Women on Japanese animation, or HINANO IS NOT GETTING IN ON THE ACTION

…Yeah, I know it was mean, but I don’t write too often. Also the first thing that popped into my head. Honest.

Haven’t read the whole thing (and will not do so due to time constraints), but from the general impression, the women are taking a mature view on the situation without resorting to ELITISM and BIGOTRY.

YAKK DECULTURE. WTF IS THIS SHIT.

Still, without explaining in detail why fansubs are here to stay, here are the following points to chew on:

1.  Animé is a loss-making business with relatively few cash cows to milk and enough monetary black holes to deter profit-making entities to make a proft (unless your name is Bandai-Namco Pte. Ltd.).

2.  Animé is an extremely niche, extremely specialized market that no one really gets. Paul Krugman would throw up and get BRAIN ANEURYSMS just trying to analyze it.

3.  We still have yet to work out all the kinks in Copyright Law (nor have I found any Bibilical justification for or against it. Yet. The right to copy is like physical property, and in some senses, is, but what about TV shows?).

4.  Unless you like to enforce the law using hard force and the military, there is no proper way to enforce said copyrights.

5.  Humans are selfish creatures. Hence the need for brute force.

That should be enough to tide you over.

ON YAMAKAN: Fuck him. Seriously.

Copyrights? Hasn’t this horse been flogged, shot, cannonaded and shelled to bits already? Feb 14 is now MANLY APPRECIATION DAY.

    Because women don’t think with two things dangling from their crotch and use slightly more neurons instead?

    1: Everybody is joining the Armed Forces now since the job loss in the US amounts to about MILLIONS. So we might see some form of “brute force” sometime soon.

    2: I’ll apologize for being selfish when the late-night animu industry apologizes for not realizing that they’re different cultures outside of Asia who choose individuality over repetition.
