What is Occupy NISA?
Occupy NISA (or Occupy NISAmerica) is a fan campaign to pressure NISAmerica to put English dubs in their anime. More particularly, anime that were released sub-only and re-release them with English dubs (particularly Toradora!). This fan campaign is inspired by the Operation Rainfall, who had manage to successfully get Nintendo of America to release two of the three games (Xenoblade Chronicles, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower) for North American localization (and, as the name implies, a little bit of Occupy Wall Street).
Who is NISAmerica?
NISAmerica is a video game company who is well known to localize games developed by Gust (Atelier and Ar tonelico), Idea Factory (Hyperdimension Neptunia that was co-developed with Compile Heart), and their parent company, Nippon Ichi (namely Disgaea, Phantom Brave, Makai Kingdom, and La Pucelle). Nippon Ichi is quite well known for their tactical RPGs that features a lot of level grinding, lolis, and out-of-character moments. And yes, per tradition with any video game involving with English voice acting, Nolan North is in these games.
Recently, NISAmerica decided to enter the anime market. However, they have released their anime sub-only. In fact, in Anime Expo 2011, they made it officially their business policy to never give dubs to their anime and flip the bird on anime fans who prefer watching their anime English dubbed. We want to change that and make them reconsider.
What can we do to change that?
Take action! Go to their NIS America's forums and constantly complain daily about them refusing to dub their anime. Spam your ideal English dub casts of their anime in every topic (even if it is off-topic). Send feedback about their how good (or bad) their video games are and mention how pissed off you are for them refusing to give English dubs to their anime. Be aggressive and try to make counter-arguments on those who oppose you. Tell them that you refuse to buy their anime until they give English dubs to them or re-release their sub-only releases with dubs.
In addition, with the recent acquisition of Anohana by NISAmerica and being released sub-only, we are going to boycott their video games until they dub Anohana and Toradora! with the perfect English dub cast (see FAQs). The reason: because 1) NISAmerica picking up Anohana, a show that deserves to have an English dub, and releasing it sub-only and 2) Sandy Fox has the PERFECT LOLI VOICE for Menma and having NISA picking up just ruins it.
Also, we're going to heckle the representatives in every single panel until all of our demands are met.

Also, Norwegians are not welcome. Because all of you Norwegian anime fans hate English dubs.
