    As you're likely aware by now, Kametsu has been forced to undergo changes in order to continue to exist and keep its staff members out of legal trouble. There was no other possibilities to be had. So please refrain from suggesting ways to get around the situation, and please do not attack the staff for the decisions made. What is done is done. No we will not be bringing back the content you're liking to be wondering/asking about. No we cannot access the content to back it up for you. No we cannot recommend other sites that participate in such activities. Please understand our situation. If you have any suggestions for the community going forward, we're all ears. We're looking for ways to breathe life into discussions, continue to draw new members in and keep them around actively participating in discussions, etc... To this regard we have many changes we plan to roll out within the coming month. One of which is usergroup levels in which you advance ranks based on various things such as account age, post count, and reputation points. This'll give you styled names in the online list as well as various perks such as larger Private Message box, access to other boards, less flood control on searches, ability to give out more rep points per day, custom titles, and more. We're also looking into having the occasional Steam key giveaway contests to and various gaming activities where hopefully we can get enough people together to play some online games together, stream gameplay, write reviews, give recommendations, etc. We're also looking for news writers to keep up with the latest news on television, movies, anime, toons, and games. I'm also pondering the idea of a points system with a shop for possible profile treats (just in the name of fun), and various other possibilities such as maybe the ability to pin a thread for a certain time, bump it, feature it, custom user style, or something. We had something like this years ago, so it may be fun to bring back provided such thing exists. Also, we're going to be looking for ways to cut costs of the community and ensure the community can better maintain itself. What this entails, I'm not sure at this point, but for now, if you'd like to continue to show your support for the community: donations are welcome as always and much appreciated. And if you have any further questions or suggestions be sure to voice them. Just please by courteous and realize this entire event has been extremely taxing and stressful and we've had to deal with hundreds of inquiries already across all social media platforms.

    Steam Key courteously donated by LighteningOne. Call of Duty returns to its roots with Call of Duty: WWII - a breathtaking experience that redefines World War II for a new gaming generation. Steam Link: https://store.steampowered.com/app/476600/Call_of_Duty_WWII/ Giveaway Rules & Info: To participate, you must have at least 5 posts on the forum and selected a display picture (avatar) for your forum account. If you win, you must reach out to me directly, either via forum PM, discord DM (Koby#6061), or IRC. If the prize isn't claimed within 2 weeks of the winner being declared, we'll redraw from the entries for a new winner. Kametsu nor it's staff is responsible in the event that the key doesn't work. In most giveaways we'll hopefully know for sure that everything is valid. However in the event that a key is donated to us by non-staff, we have no way of verifying it's un-used without using it. This is why we'd prefer "Steam Gifts" donated rather than keys if possible, or simply the money to buy a game outright for the giveaways instead, but we'll still do our best to make it up to the winner in the event that is key doesn't work. If you have any questions or even have some suggestions on how I should do something regarding the giveaways differently, feel free to comment below. In the future, we'll probably create a dedicated board on the forum for giveaways with a sub-forum for completed giveaways to make things more tidy and easily found, but this is just to get things started. We're also unsure how often we'll have giveaways. It depends on how much supply we end up with in terms of Steam Keys, Steam Gifts, and donated funds to purchase them. So if you'd like to donate towards the giveaways, contact me. All contributions are appreciated. How to Enter: Leave a new comment on any thread HERE that contributes to the discussion of the topic (as in don't just spam "cool game" etc". Leave a comment below linking to the post you made in step one, along with the hashtag #codww2 Include your Discord or IRC name if you're on either or. Winner will be selected by random generation on February 16th if we have enough contestants. If not, submissions will last an additional week until we hit the requirement; so be sure to spread the word. Share this giveaway on Steam, Twitter, Youtube, etc.

    It's a giveaway. We have no way of policing what is done with it once handed to the winner, nor do we want to try. We do hope they either use the key on their own account and play it or pass it along to a friend that will. But if they don't, there isn't anything we can do about that. Giveaways happen all over the internet for all sorts of things. Once someone wins something, it is theirs to do with as they please. Even if you already own the game or have no interest in the game, you can still enter to win it for a friend. I'm not going to limit who can and can't enter. I'm pretty sure we're barely going to get enough entries to hold these giveaways until more word is spread about them. So please, be sure to spread the word and get more people to enter.

    Leading global streaming platform Netflix has announced five new anime shows, including both feature film and series adaptations of well-known live-action and manga properties. New projects unveiled at Netflix’s Singapore slate event include Pacific Rim, an original anime series that returns to the epic battle of Kaiju and Jeagers, expanding upon the story of the first two live-action movies. The show follows two siblings - an idealistic teenage boy and his naïve younger sister - who are forced to pilot an abandoned Jaeger across a hostile landscape in a desperate attempt to find their missing parents. Craig Kyle (Thor: Ragnarok) and Greg Johnson (X-Men: Evolution) will serve as co-show runners, with production slated for Legendary Entertainment (Kong: Skull Island, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu). Altered Carbon is an anime feature, set in the same universe of the Netflix live-action sci-fi series, currently in production on Season 2 at Skydance Television. The film will explore new elements of the story mythology. Animation studio Anima is producing, with Dai Sato (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) and Tsukasa Kondo set as writers. Cagaster of an Insect Cage is a manga-based series that follows the struggle of a young couple trying to stay alive. The show is set in a post-apocalyptic world where a mysterious disease, “Cagaster,” turns people into giant murderous insects. Koichi Chigira (Last Exile, Full Metal Panic!) is directing the Gonzo (Hellsing, Afro Samurai) animation studio production. Boondocks co-director LeSean Thomas is the creator, director and executive producer behind Yasuke, set in a war-torn feudal Japan of mechs and magic, where a retired ronin must take up his sword when charged with the task of transporting a mysterious child who dark forces want to eliminate. Inspired by the true story of a samurai of African origin who fought with Japanese warlord Oda Nobunaga, the show will star Lakeith Stanfield (Atlanta, Sorry to Bother You) as the voice of Yasuke. Grammy-nominated Flying Lotus will compose the music and serve as an executive producer on the show, which is being produced by the animation studio MAPPA (Yuri On Ice, Kakegurui). Trese is an anime series based on the Philippine graphic novel by the same name, created by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldissimo. Set in Manila, where the mythical creatures of Philippine folklore live in hiding amongst humans, Alexandra Trese finds herself going head to head with a criminal underworld comprised of malevolent supernatural beings. Jay Oliva (Wonder Woman, The Legend of Korra) will serve as executive producer, with production being handled by Shanty Harmayn and Tanya Yuson at BASE Entertainment, a Jakarta and Singapore-based studio. This announcement comes on the heels of Netflix’s reveal earlier this week of six all-new animated features and series, including projects from noted animation directors Jorge Gutierrez (The Book of Life, El Tigre), Craig McCracken (The Powerpuff Girls, Fosters Home for Imaginary Friends) and Nora Twomey (The Secret of Kells, The Breadwinner), further evidence of the streaming giant’s aggressive efforts to greatly expand its content offerings to a growing global base of animation fans.

    Might as well just tell LighteningOne to sell it himself then. Naturally it'd be nice if the person who won the key actually has a use for it and plays the game. How would you feel if you gave someone a gift and they ended up selling it behind your back? I can assure you most people wouldn't like the sound of that. Of course there's no way to ensure the winner will play the game, but still, it'd be nice if they did. I already own this game so I have no need to enter the giveaway.

    I don't care if they plan to sell the key. This is to benefit the forum and get people to have conversations.

    ABC has opted not to proceed with a pilot order to its Marvel drama from Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg. The project, about female characters with superpowers, had a big pilot production commitment. It is unclear whether the untitled hourlong drama from Heinberg, Marvel Television and ABC Studios, will be redeveloped. In typical Marvel fashion, details about the drama were kept close to the vest, but it is believed to be based on lesser-known Marvel characters. There have been a number of fairly obscure female superhero team-ups that have appeared sporadically in Marvel comics over the years, including A-Force, Lady Liberators and Fearless Defenders. Heinberg, who is under an overall deal at ABC Studios, is executive producing the potential series with Marvel TV’s Jeph Loeb. Launching a new Marvel series had been a priority for ABC. There is a little less pressure as current series Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. was recently renewed for Season 7. Still, ABC wants to stay in the Marvel business. “I hope there is more than we are doing together,” she told Deadline. Being a female-centric, the new series would’ve fit well into ABC’s lineup that has strong appeal to women with such drama series as Shondaland’s Grey’s Anatomy, How To Get Away With Murder and the recently-departed Scandal, as well as hot newcomer The Good Doctor. Burke said at TCA today that ABC reclaiming the crown as top rated network among women is a main goal for her. ABC previously developed Jessica Jones before the female superhero project migrated to Netflix as part of the big Marvel TV package.

    You make a good point; and there is the likelihood we restructure some of those boards you're talking about into a single "Piracy Talk" board in order to discuss the on-goings of the piracy world, while not offering anything of the sort. It depends on a few things falling into place and we still have plenty of other things to take care of regarding getting some other things operational and other changes we've yet to implement.

    I think it's beyond silly to act like every website on the internet can only live if it's a pirate site. There are way more legitimate sites than pirate sites and they do just fine. Even Kametsu spent 1/3 of it's life without downloads and was actually way more active during that time than it ever was during the "prime of content distro". Back in the days prior to downloads, the forum averaged 2,000+ posts a day. During the time of downloads, it averaged maybe 3,000 a month. So while visitor numbers and content soared, the actual participation in the community dwindled. I'm sure it didn't help that a lot of interaction moved away from the forum into IRC and Discord either, but many of our old staff members left as the Distro section gained momentum, because they didn't want to be apart of such a site or because interest in the sections they were interested in were being bombarded by spam and the members they liked to interact with moved on. We saw the death of our once extremely active roleplay and graphics sections once Distro hit it big. My good friend Koga, a co-admin who came from the Kametsu x YGO Underground merger also decided to step down. As IkarosBD said earlier, the content distro killed legitimate discussion as those wanting to do so were bombarded by 1-post leechers spamming random threads, people lost the desire to even bother, and most of them vanished. Again, people who never bothered to post or interact with absolutely anything or anyone past their initial "Hi" post added nothing to the community, so their loss takes nothing away. To say a forum lives or dies on 1-time posters who never participated in anything is a very silly viewpoint. I'm not naive. I know a vast portion of the users will move on. I know some of them were big contributors to the site and community. I know them leaving is a big loss. Though at the same time, it is what it is, and there is nothing that can be done about it. Harping on it does nothing but kill the spirit of those who want to try their damnedest to make the community thrive by other means. I do however feel that there are plenty of users that will stick around or visit in some capacity from time to time, and those friends are worth maintaining a home away from home for them to visit. And I whole-heartedly believe we can build the community up again with time, patience, and a lot of hard work. I'm very experienced in these kinds of things. I ran very successful communities for nearly a decade prior and during Kametsu and even ran Kametsu for nearly 5 years prior to ever having "downloads". Only reason those other communities don't exist today is because I felt the desire to merge them into Kametsu to have one userbase rather than multiple split communities; so it lessened my work load and brought everyone to one place (it's possible I might revive some of those old sites, even though I no longer own the domain names they once resided on, I still have the site files for them). There is zero reason why the community must "die" just because one thing is taken away. The "Content Distro" was not what made Kametsu, it was only but a part of the site, and the site will continue on down other avenues; breathing new life into the community. Drawing users in with other things, old members who left cause they didn't want to be on a pirate site may return or they may not, who knows; but I'll say this much, the forum has been more active discussion-wise this last week than it had been in quite some time. IRC and Discord are still thriving as much as they ever did too. As long as the core groups of friends stick around, Kametsu will live. We'll be cutting costs since we won't likely need as beefy a server, and we may be looking into other means to fund the site or get it within manageable means. I'm sure advertising will help, especially with the Steam key Giveaways, and if the stuff with FUNimation comes to fruition we may even be able to have giveaways with various anime swag and merchandise. And we have many other features we plan to roll out in regards to "epeen" features for active users, hiring staff to maintain various aspects, and with a new networking offer we may be able to bring in legitimate youtube game/anime reviewers and bloggers, etc. Thanks to some new friends I've recently made.

    10 posts in 4 years? Alrighty, one leech is gone. If I fought back, the entire community would have vanished when I went to jail (and it was pretty much guaranteed to happen, court was already in process btw) and a few downloads to me isn't worth jail time, but it's cool that people don't care about my life. I don't expect everyone to be appreciative or supportive. The more I look at this, the more I'm actually happy to have been forced to remove the downloads. When the dust settles, only those worth maintaining the community for will still be here and the forum will be much more sustainable in terms of requirements needed to run it as we can swap to cheaper servers. So thank you for making me feel better about the situation. I appreciate it.

    For nearly 15 years it's been my home page and since the invention of tabs and the pinning of tabs it's been a staple in my pinned tabs. I too kept refreshing when it was down simply out of habit. Missed being able to browse the forum; even though we had Discord and IRC with hundreds or thousands of users in to talk to. It just wasn't the same and I'm glad many people are slowly returning to the community with open arms. Of course it was to be expected that some people would try to incite issues and what not, but I'm actually surprised at how few actually have. Kametsu truly was one of the few online communities that wasn't filled with toxicity. Many communities I've tried to join in with were just so toxic that they seemed to simply thrive on tearing things apart rather than building it up. I'm very thankful that Kametsu was so full of nice people who are just wholesome to be around. People come and they go. There are many friends I've made through the years here that no longer visit the community at all, but many of which despite that I still keep in touch with through social media and other chat programs. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

    No, we really could not. Our server provider didn't care about the reports, they just forwarded them to me and ignored them. The entire situation has absolutely nothing to do with where the server is located and 100% to do with where I am located. If it was unknown who the owner was and where they're at, sure. But since you don't know what transpired it's easy to throw scenarios out there. So again as the OP said, please refrain from suggesting ways to get around the situation. What is done is done. If you wanna make suggestions, make suggestions about what we can do moving forward on the course we've charted.

    Well the traffic was so high, that even if 90% of the daily traffic was for downloads, that'd still leave roughly 300,000+ pageviews a day that wasn't. And there is a HUGE part of the member base that while being here for that, found something much more, and stuck around to actually be a part of the community itself. These are the kinds of people worth striving our hardest to keep around and it's because of them that we've fought so hard to keep Kametsu running smoothly for 14 years and 10 months. My friends and my family, I love these guys and gals who make it all worth it. When you think that the majority of the people who aren't going to visit anymore were one-time posters, it's really not much of a loss. If anything the drop in visitors from people that contributed nothing to the community allows us to drop down to a lower-tier server, thereby cutting costs and making the community more sustainable. Just FYI, since the birth of Kametsu, it's cost nearly $14,000 to maintain it between all the server fees, domain fees, licensing fees, subscription fees, theme renewals, plugin renewals, licensing renewals, etc. On average it's about $800 a year.

    I'm not sure what you mean... Totally understandable. I don't expect everyone to be okay with this change, but I do hope that enough people cared about the community aspect enough to stick around with the friends they've gained from the community. Kametsu turns 15 this year, and I'd love to see it reach 20 years old five years from now and we're doing what we can to keep the community going.

    Recently, I've been getting x265 for anime and tv shows more often. Guess I wasn't as obsessed with every strand of detail as I was before. Gone were the days I hoarded full-on Coalgirls encodes (whether the filesize actually gave merit to the quality). x265 is decent enough, great for casual viewing and pretty portable. I agree x265 works well with mini-encodes - and it's quite enjoyable for that purpose.

    It's that time of year again... It's been 7 years now since your last birthday and the pain of your absence is as strong as ever. I miss you and I wish you'd have had the chance to meet your beautiful niece, who was born two years after your passing. I wish you'd have had the chance to grow old like you should have. There's so much I wish for when it comes to you. You were my best friend and cancer cut your life short. It's hard to believe it's been 7 years. I never thought that 01/31/11 would be the last birthday we celebrated together. Love you baby sis. I hope you're resting in peace. Happy Birthday....

    @Koby I guess, it's also worth mentioning, that person should enter the giveaway, if he/she really wants to play the game, and not just add another icon to the library. I won't enter, since CoD is not really my thing. Good luck for everyone.
