Online legal alternatives have a long, long way to go to catch up with printed manga.

Manga has lost all monetary value, at least here in America. It is a free online commodity.

It's a problem with the service mostly. While Viz has gotten better at bringing volumes over in English for purchase, nearly all of their series are way behind schedule. Hayate the Combat Butler is like... 20 volumes behind at this point and a large portion of manga is simply ignored in the West and have absolutely zero chance of getting released here in any form.

Dumb edit button disappearing. This is especially true when a new anime is made for a series. There are usually plenty of anime that are made based off of a manga, but then never end with a solid ending, or if it is it's an anime original ending which usually is terrible.

As such, anyone who loved the anime will be usually left in the dark and never see anything about the story again as the manga for this series will simply be ignored compared to the localized anime.
