to vcr and laserdisc player subtitle anime for fellow otaku fans. Usually,
fansubbing groups only charge for the tape, cost to fix the equipment if it
every break and/or to buy new equipment and/or more ld's to subtitle, and
shipping. The also ask for donations in order to buy more ld's to sub them
off of. This is of course piracy because the groups don't pay for the right
to subtitle and distribute them. But us otaku get the anime for cheaper.
But if the title they're subbing gets picked up, then they can't distribute
that particular anime anymore. The companies with the right would sue the
butts off them. ^_^ Did I leave anything out?
