Little Kuriboh reported yesterday that the Asia Northwest Cultural Education Association (ANCEA) had his GUHROOGAMESH!!!1 video removed from YouTube. There’s no word from LK what sparked this sudden removal, but some people speculate that it was due to LK’s use of an audio clip from the original Sakura-Con commercial. ANCEA is a non-profit organization whose only purpose, as far as I can find, is to host the convention Sakura-Con in Seattle, Washington. Someone should tell ANCEA that Sakura-Con’s programming includes the screening of AMVs, which all contain copyrighted video and audio that they don’t have permission to use. Their hypocrisy is stunning, isn’t it?

On Monday afternoon, 4Kids added a video of the first Japanese closing of YGO DM to their Japanese episodes playlist on YouTube. The song is “Genki no Shawaa” (“An Energizing Shower”), sung by Aki Maeda. There’s been no word from 4Kids’ Nameless Cubicle Office Guy when more full episodes, either English or Japanese, will be added.
