I said they are very rare. And most of the time, they do not offer new releases.

    I am really glad that there are sites like NB out here.

    At OT: Windows 8 does have some cool applications. i am enjoying them right now. :D

    I do buy legitimate software as long as I can afford them.
    lmao, honestly I find that quite hard to believe. Windows 8 being $100 is nothing, a lot of software is priced around that.

    Hmm....seems like you did not read my previous posts...Let me say it again. I would have bought it if it would cost only 100 bucks in here as well. But in reality, it would cost around $300 to $320....because they would add the tax, other government charges, shipping charges, profit and all.....I bet it would cost no less than 400 bucks when it will be available here means around Rs 35,600 when converted in my currency which is great sum. You could get a laptop with good configuration with that amount. So it's not a wise idea to spend that much amount for OS. If you order it online then it would cost even more. Blame all this to the government of my country.

    P.S There is a whole world outside the pond.

    I understand taxes and all, but how are they going to charge you shipping charges when Windows 8 hits the shelves for your country. Doesn't really make sense

    Yeah it does not, that is why people don't bother to buy original items. This is not only the case in software but also other items such as motorbikes, vehicles and other machinery products.

    You know what, the price of a motorbike imported from India (neighboring country) is more than double in Nepal. Say Pulsar 220CC (a famous brand of motorbike in South Asian country), its price in India is around Rs. 111,050(Nepali Currency) but when imported in Nepal, its price is around Rs.234,900.

    P.S The thread really is going off topic now. :D

    yea... you are ignorant.

    Win8 has the same thing has Win 7... You can choose how you want it to look. Like a PC/Win7 or like the new look of Win 8... Get educated...

    I think its new released laptops you are talking about.....The new released laptops are configured so that they could run the new OS...and are termed as "win8 ready"...the same goes with new and upcoming motherboards.

    Basically, if your laptop says "win 8 ready", it means that it can run on the new win 8 OS effectively and is tested to perform every task on this new platform. The other laptops which are not termed as "Win8 ready" may or may not run the new OS.

    I'm pretty sure every good laptop should run win 8.. because out of 35 laptops only 6-7 we're said to be win8 ready... Must be some secret function O.o ... but I googles and it's basicly nothing .. just certification.

    Since laptop has also 3d function maybe it could run windows in 3d lol


    IT also says it doesn't have START MENU ? O_o

    Re: So How is Windows 8, guys?

    Personally for me as a student developer in gaming and 3D, I find it terrible. Its not well suited for us developers.

    Many companies such as EA Games, Dreamcast and Crytek had complaints about Windows 8.
