Not to make it seem like I don't care, but...

This really isn't that big of a deal. TFS had over 90,000 subs, most of whom were attached to the individual members' accounts. They'll find their new account when it is up.

Moreover, they have podcasts with ThatGuyWithTheGlasses. They'll be fine.

As someone who's been kicked off four times and has had to rebuild from the ground up 4 times, I can't really feel myself having any sympathy for them. Sorry.

I can see how some people reacted to the fact that it was TeamFourStar, who did a parody of a Funimation product, and what that means for the rest of us. For those of you who don't know, Funimation and (now) 4kids are rather fair on abridged parodies.

But I've heard that it was their "Make a Man Out of You" video that caused them to be suspended, so the real culprit here might be Disney, rather than Funimation.

D-D-D-D-DDDDOUBLE POSTING!

Turns out that it was Toei, the owners of Dragon Ball Z in Japan, who did this, not Funimation.

I have to say now, after a few days of thinking on it, I am a little sad for Kaiser. The amount of effort and enthusiasm he put into this series was tremendous. That's not to put down Lani, Taka, Masako, LK, Megami, or the other members, but I have a feeling that TeamFourStar was his brainchild, and to see it go up in smoke like that must've been a painful sight.

According to Lani's blog, they seem to be trying to talk to Toei about the matter, and see if they can get the original TFS account back.

If not, then, as I've said before, they'll be back.
