Summary

30 large anime studios have launched a joint venture that is sure to take a chunk out of piracy. The channel aims to have 3000 anime titles up by 2022.

30 Japanese anime companies have come together on a newly launched YouTube channel named AnimeLog to provide free anime episodes. Notable companies such as Toei Animation (One Piece, Digimon), Tezuka Productions (Kimba The White Lion, Black Jack), Kodansha (Noragami, Akira, Cardcaptor Sakura), Nippon Animation (Hunter X Hunter), Shogakukan-Shueisha Prod. (Inuyasha, Ranma ½ , Hamtaro) and Shin-Ei Animation (Doraemon, Crayon Shin-Chan) will be sharing their beloved titles on this platform. The channel aims to have 3000 anime titles up by 2022. The anime shows on AnimeLog are currently only available for viewing in Japan. But, they have plans to include English and Chinese subtitles in the future. Kadokawa and Toei Animation are already operating their own anime channels on YouTube. However,... by joining forces, there is a higher possibility of gaining more advertising revenue. Moreover, it will discourage anime fans from illegally streaming anime on other sites.

Quote

While the service has shown episodes of Black Jack and Future Man Conan to users in Japan, there are plans to bring subtitled content in English and Chinese. This could potentially be a massive blow to localization and licencing companies, with the shows producers cutting out the middle man and delivering content directly to western viewers. There have been concerns about how much supporting the officially licenced translation supports the original creators. Despite claims by some non-Japanese companies giving large investment or support to the anime industry, that the animators themselves had not noticed any major changes. How the channel aims to monetize themselves is another question. Much like broadcasting in Japan, sponsors (or rather adverts with YouTube) is how AnimeLog reportedly operates. A hypothetical free streaming service with only adverts and sponsorship to endure (that directly supports the shows creators) may be the best alternative to tempt people away from piracy. AnimeLog’s operations, reportedly stated that the service does just that. “There exists a problem of illegal video distribution service these days, but ‘AnimeLog’ will distribute only officially-licensed animations and operate as a safe channel that families can enjoy together.”


My thoughts

First off, RIP KissAnime, not that anyone here or myself used it. Second off, this is definitely going to take a chunk out of piracy AND they be making ad revenue off it as well. Maybe they'll even have channel memberships and premieres for even more cash flow. Regardless, this is an all around amazing play by the Anime Studios and I look forward to supporting them

just hope it's not region locked for too long


Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

You and I know there are parties in Japan who are going to not like this

 

And I can already smell the nasty backstabbing that is going to happen to foul up what success this free anime channel can achieve

 

And then we will be left with neither this nor Kissanime


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

20 years late.

 

This might bode well for new content, but existing content left the barn within a day of getting onto crunchyroll and funimation.

This is pretty epic, but it's going to take sooooooo loooong before even a fraction of my favourite sites contents are up there sadly. Hopefully the new stuff gets priority, a large thing with the not so legal stuff is the same day subs they crank out


I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Good, I'm tired of region limitation.

 

I tried, I subscribed to several services, including Crunchy Roll, and I kept getting denied access to certain animes because I live in the NL.

So be it, I tried the biggest French anime legal distribution. Same story.

 

VPN is not a solution for me because:

 

- Why should I pay extra while I am already paying premium service ?

- Those websites do not allow the use of VPN, and you risk to be banned immediately once they catch you.

Seeing Japanese studios finally get some sense knocked into them is a good thing. CR, VRV, Funi, etc have been alright options for people willing to pay and living in the very limited regions they service, but there is always going to be a limited audience for that. Hopefully the studios don't do extreme region locking as well. It's understandable that they wouldn't be able to do subs for every major language out there, but given how much of the world understands English they could remove region restrictions on pretty much anything with English subs without too much issue (barring existing licensing contracts, of course).

 

Nozomi and Gundaminfo have been doing this for a bit as well (they both even have dubbed releases of certain series on their YT channels) but I believe they both use region locking so it's not a great solution for people outside of those regions, barring using a VPN.

This is good because Funimation is horribly exploitive and loves to shit on creators and their works and Crunchyroll is a massive scam where they funnel money they claim go to creators into their own pockets while enforcing a strict monopoly of their own.

the original or the remake?

 

Already got my sub to AnimeLAB because they are the only one that seems to have the rights in Australia. for anything else crunchyroll without a sub works well enough.

 

Spoiler

plus animelab doesn't censor....certain things.....like CR does.

 


Judge the product by it's own merits, not by the Company that created it.

All I know is that whenever I've tried to watch anything DBZ related via Funimation's streaming service, it's dog shit slow.

 

Like, takes a few minutes to buffer an episode so I'm not constantly waiting for it to buffer, slow. And this over a gigabit connection.

 

That, and they don't have the correct version of DBZ with the metal soundtrack.

 

Will this be doing English subs only? No dubs?


Ketchup is better than mustard.

GUI is better than Command Line Interface.

Dubs are better than subs

I'll be honest, I really don't like anime, it's not my thing at all.

 

That said this is an incredibly forward thinking move by the industry. While we still have music, movie and gaming execs trying everything to stop their content from ending up on free consumption sites the Anime industry has realised what we have been trying to tell the rest of them for years. The major reason for piracy is simply a lack of availability, you solve the availability issue and most people will happily pay for a subscription to consume. The people that won't are the ones that wouldn't anyway and you can't win against those types of people.

Exactly, availability in regions and forcing people to sub to 1000 different streaming services too

AnimeLab is also regarded as one of the largest libraries under a single service and also offers dubs, so go AUS/NZ :)

 

Also their site and player isn't garbage like CR is.

Will this be doing English subs only? No dubs?

If you are talking about the original dub score by Faulconer, Funimation doesn't have it because they cannot legally use it. You can thank Faulconer's prettiness for this. Beyond that, a lot of fans of Z absolutely hated Faulconer's score and that was the message Funimation received, causing them to not use him for the GT dub and causing him to throw a temper tantrum about it.

 

Sounds like it's going to be subs only.
