FUNimation is alleging that a California resident named Hae Yong Ro and four affiliated businesses — N Trading, Inc, Discount Anime DVD, BuyDVD.com, and DOES — infringed on FUNimation and its licensers’ copyrights and trademarks by selling unauthorized copies of Fruits Basket, Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Dragonball GT, and Fullmetal Alchemist. Some of the DVDs are said to have included English dubbing. Read Full article here
Anyways, I found this article to be interesting because it was posted on my birthday and one of the sites was were one of my birthday presents was going to come from. With this said I had to look around and research a bit more to find legitimate anime product retails sites. LOL good thing I didn’t purchase anything from the DiscountAnimeDVD.com site like I was originally planning. I guess to say the it can be quite hard to trust some web site retail stores these days. Especially if you like collecting anime dvd and such.
BTW, I Originally submitted this post to the Otaku tidbit on generationotaku.net.
But anyways I thought this would be something to share with you all.
Thanks for reading.

Well now it’s a new month. So I hope that you all had a Happy Halloween and stuff. It seems I still slacking off on some anime reviews, hopeful I get one or two done this month. I’ve just been kind of busy. Anyways, well I had a pretty good birthday, had some Korean food for my b-day dinner, mmmmm good. Now I’m waiting to see if I will get my Elfen Lied box set that I had asked for. This will be my first box set. Nothing too much else going on. I started watching Someday Dreamers, which isn’t too bad so far. I also am giving Soul Eater a look as well. I’m still watching Bleach, frist season of Code Geass and Moribito, slowly but surely. I finish the second season of Zero no Tsukaima and started the third season. There are a few other animes I have watched from DVD rented from Blockbuster Total access. But I don’t like the selection of anime blockbuster has. Anyways, that’s about it for the moment. Thanks for reading. 😀
