The people making anime are going flat broke like the rest of people, but its mostly the popular ones for god knows why... I'm gonna say this flat out i'm broke I have no money for support so I get what he's saying. and i don't think your a noob, so people don't bite his head off just cuz he has something to say in his time of anger.


hmmm everyone can say what they thinks... our dear author of this thread as well as people who, as you say, wanna bite his head off... hahaha
BTW the true is that in my country anime isnt very popular... and I havent possibility to buy it but well if it will change I will buy anime you know I really wanna have all my fav titles only for me :D


Lucky for my country (Vietnam) is a big fan of all the Japanese Creation and we trade mostly with them. Thats right, manga, figurines, all those otaku stuff. And they are cheap. Seriously. I think they get most money from Vietnam XD

The companies that in which licensed the series in the US has to pay a "licensing fee" to the original owners of the series, which is around USD$10,000 per episode to USD$50,000 per episode. That's just the licensing fee alone. There's still the cost of translation, dubbing, trimming (sometimes), advertising the series.

Source of info: http://wiki.crunchyroll.com/Licensing


So in short, it's understandable that the companies who bought the licenses limit the distribution of the series. They have to make a living, too. If no one buy their products, soon they'll go out of business. The original owners of the series will receive less profit for their works, which means that many of them will choose to "do something else". That means soon there won't be anymore anime series to sub and stream for you to watch, you know.

Oh, and fansubbing is actually illegal



____________________________________________________

I won't deny the fact I also watch anime and other videos online, sometimes even download them, and I do hate it when the series is licensed.

But there isn't really a need to call others to stop supporting the license holders. The license holders are not being assholes. They had invested too much money and works into obtaining the license and redistribute the series. No one like to be steal from... basically...

So anyway, it's your choice whether you support the license holders or not, but don't speak bad of them. Put yourself into their shoes and see what would you do.

So you're telling me you want to continue stealing intellectual property, continually killing anime, and depriving other people from obtaining legal copies of anime and merchandise?

GROW UP NOOB


Thanks for writing the wikipage on licensing. I found it some time at the beginning of the year 2007 and it have been very useful

Well if you're really desperate, then you could always support it by buying online. It's actually pretty damn easy, and you can find some good deals.
