Glad I don't live in Japan
their copyright laws seem to be tightening day by day, as if it isn't already bad enough for international folks who upload anime related content to YouTube.

These are the most hardcore Japanese criminals


Prisoner one: What are you in for?

Prisoner two: Something so deadly something no one else could forgive me for

All prisoners: *Gasp*

Prisoner two: Uploading anime...

All prisoners: How are you in here?

They're on a roll, are they not? I'd prefer if Youtube didn't get a bunch of content removed though...

How about if you don't want people sharing anime and manga online for free, you actually let us have it legally in other countries Japan? Just saying

Last one uploaded to LimeWire? It should be a crime to even use that dead software. Or its name if its a new service.

I hope they can watch anime and read manga in jail.
No otaku deserves to be restrained from anime.
