Funimation Uploads Entire Black Blood Brothers Anime 

…made all 12 episodes of the Black Blood Brothers supernatural adventure series available on its website as “download-to-own” videos…the second complete anime series to be released online, download-to-own, by a major North American anime studio prior to its North American DVD release. Viz Media released Death Note as download-to-own videos via…

Ray’s take: A rather tiring subject for me already since we discussed it countless times, but the key point is anyone who consider themselves being avid fans of an anime series really ought to try very hard to own the title. These companies (the Japanese creators, that is) have worked really hard to bring the stuff to the market. That being said, anyone else wanna tackle the minefield and murky depth of digital rights management? I don’t.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
