For 35 weeks I have been following, without fail, one of the best anime series to ever come out in recent times: Death Note (I’ll blog more about the series in an upcoming entry). The show is slated for 37 episodes, with the 35th episode being released this morning by the speed-fansub group Kurohana. Unfortunately this latest release was followed up almost immediately by a Cease and Desist order from Viz Media, the new American licence holders for the Death Note property. Apparently Animanda, the other group subbing Death Note, received this order as well.

So it would seem that with two episodes remaining, the fansub groups are going to drop the project, meaning I’ll never get to finish the most enjoyable series I have watched in years! *sniff* – :_(
