Awesome. This is a chance for everyone to check out how cool Buso Renkin is for themselves. I may have to look into the Death Note streams myself whenever I can get my internet to be faster. Laughing

Once again Canada is region-blocked. Has Viz completely forgotten that they own the rights to these titles for all of North America or something? I'm starting to get the impression that they don't even realize that we fall into the same region anymore.

Another official video portal is a good thing. Just wish they'd make a distinction on whether a series was subbed or dubbed. Or at the least if they even offer a choice.

Buso Renkin looks fun, I think the page is still getting ready on Hulu because I don't see it on the new shows list but if I search the name the page comes up.

No Canadian streams isn't helping Viz's image here.

And where is Ranma? Mad

i think it's cause a lot of illegal streamers IP originate from out of the US like in Canada,Germany and especially in Japan. Which is why some sites like veoh and blocked some countries (like Japan & europe) servers so they wont get sued for holding copyright infringment animes.

Either way I'm glad that their streaming anime on there but what about Kimini no Gash Bell (Zatch Bell ) & MAR??? If their putting streams of Hikaru no Go they should have at least put those two cause i like watching them on Toonami.

I wonder how the Bleach streaming will work. Will it be a 1 week delay like Naruto or are they going to be where the US broadcast is, which is close to 100 episodes behind the jpn version?

Hopefully it's the 1 week thing. If so, great. A year ago 100% of the anime I watched was fansubs. A year later and close to 100% of what I watch is totally legit whether free streaming or CR subscription.

Yeah, that's totally cool Sickvisionz. I hadn't even thought about that. I wonder if it's finally curbing the fan sub market? I still believe that fan subbing is a necessary element - because a lot of shows don't have marketability, but it is realy cool the difference between this year and last year.

Nope, their newest episode is from the Bount Saga, they're months behind Adult Swim...They're even behind the reruns...LOL

Yes. Yes! YES! Maybe now we'll finally be able to see the end of Hikaru no Go dubbed in English!

I was still watching the DVDs while it was airing on Jetstream, and by the time I caught up the site was already gone. I'm crossing my fingers on this one...

Edit: Nevermind, it looks like they only have the sub... ¬.¬

Fansubbing is an necessary element untill the japanese get their thumbs out and provide the content to us Tea Sipping Philistines.

I don't want that to be the case, but unfortunately, the "Don't watch [show] idea doesn't do wonders for me ether!"

Bleach hasn't been updated in months (probably last in October), was randomly done when it was updated, and was never near the broadcast ep wise.

*sigh* I see the list and get on edge thinking I'll finally be able to watch Bleach through a legal source just like I'm watching Naruto. Then I find out that Viz's portal won't even work for me (Canada). And find out here not only that, but it's out of date completely.

At this point FUNimation's buggy ad based video portal with no membership option to get rid of the ads is better than Viz's.
