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!
