  • Well…. Japan just killed the manga and anime community. Even though there are many paid streaming platforms, some has very low contents while the others are inaccessible in many countries. They were the only means through which readers could get access to anime and support the author by buying anime or manga related stuff. The main issue is that to satisfy one’s thirst, one need to have more than one ott subscription for quality and quantity anime and manga which is undesirable, the same issue prevails for movie and tv streaming platforms but it has be beautifully saved in the music industry by Spotify. Piracy will exist as long as these issues are not solved.

    • That is true but a lot more people and finances to put together anime TV and movies. Most studio albums are made from $20,000-$250,000, depending upon equipment used, editing, and time in studio. They spend over $250,000 just on catering food during movie productions, forget about the movie itself. Anime takes even longer because everything had to be created.

      Just because one website was shut down, it does not mean the end of the world. There are 100’s of other web platforms for anime viewing out there, with legal copyrights – not pirated material. If you worked so hard on something and then someone broke into your house, stole it from you and then gave it away to the masses for free, I guarantee you would be angry as well.
