Today, as every Thrusday, i went to see if the new episode of Death Note has been submitted but i get a big surprise
VIZ has licensed Death Note!

http://www.animeondvd.com/news/pr.php?pr_view=915

Any thoughts?
Personally i'm kinda annoyed, it was too soon to liscensed DN! Only 12 chapters where up and they've licensed.

Do you think that the system DTO and DTR (download to own and download to rent, respectively) will be successful?

One would expect this...since it was so popular. However, I too am ticked off. They should license after the series has finished. English cast will probably suck just like always.

oops about your answer I guess it can be both way. If a lot people is downloading the show and renting it more like they become license. Or should I say well know. (I think that what you trying to ask. Not sure. If i answer your question......mmm...sorry about that...can hard for me to understand. English is not my first language)

I don't like the download system somehow I would feel cheated out of my money, I much prefer buying DVDs.

It's too bad... Commerce is everywhere :/
Cash is not able to make a series better - It can make a series longer.

Let's hope that Death Note will keep the high level...

Some folks are wise, and some otherwise.

i really hate that they licensed it.... dunno if they're dto or dtr will be succesfull. well, we'll wait and see, ne?

It's a shame. (Or maybe not, since they can probably earn some money for this awesome anime.)
I agree that it's better if it got licensed AFTER all the episodes are out... =/
But what can we do about this? Nothing, except to complain or praise. We'll manage! Also, if you want to continue watching, buy the DVDs, it's worth it.

At least the company can make more money its proven that once someone has watched a show online they tend to not buy the original. I myself loved death note manga... except for the ending x.x,

I think that it being licensed in America will definitely have its benefits

At least 4Kids didn't decide to license it. =P

Well considering DN is very popular, I wasn't surprised it got licensed so soon. Fate/Stay Night was licensed before it even aired if I remember correctly. Same with Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society

However, I'll question the concept of DTO and DTR. Considering there are fansubs, I would expect that people will dl the fansubs instead of dling a licensed copy since fansubs are relatively free...
Also, what about the people who do not have like broadband internet? lol

Good night, sweet prince.

it's a good thing that it got licenced, and to all who say otherwise cause they can't download their precious fansubs, build a bridge and get over it, seriously, if you like it so much buy it *unless of course you live somewhere where anime is scarce and aren't old enough to buy online, then get someone who is *


Quote by Benjikun7 English cast will probably suck just like always.


No need to pre-empt things, and how does english dubs suck? Unless you can give strong, valid points about why it sucks, then don't bother. I'd still buy the dvds regardless and if you dont like the english, well switch the audio track, too easy

Anyway back to the matter at hand. As far as this download service goes, that i'm not too sure about. Paying on a per episode basis might be alright if you want to download the first couple episodes without committing to having something physical, but if you intend on getting the whole series via that method then it's going to be more expensive to buy the dvds overall. But again it gives access to people who cant easily buy the dvds.

It does add more accessibility to people, but it depends on how much per episode people will have to pay.
