Would KickStarter Works With Everyone?

Well that was the question that we asked three anime industry people during the last Anime Festival Asia 2012 at Singapore. This was in regards to the earlier news of Masaki Yuasa's decision to use crowdfunding, in this case KickStarter to fund his upcoming movie, Kick Heart. This was something quite new in the anime industry, and we were quite curious to heart other people's view about it, especially ones that are involved in the industry. And we have the perfect opportunity during AFA, as we asked this question to Shinichiro Watanabe, Kamiyama Kenji cialis generic as well as Tomohiko Ishii. So what was their answer? Read on (more…)

Why We Would Benefit With an Official Local Anime Streaming Site


No, I am not crazy. I am sure most out there would wonder why does someone wants an anime streaming service when the usual practice for anime collectors in Malaysia would just to download an anime title of their liking from torrent sites and then keep them inside their hard disk. Honestly there is nothing wrong with that (figure of speech, as you ARE actually doing something wrong by pirating) but I honestly think it’s a good time to introduce a change in the local culture here.
