crunchy roll - killing fansubs :(

It is with great sadness that I read Dattebayo´s post on the possibility of Crunchyroll acquiring the rights for Bleach.

Suffice to say that what I´ve watched in crunchyroll sucks. Fansubs are a very serious things for fansubbers. You can find high quality fansubs at HD qualities very few hours after a release. If the show is popular, download speeds for torrents or DDs are optimal. It really means that anyone in the world, and I speak for Costa Rica, can get to see their favorite show almost in real time with Japan.

There really is no point of comparison between streaming an episode from youtube or downloading a 350+ MB file encoded in h264. I have a large monitor and the difference is painful. One of the coolest things of anime are the visuals, and there just isn´t enough justice done to the anime producers in a streaming version.

This is my public wish: I hope Crunchyroll doesn´t get Bleach. In fact, I wish Crunchyroll stops existing. I would much rather pay Dattebayo for their quality, fast subs that I can download using bittorrent (probably the most effective way of sharing files), than any streaming service.

I wish everything could be free in this world, but hey, people need to eat and be able to build their life. So, I just need to vent, and state that streaming media should not be the future of fansubbing.

Bleach 271 - we see ichigo´s kick ass form!

So if you´ve been living under a rock, it´s time to wake up. Ichigo is full fledged in the anime against Ulqiorra´s double release and Aizen is ready to kill everything in the manga. Gin´s bankai is out and you wouldn´t recognize Aizen now that he is meshed with the hougyouku!

Hakuouki 5,6,7 :D

Hakuouki just took a turn for the really cool. It turns out the villains have super healing abilities, and the little girl does too. Pretty cool knowing now the villains want the little girl off the shinsengumi and with them!

Hakuouki 4 and Bleach 268

Pretty cool. Hakuouki's "villains" now ere formally introduced, and Bleach 268 is a continuation of Ulqiorra's and Ichigo's fight. What I don't understand is why Ichigo hasn't put on his mask yet...
