It seems like every time we hear about these things the person uploaded through Share. You'd think the uploaders would at least learn to use a different software.

Well, that's what happens when you steal content unless you're somebody who actually steals content on youtube or facebook.

Poor fellas. Hope they don't get pushed around too much, or else I may have to.....recalibrate some of my systems. Seriously recalibrate them. To get rid of the evidence.

39-year old male office worker in Kanagawa (uploaded first episode of Isuca anime via Share)


Worst reason to get arrested ever. Isuca is an anime that deserves to be forgotten. The source material is okay but the anime adaptation is atrocious.
