Watch as I, Lelouch Lamperouge, discuss my daily actions and stuff! And to get her say, C.C. loevs pizza.
The "Next Generation" of Anime Fandom
I'll come out with it and be straight to the point. The next generation of the anime fandom downright disturbs me. I've been reading comments from other fans on sites that have illegal distribution involved and other locations and I'm utterly disgusted by what the future has instore for this fandom. If this is truly the future of the fandom, it has no hope. Ever since Geneon dropped dead on us, I've been relooking at the general anime fandom, that you and I are apart of, and what did I see? I saw something hideous. Lowly, pathetic beasts will sadly become the next generation and I don't see that changing.
Here are a few sample comments from sites I've visited...
"WHY THE F... IS EVERYTHING GETTING LICENSED. THIS SUCKS."
"Such-and-such is taking all the good anime off.."
"i wanted too watch it but its licensed wahhhhhhhhh"
"going to be removed! watch it quick!"
"aww crap its licensed o well"
"i hate when anime gets license b/c i cant watch it nomore"
There are hundreds, probably thousands of comments similar to those 6 I found most saddening. As someone who supports this industry, it hurts me and I'm not the only one I know. If this is the future of the industry and fandom, we might as well find a new one to latch onto.
