Lezhin apologizes for unprofessional tweets in war against piracy and illegal uploads; legal viewers caught in the cross-fires

After posting a series of tweets regarding illegal uploaders, Lezhin has posted an official apology for their unprofessional tweets. There was also a tweet from them announcing that some of their popular comics will go on hiatus indefinitely but I couldn't find it in their page anymore. Most likely the backlash have caused them to backtrack on their statements and offered an apology instead. While I…

Three reasons why Given is different from the rest, how every yaoi anime should treat its couples

I have had my fair share of yaoi anime and shounen-ai in my life and most of them either started with an obsession, harassment or worse rape. In a lot of cases, the relationships become so toxic that it's become so normal to cheer everytime a seme does something "normal" like you know, being a good boyfriend for once. Today, we'll talk about three things why…

What is Yaoi? What is boy’s love? How about shounen-ai

Yaoi is hardcore and shounen-ai is more implied, subtle. That's the simplest way we can distinguish the two. I was elementary when I began to delve into the world of boy's love and immediately, so many terms pop up that it gets hard to remember them all.

How fansubs helped popularize anime and why piracy is here to stay- what Korea can learn from Japan and the Game industry

There are a lot of discussion lately about how Korea is joining the fight against webtoon piracy. And how this silent war is being waged against fan sites for a while. Soranews24 put it succinctly when it said: Nevertheless, stopping piracy completely is an exercise in futility, which is probably why the M.A.G. (Manga-Anime Guardians) Project is aimed more at changing hearts and minds than using…

A return to Given Anime; the parallelism of hot and cold- a quick reflection

Given anime has a lot of parallelism pertaining to temperatures and seasons. My favorite is how Mafuyu often reflects that his relationship with Yuki was like night and winter, while his relationship with Uecchi is like the summer and day. It's not explicitly said but that's the vibes that I get from his monolog in episode 9. He had trouble expressing his feelings then, even after…
