Well, if the megaupload apocalypse somehow affected your anime needs, then this time you will be, at least temporarily, annoyed to the point of going on a fking rampage breaking everything around you...
Japan considers anime a prime export product and they clearly dont like piracy so they are launching a mega massive operation on august 1.
Here is the info taken from crunchyroll:
In cooperation with 15 major anime production companies and manga publishers, the Japanese government will next month start a huge extermination operation against 580 foreign sites which have illegally uploaded anime and manga contents on the web without the copyright holders' permission, NHK reported on July 28. While the government has started supporting the genre as one of their important cultural exports, there appears to be no end of illegal uploading of anime and manga via pirate sites, mainly operated by Chinese. The Cultural Affairs Agency estimates the loss caused by the Chinese pirate sites last year was amounted to at least 560 billion yen (about US$ 5.5 billion).
On August 1, the government will start simultaneously sending requests to delete illegal anime and manga contents to the operators of the 580 foreign pirate sites which they have found. In addition, the operation will launch a new site to guide the fans to a legitimate site offering some 250 titles including the latest ones at a cost of several hundred yen.
And here is the pdf which contains the list of targeted websites (start at page 11):
So, nyaa (source for torrents) and animetake (source for direct downloads) are included in the list.
That leaves me with legal streaming websites... but they have limited anime shows available and some of them are even IP-blocked simply because I live in south america... F### YOU JAPAN!
Quoting heroic spirit Emiya "...anime is my body and manga is my blood...".... so basically these guys are trying to kill me by messing with my anime
Last time file hosting sites were affected by the mega-apocalypse which affected anime uploads but this time even the middlemen (nyaa,at,etc) are being affected as well, this fkin sucks...
If they succeed, I bet it will take weeks before everything is back to normal. I'm gonna fill up my external hd just in case.
