>North American anime distributor Media Blasters is soliciting the Yosuga no Sora: In Solitude Where We Are Least Alone television anime
I spat my drink out when I saw this. What the fuck are they thinking?
There's an Oreimo audience here?
Anyway, I'm not even sure they'll be able to get that audience for this show here in the States.
I love Yosuga, but the moralfags will pan it much harder than Oreimo. Even MAL (consisting largely of losers that pay for anime) have Yosuga at a 6 or something.
>caring about anime
Are you high, or just retarded?
I for one am glad they want to bring it over.
It would test the boundaries of free speech that are in sore need of testing.
If this shit airs and gets successfully defended, then there is still hope yet. If it gets banned, you might wanna think about moving to some other country.
Nothing. Media Blasters has been in the hentai business for ages now so this is par for the course. YnS is hentai that pretends to be deep so this is right up their alley.
The best aspect of YnS is how understated most of it was.
The vast majority of anime produced today feel the need to hit you over the head with every joke and plot development.
In YnS, things just happen and the characters don't overreact as if the audience is too stupid to understand what's going on.
I really appreciated it upon my second viewing.
I suppose there's no arguing with definitions, but that still doesn't make it bad. If everything was up front and stated all the time a lot of media would be a lot less interesting.
>straight to DVD release
How stupid can you be? As long as it's not shown on networks, they don't care at all.
Is it censored, this affects whether or not I will
I hope so, if only so we could see how awful it could be.
People have this retarded attachment to their 15 year old DVD players and are apparently too poor for a 10 year old blu-ray player.
And for some reason BDs are still more expensive than DVDs even though they've been around since the early 2000s.
Not to mention that the majority of consumers see "no difference" between DVD and BD.
Releasing a DVD now would be the equivalent of releasing a betamax in 1995.
> North American anime distributor Media Blasters is soliciting the Yosuga no Sora: In Solitude Where We Are Least Alone television anime, and plans to release the complete series on DVD on May 26 for the suggested retail price of $29.98.
$ 30 for this thing!!!!
There is. Or rather, there was? Oreimo had a huge following but most of the fanbase ended up being butthurt cause the cat lost.
I honestly think YnS will be fine.People going into it will mostly be aware of what they're gonna watch.
$30 is pretty cheap for a complete series from what I remember, but since it's DVD and not BD it's useless because everyone interested in the series has already downloaded the BDs.
These aren't BDs they are DVDs.
Considering the actual porn Media Blasters survived on for years, I doubt it'll be an issue. In fact, that's the audience they are going for, people who are both horny and don't know that the Internet exists.
They are the US anime distro equivalent of Lazarus. Them still licensing things should not be a surprise.
