    kuroshitsuji trouble

    Post by Nanashi_Zokune on Mon Aug 16, 2010 9:14 pm

    *copy/pasted from anime news network*

    Yana Toboso, the creator of the Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji) manga and anime, criticized unauthorized videos and downloads of anime and manga in a Sunday blog entry. She began by noting that she does not like to preach, but felt like saying a few words about this issue. Both seasons of the Kuroshitsuji anime are currently streaming in Japan on the Nico Nico Douga website, and Funimation is also streaming the two seasons in North America. However, Toboso emphasized that watching the anime on sites besides the official video-streaming websites is prohibited. She added that reading the manga through unauthorized downloads, CD-ROMs, and other means besides Square Enix's publications is prohibited in Japan as of 2010. (Yen Press publishes the manga in North America.)

    Nevertheless, Toboso reports that she has been getting more email messages and letters from fans like the following:

    "I read them from ROMs I borrowed from a friend. LOL"

    "I found and watched all of them on an overseas video site!"

    "I became a fan with the second season, and then I watched the entire first season on an overseas video site. lol It was very amusing!"

    Toboso said these actions are "unmistakably" illegal and added, "It is the same as shoplifting or leaving a restaurant without paying the bill." According to Toboso, if people watch anime illegally or download them without authorization, "we creators and voice actors will not eat; this is no joke, we will starve and die. This is not 'lol.'" She then said, "These actions, to paraphrase a certain Fullmetal character, goes against the Law of Equivalent Exchange! If you continue doing them, I really cannot make either anime or manga again. […] Unauthorized videos + downloads are wrong, absolutely!"

    Yeah, I feel kinda bad now, too. ;-; I should start watching my Kuroshitsugi on the official websites now...

    Also, Toboso got even cooler by mentioning FMA.

    OMG I love Kurushitsuji~

    Yes I watch online streaming. So what? I don't see it as shoplifting. They have to share anime with the rest of the world. =w=

    I don't really feel bad about this at all. XD;

    Like, I'll watch an anime online, and if I like it, I'll go buy it. Chances are if I finish it, I'll buy it, because if I don't like a series, I'll drop it really fast. XD;

    I'm not gonna go buying random anime titles without knowing wtf I'm buying first. By watching a few episodes online, I get a taste of what kind of anime it is and then can decide whether I want to spend my money on it or not. ^u^

    Most of the anime I've finished entirely isn't available to be bought in America yet though orz One day ;w;;;;

    Actually, she's not saying you can't watch online... But Funimation streams the series it has the rights to online in North America.
    It's watching it in other places that's bad, or downloading it or stuff.

    So I feel bad about using one of the other websites just because it was slightly more convenient.

    you know how there are some ads during some youtube videos specifically during copy written material?

    well, those ads are important. the ads help them and the content, and as for watching it on the funimation site itself it helps bring in hits and revenue so they can find out people like the series and bring more of it over.

    so, when you watch it somewhere else those hits go down. that's why most authors, writers, directors, ect. ect. call it shoplifting a lot when they've even provided a way to stream it online.
