Just read it from a chinese forum and got the news that 3 Japanese people that are responsible for uploading many new unsubbed anime (RAWs) are caught by the Japanese police.

The original news article in Japanese is here : http://internet.watch.impress.co.jp/cda/news/2008/05/09/19490.html

While anime news network has an article on this as well: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2008-05-09/3-arrested-in-japan-for-spreading-anime-via-share-program

According to the dicussions on this in the other forums, other RAW suppliers are announcing stepping out of the RAW uploading industry and many are unlikely to upload new anime RAWs.


I totally ORZ'd after reading about this. How on earth are we watching anime anymore?

oh, that's so mean the authorities are obviously overreacting...


anyway, this isn't the first action of this type, so I wouldn't say there's much need to worry... true anime fans will always find a way to share the newest anime series, no matter how restrictive the law is ( take geass for example )

Ummm...Anime Otakus which wants to help the dying population of Anime Fans in the net?
Anyways, it's already illegal to upload raws in Japan. If you get caught, then you're dead.

But don't trust me, since I don't really know what I'm saying

Problem is the arrested ones are the Anime otakus that we're relying on for the newest anime. And why they're caught is because they've violated the law, so I doubt would the other uploaders would put their future at risk.

Weird idea I know but...buy the dvds and give the show producers/original authors their just desserts. And before anyone attempts to call me a hypocrite for coming here and saying this, take into account I plan to buy anime I've seen and liked here when it comes out.

well there are sites which have millions of licensed hollywood shows and movies online (illegally of course)...surely anime wouldn't be a problem? but anyway, it's going to make it that much harder to watch anime online from now onwards.
