Well, in am interesting turn of events, lots of manga writers/ authors have gone to parliament to ask for a bill or some sort of IP protection to prevent this sort of thing from happening.
The general premise will be to stop Hollywood/ SJWs from butchering (see Hollywood's DBZA (yes I will not let that travesty be forgotten)) and censoring or redubbing (see this anime or Dragon Maid dub changes.)
It would compel studios to adhere to source material as close a possible without "cultural changes being made to suit current year" or to just stop shjt adaptations from damaging IP reputation and possible sales.
@Samblob, cultural changes to suit current year...I am going to bite the next person who proposes that to me...
@Bad Suggestions, the most interesting incident of this I have heard of in the last year was a digital pinball reproducer (pinball fx3) having to change a girl in a bikini on a pinball backboard (which you really never see) to wearing a t-shirt, changing red blood to green slime, and yet they left 'the king is gay' on another table. Bizarre
@TheMightyImp, if you keep making me grind my teeth like this I’m going to send you my dentist bill.
@Samblob, when the fvck did Hollywood try to take over dbza? I’m gonna kill them
Them being Hollywood, TFS you guys are doing a great job, keep it up
@Samblob, if only the Artemis fowl books got those protections. They couldn't even call butler "butler" because they cast a black actor (which is fine, butler is described as Eurasian) and having a smart mouth little Irish kid snapping orders to a big black "butler" isn't a good look these days.
@Samblob, do you have a list of all anime sjws have butchered?
@Bad Suggestions, oh senpai bite me harder! oWo.
Lol nah I fvckkng love manga and I hate most of the american adaptations because they really change so much dialogue and premise in a good story that was really established. Not sure I agree its sjws or just Hollywood in general and american media that tend to change it to try to make it more culturally digestible. I'd actually argue (and I ain't now sjw) it's more of a gentrification of other cultures to be more conformed to what is comfortable.
@ Tobias Widower, god that movie pissed me off. They butchered the characters so bad and tried to combine 3 books into one without having the russian mafia involved at all who were the ones to kidnap Artemis's father or even Artemis's mother. Eurasian is so not black with white hair and eyes. He wouldve stuck out like a sore thumb in Russia. Wtf was with juliet she was supposed to be like 17 and a quit being a body guard to wrestle in mexico. Dont even get me started on Jane Judy dench as commander root. Fowly as basically an Indian IT guy/centaur was way more racist and offensive than just trying to stick to the books.
@Bad Suggestions, why don't we all just calm down a bit and eat jelly donuts while smoking our lollipops?
@Prince super Vegeta , Perhaps referring to that one movie that shall not be named.
I saw the whole series, the best border line hentai I ever seen
@megamanx181x, where might one find the sauce for the purpose of getting lost within it?
@derkthederp, Interspecies Reviewers.
Kissanime is an ad riddled site, but works most of the time. AniStream is a great app that I know is on Andriod idk about iOS and if you just stream is to a chrome cast it autoplays and doesn't have ads. But.. for this show you might want your headphones.. unless you live alone
@derkthederp, animeultima is pretty good. Got subs and dubs for most anime
@megamanx181x, 10/10 would recommend?
@Swagnamite, oh hell yea, lost of variety in women
@derkthederp, interspecies reviewers, google it with streaming and find a site and enjoy
@megamanx181x, The manga is really good too and there are some things in there I wish had been in the anime. My wife and I are looking forward to the 4th volume coming out next month and wishing they had a second season.
@kles76, the manga is still going,!?
@derkthederp, as an Australian animelab has it ..... best borderline hentai comedy ever
@megamanx181x, is it better than high school dxd?
Isn't this incredibly disrespectful to the people who made the anime and also grounds to revoke their copyright on?
@Your Waifu, if not it should be.
@Your Waifu, yes and no to your questions respectively
@Hot Coffee, well that's a bummer for the second one. You'd think there'd be laws to prevent that seeing as it can very easily be interpreted as intentionally damaging the value of the copyrighted product.
@Your Waifu, yes, though there are exceptions, but only if they’re worked into the sale of the copyright: for example, if you created an anime and decided you no longer wanted to manage the distribution and development of the show but you wanted to ensure the original anime was always available for viewing, you could sell the copyright with a clause in the purchase agreement whereby the property reverts back to you if the buyer took the anime off the market completely for 6 months and had to make the anime available for viewing or purchase for a minimum of 3 consecutive months before the property could be sequestered/made unavailable.
But you can’t do it retroactively.
@Hot Coffee, it's not that they didn't want to manage distribution of the anime, it's that them being a Japanese company with no western branches, they have to hire translators, and due to the way the anime industry has ended up working those translators end up owning distribution rights for the translated versions, which they for some reason have the option of just not using as long as they renew their copyright every so often.
Funimation also kept advertising several series as being “simulcast” despite the dub falling several weeks behind the sub for some series. My Hero Academia’s dub fell so far behind, that I just cancelled my subscription. And I know, dub is for filthy casuals, but there are a select few series where the dub is quite good, in my opinion. MHA happens to be one of them.
@NotFlat, to be fair in MHA's case it fell behind because of the current pandemic
@Sexy Homunculus, IIRC they fell behind a few months before the pandemic began. I was still living in my old apartment and I don’t think I was working from home at the time, so I’m pretty sure the delays began before the coronapocalypse. But honestly, I’m not certain.
@NotFlat, I've been watching the latest season on Toonami, and at the start of every episode since mid-March there was a disclaimer shown for a few seconds saying the voice actors were all recording in their own homes while receiving direction remotely via zoom or whatever method of communication they were using.
To your point though they probably did have some delays they were dealing with before the pandemic, but the ensuing lockdown was the main delay for the past few months.
It's shows like this that makes me scratch my head when I heard Japan is heavily censoring Cyberpunk 2077.
Imma just say this is getting DMed to lord nux
