Shochiku @ YouTube

Shochiku have just opened their own YouTube channel, supposedly to help combat unauthorised uploads. A warning shot aimed at trailer bandits perhaps?

  1. Good for them. They should've done this a long time ago. It's a great way to market these films not only in Japan, but abroad as well.

  2. Agreed. Kadokawa have already made one for their anime product, so hopefully more companies will follow suit.

  3. I'd feel a lot better linking to these knowing the entire channel won't suddenly get deleted because the account owner decided to upload a Seinfeld clip on the side. Not to mention they look a whole lot nicer than the crap re-encodes of files that were only 300kbps in the first place.

    As a long-time bandit in good standing I think I'll actually replace my Shochiku trailers with embeds of these as they come out. Congrats Shochiku, you've half-converted at least one thieving bastard.

  4. Check that. Embedding disabled. The hell?

  5. Say what? Kadokawa are hip with the freaky-deaky embedding scene, so why do Shochiku have to be so square, man?

    Oh well, be grateful for small mercies.
