wish motoko looked a little less like an SoL-anime figurine and wish character design wasn't by an artist who got his clout through plagiarism
but overall it looks far better than anything else that has come out of this franchise in the last decade

 

 

You didn't like the Arise series?  I thought it was pretty interesting.

 

 

I thought SAC Solid State Society would have been within the last 10 years and that was pretty darn good IMO.

I know man.....

*Looked up date on GitS 3, yeah over 10 years ago now....

 

But the Arise series wasn't...    That was pretty solid even if I thought how the story with the Major played out was divisive for me in the way that played out.

 

I know the live action movie wasn't considered good by a lot of fans so I did leave that one out LOL.  Granted, I liked what they wanted to do and some of the story elements, and I don't have a problem with Scarlet Johanson being considered bad ass enough to do it--I do think it should have been an Asian female based on where the story takes place.

I dropped Arise quickly. It just seemed like a total mess. I couldn't get into it at all.

 

I kind of get and don't get where you are coming from on that....

 

It was like some weird prequel to how it all started once it played out fully ending with movie tied to it.

Lately I’ve been hearing a lot of shit talk going on about Funimation and Sentai.

 

Are they really that bad?

I have no idea

 

but in this case they licensed an ecchi show, hired voice actors and started dubbing and translating it, aired 3 entire episodes and then at that point decided to go oh shit nvm lol

I say this as someone who goes to a lot of conventions and has met countless voice actors (many of whom are the nicest people you'll ever meet):

 

I 100% agree that what Funimation did was wrong. However, if we stop supporting them, then the translators and voice actors will also lose their jobs.

 

How can we, as consumers, make our voices heard that we don't condone Funimation's actions, while still supporting the people who bring us the anime that we love?

If you don't want to support Funi or CR but still support the industry you could buy figs or other merch

 

I pay for Crunchyroll every month but I still pirate everything I watch bc their player sucks, chaotic neutral lol

I would suggest the first sentence of your post provides a partial answer to the question: conventions. Conventions are definitely a way to support the industry at large, as well as individual voice actors, artists or specific vendors.

 

This is obviously not an ideal answer. Frankly, Funimation and Crunchyroll dominate the American market. If you watch anime, it's hard to avoid them.

seeing a bunch of anime nerds up in arms about this, acting like they're being forced into illegal downloading knowing damn well they mostly do that in the first place is really something else lol. funimation cancelling a show because it's too degenerate for them is way better than heavy censorship anyway. putting fired in quotes with "rumor" in the title really doesn't help things. most likely the translator is freelance and will find other jobs. if it's in-house, there's no way they'd have separate translators hired formally for each show that are let go for one dropped project

In all fairness, "fired" is a quote. However, it's a quote from an anonymous Funimation forums poster with the username ShortyGal1105. Where did ShortyGal1105 get their information? They won't tell us. 

 

Which is to say, running the headline like that is irresponsible. A journalist should work to ensure their work is accurate, fair and thorough, and quoting an anonymous user from the Funimation forum isn't any of those things. Verification is something that should happen before reporting a story like this. 

 

Write first and ask questions later, says the internet journalist. It needs to stop.
