The only thing that could get me to stop pirating anime is if they made a service like netflix. A flat monthly fee for on demand streaming at high resolutions, fansubs supported. Another fee for manga maybe. Unless they actually give us what we want there's no point in supporting their shitty fucking business model. I mean, almost forty dollars for a fucking blu-ray? Jesus christ Japan, that's no where near worth my time when it's that much more inconvenient than pirating it.

Are you high or just being payed? Streaming doesn't work at any quality. If they don't support downloading without DRM there's no reason to support their business model. DLsite does it right, and a lot of people on /a/ buy from them and similar services. Otherwise pirate or import, but supporting CR or Netflix only harms the industry and supports the shitty business model they run on.

Japan doesn't care about any of you. Japanese people make niche japanese cartoons for a niche japanese market, not a global audience with a (low) global pricepoint that wouldn't give them the revenue they need. This isn't like videogames or iTunes. Having simulcasts are already going above and beyond the call of duty, in their minds.

They simply do it to try to scare a few retards, like the ones who actually care about this.

I wouldn't watch anime or read manga if it wasn't free, most westerners won't. None of you will ever stop torrenting and start buying every single thing you pick up or watch in backlog, even if it was cheap. Because those hundreds of shows and manga will add up.

There have been arrests. They're sending people to jail for uploading shitty tanks. The Japanese legal system is fucking harsh, this could actually deter raw uploaders a bit.

>>111455893
Remember when a couple of years ago Viz asked Mangastream to take down all their licensed Shonen JUMP series? That's what they did yet they are scanlating them again.

It's impossible to stop this kind of thing. Instead Japan should see the bright sides of it: without piracy, the "Japan boom" wouldn't have landed on West. When I was still a student in the 90's most people didn't know shit about Japan or anime, it was just some country where people have weird eyes and speak some kind of zing zong language. It's completely different now and I doubt this would have happened without piracy.

I've had it with this topic. We've had many threads on this in the last 3 or 4 days. There hasn't been any new information besides people trying to troll people. So why don't we just wait until actual news surfaces that they actually accomplish something? Its like the fear mongering after 9/11 for fuck's sake. Just stop it. Nothing will likely come from something like this. They can't possibly find ways of prosecuting you overseas for pirating anime so stop worrying about it and claiming the "loss" in sales thing is dumb to no court would find that plausible in the slightest.

The funny thing is that we're actually a much larger market.
If they were to sell anime at reasonable prices (i.e. what you would pay for your regular BD-Box for an American TV Series), they could cut the middlemen and get plenty of money.

At the same time, I'm glad they're retarded at business, because if they were to exploit the Western market as they could, then they would likely start catering to casuals, and looking at vidyas and comics, they're full of shit.
So, God bless the Japanese, and their retardation at doing business.

Why should I pay for stuff I dont want? The less I and people like me buy, the more deprived and pandering anime will get. It's a total win. All I want to see are cute girls doing cute things, moeshit, harems, ecchi and the occasional mindless mecha. It seems the more precarious the industry is, the more they produce what I want. Even if they stopped making anime tomorrow due to a lack of capital, there's still enough anime to last me a lifetime.

Why do any of you retards care/ Why do I keep seeing "Oh well fuck them!!! They should make it easier for me to watch legally!"? You really think anime piracy will die at all? You really think you would ever buy all the anime you'd watch? You really think they'll make it all super cheap for everybody and somehow make their money back? You really think they actually care about western pirates and this isn't just a song and dance like all these things are in every country?

Japanese cartoons are for japanese people, like Bollywood movies are for Indians. They're not going to bend over backwards to change their entire model to try and plan a business model around what the fucking 14 year old narutard named Billy from Minneasota wants in his supercool chinese animes.

The difference between all those things and anime/manga, is that animu & mango are not sold globally, they're sold to a very small group of people located only in Japan and for a very high price, so any advantages piracy may have are rendered null and probably only hurt sales.

Now, if Japan could actually get their shit together and try to take advantage of the global anime following and rework their business model to reflect that, then it probably wouldn't matter as much and they could actually reap the benefits of piracy instead, and as a bonus maybe they could pay their animators enough to live above the poverty line and actually make animation a more attractive career.

This will never ever fucking happen, because the "global anime market" is still too fucking small and will not pay for shit. Like you said, this is not like movies, music, or videogames, which are practically global mediums. This is like a specific genre of videogame and music.

And you forget that cartoons are still for fucking kids, so any animation media like this will never, ever sell on a global market any more than it is right now. What they make then will not make up for the loss they'll miss out on in their own home country. We should be surprised it's getting licensed as much as it is, even if they are later down the line (and are still insanely cheaper than they are in Japan). We could still be living in the 80s and not even have ever heard of anything but 1 OVA a year.

My name's Matt and I'm a reformed anime downloader. There was a time, not too long ago, when I rushed home from school to check the progress of my torrents with all the thrill of opening gifts on Christmas morning. I compiled series after series, put them on CD and even made my own labels for them with photoshop. But it was a speech made at AnimeFest in Texas by Greg Ayres that got me to stop. I didn't understand just what effect I had been having on the Region 1 industry by joining the ranks of other downloaders out there. The industry was ailing and like a distracted medieval physician asked for a second opinion I was just prescribing more blood-letting. Since then I've reformed and have been buying more and more of the series I had downloaded on legit DVDs. I want to help the anime industry continue here in the US. Anime is an immersive, vibrant, fascinating art form from a culture that, as an outsider, I will never fully understand. But understand the Japanese or not, I love the art form they've created and I want it to continue and I understand that the best way to do that is the buy the DVDs, watch the shows on television, watch the shows via sanctioned websites, etc. I hope this reaffirms that there is a group (perhaps an all too quiet group) who do want to support the shows we enjoy.

I guess this is relevant again. Someone should update it to include something about CR.

Sometimes I have to wonder why studios don't skip the dubbing process.

Perhaps it helps sell a rematch to a good number of fans, but I think Aniplex, if anything, has a better business model of paying bottom of the barrel because they know 90% of people are going to hate dubs anyway and just buy the BD.

But I think these avenues would be fine if a bunch of BDs and such came out with no dubs in the first place.

It's not about hating anime. Granted, I don't condone stealing anything, but there are Japanese studios (primarily on the game side, but still) that actually outright refuse to bring their works out of Japan. I can understand if they had better avenues for people that want to watch things as they come out besides fucking CR(who really just monetized on stolen subs and pirated shows until they decided that the stream service was really the only good way to make the dish. CR probably would have had zero intent in making business partners in Japan if they didn't realize that Netflix: animi edition was the only way to reel in paying subscribers).

I actually feel like Hulu is doing the next best job with the Sailor Moon hype.

>>
>>111459373
The creators aren't doing shit to get it to us at an acceptable price.
The licensing companies who do try make it far less convenient than pirate sites.

Pirate sites currently offer the best service for the best price. How the fuck can legit sites justify themselves when their product is completely inferior to what fans do for free?

And any sort of gating that prevents me from trying new shows without paying for them is gonna stop me from wanting to try. I gave Chaika a shot because it was free and liked it, but would've avoided like the fucking plague if it cost even a sent. Now there's at least a small chance I'll pay for it at some point. Compared to 0% if I had to pay for my trying it, that's pretty good.

First 3 episodes should always be completely free, no strings attached.
Episodes should then vary between 1-5 dollars based on production budget and expected popularity.
Refunds should be expected if an episode has absolutely garbage art or animation.
When finished, series should be offered in a bundle discount, with the first 3 episodes still free.
A subscription service should allow you to get 4-5 for free, and discounts on additional episodes.
Episodes should be offered in a wide variety of downloadable, DRM free formats, including at least MKV with softsubs and chapters, in multiple filesizes, and in multiple languages, with 0 attempts at region locking.

Basically, the service should match or exceed what is provided for free by college students on their free fucking time.

I'm not asking for better than free, I listed some prices.

I'm asking for the service offered to be as good or better than what is provided by kids with a laptop. Valve did it. It could easily be worth it, if it's at a good price. The only problem is international copyright law and licensing, which means the Japanese companies have to be willing to play ball. And if they're not, fuck them. They deserve to have their shit pirated if they aren't vending their shit for its fair value. They're never going to stop it entirely, so they only have incentive to bring the price and convenience to a level where people say "I could pirate it, but it's easier, faster, and more reliable to to get it on anime-Steam or whatever the fuck it's called."

Videogames are not fucking anime. Anime are not videogames. I don't know why you fucking /v/tards find this so hard to understand. That business model won't fucking work. it won't fucking work, no mattert how many times you repeat it over and over in these shit threads, it will never happen. Ever ever ever ever.

You're right. Anime is easier to distribute and cheaper than video games, and would actually benefit more than a steam like system than video games did.

You dont understand, 5 billion has been lost in sales.

Because it's a 100% guarantee the people who download/stream that those people would have bought the works if pirating did not exist.

>>111460667
Videogames aren't anime. It won't work.
I pay for steam games for multiplayer, and trading and all that extra shit. There is nothing comparable to that in an anime, and therefore no reason that piracy will not be the better option than paying.

See how rough and grainy they look. This is probably very close from what you can get using current affordable 3d printers.
I think things will be much better in 2 or 3 years, the new makerbots that can print at 100nm are pretty great but still too expensive.

We already went through this in this very fucking thread. You need the volume of consumers to make streaming worth it. Anime does not have that. Videogames do. Videogames are a fucking massive, massive, massive industry, one of the biggest in the world right now. Anime is fucking tiny.It can't do it. It just won't fuicking work. Even with "global anime fans", which is also fucking nothing compared to videogames.

Think of comic books. They can't just go and release all their new releases for $1. It doesn't have the consumer base for it. It's a niche industry. It just doesn't work. It will never work.

I don't see what the big deal is. Unless you are some little kid(who shouldn't be on 4chan anyways) you should have enough money to get a crunch subscription. The only people who are throwing a fit are the kids who have to steal anime because they spent their allowance hanging out with their friends at the mall.

No body that should be on /a/ shouldn't have a CR subscription. If you are all Elitists who claim to love anime like you all say you do you wouldn't be stealing.

Frankly, I strongly disagree.

The fact that Japan has not sold globally is probably the main reason as to why I watch it.

If anime were to be catered for a wider audience, we will have less lolis, less fanservice, less gore, less fucking everything that made anime interesting just to pander to plebs who spout m-muh children, m-muh privileges.

Going to make a program like steam, where you dont pay for monthly, and only pay when you want to buy an anime. When you're watching it, all your other friends can see what you're watching. Also going to implement a trading system to the program. I can gift you something, or we can trade my said anime, for your said anime.

Everyone that's going to pay already pays for crunchyroll. If you don't have a CR account, you're probably not going to pay for anything else. You'll keep finding excuses about little shit that prevent you from paying.

How many times, how many fucking times do we have to say this.

And very, very, very few people will ever watch anime, because cartoons are for kids and will never be as widespread as it would need to. It would never fucking work.

Although I do think that anime creators and mangaka shouldn't be losing money over pirating, that's what websites like Crunchyroll are for. The problem is that there are thousands of animes out there, and Crunchyroll just doesn't have them all. This is an awesome form of media that should be shared across the world, and we need websites like these in order to spread around those animes that aren't picked up by websites like Crunchyroll. To prove my point, just compare the anime found on a pirated site, and the anime found on Crunchyroll. Although Crunchyroll gives revenue to creators, has better quality etc, it cannot even compare to the sheer number of animes on other free websites. This law shouldn't be passed.

They're not though. That's not how it works. Do you honestly believe that every person who pirates anime would instead buy DVDs and BDs from Japan if free fansubs weren't available? I seriously hope you don't because that's just stupid. I'm going to take a guess and say that the overwhelming majority of people here who download free fansubs would just go back to playing videogames all day if their free options didn't exist.

My family quite disagree me to watch animes since they think it was ''childish'' and they think that i should use the time I watch animes on studying. Anime really tells me many thing. Anime changed my life. I couldn't know how my world gonna be without anime. It tells me to trust in your team. Clannad are the one who changed my mind so that i can stay happy with my family. Anime is one of my life. Even it does not real BUT ITS ''REAL'' in our otaku's heart.

>Anon you seriously need to visit the Japanese internets. They hate everything.
And I say, good for them!

I actually admire and envy them for not only being so hateful, but being able to be so open about it. Meanwhile, here in the States, I can't swing a dead cat without hitting some hippie who wants to lecture me about diversity this and multicultural that, and how I'm supposed to be ashamed of who I am and humble myself before the foreign hordes. Even a site like 4chan is all "Muricans are dumb, foreigners are superior." I wonder if 2ch bans people for racism.

Seriously I could post hundreds of links but I doubt most of you can read Japanese. The ballonheads have basically made it a national police to try and provoke the Japanese government for the last fifteen years. Any of you niggers that think this is just internet shit are dumb as fuck. I was stationed in korea for two years and this is it. These fucking shit heads are the worst examples of humanity in existence.

You need an eleven IP to post there, but it is totally worth it. You won't get banned unless you post pro-kimchi messages, but that is because NIDA got so butt blasted over some figure skating bullshit during the winter olympics a few years ago that they took the boards down.

This initiative is 2 pronged. It's to pressure China ad perhaps improve Japan's trade balance with it. The US is a secondary concern since there's less of an official market for these products.

Not paying for something you would never pay for doesn't harm a company. There was no lost sale, because there never would be a sale. You could argue that its immoral to get entertainment from a product for free, but we don't make many laws on morals anon.

You have to realize that most pirates are NOT potential customers who just happen to be broke. If given the opportunity to purchase said item for a reasonable price, they most likely would not anyway even if piracy was not possible.

The only thing bad about 4chan is the fact you can't identify the person you are talking to so you can't hold them accountable for what they are saying. Therefore conversations tend to break down quickly for various reasons. 4chan is no worse than most other places. Hell 4chan is better in most ways because you will get the raw truth out of people without filters which leads to more interesting discussion. This comes to into play with more controversial topics as well.

If you can do something that benefits you and has no negative repercussions, you should do it regardless if it's morally right or wrong.

Isn't this how the world operates?

M.A.G. doesn't care about right or wrong about piracy, they only care about money.
So fuck them.

They are though. I really liked UMD even though it was an objectively shit anime. So I preordered all the BDs from amazon.jp.

If you like something support it, it's not hard.

While I do believe that the system we have in place to view anime (torrenting from places from nyaa, e.t.c) is not 100% right, I believe that japan really underestimate just how accessible anime is to westerners. We don’t have television stations that play anime regularly, whether it be the current season (which never has happened with the exception of space dandy, but we got a dub) or just above average anime. What westerners are able to get are bastardized versions of anime that are dubbed over. Most dubs aren’t able to capture what makes an anime great, and in the end of the day a subbed over anime with the original VA is usually the best experience. THAT’S the problem though. Where are westerners going to get official anime with good subs at a high quality? There aren’t stores where we can find official anime blue rays with good subs at retailers unlike Japan. Crunchyroll may say it is 1080p, but it’s not as good as its1080p BD rip counterpart. Until Japan is able to make anime with good subs and high quality that rival the downloads we have now readily available to westerners I, and many others are going to continue to pirate. Also for most people, dealing with websites like ami ami are a daunting task that they rather no try to use due to the language curve.

Whatever. I'm tired and bitter because I hate this place and I keep coming back to talk about anime and despair at how disgusting humanity is. If you're on 4chan and you don't in some way hate this place then I don't know what's wrong with you.

Unfortunately, there aren't any other decent anime boards out there. Anyway, enough with the meta shit. I'm only making it worse.

It's about fucking time. Japan should go the next step and raise the issue with the UN.

They would if they could man. But theres no way an entertainment industry is gonna get the attention of the international community. It'd be unprecedented.

This program is just like those "don't do drugs" campaigns from the 90s. Its a message. There is no real power behind it.

No it doesn't. Switch over to the english version of the website select what you want, and when you get to the actual purchasing section you can set it to a foreign address. You can only order books and DVD/BD from amazon.jp with a foreign address though. If you want to buy other schwag you need to visit a buyfag thread. The guide explains how to get anything from Nipon easily.

I have a shit ton of merch of mai waifu that I have order from Japan. It's not hard at all.

Good and bad. I mean its nice to know there is something backing up what you are speaking to in some cases.

Sadly enough, I actually sat in on his panel once. He made a handful of actually correct points, but a lot of it was just wrong or not practical. And you couldn't have a discussion with him on it at all -- he was 100% correct and if you disagreed at all or pointed out the grey areas you were just wrong etc.

Thankfully he doesn't go to nearly as many cons as he used to and shitting up the place. I wanna say I heard he went to as many as like 35-40 cons a year at one point. Mostly because they gave him free booze and he got to demand to DJ the dances and be a pedo faggot to 14yo girls.
