I know for some, companies like Genon, ADV films, Viz Media and Funamation probably don't mean much, but for other anime fans who buy there mangas and dvds from these companies it is a huge deal. With Genon out of business, who can be next? Genon had huge titles under there belt. Bravo Girls, Tenjho Tenge, and I think Burst Angels, this could be a domino effect. I heard that ADV films pulled down a huge load of there online streams, I think its up now, but I'm not sure. Could this be the end for anime companies and voice actors?

Okay maybe not the voice actors because they could always do work for cartoons, but where's the fun in that? I was thinking about become a voice actress(people say I have a gift at sounding like different people, I just now realize I could do it).

Okay so instead of like commenting all over the place like I've been doing, I going to add a link from youtube of a pannel that Greg Ayres did about fansubs. I think this might help get people too understand a little better.

This is the first pannel video, there are more. Its your choice if you want to watch it all or not.
Sogen Con 2007 - fansubs panel (1)- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cV0b8bEaT4I&feature=related

P.S. I by know means am trying to damn anybody for wanting to watch fansubs, I mean, I have some as my favorites on my profile. But I do plan on buying them once they are out here in the US. And I will make sure to responed on this thread, I know it may get a little annoying at times, but yeah, just want to like, discuss this and like find out what others think about this. Your opioins mean a lot. Basically give a little of my take on what it is some people may have to say, but don't worry, I will never disrespect anyone, so feel free to post what you think.

But one of the reasons that I worry is that, if this happens, they mey then crack down on anime fansubs because the creators of the anime aren't getting paid from that. Most anime fans think that they get paid a crap load, but that's not true. Same things that go with the voice actors. They have to have more then one job to really make a living. The only voice actors that make a lot of money are the people who voice the Simpsons. $350,000. Wish I worked for them. That just has me worried.

but i would like to think that in a way they get profit, from fansubs. like cuz some1 put up an anime ppl could see it and like it, in turn thoose ppl might become obsessed and end up buying keychains and such, but it would be wise 2 asume tat the prfits marginal
