  • I was going to say… Finally. Streaming anime that is not hosted on dodgy ad-filled sites.
    But too many are dubbed 🙁

    Seriously? If you are going to start an Anime service you don’t put up dubbed versions.

    What a joke.

    • Animation is the only time I can abide dubbing – it allows you to fully appreciate the art on display instead of being constantly distracted by subtitles. (Yeah, I’m aware this is totally sacrilegious.)

  • @chrisjager The sale surely can’t be aimed at bloggers, it’s only usable by businesses. AUDA policy requires that you be a registered business (or other related categories) to register a domain.
