Bandai and YOU: What it really means f*ck over a fanbase and then go ahead and cause another AnimeJunkies incident.

August 24, 2006 at 7:57 am 10 comments


Yes, people, I’ve heard about how Bandai is gonna fire lawsuits left and right and do international litigation over some bloody fansubs. This entire situation has been blown entirely out of proportion by everyone. In fact, by saying this, Bandai has just shot it’s ass by saying LOL FANSUBS SUCK. And well, them fansubbers do need a bloody wakeup call. Seriously, I don’t wanna have to see this happening every four years.

Now, let me tell you why Bandai deserves it.

It has to do with that godawful CE Gundam. Now, I’m not saying SEED or Stargazer sucks (Stargazer is really, really good, and SEED could have been better), Destiny basically ruined the entire Gundam franchise. All in the name of capitalism. They would rather f*ck over a fanbase and then laugh to themselves as the hapless fanboys line their pockets with money. Believe me, if it weren’t for the f*cking fanboys, Bandai wouldn’t be half as popular, or a quarter as big, as it is now.

But what does it all really mean? Will Solid State Society suck monkeyballs? I have a good feeling it will. And boy oh boy will it bomb.

Then again, these tactics seem rather barbaric and overdue, even for Bandai themselves. And why now, instead of when Destiny aired? My guess is that since CE makes an assfuckton of cash for them, they’ve decided to quietly ignore it. GITS, on the other hand… … … isn’t as popular as most poeple would believe. Now, I’m not pissing off any GITS fanboys here, and my intention was never to piss off any GITS fanboys. And if I did, I apologize. I’m just saying GITS does not make mad cash like that bloody CE.

And as for the arrogant fansubbers who want to do it, give me a f*cking break. The only thing you are going to cause is another AnimeJunkies incident. And if you are to do that again, I will personally come into your IRC chatrooms and scream repeatedly YOU DESERVE EET when you finally get convicted for copyright infringement charges. Who the f*ck asked you to publicly reveal your plans, you arrogant AJ clones. EDITorz: Okay, so them fansubbers have wised up. Good for you! But my statement still stands.

And for those of you fresh on the Internet and have yet to witness the horrors of the Internet, here’s a summary of the AnimeJunkies incident. I apologize to anyone in advance if this brings up bad memories.

As you all know, AnimeJunkies were horrible fansubbers. Goddamn /b/tards, too. Remember “MASS NAKED CHILD EVENTS”?. Yep, they’re responsible for that. Anyways, it seems that a coalition of companies have nicely told fansubbers to kindly stop fansubbing licensed series, and do you know that those /b/tards said? LOL NO U FANSUBS 4 LYFE. Then came the lawsuits and everyone hated them.

And yes, people, things can get blown out of proportion if you continue to believe fansubs are better than domestic releases. Even though we are a community(supposedly), we are technically better than those /b/tards. So please stop this haughty elitist attitudes and eat some humble pie. Before I shove it in your faces.

And now, a completely unrelated picture that I find oh so cute.

OSHII SPOILARZ

Yes, this is a spoiler. And yes, this is what’s causing all the silly problems in Hinamizawa. And yes, she wants a hug.

    Uh Solid State Society will rock. And the only reason why CE Gundam is more popular is because girls like it. GIrls like the sappy illogical love in GSD. Girls can’t tell good animation from bad reused scenes. Girls can’t tell when Freedom is overpowered. Girls are the devil.

    On the other hand, these Devils are not interested in GitS, thankfully. Since this is the ORZ blog which specialises in anger management, let’s churn out furious spurious stuff.

    There are just some bad apples in the bunch. That’s the way I see the state of fansubs in this day and age.

    Ah, that controversial subbed statement. It was unfortunate that I wasn’t around to see that brouhaha.

    I’m not in a position to either comment Bandai’s moves, or side with the haugty elitistic fansubbers, for I’m still new to this whole incident. (That means I need to do more research on the AJ incident. My Googling skills sucks.)

    Whatever it is, I hope there should be a resolution, even though I might be thinking it wishfully, with the American administration going the way of Bladerunner/1980s fascist-government-storyplot movies.

    BTW, regarding the pic: そうなんだ? (To take from a kid’s magazine in Japan.)

    Yer … I totally agree with the fact that “One bad apple spoils the whole bunch.”
    But somehow I feel that Bandai is over agressive over this issue espcially when they specify on GITS:SSS alone

    Performing necromancy.

    Drmchsr0 is right. One bad apple ruins the whole bunch.

    It’s not just the elitist fansubbers, but elitism in general. And it’s not just the fact that Bandai had shot itself in the foot, it’s that Bandai basically killed itself. The best they can do now is Code Geass, a fansericy robot show about Americans attacking Japan.

    The winds in the House and Senate of the US are changing. And hopefully it’ll trickle down to the media industry in Japan.
