ADV gets Gasaraki (unofficially)

Thursday, April 1, 1999 in News & Info, Anime News. Leave a comment

ADV Films' newest aquisition, the hit WOWOW TV series Gasaraki, wasn't supposed to be announced for a while yet, but ADV's legal enforcement team allegedly accidentally let the cat out of the bag when threatening a fansub distributor carrying an unsubtitled version of the show.

The fansubber, which wished to remain anonymous, told ANN that a simple request that it be removed would have served the same purpose (without getting nasty), but it is general knowledge that the "Cease & Desist" letter is standard operating procedure for most commercial companies.

Doubt of the unofficial announcement then made its way onto rec.arts.anime.misc, where the typical anger and chaos followed.

An emergency "official" announcement is expected next week.
