The latest black eye in the vicious cycle that the anime industry has brought onto itself...

Newtype USA's replacement abruptly folded after just 4 issues(the July issue has barely been out),and rumors are circulating that the anime distribution giant that published both of the monthlies may be on the brink;while Tokyopop has scaled back the average amount of releases in a month.Sure enough,someone is already scapegoting fans who rely on fansubs and other bootlegs(i.e.region-free DVD imports).The author of that forum post was obviously too ignorant to read this editorial.Besides,my preferred method of getting a sneak peak at manga before it gets published here has been getting a hold of authentic imported raw manga phonebooks.Not to mention that virtually all of the anime/seiyuu/J-pop CD's in my posession are authentic Japanese releases with very few exceptions.As for PiQ,their blog tells subscribers that "more details will be coming soon..."

Happy 32nd birthday to Hiroyuki Takahiro Mizushima who I believe is the youngest seiyuu that I know of that's older than me unless there's some minor seiyuu that were born between now and July 24 in 1976...
