Calm down everyone. Google have just came up with a really popular money making scheme again. Like Google+.

I agree. To this day, Google+ goes down in history as one of the best business decisions of all time, despite being forced on everyone. In the end, everyone loved it!


Exactly. I've loved my time of using it. All one of them.

Yeeeaaappp. It's like "Scene established. SEX. Cuddles. Cute outro picture." And most of them are just otps from an already established show, that's totally outside of cannon. I want more real yaoi. I haven't seen the Ai No Kusabi remake yet, actually.


Dude. I feel you on so many levels. There's like no plot or build up as to how those characters would actually get together. Don't get me wrong, I have my pairings...but I don't expect them to be suddenly gay for each other. Happily ever after and perfect scenarios don't exist.

I didn't even know that they did a remake!

Agreed. No, I totally have otps too, but sometimes I wish we would get some real plot in there. Or a yaoi anime that doesn't focus on gay love, but rather the story, and it just happens to be men that fall in love, you know? I don't see yuri of that caliber either.

Yeesss, girl, yes. 2013. I don't think the art is as pretty as the original, though.



Have you ever read Earthian? Art and story are by Yun Kouga (Loveless). It takes a different approach to heaven, and is about two angels that end up falling for each other while assigned to duties on earth. Naturally, heaven being the holy land of anti-homosexuality, this is forbidden.

Hahaha wow, where have I been? Hopefully the story is the same because it was really pretty and I loved the futuristic tone of everything.

And not yet, but you can be sure that I'm going to read it. Like no joke, I just went and found it...and now it's saved to my laptop.

Boy google is just shitting out one great idea after another lately. Google really hasn't had any good ideas lately, they've just bought out every company that has had good ideas then broke them horribly in a couple of years.

This is going to kill youtube off. Part of the reason so many people go on it, is because its free! Start charging and the amount of people going on it will drop overnight...

Make an account on niconico.jp and you'll find some pretty nice stuff on there.

Including Japanese music. Like this. Or this.

If you force people to pay, people then start being creative on finding ways to get around it.

Been like this for a very long time.

Considering how many people use adblock, rather than watch a thirty second ad, or simply skipping, and justify doing so (although, if it's more than thirty seconds and unskippable, I'd understand), of course YouTube are going to need to find other ways to make money, and pay YouTubers. I understand that it's google, and that they probably have a hundred warehouses filled with money to swim in, but nothing in life is free, and since a whole lot of people don't want to spend their time on ads, I guess Google will attack their wallets, instead.

This is purely conjecture, however. Who knows why they're going with a premium service, that will surely attract a lot of bad press? Perhaps they can just never have enough money... And who knows why they're giving it an awful name, that people will no doubt make jokes about, and thus inadvertently reveal what said people get up to on the internet? They'll probably start buying porn sites, and expand their business, so that name might be intentional... Anyway, I don't think this is going to be the death of YouTube. Considering how big it is, of course it wont. I don't doubt that something will eventually come along to challenge it, but currently, it's far too big to just die at one very questionable business decision... And the multiple others in the past...

Hmm...

I honestly have not seen any content be removed as of yet thanks to youtube red...

WEll they've already said that if you don't have youtube red then nothing will change for you and revenue cuts from the advertisements will remain the same as it did before the whole youtube red thing. Since adverts won't play for youtube red users then there won't be any revenue stream from youtube red users based on ads for content creators. However a part of your subscription cost will go to the content creator if you're a youtube red user, this means that if you watch many channels then each and every channel will profit less on your views since you view more stuff. But if you only watch lets say one or two channels then the revenue generated for them will be more due to them getting a bigger cut from your subscription money. It's the same base model as Crunchyroll and many other premium services already uses, if you have a premium account then a small part of the money you pay will be evenly payed out to every licens holder that has their content on Crunchyroll.

Currently Google/youtube takes a 45% cut of all add revenue from all users using the "free service", that's 15% more then most other sites with content creators as their main focus (video or other). If anything then I may see Multi channel networks (MCN's) going away since it won't remain profitable to be a MCN if youtube red really kicks off (which I highly doubt it will...). Since MCN's currently works like this, youtube/google takes their 45% cut of the add revenue, then the MCN takes their cut and the content creator gets what's left. With youtube red then there's no guarantee how much a view will bring in terms of money, since it all depends on how much content he/she is watching on youtube. Therefore that's the only thing I may see going away. However to be frank the only exclusive content they've announced for youtube red is a reality TV show by pewdiebie and something by roosterteeth, I don't think that's something a lot of people are willing to pay for. So I honestly don't think much will change. The once who took away their content probably will upload it again once they reliaze youtube red isn't somthing to be worried about, or that's at least how I see it.

And even if this is the end of youtube then I honestly don't think much will change regarding how we consume online videos, since there's a roumer fling around regarding facebook claiming it'll have a content revenue system in the works for content creators. So if facebook decides to have a 30% revenue cut for it's users then I honestly think youtube red and youtube as a whole is in trouble since facebook already streams 3 billion videos/day to it's users and have a massive consumer base as is
