La place du scantrad dans le paysage éditorial du manga en France

Abstract : Manga exists in France for more than twenty years. With an explosion of the market in the 2000’, ending with an increase of the publications and the publishers’ turnover, he’s more than ever present in the contemporary editorial landscape. This increasing evolution of the market coincides with the democratization of the Internet; one in particular: the scanlation. Appeared to make up for the lack of series in France, this practice consists in translating mangas from the original scans, and to distribute them for free on the Internet. However, in a market with more and more titles, the scanlation’s existence can be questioned. Barely tolerated by professionals who accuse them of being responsible for the decline of manga sales, scanlation is at the center of the current issues of manga publishing, and pushing professionals to innovate. Faced with divergent speeches on the quality of amateur work on translation and layout, or its part in a series’ success, its place in the manga editorial landscape is questionable.
