That sounds pretty good, since there is a ubiquity among its various versions with their user accounts and (most) access (great to see a bump up in video quality, too). That hopefully also explains the US version's sudden removal of its Funico titles and maybe point more strongly to a transition from its beta period to this new "Zero" membership. The free music download service is eye-popping, however, which makes me wonder just what kind of music they will be offering there, in terms of quality.

is just like Toei Douga

the difference of the two sites
niconico.com a funimation affiliate site looks like ustream, livesteam and justin.tv and totally different

and original nicovideo.co.jp transforms from a video site and music site that looks like facebook

I didn't add last.fm, pandora and itunes.

actually almost identically match sounds awesome

This is more global acceptance and wanting to unify the branding in that case. In Toei's case, they had used "Toei Animation Co., Ltd." for it's international licensing for decades prior to eventually renaming the studio with it by the late 90's.

I've been noticing them counting down to this since March. But as long as they keep their indexing and "Mylist" system unchanged it's all good for me. Wink
