    yo, could you please play the piracy Blueray disc ad longer next time? Its mere half-a-second appearance in this vid deteriorates the appeal of the rest of the video.

    During the Fansub Wars of the early 2000's, yes we had our favorite fansub groups. Some because of the quality of translations, some because we didn't care for translated OP/ED, some because of 480/720p. Whatever those small differences were, at least we could all agree. . . . . Anime-Junkies subs were trash.

    This reminds me of how back in the early 2000s when I was getting into anime DBZ still hadn't been dubbed so I got the whole collection off ebay which consisted of these burned CDs with cheezy printed jewel inserts that had all the episodes to watch in quicktime or windows media... I also around that time got the Trunks/Android saga off ebay on VHS which ended up being some bootlegs; I let someone borrow them and I never saw them again... still miss those shitty VHS tapes even today

    Fun fact. If you buy stuff on ebay and its a knockoff you can claim your money back by either messaging the seller you will report them if not refunded or you can just go through ebay which will take much much longer. Either way you can keep the stuff, you're not obligated to return pirated stuff they were scamming people with.

    Fansubs were the bread and blood of my teens. They helped me to practise my english, to understand Japanese culture and helped me to even keep up with the conversations in the anime. Seriously when you have like 6 random school-girls rampaging at one conversation, how do you know who says what? -> FANSUBS!!! Just make the text in the colour of the hair of the person speaking... BRILIANT !!! (ehm...Shuffle!.. ehm...) Thanks you Fansubs...I will never forget...

    There are mangas/light novels that I stopped reading because the original fan-subbers were replaced, and I was already spoilt. Some of those were real gems. As an aside, even with how far the industry has gone for anime, fan-subs and scanlations are still critical for many mangas, light novels, and visual novels.

    Fansubbing is, thankfully, far from dead. Plenty of groups are still heavily invested in typesetting, and others (GJM, etc) are still working on their own translations. Fansubbing won't die, unless official streaming services find a way to provide better sign typsetting.

    Honestly, if you download shit on Nyaa, fansubs are still very prominent on movies and shows. Like, all of the Monogatari series fansubbed. People in the random seem to swear by fansubs being better. So that's what I've got. Fansubs are still out there. I personally am paying for nearly every major streaming site with anime on it atm. Crunchyroll, Funimation, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. So, I don't feel too bad if I download something not on any of them, or if it's just not available in good quality. Such as Bakemonogatari. The first season is in abysmal 480p on Crunchyroll. So on top of subs people don't like, it's also in shit quality. Which is ironic, because I heard it's actually the ONLY season from the show with the superior Blu-ray version on the site. How they managed to get it in standard definition I do not understand. Unless Blu-rays and dvd's in Japan both get the improved animation.

    My fist time discovering anime was weard if we disclusde dragon ball from my childhood. I was 12 or 13 and in a way I can't remember I came across the entirety of S1 of the anime where the dude gets transported into a game as his demon lord character, diablo in low quality. And to any wondering it was one of the trash isekai anime. AND I WAS HOOKED! YOU HEARD ME I WAS BROUGHT TO THE WORLD OF ANIME THROUGH TRASH ECHI ISEKAI AND SAW IT AS A DAMN MASTERPEACE! EVEN MY FIRST ANIME WAS TRASH! WHEN I WAS 6 AND BEFORE I WATCHED DRAGON BALL I GOT THE DVD SET OF SPIDER RIDER! I NOW DEGRADED TO READING NON MAINSTREAM ISEKAI MANGA AND LOVING EVERY SECOND OF IT AND STARTED COVID WITH READING LIGHT NOVELS 14 HOURS A DAY! BOW DOWN BEFORE MY TRASH TASTE! But some are pretty good and I do recommend reading some.
