Ripping Digital Scans from Viz?
« on: March 11, 2016, 05:45:34 am »
Hi! I am interested in buying Volumes 10-15 of Video Girl Ai, and completing the collection of HQ scans by Lovag, which only goes up to Volume 9.

Does it make sense to buy the manga from here? - http://www.viz.com/manga/digital/video-girl-ai. I assume there's some sort of DRM on them, so that you can't just save the images to the desktop.

Can anyone mentor me, or point me towards a ripping guide?

Print Screen defeats most DRM :) A bit more work of course, specially if you can't fit the whole image on the screen.
I have never bought anything from Viz Digital so take anything I say with a grain of salt.
Memories are meant to fade. They're designed that way for a reason.

Never use print screen.
And no, it doesn't always defeat DRM.

Windows has Snipping tool now too, superior to printscreen - but don't use that either.

In that case, can anyone point me to a method that DOES work?
