They're not snatching it away. It's not being 'taken away' from you.
Sigh.

Everytime some popular series gets licensed, people complain. #chronoGen's channel this afternoon was full of "F*** ADV', 'LET'S GO BOMB THEIR HEADQUARTERS', 'HOW COULD THEY DO THIS TO US', etc...

Get a grip. Buy the DVDs when they come out.

Hoho... predicatable responses here. Anyway NoSanninWa's reply in the Maburaho thread also applies here:
Quote:
That is just one of the risks we run by watching these shows fansubbed. There are advantages and disadvantages of watching fansubbed anime.

We gain the feeling of elation at seeing brand new anime. We also gain a feeling of superiority from being able to watch subbed anime that was shown in Japan only a few weeks ago, knowing that most of our country will not be able to see it for years to come. On the down side we run the risk that the show will become licensed before it is finished, in which case we learn the crashing depression of discovering that we will have to wait years before we can finally see the ending.

These highs and lows are the rollercoaster of being a fansub fan. You just have to take the bad with the good.
I may also note that a lot of anime is financed indirectly (Japanese companies
expect the title to be licensed for extra $$$) or even directly by US anime companies
(such as Dead Leaves by Manga Entertainment).

So if there were no US companies who'd license titles, there would be
much less anime to watch in general!

bummer. I wonder if I'll ever finish watching that series now. Probably not.

That's why there's another option of buying the R2 DVDs from Japan.

I know that in Fullmetal Alchemist's case, I'll keep getting the raws each week even after it's licensed. Even if I don't understand, I'll kinda pull through. It is really depressing when a series gets subbed, but we can't do much about it, unfortunately... (except bomb ADV's headquarters )

Not to burst your bubble or anything, but Full Metal Alchemist will more than likely be licensed before it's finished. It's not even halfway through the series yet, and it's a widely popular series that is a shoe-in for licensing.

I can understand peoples frustrating in not being able to watch a new show they like on a regular basis after licensing, but come on people, you can't expect these companies to be mindful of people illegally downloading subs. :|

If you really like the series then you'll support its US release.

Cool. More stuff for me to look forward to buying when I finally get enough money to. First up is FMP; I hope ADV does a good job of it. I just noticed today, so I figured I'd check the forums to see what was up with CC. I am a little disappointed, but I'm quite glad I got to see ep 15 before it got taken off! It would have been quite a nasty cliffie otherwise . . .

And as for the rest of you who're griping about it, too bad. Just buy/rent it when it comes out on DVD. Support the industry. If you don't buy the DVDs for series you like, who will? And besides, we can't have the industry going broke, can we? If it does, anime fandom will cease to grow the way it has! So, all I gotta say is, sit tight, wait for the DVDs, and buy 'em! I just hope they come out 4 eps/DVD . . .

They said it was slated for a 2004 release. ADV are actually fairly fast when it comes to DVDs, also somewhat generous on occasions. Expect 4-5 eps per disc at around 17-25 USD (17 USD based on dvdpacific prices)

In that case Naruto shouldve been licensed long ago.

Why ADV? Why not Sony?

Do you honestly believe that there aren't two, three of more companies
persuing Naruto? That series will be a goldmine to whomever gets the
license. Just think of the profits they could make off the merchandising
rights to the series. I doubt there isn't a bid on it that doesn't include
North American merchandising rights.

Honestly, the only reason I believe Naruto hasn't been licensed yet is
because no one company has yet to make the bid that makes the others
look small by comparison.

They only license movies.

It's funny I've only watch the frist two ep of Chrno Crusade and I was looking to download a third one when I read this. I'm still undecided on the series but I will check it out on the Anime Network (Digital Cable rocks). Then if I decide I really like it I'll get it on DVD.

I feel sorry for the people who like to download and judge fansub groups. Downloading 4320948 diffrent versions of an episode one must be time consuming.
