    Looks like Suiraku has decided to discontinue designing models (possibly due to copyright issues)... PLEASE TELL ME MY JAPANESE TRANSLATION WAS WRONG!!! ANYONE!!!

    (translation from BBS section)

    Any of you think there's a chance to change his mind if all this is true?
  2. Wow. I don't know what to say to that. What a loss!

    I'm pretty sure the site won't be down, but for now I'm not expecting any updates in the near future... 残念... It's hard to find another site like this one.

    Very sad indeed - do you think it's the Anime companies who created the characters that are complaining ?

    I suppose so... Who else would care? Suiraku also says he is having some problems with his health...

    Could be that someone is misinformed about the nature of the models. It only takes one person to say somethings being used for profit to shut the whole deal down. Well Mizuirogakuen will just have to create something 'similar' to what is out there.

    The sad part about this is how many models are removed from public that actually benefit the subject matter like anime. I would be more interested in something if I already had familiarity with it.

    C'est la vie.

    Who was it said, "leave the fans alone and they'll make you rich ?" Fan art does a lot to promote a subject.

    Okay so things are not that bad after all... Suiraku replied saying there will still be new models, but they will all be original so no copyright thingies whatsoever. Good news...

    Good news indeed - his original models are just as good as the 'branded' ones

    I have yet to gather the courage to try an anime model, but these were definitely on the list. Glad to hear there still be some coming, for once I do get the courage.

    The Great Bird of the Galaxy definitely understood fan art. If it weren't for us (yep, I'm a big time Star Trek nerd for as long as I can remember) Star Trek would have died in the Sixties. As long as there are fans who respect the original and its creator(s), anything can last forever

    I archived all the figurine models. The artform is almost a flash in the pan. I think it is good to get the models while you can that way if big brother says no at least they are still out there.

    I've deleted a couple of posts here. One appeared to be a site offering pirate downloads and one proposing to share files without the authors permission, neither of which is acceptable on this site.
