I don't think I'm denigrating platforms such as ADN, Wakanim or Netflix but I was trying to make you understand that the streaming market in terms of Japanese animation is already saturated, even though I think they respect the authenticity and soul of Japanese animation. I have a lot of fears about the creative freedom of the studios when Disney gets involved, especially seeing what they've done with other licenses they've acquired in the past, and it's fundamental that they're out of the Japanese animation business, especially since they already have quite a bit of monopoly and financial resources to have even the slightest interest in playing the troublemaker. In any case, I am fiercely opposed to it and it remains my opinion and I respect others without disturbing their free thoughts.

Watching anime legally becomes more and more inconvenient and expensive. Only piracy wins in this competition.

Also i dont know why people are so doom about this, this is exactly what netflix did years back ... did it affect literally ANYTHING ? No. Just another fat company from west going into anime. Which will change nothing.

Disney getting into anime was only a matter of time. some anime nowadays can already cover it's production costs from licensing money alone, and now licenses will cost even more.

I wish the animators and industry grunts conditions improves at least.
