Due to some irresponsible individuals, we’re one step closer to getting anime releases permanently pulled from Malaysians cinemas. Seriously, guys, this is why we can’t have nice things!
The announcement was released by GSC on their Facebook page some hours ago, stating that Malaysia is once again in trouble due to a few individuals who decided to record the screening of Kuroko’s Basketball and leak it online.
In a recent update from ODEX, it’s been revealed that the leaks were up to 8 minutes long. That’s a hell of a long time to record without being caught.
This is not too different with what happened with the Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale movie some time back, which prompted a potential severing of trust between ODEX, GSC and the Japanese distributors who make these screenings possible. It’s pretty unbelievable given the tremendous uproar that happened with SAO, that there’s still people who would do this.
Think of the rest of us lah wei! We want to keep being able to watch anime movies too.
As such, GSC Malaysia and ODEX is requesting for the people’s help to nip this in the bud if we want to continue enjoying anime releases, especially since we’ve taken such a massive hit in credibility.
If you happen to see anyone behaving suspiciously in the cinema to alert the cinema manager and to report any leaks found online.
