    Thumbs down DN licenced by Viz, LE and TW canceled

    Well... good things seem to come to an end too soon. Viz has announce the got the rights for Direct to Own and Direct to Rent. Aparently it's going to be subbed soon after the japanese version is aired, obviously for a charge. I couldn't gather the strenght to read the article (animeondvd.com/news/pr.php?pr_view=915) published about the licencing.

    As a consequence, LE and TW have already canceled their work on DN. Don't know about animada (couldn't find their webpage), still their might be some hope left for us.

    There is one thing I don't get, Viz bought the right of DN for America only, so those living outside the US should be fine right? For example, some dude from NZ o AUS could still do subbing and distributing, right?


    Try to have a nice day

    And lets face it Death Note anime probably has enough popularity that one of the rogue or non-us groups might pick it up/keep it going.

    Damn... why are they stopping? People outside America need their subs too! Well, on one hand it's Viz, doing something new that could really take off and become industry norm. Licensing companies would provide their own subs ready to dl over iTunes or something, and then later release DVD's thereby maximizing the money they get from their license and allowing them to license and release more stuff here. But, I can see Viz charging upwards of say, 4 or 5 bucks per ep, and not only that but also slapping half assed subs on these eps too. I sorely hope that's not the case, as i'm willing to support this, but if it's done right. And I hope at least one or two sub groups stick around to keep Viz honest.

    A French fansub of episode 13 just came out...if all else fails, we can always watch that...but then again, I don't think too many of us understand French.

    I suppose if permission was obtained from the group, an English text translation could be created based on the French version...but that's a double translation, and it's nowhere near as good as actual subs.

    Damn. Let's just hope a group or two continues subbing.
