I am Bagger O' Dickson, lead translator and project lead for BSS Fansubs' English language adaptation of Kure-nai. It has come to the attention of BSS Fansubs that a user has uploaded our release of this show onto Crunchyroll.com
. As representative of BSS Fansubs, we respectfully request that Crunchyroll remove our release of Kure-nai episode 1 from its hosting servers. We also respectfully request that Crunchyroll restrict any further uploads of BSS Fansubs' version of episode 1, and all subsequent episodes we release in the series, from upload. If it is not possible to restrict content uploads, we would greatly appreciate it if Crunchyroll made an effort to remove the content once uploaded, as well as issuing a comment on its news page informing its users that BSS Fansubs respectfully requests that its English-language adaptation of Kure-nai not continue to be uploaded to Crunchyroll.com
. While we recognize that Crunchyroll.com
is in no way responsible for the actions of its users, it has the ability to moderate anything that its users upload. While BSS Fansubs has no legal claim to Kure-nai as a licensed property, and have no control over what other groups release translated adaptations, BSS Fansubs believes that Crunchyroll can appreciate that we do not want our work to be used for profit purposes by third parties. We did not fansub this show so that it could be hosted on any third party site to increase its membership, traffic, or advertising revenue for its sponsors or investors. Crunchyroll.com
has stated in public interviews that it intends to comply with removal requests from both legitimate copyright holders as well as concerned fansub groups. It is because of this statement that we feel confident that our request will be honored in a timely and we thank you for that courtesy.
