    don't be crazy, i don't see how such an action is going to be of much help. you need the media to start questioning into xedo and let the news spread like wild fire

    I started this thread initially becoz I felt that something is seriously amiss in the case and so far I still do not believe that Odex is "clean" based on the other information posted here.

    Btw, I wouldn't be surprised that the people in Odex are reading online posts / opinions on the case and are reacting to it. By criticising them online, we may have helped them cover their initial loopholes.

    Anyway Odex if you are reading this, remember you can't fool all the people all the time.
    There are just too many forums to monitor. Unlikely they will go to a photography website or Singaporebrides.com to check, maybe ISD will read this.
    I guess attention will be more focused on Sammi, VR, anime, edmw, sgforum and various anti-odex blogs bah..

    There is no turning back for them now. Odex will fight all the way, I believe as it progresses, they engage more help from foreign parties to pressure our local papers TO side their story...

    Odex

    i think one way for this to end is for a dedicated fan to go camp outside a certain house at oxley rise and ask "him" for his help. People listen to him and i believe him to be a wise and fair man. after all he was the guest speaker at a cosplay contest so for sure i think he knows how this is hurting his fellow countrymen.

    Note: This is not meant to be a snipe so don't take it that way!

    Unfortunately, they chose to start the entire 'game' of sueing people, pretty much like RIAA strongarm over the RIAS slap-on-wrist that "STOP! WE ARE WATCHING U!"

    PR disaster? That's definitely for sure. There are many ways out of this PR disaster if they want to continue 'enforcement' yet sue for peace amongst angry flames. It only depends on whether they are willing to make the first move by turning off the fire themselves rather den let the fire rage on.

    IMO, the longer the fiasco drags on, the fire's gonna get bigger and bigger till a complete boycott and ultimate & complete death of anime industry here is imminent.

    Well, covering initial loopholes? The stuff that they had been doing all along, their apparent non-effort are clear for all to see.

    Its like, after the teachers says (in an exam), "Put ur pens down!", the chap starts to compare answers before the papers were to be handed up and quickly amends his answers before handing up.

    The answers may be amended but the pencil marks remain.

    they've more or less killed the anime scene here. I pretty much view the japanese involvement as a betrayal of their fan base even though i can understand its a business decision. Either way the appeal goes a pandora's box has been opened and no way the genie can be put back into the bottle liao. If people want Odex to go bust then you should boycott their products and not watch the anime on public tv = ratings go down then tv drop their services.

    Well, I guess the word "Sayonara" isn't used typically amongst Japanese but I guess we can really say the word "Sayonara" now... to anime.

    funny thing is, i didnt even realised i bought so many of their anime in the 1st place. i watched some from youtube and then went to buy the whole series because i liked them so much.

    think odex isn't just killing the anime culture. i actually got some imported cds of some seiyuu artists whom i like so much after watching the anime.

    either way goes, i just gonna focus on playing my pc and psp games. probably gonna give away the anime i already bought. sh*tty feeling

    Not yet ISD. It will be MITA first. They might check out forums esp when someone complains to them of undesirable comments.
    Terrorism messages spreading through forums is a cause of concern these days.
