ANIME/MANGA PURGE

I got this from a friend who was reading majority of the Elsword forums.

BEWARE ANIME AND MANGA FANS. JAPAN IS PLANNING TO SHUT DOWN MAJOR ANIME/MANGA WEBSITES THAT YOU EITHER WATCH OR DOWNLOAD~!

Japanese Government Enforcing Anti-Piracy Law on Anime and Manga
Image List: [x]

"youtube" yeah this is gon go far 

no way they gonna get pirate bay
if half of the EU and the us cant shut em down what makes you think japan is gonna get close

nippon government, folded over a thousand times

Can they really do anything about foreigners reading/watching their media though? If I understand this right, their licensing only covers the EXACT original works as you see them when they air, like with any other show from around the world. You could flip the video and upload it and they theoretically wouldn’t be able to do anything about it, it’s not the exact original content (They do this with movies as I understand it for streaming sites). Following this, the theoretical worst that will happen is all your subs for anime will be hard subbed from now on (you wont be able to make gifs without the subs there), and your manga might take a little longer to get updated because the raw untranslated versions fall in their jurisdiction. A lot of people in the U.S. read/watch pirated media from japan, yeah, but I wonder if japan can really take down said media from all these places when almost all of it is altered with unofficial fan translations and added subtitles, theoretically putting it out of their jurisdiction for any copyright infringement. I’m no expert, but food for thought maybe? Something worth looking into I guess.

I’m almost certain their government will cooperate with governments overseas to make sure those sites are wiped out… but I guess we’ll see how things go in the near-future.

Washoe was a chimp who was taught sign language.

One of Washoe’s caretakers was pregnant and missed work for many weeks after she miscarried. Roger Fouts recounts the following situation:

"People who should be there for her and aren’t are often given the cold shoulder—her way of informing them that she’s miffed at them. Washoe greeted Kat [the caretaker] in just this way when she finally returned to work with the chimps. Kat made her apologies to Washoe, then decided to tell her the truth, signing "MY BABY DIED." Washoe stared at her, then looked down. She finally peered into Kat’s eyes again and carefully signed "CRY", touching her cheek and drawing her finger down the path a tear would make on a human (Chimpanzees don’t shed tears). Kat later remarked that one sign told her more about Washoe and her mental capabilities than all her longer, grammatically perfect sentences." [23]

Washoe herself lost two children; one baby died shortly after birth of a heart defect, the other baby, Sequoyah, died of a staph infection at two months of age.

more about Washoe:

after the death of her children, researchers were determined to have Washoe raise a baby and brought in a ten month chimpanzee named Loulis. one of the caretakers went to Washoe’s enclosure and signed “i have a baby for you.” Washoe became incredibly excited, yelling and swaying from side to side, signing “baby” over and over again. then she signed “my baby.”

the caretaker came back with Loulis, and Washoe’s excitement disappeared entirely. she refused to pick Loulis up, instead signing “baby” apathetically; it was clear that the baby she thought she was getting was going to be Sequoyah. eventually Washoe did approach Loulis, and by the next day the two had bonded and from then on she was utterly devoted to him.

*information shamelessly paraphrased from When Elephants Weep by Jeffrey Masson.

Even more interestingly, after Washoe and Loulis bonded, she started teaching him American Sign Language the same way that human parents teach their children language. It only took Loulis eight days to learn his first sign from Washoe, and aside from the seven that his human handlers learned around him, he learned to speak in ASL just as fluently as Washoe and was able to communicate with humans in the same way she could.

now if y’all don’t think this is the tightest shit you can get outta my face

This comic I made over a year ago, but I’ve touched it up since and I’m happy to share it on tumblr C: while I’ve improved immensely since I made this, I’m still really proud of myself for making it.

ps. this was during a stage in my art where I was a little texture heavy, heh heh

My process for all the paisley armchair pictures. I sometimes forgot to save iterations regularly, so they’re a bit uneven (especially the blue one).

Sorted in the order they were made.
