I've noticed lately a increase in licensing restrictions but im a little lost here is what i know that each anime has it own licensing restrictions. Yet i have noticed some odd at lest to me licensing restrictions that have come into effect and it has really made me Curious to know more since im looking into having my own global anime made.

licensing restrictions :

STEINS; GATE has been a favorite of many but unfortunately, due to licensing restrictions, all videos will be removed on Tuesday, Dec. 20th at 11:59pm PST.

Is the recent one, MY current theory is that because of currency change between the Japanese yen and the USA dollar there is some who ever it is wanting to redo the contracts?


Anyone have any idea's?

the publisher for Steins: Gate is Kadokawa Pictures and they usually like to have shows removed after a certain amount of time after the shows final episode.

The reason for the removal of Stein's;Gate is the same as many other Kadokawa series this year (including Deadman Wonderland and Kore Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?); they had been licensed earlier in the year by Funimation.

I was going to comment that this thread wouldn't be complete without a post from TAO.

Although with one piece it the middle part of the show that is missing from last season or was it the season before that
