News Oreimo Episode 2 Leaked 1 Day Before Japanese Debut (Update 3)
posted on 2010-10-09 21:34 EDT
A group discovered a copy of the Oreimo anime's second episode and then redistributed the episode without authorization on Saturday — a day before the episode premieres in Japan. The copy is in 720-progressive resolution. The episode was scheduled to premiere on Sunday at 11:30 p.m. Japan Time (10:30 a.m. EDT)
ANN licensed this anime series for streaming in North America. ANN is scheduled to begin streaming this episode next Saturday at 1:30 p.m. EDT.
Thank you to Daiz (Daizo) for the news tip.
Update: Oreimo episode 1 has been removed from ANN.
Update 2: "Exedore_UK," a subtitling timer, reports on his Twitter account on Tuesday that he and two others were "let go" from the Oreimo project since "we're freelance on the series and there's no work to do." Thanks, Daiz.
Update 3: "Exedore_UK" clarified later on Tuesday that he was "not let go from ANN, just on a work stoppage (for now?)" [Twitter account's name corrected. Thanks, Shiroi Hane.]
