Ontopic: Oh Dattebayo. Good times.
I felt sorry for them. They were the ones who provided us with Bleach and Naruto even before CR
acquired legal rights for these two. (Or were they? Not sure. But I used to watch their episodes.)

But that happened a long time ago. Let's move on, people.

Good times, good times. Remember them well. Their subs were excellent or shit depending on QC for the Ep. Sadly, they were dicks and forgot why they began. Such is life.

That's cuz i do sub to it cuz i DONT want to wait 1 fucking week, and I don't use the points for anything so they just accumulate retard.


Sorry but you my friend are the retard.

Wanna know what the difference between CR now and sites like Dattebayo? The legality. What does that mean exactly? Paying CR subscription means supporting all the animes they host. What does that mean? That means possible future seasons for your favorite animes. Let's see. Illegally watch or download anime for free. Or paying and supporting the anime? Yeah. CR is the idiot.

Dattebayo didn't make any money so it wasn't a business. It was more like a group of friends who enjoyed subtitling videos. They didn't even have ads on their site so they didn't even have ad revenue, they could have easily made a living doing such, but they would have been sued hard for doing so. So, it was all free. They didn't have to do any of it. We should be greatful, they made Naruto and Bleach popular in the English speaking community.

Dattebayo did the anime community a great service by providing quality subs quickly for two of the most popular shows for years and years. They did the anime community an even greater service by STOPPING as soon as CR got the license. Just like the above post says, paying 7 bucks a month to CR helps ensure that there will be future anime for us to watch. Supporting the things you're a fan of is important if you want those things to continue. We all like free stuff, but anime isn't made for free, nor is music or anything else.

Other food for thought: the people that do fansubs would be just as good (if not better) at it if they got paid to do it. Help expand the market to make that a reality for them.

edit: Khaltazar I hate to contradict you but Dattebayo WAS a business, they just didn't directly make money off of their anime subs. They had a section of their site advertising their translation services.

But you know.. if it wasn't for them.. then again, it just would have been someone else.

I second that. Look I'm not saying they didn't do good work they were an excellent group. Problem was they made people feel like total dicks for watching their stuff! DB was famous for "Thanks for watching! Oh, and by the way you're all A-Holes! ;)"
