I'm neither arguing or contesting your ethics, I'm an artist my self, and would some day hope to market my own anime.
I just don't know any way to buy something I have no way of finding for sale.
Also, Crunchyroll is not always a reliable resource for the series I hope to see.
I would wish there were a subscriber service which provided this. Even though I have Netflix and this is a subscriber service, they too fall short on the series and episodes I would hope to see.
One day I hope to contribute to these companies and independent artists who produce the works I enjoy watching, but first I have to know how to contact them and secondly since many of them do not sub or dub their own works and I don't speak Japanese, its pointless for me to watch something I have no hopes of understanding...
I would be willing to pay extra if they subbed or dubbed their works and made them available in my market, but until that happens, I'm supposed to just live without????
"I gotta feed my addiction". [cold sweats, tremors and eyes bugging out every minute I go without Yuri]
I keep an updated list, and in time, when I have the money, I will generously donate...
Again [repeating my self] I don't just say that to make myself feel good or to impress anybody. I say it because as a fellow artists, I would want my own work honored in the same manner.
With all sincerity,
Delicious Vodka DeBlair

Subject: [Yuricon] Yuricon Mailing List Policy - Please Read
Date: Friday, July 22, 2011, 6:16 PMJust as a reminder, I'd like to point out that Yuricon and the Yuricon Mailing List do not support the scanlation or fansubs of anime or manga.
For anime, Crunchyroll provides a free, legal alternative. At San Diego Comic Con today, several Japanese publishers announced the creation of Jmanga.com, which will do the same for manga and I know of one other service that is also planning on doing something similar in the upcoming months.
I realize that it is not always easy and is never cheap to do so, but you *can* support the manga artists and animators by purchasing anime and manga from Japan.
For those of you who feel that your country is unfairly excluded from licenses, (Jmanga says that it will be available worldwide, by the way) manga and anime are in no way a right. Scanlators and subtitlers are in many cases expressly violating the wishes of artists and they are distributing material without permission. At Yuricon we support the creators, not the people who violate their copyright.
I know that the situation is not perfect, and I sympathize with all of you who do not have the means to purchase manga from Japan, but I remind you that it is not a civil right - it's a form of entertainment.
So, please, no links to scanlators/fansubbers here. In general, Yuricon members are much more likely to buy, rather than illictly download their entertainment and I encourage you all to commit your time and money to support the artists who put so much energy into the manga you say you love.
