What possible purpose is there for ANN to link to videos that can't be watched in the USA when there are a number of other You Tube promo videos that CAN be watched. It would seem that linking to viewable videos would make more sense.

Man, I kind of like the GoHands aesthetic, but I feel like they are pigeonholing themselves a little too much here. This is literally just K Project again, visually and music-wise. Like, it's basically indistinguishable without the younger characters.

I imagine it has to do with that one being the official video.

We prefer to have our readers watch the official video whenever possible. In this case the only official video available is region locked in four countries, including the U.S. We have a lot of readers from countries other than the United States, and we hope those people choose to watch the official video rather than a reupload.

We do, however, still embed a reuploaded video so our U.S. readers can still watch it. That said, if a video is region-locked to Japan only, we don't usually embed those videos as it would be available to a very limited number of our readers.

Another typical GoHands production that's all about style but no real substance.

I admit that this is going to be a silly question but is there going to be an American team? I admit. It's a silly question but I just had to ask anyway.
