Optimal choice would be a ghost board on archive.moe. I feel it would be the closest to the actual /a/ experience and having the archive close at hand would be neat. Second choice would be that doushio website, I haven't browsed much of it but it doesn't seem bad.

7chan and Desuchan would probably very wary of refugees, trying to preserve their own acquired board status quo, and I can' blame them for that. iichan is still alive as wakachan, so that's another option.

All I know is that I won't be touching the likes of reddit or eitchan. That's where the faggots responsible for 4chan's demise are.

But Japanese is such a different language than English. Here, you can add cuck to anything and make a shitpost such as "americuck." For Japanese you need to work out readings and slang that might not be in dictionaries.

I mean, Origa just died and now 4chan gets sold to tumblr or facebook or whatever the shit.

We need someone to setup a backup community that won't be shit.

Thing is, it has to be exactly like /a/, and can't cater too much to one crowd nor get too "muh frreeee speeechh" that it ends up like reddit or redditchan.

Basically, you need to setup another imageboard, only setup boards on it thats 4chan equivalents aren't complete shit as to keep out /v/ and /pol/, have an aggressive anti-pedophile policy, but at the same time tolerate lolicons and other drawn but offensive content that is harmless, but in a fashion that's just SFW enough to be on-topic, but that has moderation that "lets the rules slip" and lets just enough NSFW shit through at a time, that also bans for recommendations.

Face it. /a/ is hard to clone, and there are a lot of different kinds of us here that tolerate each other. I don't mind sharing a board with you lolicons, but I'll be damned if I'm going to support redditchan and its boards for actual pedos.

meguca.org is the dousjio r/a/dio board.

It's nice, and loli is allowed.

I still think moot should have spun /a/ /jp/ /m/ and /c/ off on their own though.
>>
>>120182693
Fuck my life.
>>
>>120183169
These other boards get it wrong though.

I'm not gonna replace /a/ with a board that's all loli. I don't come to /a/ for that. /a/ is a big community, and it won't be the same unless we all come, from you lolicons to us lovers of fat whores. Which means, you'd still need to be confined to sadpanda threads. I don't mind the occasional leaking into other threads, but I'm not gonna wade through 9 loli threads to talk about anime.

/a/ became too big for it's own good.

>>120183063

>>
>>120183448
I'm just citing loli as an example. I just personally like the live posting style and wish we all could migrate to one.

That site has the most lax rules of the live ones, so I suggested it.
>>
>>120183169
This is pretty nice. Plus you can set Ilya dance as a background. How cool is that?

>>120182866
/a/ is its community.

Whoever set up the /a/ for redditchan tried hard to "import" some of the /a/ culture (spoilered porn allowed, 2D/3D distinction, no recommendations, etc.)

But it doesn't work because most of the people that go to /a/ aren't there. Same for the other alternatives. Sure /a/ has a lot of shitty new posters who use Facebook and Reddit that they probably don't have, but those boards are also missing the core users that make up "/a/."
>>
Honestly I'll probably go to 2ch more often
but besides that I'll probably take a step back and stop talking about anime as much and actually watch/read more stuff.

4chan isn't about lax rules, we have much tighter rules than reddit or imgur.

4chan is about having tough rules, but not enforcing them properly.

This Meguca board isn't actually that bad, but seems dead, and r/a/dio has always been pretty cancerous.

moot agreed, don't bother him about it.

>>120183745
That's a crucial point, all 4chan clones need a circlejerk coming from another site to have a base to work with and they do, the problem is that with that circlejerk it can't be /a/ by definition
To be a substitute it needs to be really similar to /a/, where you're expected to not be new, and at the same time not have a culture on your own that divides it from /a/. Basically an "official" /a/ colony
>>
>>120184316
It will never happen, you doofus.

/a/ is lazy as fuck. When was the last time you ever saw /a/ stand up for something and fight for it?

The last one I remember was back on Horizon's 1st Season that because of no fucking sub-groups, /a/ actually subbed the stupid show.
And this was what, 3 or 2 years ago or some shit.

anime discussion will always get bland if people do it for too long. Of course there will always be oldfags who refuse to leave, but people will constantly grow out of it, and there will always be more newfags. If the website changes due to Moot being kill, then so be it. /a/ certainly has changed before, I'm sure they can survive more changes.

FAKKU still has no involvement with the Wani takedowns. Wani started them and Wani is the one keeping them going, and even without the whole FAKKU Books deal Wani would have still kept going with them (and the start of the takedowns was what resulted in the publishing deal to begin with).

Not going to defend Jacob's samefagging though, that's just dumb and I've said as much to him directly. I believe the quality of the products should speak for themselves, and if you do want to talk about things related to them, you should be honest about your allegiances & biases (and attaching your name to your posts is the quickest way to go about that).

How exactly could fansubbers "retaliate" against HS anyway? Pretty much the only way to stop CR rips would be stop CR itself, and that's not something a bunch of nerds in their Reimu boxers could just do.

>Almost every group is dead and you just stood by and watched

Again, what exactly could I do besides watch? If people don't want to work on fansubs, it's not like someone could just tell them that they must keep doing it.

>>120188541 is right on the money in saying that it's really the people who don't want to wait for fansub releases and are fine with HS who have "killed" fansubs. Not to mention that a lot of people fansubbed to "make anime available", whereas basically the only reason to do fansubs anymore is having higher quality than what legal options (and rips of said legal options) offer. And on that front, I've never stopped advocating for high quality options.

>but you are probably not even going to bother with fansubbing anymore since you're too busy county your FAKKU scheckles.

Admittedly, I am less interested in working on fansubbing now that I am able to work on providing high quality legal digital options with relatively free hands. But can you really blame me? High quality legal digital distribution has been something I've wanted to do for a long time. Fansubbing has simply been a way to fill that want in the form of high quality illegal digital distribution. And the reason legal trumps illegal is simple: access to higher quality sources.

If /a/ and/or 4chan dies I was thinking we would meet up on the archive first and foremost. No use trying to crown a successor until then.

Alternatively there could just be an /a/ copy paste going on the archive until something was figured out.

>And on that front, I've never stopped advocating for high quality options.

Yet you are doing nothing to motivate the people who, along side you, once strove to deliver those high quality options.

Where the fuck is UBW from UTW? This is a good example, as you were part of the group at one point, or still are, I don't know.
But I bet my ass that not even once you went up to Kusion or aers and asked them, "hey guys, maybe we should really release a episode or two sometime soon", and instead you just let them idle on episode 3 forever.

>Fansubbing has simply been a way to fill that want in the form of high quality illegal digital distribution.

Fansubbing was something done by the fans of the gender, not something to fill in in forms of high quality, you troglodyte.

I fucking waited over 1 week on Animesuki just to get that stupid 240p hardcoded [WinD] subbed Higurashi episode, because I knew those freaks loved that fucking show so much they would go out of their free time to deliver it, translated, to the people that also loved it as much.

It was never about the form of high quality until your Hi-10p shit hit the fan.

>And the reason legal trumps illegal is simple: access to higher quality sources.

I'll grant you this, getting a good source was always a problem, but people managed back then, and I'm sure some people who still have active contacts manage till this day.
But this should be no way a fucking excuse for you to say that your cause is just.
Making something legal - FOR MONEY, always kills the free market. And that was what fansubbing was, the free market.

That you want to get payed for something instead of doing it for free I won't question, but what I truly question here is the ethics behind your reasons.
The ethics that the fansubbing community once held and the ethics that people like you, who no longer care what the true reasons were when this entire scene started and only care now about how much money I can put into my pocket.

>Fansubbing was something done by the fans of the gender, not something to fill in in forms of high quality, you troglodyte.

That's not how it works. Fansubbers have always had reasons to do what they do. For most of fansubbing's existence, this reason has been to simply make anime available, since legal options were rare or nonexistent. Another big motivation has been to provide anime in high quality. Nowadays, the former has basically no reason to exist anymore (since anime is very much available with all the legal options out there), so the only big motivator left is doing it for quality. And even that will require the subbers to desire higher quality than what the legal options offer. As such, it's only natural that there's less subbers today than in the past.

Running out of space in this post, I'll reply a bit more to you in another.

>Where the fuck is UBW from UTW?

Something like that is really on the shoulders of whoever is leading the project, and at UTW I've basically always been just an encoder and nothing more. As such, there isn't really anything I could do to make the projects I'm not involved in go faster, as it's simply out of my hands. At Underwater, things are different - as the group leader, I'm basically the project leader on everything, and that's where I can actually do things to ensure releases happen.

>because I knew those freaks loved that fucking show so much they would go out of their free time to deliver it, translated, to the people that also loved it as much.

Here's where you and I differ - I've personally never believed there to be anything magical about the fact that fansubs are fan-made. I'm a very pragmatic person who is interested in high quality anime releases, and I prefer fansubs because they are the ones doing just that most of the time. I also don't think this to be an optimal scenario - there will always be downsides to fan-made hobby projects that can be only dealt with by doing things legitimately with money, so ideally we'd get the high quality currently only offered by fansubbers legally instead.

Hobbyists working illegally will basically always be limited to mass-market consumer products as sources. They will always have those as a quality ceiling. Legal business is basically the only way to get access to sources better than that, so the quality ceiling is much higher. This is why I support the idea of high quality legal products.

>Making something legal - FOR MONEY, always kills the free market. And that was what fansubbing was, the free market.

As others have already pointed out, you're basically going full retard here. Free market does not mean "getting stuff for free".

As I already said, this is a matter of what motivates people to fansub. What got the scene started was the motivation to make anime available in the first place. The desire for quality came later, and personally I've always been in it for that.

CR does get better sources than fansubbers.

The reason why fansubs still end up nicer to look at is because CR doesn't make the best of their sources. They don't do any filtering on them (because anime sources are generally flawed) and encode them with little care.

For a concrete example, take a look at these comparison:

http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/105249
http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/105250

That's Crunchyroll's 1080p vs Kazé's (a German simulcasting company) 1080p, encoded from the same high quality source. The Kazé version is an example of what you could get if companies like CR actually cared about the quality of their video.

>As I already said, this is a matter of what motivates people to fansub. What got the scene started was the motivation to make anime available in the first place. The desire for quality came later, and personally I've always been in it for that.

Alright, first of all, I guess I should thank you for responding to my comments. On this you're at least one of the few people inside the fansubbing community who takes it's time to drop by and answer shit.

I already see that we diverge in ideas, though the way you made it sound by adding the word "magical" a while ago really made me want to punch your face.

There was nothing magical about it, it was just how it was. The community was a lot smaller back then as well, and though that gave a different feeling to the purpose of why the fansubbers did what they did, overall the matter of the fact was, as you said, and I as well, to make anime available.

If you're a pragmatic person who's only interested in giving out the highest quality I couldn't care less, if that's your niche, then fine, go with it.
But I sure bet my ass that the main reason why people did fansubbing back then was not about the quality but just to make it so that a translated anime episode could reach the people that loved anime.

But my question is now related to he part I quoted. If you say it's a matter of what motivates people to fansub, then I'll ask, what stopped motivating them to do such?
And also, what stopped motivating you as well.

If your answer goes in something of the lines that, we don't need to bother because anime is already legally available then I'll have to say that you're full of bullshit.
Specially when it comes to the quality aspects you praise so much of, because watching a CR horriblesubs rip in 720p is almost as bad as watching a fucking XviD.

You did absolutely nothing to stop this and yet you still say that making it legal helped? Come on, it fucking killed everything.

Isn't that obvious? Pretty much everything gets simulcasted by legit streaming companies today. The legal options fulfill the goal of "making anime available" better than fansubbers ever could, and with the exception of latecasts there's no way to beat the legal options in speed either, so subbing for the sake "being out first" e-peen is pretty much out of the picture today as well. As such, it's only natural that basically just the quality people are left today to still do fansub releases for things.

>And also, what stopped motivating you as well.

I already talked about this - a big reason for me to do high quality digital distribution illegally in the form of fansubbing is that I couldn't do it legally - now that I'm able to do (even) high(er) quality digital distribution legally (and even get paid for it), it's simply much more attractive to work on (and sure, it's H-manga instead of anime, but I end up doing surprisingly similar things and both are something I enjoy anyway).

Except when it comes to image quality, typesetting quality and even translation quality.

You just admitted what I said. Making the distributions legal killed fansubbing.
If you still cared, you would have at least talked the the fansubbing community and striven to get at least a bunch of people still active who had the same goals as you did, quality in all aspects. But instead everything just died and you shifted your motivation towards something that fills your pockets.
You're basically a sellout, and this is how you are working against the fansubbing community instead of for it.
>>
>>120192103
Yep, that was the big thing about simulcasting - legal options that actually beat the illegal ones in speed. Not only that, they could also do it with much better consistency since it's a business for them, not just a hobby. This is a very big reason why high quality legal options would be the ideal - you can only really guarantee speed and consistency like that legally.
>>
>>120192232
That's bullshit. That kind of thing only works if it's an industry people can actually compete in, when it comes to media only one company is going to get the rights to translate and show the title and companies are always going to choose the option that gives them the best deal in terms of gain, always to the detriment of the customer.

Look, I've been talking about two different motivators to fansub - "making things available" and "having quality things". The fact that the latter is its own thing is because quality was never as big of a concern for the "making things available" people - in fact, back in the day some subbers even argued against the existence of things like DVDrips because they were "too high quality". According to them, fansubs should be "lower quality" so that it'll motivate people to support legal options.

And the fact is that the quality of legal options today is generally better than the shit you used to get with fansubs a decade or so back. For the "making things available" subbers, this level of quality is enough, and thus it fulfills their want for availability enough, and thus they don't really have a reason to fansub anymore.

>>120192200

Who cares about the fansubbing scene? CR and subsequently, HS for the jews provide more anime faster than any fansubbing group could. If fansubbers give a shit about actual translation and the projects they work on, they can easily work on projects that CR leaves out, or on ones they are working on but providing better translations if needed.

Nothing was a detriment to me whatsoever when CR got big, in fact, it was a bonus because I got more shows I liked faster, and could still download other group releases if needed. The pain of waiting weeks for one 20 minute episode, or the pain of watching a shitload of shows go down the drain never to be translated was horrible.

But that's crunchryroll, who offer their shit (at horrible quality) for free if you don't want to pay and have HS ripping directly from them and subsequent groups taking from them and changing the subtitles wherever they see fit. The Fakku issue is completely different because they will charge you 10x the normal price for the product in a small range and there are no alternatives to get it free anywhere else. I care more about the scanlation scene than I care about the fansubbing scene, many of the dead groups had shit torrents you couldn't even find anywhere or find a single person seeding even if that older anime DID get picked up by some of the groups.

>>120192380
You're not really making sense. The only thing that's required for legal options to beat illegal ones in speed is to get the materials in advance and a permission to release right after the initial publication. You seem to be implying that exclusive licensing would be needed to make that happen, which is simply not true.

But speaking of exclusive licensing, I do completely agree with you that it's basically nothing but detrimental to consumers, as it results in competition being more about "who has what content" instead of "who has the best service". In that regard, I'd much prefer if all licensing was non-exclusive (and while we're dreaming, global as well).

So you're saying Underwater is an active and actually alive fansubbing group that plans to continue fansubbing current shows and will still do so in the future?

Come on, it's not April fools yet. You didn't even picked up a single show this season.

>Are you saying there's something wrong with making a living doing something that you've wanted to do for years?

There's nothing wrong with that.

What's wrong is the principle behind the reasons on this that made you allegedly "lose the motivation" to stop caring about the fansubbing scene.
But you'll never admit this to be true.

On another note, I'd ask if you even had any plans to at least do a single typesetting stream like the old times, but the fact that you're not even working on CG just proves how much interested you are in this anymore.

A vast exaggeration. One does not simply kill piracy with takedowns, though admittedly those can make things a bit more inconvenient. But the possibility of that inconvenience is something that you just have to accept when you're pirating shit.

the guy is exaggerating but you fucking morons cant seriously tell me that's a valid price for a fucking digital scan which was previously available completely for free?

fakku isn't comparable at all, the takedowns have made things shit, even with regular manga it can be hard to find things floating around with whatever is taken down or lost forever when sites die, Fakku does the same hypocritical shit Crunchy did by going from pirating shit to making you pay money for it, difference is, CR is reasonably priced, HS exists, and people are still free to translate and upload whatever fucking anime they want whenever they want with no issues, which is the exact opposite on all counts with Fakku. 10x is ridiculous and nobody could get away with it not even the fucking idiots at J-list but those prices are just pure bullshit, you and Jacob can go fuck yourselves

Underwater is definitely alive, but working in reduced capacity because other things in my life take more priority now (in comparison, about a year ago fansubbing was about the only thing I had going for me, which is why we did a LOT of stuff).

>What's wrong is the principle behind the reasons on this that made you allegedly "lose the motivation" to stop caring about the fansubbing scene.

Dude, it really is quite simple. I care about high quality digital distribution. Fansubbing used to be the only way for me to do things related to that. Now I have an actual job working on legitimate high quality digital distribution of H-manga, and because legal digital distribution has a higher quality ceiling than illegal digital distribution, I end up caring more about the legal work I can do over the illegal one (especially because I also get paid for the legal work, whereas the illegal work is a pure time & money sink).

>I'd ask if you even had any plans to at least do a single typesetting stream like the old times

The main reason I don't do that anymore is because I don't really typeset anymore - I haven't kept up with all the crazy shit typesetters do today, which has made me into a mediocre typesetter at best. And streaming the stuff I do otherwise wouldn't be very interesting.

So what? Yeah, people are freaking out about it now but we have crossboarders from all manner of boards.

Just one day previous to this, nobody gave a shit about moot on /a/, hell, the guy has barely even been here or posted here for a long time. He hasn't been an active participant in years to /a/ and everybody here knows that, moot has distanced himself from /a/ and anime and that part of his life and by leaving 4chan he shows he's distancing himself from 4chan alltogether.

This doesn't impact anyone because he's likely known about this for a year or even longer and has been transitioning for this moment for a long time. Nobody new is taking over as the head admin in this situation, if 4chan gets sold and some new guys are brought in to change things or monetize the site, then you kids can go apeshit over the death of 4chan or /a/. /a/ has always been an insular community and will continue to be so, as big as it is for moot to walk away this isn't going to change anything drastically in regards to /a/ unless the stuff I mentioned before happens

You do know those works have always been commercial products, right? As in something that you are expected to pay for to legitimately enjoy.

That's exactly the way getting the material is going to go.

Anime companies aren't going to just hand of the source material to whoever asks for it, it doesn't even work that way in Japan itself. Instead it will be one company who offers the best deal who gets the rights to the title and anyone else who wants to legally do anything with it is fucked unless the contract specifically allows the source company to make further deals.

Yea in an ideal world multiple companies would be allowed to offer their own translations for a single show but we don't live in an ideal world, we live in the real one. Denying reality isn't going to make it go away.

I meant everybody recognized he hadn't interacted with /a/ for a long time and nobody talked about him. Not in the way they do on /b/ or /pol/.

I am very much aware of the unfortunate exclusive licensing reality we live in, that's why I said stuff like "while we are dreaming".

However, it does seem like more anime production companies are interested in licensing to multiple outlets today than before, so there is a slight glimmer of hope for things to get better.

I won't be holding my breath, though.

This argument has been done to death, same thing with anime, but no serious avenues existed and even had they from the beginning, the market in the US is small compared to Japan. Effectively, we are overpaying for a product available much cheaper if anyone wanted to go down that route so that the middleman can make a larger profit rather than the creators or the people who distribute their products. Crunchyroll is more legitimate because they offer a huge catalogue at a reasonable price for the amount of money they likely give back to the people who actually produce anime.

If such a small market exists it's probably better for those creators to have their works available for free in these small markets so they can get more attention, and then hopefully, a better avenue than fucking Fakku can pop up and service those consumers

You keep picking off parts of my post rather than responding to the larger issues I have with how Fakku runs things which signals to me you acknowledge the multiple areas where Fakku fails in which it doesn't deserve the amount of money they are charging for their products.

Aggressive takedowns in overseas markets have occurred before and had the opposite effect of making people go to buy their products; it made people avoid them entirely. It's probably better for an artist to have their works for free in those smaller markets for people to enjoy them and support them directly, rather than have some parasitic company come up, make a living off of their product whilst seeing little in return off of the huge slice of pie you are charging your customers.

You really can't fault Fakku for being hypocritical in the system we live in. They saw an opportunity and they seized it, despite everything else. They can make a large profit from it for basically doing jack shit, this would happen with or without the artists consent in most cases.

Idealistically, you might see more if people got shit for free and decided to support artists directly. People buying anime BD's sink more cash into the industry than paying for a CR subscription (at least its cheap).

Capitalism is always going to shill you for products you want, and they less they can pay the creators, and the more they can charge you, the better. Corporations don't have any incentive NOT to do that because that's the way everybody else is doing things.

>you acknowledge the multiple areas where Fakku fails

Oh, there's definitely room for improvement in FAKKU's service, mostly in terms of discoverability and product demoing. As it is, we're basically relying on fame artists have gotten via illegal releases to sell stuff, which is not an optimal place to be - you should be able to discover and demo all this kind of stuff legitimately. These are things that we are actively working on, but it's going to take a while to get it all going.

However, when it comes to things FAKKU does already offer, I do think they are much worth the money. You're not going to find any other place where you'd get digital manga in such high quality, DRM-free, with unlimited downloads and unlimited online reading, and the quality of the physical versions is also pretty much unparalleled in English manga - and you get all the digital stuff for free when you buy physical to boot (this used to be limited to physical pre-orders but has now been extended to all physical orders, pre-order or not). And all of this is available very globally.

If you think something like this isn't worth supporting, then I doubt anything would satisfy you. In reality, though, you just obviously don't want to pay for anything, especially not porn. And really, that's fine as long as you're being honest about it - just don't pretend it would have anything to do with supporting artists, please.

I am being honest, though. I can support the artists much more directly by buying their actual works or supporting them in other ways rather than the drip-down profits you give them as you sieve the cash down after everyone takes a cut from it. I'd rather continue pirating shit and then giving more of my money to artists I enjoy than give a dime of my money to a hypocritical website that basically did the exact same shit everyone else did, except do a complete 180 when the time arrived that they could make money from it. It's the exact same reason people still prefer to torrent their anime and then simply buy the BD's, or why people used to go to Mangatraders and then buy the manga. There are plenty of people in the buyfag threads who do so, and their money is actually probably going in larger amounts to the artists and people who produce anime and manga rather than these slipshod websites that pop-up trying to make a buck off of the community it basically took a shit on when it went 'legal'

you'll find most people on /a/ in the buyfag threads do just that. crunchyroll has a manga section but it's horribly inadequate and priced. you see more people simply reading scanlators works, and then buying the manga from the jap websites.

actually, i've given money to bakkin and have every single YrYr volume (in Jap, of course) because it likely actually does get the money to the people who actually deserve it, but then again, it's hard to be ethical with your purchases in this type of world and whilst i don't support it, I understand why somebody would rather pay extra money to a site like Fakku rather than having to download a manga/anime and then buy the physical copy in Japanese. I don't understand it completely especially on /a/ because most of us should easily be able to do that, but whatever. I see why it happened the way it did. and I'm by no means an expert but these companies went legit because Japan had no interest in expanding their products to a western audience in a first place, it was only the piracy that got them to prick up their ears to the (some) profits that could be made here. hopefully in the future we will see better companies pop up you can give your money to for the products you enjoy but for now you can always just continue what you/i am doing

Let's all be honest for a second here:
We all just want to watch anime and read manga in the best quality as possible for free. As long as there are torrents and pirating, the majority, of which I am a part of, will not pay for these.
It's way more convenient to just go and torrent because we can keep everything we download, we don't have to set up accounts and of course we don't have to pay for it.

Inversely when people come and want to make profit of this, they are considered jews. It's for the fact that other people do it for free and often with higher quality, in many areas (but not quantity), than them. You also don't know to what extend the original creators will profit from it.

All of us are hypocrites, let's just stop blaming each other and enjoy the media. People who want to pay for it, will pay for it. People who don't, won't pay for it.

My favorite thing about the Jacob samefagging thing was when he would post

>removing the credits page? thats low you fucking nigger!

And then with his trip he posted a little later "Hey guys, lets have some respect and be nice here!". Even better when he pretended to buy from his own website and pretended to be multiple anons, hypocritically claiming that "you are the reason panda is kill" despite shitting up threads with his samefagging and advertising.

I mean just the irony of him saying "you are the reason panda is kill" was enough to make me laugh for an hour straight. What a fucking moron. I can't believe this retard conducted himself in such a manner and then demanded respect from the same userbase he is trying to shill for money and attention.

I certainly wouldn't mind fixing up CR's quality issues, but that would require them to actually care about quality first. And of course, I'd have to actually get hired by CR, move to San Francisco and get into a position where I could actually do something about the matter, and that's not something that can be done by simply snapping your fingers.

>>120195208
>It's for the fact that other people do it for free and often with higher quality, in many areas (but not quantity), than them.

Funnily enough right now the situation is pretty much the opposite with FAKKU - the illegal alternatives have higher output, but FAKKU hands-down beats them in the quality department. For example, here's what the scanlations look like for >>120194566 (not to mention that it's censored while the FAKKU version is uncensored). Of course, over time FAKKU's output should get bigger while the quality will remain the same (at the very least).

Jacob is the guy who owns Fakku. He decided he wasn't making enough dollars off of ad-revenue and running the site so he decided he was going to start charging money to people for the translations. He then went to Wani, which is one of the largest publishers of hentai, and asked for a contract. He got it. He then went and issued cease and desist orders to multiple websites including sad panda in order to force them to pull hentai content he planned on releasing himself for money. However, this would obviously cause a problem because how his own site Fakku got popular was hosting pirated works of hentai, often from that same Wani publisher. So he instead lied out his teeth and said he had nothing to do with it at all. He was, however, caught in the act as emails came out that showed he was the one forcing the C&Ds, and so the whole house of cards started to crumble down. Then eventually he does release his "works" and charges 10x the amount that a Japanese person would have to pay for them.

I don't hate him for trying to legitimize hentai, I hate him for being a massive hypocrite and a lying sack of shit. Also, I'm sure he hasn't actually payed anyone to retranslate the stuff he's releasing which means he's making massive profits off of it.
>>
>>120195579
1. Wani sent a bunch of DMCAs, C&Ds or whatever you call them to a bunch of sites to take down porn scanlation sites
2. Fakku got hit too, decided to negotiate, offers to be the official releases of h-manga in english
3. Posted on /a/ about it, get's shit on by /a/. Also, he sucks in explaining stuffs.
Doesn't help that he shills and samefags on /a/ like hell, gets shit on by /a/ even more.
4. Daiz came (because of course, he fucking had to stick his bald head into everything), talked to jacob, to get a better grasp of the situation.
5. Daiz came to /a/ to explain and clear up confusion jacob left.
6. More bitching, arguing and proper discussions on /a/ about how good/bad is fakku going legit going to be.
7. ???
8. Daiz is now working for fakku; something about improving the quality of their releases.

Well, that's the main details. I don't think I've missed much.
>>
>>120195774
Thank you for spoonfeeding me.

>>120195769
He does charge around 10x the amount the average Japanese person does, but not the average amount we would pay.

Don't get me wrong, it's still more than it fucking should be, and Japanese people can get it for pennies on the dollar of course.

Don't forget he was caught samefagging multiple times, bringing up Fakku in many threads and advertising like a bitch here. Of course, Daiz and Jacob will dispute every little detail of your post because they are hoping that there are newfags who are too fucking stupid to realize the history of these things (and they are right, look at J-list for an easy example), but it's basically the situation as we know it.

Especially so if they pretend to have some "moral justification" for being like that (like "buying this legitimate product wouldn't actually support the artist so I'll pirate it instead which somehow actually does support the artist hurr durr"). At the very least you should be honest about what you do, and if that means not wanting to pay for shit, then have the spine to admit as much.

>>
>>120196039
They did.

The problem is that everything they spew out is such contrived bullshit that no one believes it. And in most cases, the timelines don't match up.

For example, this post >>120195774 claims Fakku didn't start working on getting the rights to the hentai until AFTER the DMCA, but that's false because the whole Fakku books thing was in the works for months if not an entire year before the DMCA. And, in fact, Fakku announced the books almost immediately after the DMCAs came out, which is utterly impossible in copyright law as there's reams and reams of paperwork you have to fill out to even consider such a thing.

And, again, there were the emails.

>>120196152
And I really don't like the entitled little faggots who expect me to pay money for something when I can get a better value from some guys who do it for free.

>>120196039
You can look at >>120195774 for starters, it's a reasonably accurate description of what went down. Wani went on a warpath against piracy, FAKKU got hit among others, FAKKU decided to ask if they could work together instead, that ended up turning into a publishing deal, and Wani kept continuing their war on piracy.

No, you only started hearing about the DMCAs then. That shit has been happening far longer than you think. It's just been kept relatively more quiet. The Fakku crap was what really made the whole thing known everywhere.

You can accuse jacob of many shit (and I probably would agree with you), but in this case, Wani struck first. Jacob just decided to 'sell out'. Join them if you can't beat them, if you will.

>but that's false because the whole Fakku books thing was in the works for months if not an entire year before the DMCA.

Where the hell did you get this idea from? The takedowns started in April last year (picture related), and that's what sparked the conversation between FAKKU and Wani. This lead to a couple months of negotiating, and then the deal was announced in June.

>And, in fact, Fakku announced the books almost immediately after the DMCAs came out

Wrong, the deal was announced a couple months after the takedowns started.

>which is utterly impossible in copyright law as there's reams and reams of paperwork you have to fill out to even consider such a thing.

Wrong again, DMCA takedowns are ridiculously easy to send out to the point where there's companies that specialize in sending automatic DMCA takedowns. So in fact it's really the opposite - sending out takedown notices is ridiculously easy (and that is pretty bullshit, to be honest - the DMCA system is ridiculously abused by copyright entities worldwide).

>And, again, there were the emails.

What e-mails? You mean like the one that Jacob sent to E-Hentai asking to add FAKKU Books (as in actual FAKKU releases, nothing else) to the Do Not Post list? That's a pretty far cry from sending full-blown takedown notices for all Wani works.

Hey, I don't pretend like me fansubbing would somehow benefit the creators - it's simply about me wanting to watch anime in high quality, and legal options don't give the kind of quality I want. If they did, I'd definitely support them.

Though I most likely wouldn't be up for buying everything individually, I'd only want to do that for shit I actually end up liking. For everything else, I'd prefer a catalog rental model (a subscription service like Netflix). That's something that FAKKU is currently missing, but hopefully that should change given some time.

How about you read the thread? I've talked about this particular thing quite a lot already.

But to repeat, legal digital distribution has a higher quality ceiling than illegal digital distribution, and there are other things that can only be realistically achieved via legal means (like really fast release speed and consistency). If people doing things legally cared about high quality, they could easily wipe the floor with illegal alternatives. But sadly many companies don't give a shit, and as a result the illegal options end up being better.

And the main reason why I've done things illegally for years is simply because it was the only way I could work on digital distribution at all. Getting to do high quality digital distribution legally has been a dream of mine for years, and now that has actually turned into reality.

Well, FAKKU was the only site to step up and see if something could be worked out with Japan to make the best out of a terrible situation, and as a result got an incredible licensing deal out of it. I wanted to get involved to make sure the potential of that amazing deal wouldn't go to waste, and so far I've been quite satisfied with what we've managed to do and what's in the works for the future.

And really, is there really any reason to hate FAKKU besides the takedown conspiracy theories? I mean sure, it was pretty damn irrelevant before due to the existence of sadpanda, but with the legit stuff it can actually provide something that no pure piracy site can. Kinda like how CR was completely irrelevant until they went legit and actually started doing something of value (providing fast decent quality translations).
