Maybe if people lowered the cost of japanese cartoons (Anime) will Americans be happy. I am sorry, As much as I like anime, I will not pay 25 - 30 dollars for an average tape with 1 - 4 episodes and I refuse to pay boxed set prices of between 70 and 200 + dollars because a bunch of people get together, create a drawn series and then sell it.
Sorry, but I rather pay 20 - 30 for a real movie made, with real people and actors and not just voice acting. Funny how real movies cost a lot more to make but are cheaper to buy and you have Japanese companies that make animations complaining about how one site filled with links is considered to be illegal, when personal experience from dealing with japanese culture and its people prove that there are more Asian people, specially Japanese people downloading and bootlegging american music and movies and without permission on japanese sites selling movies that do not belong to them. The culture enjoys hiding behind their language so well.
I went once to a japanese site looking for movies for fun....They subtitle American movies in Japanese and Charge people for the downloads. They wanted people to pay the equivalent of 35 dollars for Lord of the rings: return of the king and they were a neutral japanese company and their site pages.
When most fansub group subtitle animation, they let you download it for free.
It upsets me.
Japan pirated more copies of subtitled "The Matrix" and "Lord of the ring" movies than most can count. They are playing the same game, but we don't sue them when they do something but they do when its animation.
