The Lunar New Year: (12) The RAW Problem

Some denizens of the #animeblogger channel were talking yesterday, and they seemed to be distraught with the lack of raws on WinNY and Share. I believe this was a repercussion from this incident, where the people instrumental in producing anime RAWs have been arrested by the police.

It is very understandable that a lot of RAW providers have disappeared from the scene. Is this the end of fansubbed anime as we know it?

I believe William Faulkner said it best: ‘I decline to accept the end of (m)an[ime] … I believe that man will not only endure, he will prevail.’ This was proven true with the ODEX fiasco: I believe this will remain true despite this debacle. 🙂

To everyone, cheers to anime!

    Hey Michael. I have been reading the backlog of your blog for days now, and this is as far as I’ve gotten for now.

    I must say I’m really enjoying all of your posts so far. Some of them go way over my head, I must admit, but for the most part I understand what I’m reading. 🙂

    I decided to comment on this post specifically, because I actually have something to say (and because it’s 4:55AM here and I want to go to sleep, so I’ll read the other 5 blog posts from your backlog later):
    I think the whole arrest thing will affect in a short-term matter, but after a while it will all go back to normal. You cut off one head of the hydra, two will pop up back in it’s place. 😛

    Keep up the good work,
