As a staunch supporter of Funimation and Crunchyroll in North America, I absolutely refuse to use Daisuki. I will torrent the animes that they stream in North America. We already got a good amount of companies that license products from Japan. If they want the big companies to license more products, maybe they shouldn't be such sticklers when it comes to business. You ever tried to speak business with Japanese companies? Its freaking horrendous.

Wasn't Daisuki set up by the studios themselves.

As a Scandinavian, the only ones I'm boycotting is Crunchyroll.

No Working, no Non Non Biyori, no Charlotte

Every season the same.

Might as well IP ban all of Scandinavia, this website is worthless to us.

Thats why I said NA lol. NA=North America. We don't need the studios in NA doing their own thing and put all the companies who have been working their asses off for a long time in Jeopardy. Thats a dick move.

Yup

So It's available now? Last season they are blocking US IPs. And now It's available on Western audience?

By the questions being asked so far it would seem your post is the first introduction for several to the site.Maybe you should work for the Daisuki promotion team.

Not sure how that was happening. I've used daisuki at least every season since last summer, and I'm in D.C.

Maybe it's blocking by region. Because the last time (April) I asked my web friend (not IRL) he said it's not available in his region. (somewhere in North America.)

I'm not sure what RayzerZ's friend was experiencing. Perhaps trying to access a particular show that wasn't available in US? I don't use the site much but I've used it a little in the past, and just minutes ago was able to successfully access shows, including the first episode of a new show, Classroom Crisis.

As to the original poster's question. No, I will not be boycotting Daisuki. I will choose other legal venues first, and will even choose delaycasts on other legal sites before going to Daisuki (if I know or strongly expect the show will be offered on another site), but if it comes down to watching something I'm interested in on Daisuki and watching it from an illegal source, I'll choose Daisuki.
