Untitled[edit]

Animesuki's had mentions from ANN and AnimeonDVD (among others) as noted in the references. It's gotten attention from both a Japanese and a US anime company. Admittedly it's in a rather niche interest (anime fans on the internet) but it's very notable in that niche. If this doesn't satisfy the notability requirements, feel free to bring up your concerns or request further clarification and I'll see what I can do. Tiakalla 06:51, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Sailor Moon licensing[edit]

Also, AnimeSuki still does not list episodes from the S or SuperS seasons of Sailor Moon, even though all five seasons of the anime are unlicensed in the United States.

I need to nitpick this statement, because while factually true, S and SuperS were previously licensed and have commercial region 1 DVDs available. It's the existence of these DVDs that likely precludes those seasons (as well as the prior two, save perhaps the single episodes excluded from the DVDs) from inclusion on AnimeSuki. --Billdorr 00:34, 13 April 2007 (UTC)

Not so much the existence of those discs, per se, I expect, as the fact that most of what is being circulated for those series is rips of those commercial releases, not fansubs. From the standpoint of AnimeSuki and like-minded fansub users, the original crop of fansubs for Sailor Moon "Classic," R, S, and SuperS ought to have been destroyed a decade ago (not to mention they were all on VHS). Although both ADV and Geneon have dropped the licenses, and the discs have gotten very hard to find (legitimately, I mean: bootlegs are everywhere), I'm not aware of any major fansub group taking on those series since then (the focus has been on Stars), and all the files I've seen have been copied off of the R1 release. I for one feel very different about downloading a copy of ADV's subbed version of "Classic," for instance (which is posted all over YouTube), than about downloading a fansub of an unlicensed show. Is it splitting hairs? Maybe; I'm not sure. -GSwift 01:26, 9 September 2007 (UTC)

Stub Expansion[edit]

AnimeSuki is noteworthy for collecting and maintaining a Region 1 Licence Database. This is a usefull source of information and would be worth mentioning in the article. ReAn1985 (talk) 09:15, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

AnimeSuki also has one of the larger and more active forums. AnimeSuki Forums which discuss an extremely wide variety of topics related to the anime, manga, and fansubbing / scansilating worlds. ReAn1985 (talk) 09:15, 7 May 2008 (UTC)
