Dubbed by some guy as the largest English speaking Anime festival in the world, the Animation Festival Asia held in Singapore this year was quite entertaining. They gave away Gundam figurines, they had a maid café, they had perverted artworks of young girls in skimpy school outfits, they had everything. But that was nothing compared to this:
Shit, my photos are blurry. But you get the point.
Anyway, it’s funny how anime festivals have such a huge fan base, when there’s so much that isn’t being legally sold. And if you do actually find the series, movie or manga you’ve been searching for, you’ll realise that it’s too expensive. Why spend half your salary on a series when you can download it for free?
But then, if everyone is downloading the stuff for free, how are the creators making any money?
Crunchyroll has tackled this problem by working with various companies to stream anime legally, and quickly. Since it started to legally stream Naruto episodes on demand, illegal downloads were cut by around 70%.
To sum up today’s entry, I will leave you with this.
