Best of luck to him, its like trying to stop the tide coming in!

Some fairly sensible comments there, unlike the comments to the first article. Makes me ashamed to be a fan reading some of the dross coming from those people.

Wow, why are people so hostile to dubs? Did Crispin Freeman or Johnny Yong Bosch beat them up in the playground when they were kids?

Indeed. Very much the mindset of screw everyone else so long as I can get my fix.

I do love the constant 'we're not the cause' claims from them. They blame everything else such as the quality of new shows, yet they STILL watch them. If its crap then stop.

OK, the vast majority of leechers would never pay for things and in a world without the internet they'd just go without, but SOME would buy. The choice between spending money or not is pretty clear cut. And even I get very pissed off with delays and stuff not being licensed. But my backlog is so big I can cope for now ;)

The solution may be to let the industry die and start again. Shame as it will mean a lot of job losses.

Yeah I tend to prefer the original voice cast, but dubs are no bad thing in general. A really good dub is an excellent thing indeed!

And yes, you really get the feeling some anime fans just wouldn't be fans if it wasn't for free.
