>Due to unforeseen circumstances we are shutting and closing down the site. We do not plan to bring it back.
W-why is this happening on every site?
What if we move anime download services to the undernet?
both the resources i use for manga and anime aren't even on that list.
Are these old men stupid? Do they suddenly think shutting these sites will halt piracy in any fucking way?
It'll always exist. I can still get movies that cost $100 million to make in 5 minutes, so what are these japfags doing.
>inconvenience for a few weeks
>fucking filesharing websites like Mediafire and Zippyshare
Nothing will change. If I want to read shit online I use panda or park anyways.
Alot of scanlators post here anyways so its not like they couldn't post the chapter here and people spread it.
>aB not on the list of targets
muh safe haven
but it is only a matter of time
>people who hate their own hobbies
What a weak person
This is probably like the 20th time now i've seen some government or organization say they're gonna take down every website I use to get free entertainment.
I've kinda stopped worrying at this point.
... I'm an art student's advertisement for cola?
I assume because it's to have one thread open. One of the other OPs before their thread died admitted that they were some outsider posting on 4chan for the first time. So maybe there is still hope for /a/.
ITT: Fucking newfags.
Most streaming sites as well as manga or anime sites are very likely owned or created by the same person.
That person probably let slip his or her real life contact info or name when registering a domain years ago or put his or her real email address somewhere on a random blog back in their naive teenage years which allowed Japan years later to essentially dox him or her and subeona the person in question.
This is the end result of getting doxxed by Japan due to careless information security despite having bare minimun contact with the staff or volunteers who run your sites.
As a result, the site owner in question goes oh shit and just shuts down everything and being that the person who got subpoenaed owns more than one anime or manga site, of course similar closing final site messages would occur.
There, now stop begging people to use your brain for you.
The fuck is Japan even going to do?
Anyways, this reminds of the shit that happened with naver, only it wont be as succesful
dammit i want to read extreme hell private martial arts highschool
>Kickass.to as an actual website name
I still laugh to this day whenever I read that outloud.
>streaming fags getting BTFO
and notthing of value was lost.
>Implying I give a shit
ITT: Newfags crossboarders
>Inb4 NYAA IS ON THE LIST TOO!
Youtube is too. Not gonna get shut down.
That you should read Hentai Kamen if you haven't already.
Rutracker is godtier.
If you have botnet browser, it'll automatically translate the page and signing up becomes pisseasy.
I thing /g/ made a infograph on how to sign up for those who don't want to use chrome.
If Nipland is smart, then this list would just exist as a sign that they comply to existing copyright laws. It doesn't imply they actually want to waste money on the fuckers. But then, we're talking about Japan here.
>taking out a bunch of porn that will literally never be monetized in the west
Exactly. I'm not sad to see all these sites go down. Nyaa going down is unlikely. Maybe the death of all these shit streaming sites will remove more faggots from anime/manga once they can't learn how to use a simple torrent.
They'll never stop the source of all this. as long as Share and PD are still alive nips will continue to upload raws and fansubs will continue to encode and sub them on other trackers or over IRC bots. Good luck taking out the source, all they can do is attack the heads and ignore the body.
Just relax. Theres probably many of the episodes still on youtube. And as for youtube being "shutdown", I think the more accurate thing is that videos that are streamed on their from randoms, will be removed, but ones that say Funimation post, will be allowed. Still, it will be interesting to see what becomes of this.
I'm not a closet homosexual
no homo bro
Yeah, it was entertaining and there's still a lot of porn to fap to after that so I don't see the problem.
>mfw I'm a robot with dank memes
and you act as if they'll never take down the sources. What then? Not every series is available legally, many only available in japan. Want to try importing ro-kyu-bu to australia?
Why do you faggots stream your anime?
>torrent is scary police will come to my door
Are you people new? This happens every 2-3 years, they attack the most popular sites and then new ones come to take its place. Tfw mangabird will become the new mangafox. In the lat 2 raids that i've been around for mangastream and one manga got BTFO only seems since recently mangastream has made a comeback but without forums or message boards in general.
Oh, no, is Onemanga on the list?!
Seriously, no one should give a fuck. They can't kill nyaa, let alone every tracker, let alone every two-bit streaming site set up in a teenager's garage.
Today I shall enlighten them all
>Man ass mad
This is a fucking stupid image and I hate how it always gets so many replies. I wish people would stop posting it.
>They can't kill nyaa, let alone every tracker,
I have been using Nyaa for years. Is there anything special about it that makes it more resistant to takedowns? Is it hosted in Iceland or something?
>le downloading masterrace
Why the fuck would i want to take the time to download every single anime episode onto my harddrive, 99& of which i'll only watch once, when i could just watch it in hd on a website? I don't have fucking google fiber.
Why can't we just watch anime the way we want to instead finding something else to be elitist about?
Will the porn version of Nyaa be affected as well?
I still see Wani posted every month.
The only thing I should really thank Jewcob for is that I should always download my hentai, because some jew faggot might come and try and take it away.
Look at all the streamfags and casuals getting BTFO.
most of this seems like it's kinda over already? Steamsites never seem to last long.
Also no I don't have autism to hang around IRC rooms or bookmark 200 different scanlators for manga thanks
online readers are a shit but they're relatively convenient
also jumps online reader is fucking shit piss garbage and they're not getting my money unless it becomes less garbage
i want to see what you become in 10 years time
The vast majority of streaming faggots will not be able to adapt. Do you know how technologically impaired the average person is? When I tell my co workers to just torrent shit instead of streaming through netflix or whatever shit they use, they think you need to be a computer-sorcerer to do it and say it's too much work.
Would you trust these runes if you never torrented in a different language?
post yfw streamfags are getting blown the fuck out.
For a moment, let's ignore anime and think about manga
For people who are following literal hundreds of series, do you really expect them to download every single one? Every time you look up a new series, do you download it off of the scanlator's site instead of viewing it on something like Kissmanga?
Because I can understand the annoyance at people who stream anime when torrents/IRC are so easy, but quality online readers for manga going down would be a serious blow, in my opinion.
Not that anything is going to happen, just spitballing here
>hurt this only is bad for streamers
>this couldn't POSSIBLY extend to take down MY sites
You stupid fucking faggots
Tempting fate this hard after it already happened with your precious "underground" panda. This is some next level retarded NEETery.
I'm also aware I should be using proxies/vpns/mysterious free wifi if I torrent but for now I prefer to stick to the method that has caused zero C&D letters to be sent to me since the last time I used a torrent.
Copyright is actually very un-American.
You know America's Industrial Revolution happened thanks to American spies and European engineers memorizing or stealing blueprints for factory machines, engines etc and fleeing to America, right?
No one cared about respecting copyright then.
It is thanks to stealing and smuggling European technology that America's Industrial Revolution could happen.
Why are the Copyright Cartel so ignorant and hypocritical of America's history?
Just don't download the latest one direction single or whatever you kids listen to these days and you'll be fine.
>NOT HAVING 6TB OF STORAGE SPACE.
>NOT HAVING A SECOND COMPUTER ACT AS A SERVER FOR STORING FILES ON YOUR PERSONAL HOME NETWORK WITH 11 TB OF STORAGE.
>being this much of a pleb not having a job to support your hobby.
Eh, not like that says much. I've found a bunch of shitty transcodes on there way more often than I like. So as far as non-animu music is concerned, I'm sticking to private trackers like wcd.
I'm fucking freaking the hell out! I can't afford to buy those over price things and with sites like PB taken down and others, I'm left with nothing much. I know I need to calm down but Im practically having a panic attack right now and this isn't good for my heart. God fucking dammit, those niptons and their 'piracy issues'. Yeah I know its an issue but jesus christ can't they do something else instead of this?
So why does it matter if an an american or european website gets subpoena'd by the japanese government? The country you live in is well outside of the jurisdiction and authority of the japanese legal system, and they have no power to enforce that subpoena.
>You know America's Industrial Revolution happened thanks to American spies and European engineers memorizing or stealing blueprints for factory machines, engines etc and fleeing to America, right?
>This is what Europeans actually believe
>it already happened with your precious "underground" panda
Shit's already back to normal. I know where to access all the lost content, the only thing different is that I can finally get some real quality uncensored rips from the wani catalog courtesy of Fakku rips.
Besides the point, this shit happens every god damn time. What does it matter? Stop fucking fearmongering and fuck off already.
Considering nyaa not only survived that DDoS last year, but anime is in that strange area where it's popular enough to draw attention from the bigwigs but not large enough for them to actually be able to get anyone but themselves to do anything about it, they can't do shit.
The only source I'd actually be worried about is the panda because the owner has caved in some respects before.
Even though PD and Share are compromised on the Japanese end for uploaders, the platform itself isn't going anywhere.
You don't even need that you faggot. I've never gotten a single letter because I'm not retarded.
Why would I ever want an anime on my HD? I barely got 1GB of music on it and not even one movie. People who download anything are literal scum. Not because of piracy, rather they are virtual hamsters and think highly of a virtual collection that they'll never ever touch again in all of their life. It's just a hoard and clutter syndrome for bytes and people who have fallen victim to this desease should never, under no circumstances, think that they are allowed to look down on other people. Instead, they should be ridiculed, and rightfully so.
Litterally the only thing of value lost is Nyaa.
>nothing is going to happen
Yet here we are 6 months later talking about this shit
If you think this after seeing megaupload die, you're a retard of the highest caliber. You're probably too young to even remember that though so you shouldn't even be here in the first place you little shit.
What treaty compels your local government to literally deport you and hand over your custody to the japanese government to face trial for copyright infringement?
I'm not familiar with that one
Fighting piracy is an old thing. From the music industry to Hollywood, you know organizations with more money and better lawyers, they've never been able to put a dent. Yes, in the short run, things get taken down etc, but it bounces back after a while like nothing's ever happened.
If fucking Hollywood can do shit, what makes you think the Japanese anime industry can?
So yes, only casuals like you panic because you don't know shit.
