Now as most people know DB use to be the only quality sub for Naruto for the longest time, with CR's win on exclusive rights they lost that title which was ok...

This is because they were quite literally the BEST FanSub for Bleach fans and any REAL Bleach fan has at least heard of this website

now while I do not blame CR for the lack of quality in Naruto subs as the subs are produced by VIZ, I'm saddened that VIZ will probably also be the one to sub Bleach episodes for their website...

If this is the case I will be extremely disheartened because DB brought such a quality of subs - of the like i have never seen before - that it made me like the show. I use to passionately distaste the show dude to very poor quality dubs in the American TV station Cartoon Network.

As honorable and noble as DB is we all know they will eventually drop Bleach soon if not immediately starting the week Bleach makes its first airing on CR.

I learned a lot about Japanese culture due to DB's exceptional work in sub titling, but we are all going to have to deal with the very poor quality of VIZ subs coming shortly, and i extend my most heartfelt apologies to all DB fans and DB staff as VIZ's work is an insult to Japanese culture and DB's quality - funny too VIZ gets paid for their grammatical errors and you would be EXTREMELY HARD PRESSED to find even a single one in DB work... and they do their work for free.

While I congratulate CR in their victory I am extremely wary and hope that DB's effort in helping you attain such a victory does not go unnoticed...
*** If memory serves me correct on a particular episode DB had as many as 250,000(maybe more) hits on their torrents(downloading their subbed anime) and that was just the first couple days***
DB commands a massive fan base to which CR definitely owes thanks

I think I represent all DB fans when I Say this -

Dattebayo,
Your quality skills, and humorous outtake all wrapped up in your passion and love of subbing will not be forgotten. you may have lost your biggest projects and I hope for your fans and your own honor that you find another project worth while that will inspire future generations to watch anime at the high quality one could possibly have. Your out of the ordinary subtitling and the drive to go beyond the limits to subtitle the OPs and EDs and explain honorifics and meanings behind every technical term has made me connect with the characters of Naruto and Bleach. They have made me connect on such a level that I can no longer stop watching the show, no matter how poor the quality VIZ represents. I thank you for treating me like the adult that I am. I thank you for giving me the same experience that all Japanese viewers in Japan are currently blessed with. But more importantly I thank you for not making a kid's show out of probably one of the greatest stories ever written in the history of manga. I never thought I'd actually learn about Japanese culture by reading subs...

P.S. Thanks for the trolls I loved and watched every single one of them :)

Forever Loyal,

Jesse Adams

VIVE LE DATTEBAYO!!!!!!

'LOL' as a person who lived in Japan for 8 years, and has a girlfriend who is from Japan. We have one thing we do agree on, fan subs from Datebayo was over jazzed and far from what was really being said. The fan subbers had to be some childish no nothing who had no understanding what words really mean. But I am not attacking just Datebayo subbing. It is the same for VIZ and all other fan subbing groups I have seen of late. Maby I should make a subbing business and make real subs so you can compare what is really being said to what their fan subs spew.

everyone has their flaws. i do agree with you that their subs can be overzealous sometimes, their quality still made the show actually worth watching...

I only wish i knew japanese well enough to just ignore the subtitles all together... cause now they will surrender that project next week

I want dattebayo for all my anime forevermore! Screw elitest white dudes who have been to japan--DB understands the real intent of language and have brought the art of subbing to a level where concepts can be understood clearly; I'm not fluent but thanks to DB and Rosetta I can at least understand when crappy subs like VIZ screw up the translation. Or take something too literally. Can we start a petition to ressurect DB's position? The only reason I've even heard of this site is because of them.

Yeah it's sad that DB has to drop Bleach. Bleach has been my favorite anime for a long time now and DB made it better. I'm not looking forward to having crappy quality and pg rated subbs. The only thing that has happend here today is a great anime was taken away from a great fan subbing company. And for what? $6.95 a month. Greed blows my mind.

DB isn't dropping Bleach because they have to or are being forced too. DB is just respecting the rights that CR has acquired to simulcast Bleach. If they wanted too continue they could.

Personally, I will continue to look forward to Hakuouki from DB.

yes, they are dropping it, only because they dont wanna get sued. . since CR has offically obtained the rights now, CR didn't have to tell them to cuz they knew DB would drop it, just like Naruto. DB even said they would drop it if it came to this - http://www.dattebayo.com/pr/134 - 3rd line.

I am also a Dattebayo fan for quite sometime now, and I love their subs and going to miss their Bleach subbing dearly.
But as they have said on their site, we need to petition for them to be involved in the subbing here on CR.
If CR can petition on getting Bleach onto here why not us petition DB to work here as well? And maybe finally they get paid for such great work they do.

If all fails, I'm going to stop watching CR all together, tired of their horrible subbing.

CR doesn't sub anything. That is handled by the company they license from.
