Christ, you have 13000+ Cr pts, but you don't know why?

Anime is distributed in the US (where this site is based out of to the best of my knowledge) by several different companies. Basically, there are 3 major players - ADV, Geneon (aka Pioneer), and Bandai. There are others, but those are the biggies. ADV requested that this specific site take down all of it's ADV licensed material (anime they paid money for to sell in America). From what I understand, they were very nice about it when they could have been much worse (as in lawsuit worse), so no need to flame them. Evangelion - among others - are distributed by ADV in America, so that is why they've been taken down instead of other series that were licensed by other companies.

ADV understands how much the neo-fansubbing culture is apart of the overall anime subculture (just look at the all the Haruhi hoopla recently), so they'd never condemn that, but it is fair to ask people to stop distributing genuinely copyrighted material once it becomes licensed.

Other companies are a bit more laid back about it, but they're not as dependent on North American sales as ADV is. For the record, ADV is hurting bad right now financially. Some of you idiots may think that’s a good thing (since you refuse to buy anything at all), but they are genuinely good people who care about anime and want to see it be more popular in the US - and their releases are top notch to boot.

I'd challenge everyone here to AT LEAST buy their favorite series on DVD instead of always leeching off the internet. God knows DVD box sets are cheap enough now. If you're a Narutard who loves a huge ass series loaded with filler, then at least buy something you enjoy on DVD, even if it isn't your favorite seires - you can get them absurdly cheap now. I just picked up both the ENTIRE Genshiken and Ecsaflowne (TV) series for around $50. I practically stole the stuff, and yes, I've already seen both of them.

Personally, you should feel god damned lucky someone is willing to host this much licensed anime - lord knows I wouldn't for fear of a lawsuit.

Whats so bad about it. I know Bandai Entertainment sucks, but here is a little trick I found. You get the DVD. You go to audio and put on the "Japanese" option. Then, you go to subtitles and press enter on the "English" option. You can just download all of them off of AFK fansubs before they take it off. THey have like a billion seeders STILL seeding it. I just hope it doesn't get aired on Adult Swim so all the naruto noobs trash this masterpiece. Oh silly me. According to cartoon network, shounen is the ONLY anime.... if you disregard Miyazaki movies and....Hamtaro -_-.

ADV is nice. THey didn't sue Shinji when they found out this site had a bajillion of their licensed material being aired for free. They just asked him to take it off.
NOTE: better than being sued."
Also, they provide the BEST voice overs in the industry although they reuse the same actors. At least they promise to provide some dubbing quality unlike that half-assed casting job that people like 4 kids and viz do.
