Manga scanlation hosting site Batoto! has announced that it will be closing its site up permanently by the end of the month. Site owner RawR has made a lengthy post on their site forums as the reasons for the closure and what is to become of all the content that is currently on the site. Not having the will to keep up with maintaining the site serves as the key deciding factor for the closure but RawR states that this wasn't a decision that was decided just on the fly. RawR has stated that this decision was something that has been on his mind for a couple of years now but finally decided to put his decision into action. From its creation back in 2011, Batoto has had a decline in users over the recent years and that 35% of the traffic to the site right now is mostly due to bots. Multiple factors have also been stated as to why this decision has been made. Site content is currently being backed up by its administrators as they've been notified of this way in advance than the public. RawR does state it is up to the current site staff if they decide if they want to make a new Batoto or something simpler but overall he will not be returning Batoto as it is now. Batoto is site servers will start to be affected on January 18th as their servers expires although content on their site may still be accessed by its members. It won't be till the Jan 25th where the site will no longer be functional but RawR states that people should treat the 18th as the official final day of Batoto.
