Fuck you, crunchyroll

I know it sounds good but it's not available everywhere so if you are in a restricted area is not a good news. Crunchyroll has some problems about restrictions areas so even if you are a CR member - meaning you pay - you can't see those anime.

Great news for the Glass Mask fans, I've seen plenty of them all in despair over the lack of subs for the series.

Huh, I'd never heard of this, but this could be relevant to my interests. Sounds good!

Jerks I really wanted to watch that now I can't.

Wait...

Love all the people on here that don't realize fansubs do nothing for the industry but harm. If you want to continue to be able to watch all these great shows, then giving back is the only way to do so. Because if the animators and the script writers and the engineers and everyone else who makes and produces these anime, who all have families and lives outside of making something to entertain you in your spare time, don't make any money then they won't be able to keep it up.

How would you like to get your paycheck and open it up to find out there's nothing but a list of URLs where you can go and get free illegal copies of your hard work? URLs don't pay the bills mon frair, and even though I admit that I do watch fansubs of current series, I also buy them when they become available in America so that I can keep on enjoying the industry that I love. I will also make sure to pursue LEGAL means to get fast copies of anime, such as crunchyroll.com or waiting for Funi to put up FMA on funimation.com as oposed to illegal copies anywhere I can.

I know some of you just plain don't care, but when the Japanese animation industry all but falls apart and nothing more is produced, when there's nothing left for you to leech, when there's not more concept of fansubs because there's nothing TO sub, you will only have yourself to blame.

As far as this particular anime is concerned, I've not seen it, but since the first 4 eps are free, I'll check it out. Might be something I'm interested in.

I know! Don't you hate legality, professional translations, and a consistent release schedule for shows that weren't getting fansubbed anyway?

Seriously, like... what is there to complain about here?

Excellent! I've been meaning to watch Glass Mask.

Slightly confused over negative comments; no one was actively fansubbing this series anyway. @_@

That can't be good.
