Japanese goverment's Manga-Anime-Here site has just opened.

Maybe those 15 some-odd animu and mango companies needs to put up resources to make animu and mango that can actually SELL outside of Wapan (and stop sucking otaku dicks). Hopefully that would stop half of the bleeding.

It helps the anime industry in that it helps producers who make money on licensing deals to offer legal streams. It doesn't help the actual artists/studios involved, so most people don't (and shouldn't) give a fuck.

MPAA/RIAA/etc use it, so every anti-piracy group has to also use it. that's how it works, when enough rich people say the same line of retarded bullshit that isn't true, it actually becomes true and it would be wrong to not use it as much as possible.

Ok folks, scanlation still wins. Japs seems to think that Anime fans outside Japan = Americans. But that's okay. Looks like we 3rd worldians are still free to scanlate since we're not in their target audience.

XDCC is quicker and downloads from the start so you can play it while it downloads.
The disadvantage is it's a lot less convenient than just setting up an RSS feed that does everything for you, but there's probably some script out there that negates that problem.

That's the problem. I'm german and there's not one acceptable streaming service especially not for anime. All we get are a very few big and/or ancient shows, mostly horribly translated and dubbed(you murricans don't know how good your dubs are compared to the disgusting bullshit we get) without any japanese sound or subs at all. Asking me to stay legal is like an insult.

That's because companies have to license things by country. CR will only license something in a country if they think they will make money from it.

Actually that's because someone has licensed the title in your region to sit on it or is planning to do so, it's not entirely CR's fault.

It completely ruins it though. People in the blocked regions are just going to pirate so they don't have to wait.

Imagine living in a culture where after a long day after work/school, you cycle down to your local manga store or go into the city, you bump into all the otaku regulars you know, all shy and buying their products quietly. All the latest releases are on the shelf and you've saved up all the week for the next edition. Anything and everything you could want is there, it's raw, it's new. On the wall you notice a poster advertizing a live show featuring your favorite seiyuus. It's in a few months and it's only two towns over, so you decide to save up and go. When you get home after buying your manga, you switch on the TV and the latest anime is streaming live, fresh on the airwaves. Your bros come over later to masturbate to some ero comics you all bought at the last Comiket, taking it in turns weekly to swap and enjoy.

Now compare that experience to paying for shit streaming of nothing but shounen. The experience will never be the same. Hell if I lived in Japan, I'd happily buy everything. But we don't live in such a culture. Instead I can buy shit CDs and DVDs from music shops that are closing down, hipster clothes and freedom fries on every corner.

If you pay for CR though that's you saying you're happy with CRs service. American or not supporting CRs awful banding issues, questionable translations from 1/2 staff is silly.

I imported some shows and manga after finishing them illegally. I'm too poor to just buy everything, but I support the shit that deserves it. But how should i know if something is worth supporting without consuming it? The situation would be different if i was a nip and could see this shit on TV, but i'm not japanese. I'm a kraut. There's little to no way to watch a non-shounen anime or something recent,especially in a good quality(german anime translations are the devil), without going illegal. Also streaming, be it free or paid, is a joke here.

To make it short: Fuck you.

Is there anything this site or any of these sites actually offer to me as a consumer that makes it an attractive option over piracy?

I pirate anime because it is immeasurably more convenient and cheaper than any of these services. Until individual products or a service they are part of is 1) attractive over piracy and 2) more convenient than piracy, I have no reason to "help the industry" as a consumer.

Dear OP
Dear M.A.G
Not pirating Animu and Mango is pure shit,
You don't go to the supermarket and buy a Yoghurt just to look at the package.
I bought all my Anime after pirating it.
Anime isn't cheap, not everyone has enough money.
I don't wanna spent 60USD/50EURO/7000YEN on something I open once to realize its pure bullshit and I rather bought a gun with that money to shoot myself in the face rather than knowing Iw asted that much money on just one DVD.

Pirating Anime and Manga is love.

CR has 200,000 subscribes, the most expensive subscription is only $50-60 a year? They have to pay all of their costs out of that and make their own profits.

B-but I like the culture..

But yeah, I see what you mean. They've had some projects though. Anime Mirai does so indirectly, and the "Animator Dorm" fund-raiser was also completed a while back. But I see what you mean, and I think that if they got more money, the companies wouldn't ease any of the load of the animators backs as the first thing. But I mean, it's totally different here. You can see Bahi blowing his ass inside out because he's from "not-Japan" and is used to having freedom to do what the fuck he wants, and he looks like a complete retard whenever he tries into Japanese.

Tell me when they enable downloading. Making me pay for my anime and still not allowing me to own a copy of it is not something I'd call a nice deal. And before you compare it to going to a movie theater, they don't offer me a huge screen and sound system on CR, on the contrary, I'd get a much lower quality than I do with pirating.

Honestly, CR is probably as good as a streaming site can be. It's much better than all others including and especially Japanese ones.

Yes. They have been getting better at it but because their original models were built over cutting the world up into regions and physically controlling the distribution of content between those regions they got royally fucked when the Internet got to the point where you could easily transfer the content over it.
Now they have to rebuild their models but they're being really slow about it, which is probably in part because they are trying to conduct all these lawsuits at the same time.

Piracy creates a larger, happier international userbase and acts are free advertising, allowing many more fans to access anime

Forcing officially licensed streaming creates a smaller, more restricted userbase and kills interest since few services are really successful, block users in non-approved countries, and results in poor quality videos with low-quality subtitles due to cost cuts and lack of competition making companies lazy (crunchyroll is a great example)

Ending piracy will be an effective method to making slightly more money while killing off the future of anime for ever
