[Edit: Ok, so I thought this was a pretty fair solution, but more people are opposed to it than I had expected. I don’t have the time to reply to every single comment (and I’m sure it’ll be redundant anyway), but thanks for all your input. As per your suggestions, I’ll keep the streams up for all my old videos, but if DM starts taking them down, I won’t have the time to reupload them to another site. After I’m done with Hyakkaten, however, I will start providing only softsubs. For those who are still opposed to that, please try to understand where I am coming from. Thank you.]
Just updating real quick to inform you all that 1 week after I post the final episode of HaKaTa Hyakkaten 3 (ep.12), I’ll be taking down all links to my DailyMotion streams- not just Hyakkaten, but Odekake, Shakariki, NogiBingo, etc. as well. Of course the softsubs will remain available, and you’re totally welcome to encode the videos yourself so you have a hardsub version for personal use. I feel like most people have the raws anyway, so I hope it’s not too much trouble!
The reason I’m doing this is because I feel a bit guilty uploading 48 videos when it specifically warns me that it’s illegal to do so, but I also want to ensure that everyone has a chance to watch Hyakkaten until the end. If you like Hyakkaten, please consider buying the actual Hyakkaten 3 DVD when it’s released (it should have a lot of bonus footage, too!). Also, please consider supporting HKT by buying their goods! Their 5th single comes out April 22nd (and it’s already available for preorder) -wink wink nudge nudge-
