What You Need to Know:
- There's a video on YouTube we just couldn't help but share, as a respectable anime website! It's a heartfelt 'thank you' from many of your favorite anime characters, and it's pretty darn touching.
- While the video is likely a PSA for anti-piracy in the anime and manga industry, it doesn't change the fact that it's really well-made, and it does give you an idea of how much we've all received from anime and manga over the years.
- So, regardless of your view on piracy, let's all have a good cry with this video, and help to support anime and manga going forward, so that they can be enjoyed for generations to come!
Reactions Around the Web
Gotta agree, especially since now, there're hardly any anime that aren't legally available online.
Many anime are being streamed online on sites like Niconico, after all.
I, for one, have never watched stuff illegally!
As hard as it can be for some people to watch anime through official sources, I think it's up to all of us to help the industry stay on its feet.
Yeah! The disc collections and figures might be expensive, but even subscribing to official streaming sites can help the companies make more great anime!
