Japanese science fiction often has subtle undercurrents of the supernatural as in Noein and Dennou Coil. (The latter is on Netflix as "Den-noh Coil" along with director Iso Mitsuo's first new series since 2007, https://myanimelist.net/anime/37914/...Shounen_Shoujo.)

I'm going to keep positive though and hope that it doesn't get to that :-)
Even if all overseas anime distributors suddenly just vanished, you can trust China otaku to provide whatever titles you want after directly getting it from Japan. In fact that's basically the way it was not too long ago

Thanks. That's reassuring.

The issue with me isn't so much if they disappear but if they become too powerful and start having a say in the creative process where they try to tailor it for Western audiences.

Two points with this. I've only started watching Anime and I am enjoying what I see. I love the attention to character and storyline but I also like the insane creativity that only seems to work in Japan. For for instance, Food Wars. It's a cookery program but they have blown it up out of all proportions where it is evaluated to akin to a gladiator battle. It works but it could never be done by a Western entertainment company.

When Western streaming companies start messing about with the content of Anime then they will kill the golden goose.

Crunchyroll upping monthly subs in Canada, Australia, Mexico and other countries, 12 total confirmed so far. I seriously doubt that has any correlation in improved quality of the platform, given their track record.

And there it is...no wonder ordering from Rightstuf was getting pricier yet again for seemingly no reason...

Edit: Merch friend explained it...Iowa's 6% state tax now applies to ALL US CUSTOMERS. Not just Iowa. Because Rightstuf is based in Iowa. International orders aren't affected by it but shipping costs are already huge anyway.

Shawne Kleckner, president and co-founder of Rightstuf, has quit.

I wonder which will come first, the price rises or the drop in quality. A hardcover copy of Crest of the Stars I ordered for them has a massive tear at the top of the binding. Still waiting for a response. I am now concerned this will happen again for the Summertime Rendering hardcovers which got delayed until December 27th.

Probably more apt to call it "cashing out" rather than quitting, I'm sure he had a nice payday when the merger/buyout went through. I'm still waiting on Summertime Rendering myself as well as a couple OOS mangas but my membership is still active so I decided to make one last preorder.
