The Speakeasy: The main podcast where we discuss what we’ve been watching, reading, and playing, plus occasional other topics.

Mar 19, 2012

The debate about piracy in anime and manga might not be as old as the fandom but it certainly seems that way. The debate itself has changed with the size of the fandom. the accessibility of legitimate media, and the technology involved to name a few factors. But no matter what, the debate comes down to if and when do you think it is ethnically acceptable to view any non-licensed media. We are looking in on this debate since there have been several changes in the industry as well as the fandom. Both extremes in the piracy discussion see the other side as harmful zealots where as most people are caught in the middle. We weigh in our opinions and make some suggestions on what could be done to make most a little happier.
