Recently, there have been many instances of companies suing, issuing letters of desist to fansubbers and downloaders. These companies do not care about the fans at all. I shall convey my opinions as to why fansubbers are important to the foreign Anime industry.

During the course of this article, you’ll notice that there are some screencaps of funny fansub moments. Be advised, there is bit of crude humor.

I know this article is slightly lengthy, but this is what I strongly feel about fansubbers.

DVD/Uncensored Version of Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka

DVD/Uncensored Version of Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka

TV/Censored Version of Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka

TV/Censored Version of Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka

This is indeed going to be a hard topic to write on… Even though I have strong (vehement) objections and feelings against censorship I may have trouble turning my thoughts into words.

Throughout this article/post, I hope to inform you about the current situation, different forms of censorship, the absurdity of it all and various conspiracies that have been brought up.
