EXCLUSIVE STREAMING PREMIERES (February 1)

On-Gaku: Our Sound

When you’re a bored teenager looking for thrills, sometimes the only thing you can turn to is rock ’n’ roll. With no skills, money, or even a full set of drums, a feared trio of high-school delinquents nevertheless decide they are destined for musical glory in a quest to impress their only friend, avoid a rival gang, and—most importantly—jam out. Animated almost entirely by director Kenji Iwaisawa, and featuring a lead performance by Japanese alt-rock legend Shintaro Sakamoto, On-Gaku: Our Sound brings its own sound and vision to the beloved underground manga by Hiroyuki Ohashi from which it was adapted. With pitch-perfect deadpan humor, the film offers a highly original take on the beloved slacker comedy: a lo-fi buddy film with a blaring musical finale that will leave you wanting an immediate encore.

KINMOZA SPECIAL AND MOVIE ARRIVE ON FEBRUARY 13 THANKS TO HIDIVE!

Are you a KINMOZA fan? Then you’ll be happy to know that you’re getting a double dose of your beloved series on Monday, February 13, 2023 at 12:00 ET PM (17:00 UTC)!

KINMOZA! Pretty Days

Shinobu has to write a script and make costumes for a school play, and it’s a lot of work for one person. Fortunately for Shinobu’s theatrical future, Alice, Yoko, and Aya are glad to pitch in, and that allows for a chance to reflect on their experiences in the days before Alice arrived. Will everything be finished in time, or will the audience be in stitches because of the ones coming apart onstage? There’s no way to be sure until the last curtain call in KINMOZA! PRETTY DAYS!

KINMOZA Thank You!!

Alice, Shinobu, Aya, and Yoko have truly become the best of friends, but since it’s their last year, they must split their time between preparing for the big senior trip to Nara and Kyoto and trying to make plans for whatever is to come next in their lives… and in Shinobu’s case, that may mean something so amazing that she’d never even dared to dream it! Hop on the tour bus for one last wonderful adventure in KINMOZA! THE MOVIE – THANK YOU!!

Most Pirated Film, TV Titles See Uneven Impact From Streaming (Exclusive)

It’s easy to assume that what’s driving illegal consumption of film and TV is as simple as viewers wanting to watch popular titles without paying for them. Indeed, that was essentially the case for film in 2022, with the year’s highest-grossing titles largely overlapping with the most pirated films, according to exclusive data piracy-focused research firm Muso shared with Variety Intelligence Platform.

Films’ ease of accessibility on streaming also played a notable, albeit smaller, role. The most pirated film of 2022, Marvel’s “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” has only been available to stream in the U.S. thus far via Starz, whose domestic subscriber base is a fraction of the size of platforms like Disney+ and Netflix. Piracy of the film therefore remained elevated throughout the year.

But Muso data shows a surprising divide between the most legally streamed TV shows and the most pirated series of 2022 in the U.S. HBO’s “Game of Thrones” prequel “House of the Dragon” claimed the top spot on the latter list, inheriting a title its predecessor held throughout its run, while missing out on the most-streamed shows as measured by Nielsen.

Top 10 Most Pirated TV Seasons in 2022
Share of piracy demand among titles

House of the Dragon S1 (17%)
Chainsaw Man S1 (13%)
Running Man S1 (12%)
Rick and Morty S6 (12%)
Bleach S1 (9%)
Moon Knight S1 (9%)
The Eminence in Shadow S1 (8%)
SPY x FAMILY S1 (7%)
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power S1 (7%)
The Rising of the Shield Hero S2 (6%)

Meanwhile, only one title among Nielsen’s top 15 original programs, Amazon’s mammoth “Lord of the Rings” adaptation “The Rings of Power,” ranked as one of the year’s most pirated shows as well. Conspicuously absent from this list was the biggest TV hit of 2022, Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” or indeed any of the Netflix series, such as “Ozark” and “Wednesday,” that dominated Nielsen’s streaming ratings charts all year.

This may be because the primary method of choice for Netflix piracy is password sharing, rather than illegal streams or downloads. Muso’s data measured activity across a range of piracy sites, including illegal streaming, torrent, web download and stream-ripping platforms, meaning content viewed through credential sharing would not register. One wonders what effect Netflix’s imminent password-sharing crackdown will have on 2023’s most-pirated list.

Most of the titles measured by Muso are shows unavailable through saturated platforms like Netflix (though the Marvel series “Moon Knight,” which streams on Disney+, made the list as well). “Running Man,” which claimed a 12 percent share of piracy demand (i.e. illicit streams, downloads and the like) among the top 10 titles, is a South Korean variety show that is only available in the U.S. on niche streamers Kocowa and Viki.

Of the other six most pirated shows, one was the latest season of Adult Swim’s “Rick and Morty,” which has yet to arrive on SVOD platforms, while the remaining five were Japanese anime titles, including the no. 2 show “Chainsaw Man,” which was the most-pirated series in the U.S. for Q4.

Most Watched Original Streaming Series in U.S., 2022

::: see link :::

This may be a case of old habits dying hard. Anime series were, for many years, difficult to watch legally in the U.S., though this has changed recently as the genre has gained more mainstream appeal stateside; three of the top pirated titles, “Bleach,” “SPY x FAMILY” and “The Rising of the Shield Hero,” are all available on Hulu.

Piracy for the latter two series may also be due to the delay between the shows’ broadcasts in Japan and their Hulu debuts, with anime fans wanting to catch the latest episodes as soon as possible. Piracy spikes for both “SPY x FAMILY” and “Shield Hero” coincide with their Japanese broadcast dates, per Muso data.

Legal means are available for American viewers to watch these shows more quickly; the niche streaming service Crunchyroll features subtitled anime episodes within hours of their debuts in Japan. But it’s clear that there is an opportunity for distributors to blunt piracy by making the shows accessible to a wider audience as soon as possible.

While streaming has not eliminated TV piracy — indeed, the proliferation of subscription platforms and exclusive content has fueled a steady rise since 2020 — the example of Netflix shows that scale for a platform’s user base can at least somewhat deter it. The major streaming players have counted on in-demand content to build such scale, but it’s worth considering if this dynamic can work in reverse.

Re: Legal Anime Streaming (Free & Subscription)

I hope those who pirated Chainsaw Man can at least throw them a bone since it's like 5 bucks sub or dub on most platforms right now. But still seems weird to me because isn't it available for free on Crunchyroll (with ads)? Or are some shows held back?
