    Cobranaconda: Surely they'd crack down hard on doujins (which the authors actually get paid for) before they even come near English fanfic.

    Yep. If they were actually serious about enforcing their copyright, they would. Or should. Personally, I'm convinced that this No Fanfic Allowed! rule is just for show. And this, basically, is why I spent days agonizing over whether or not to bring Those Three Publishers' no-fanfic policies to the NSWFF Mods' attention. Do you have any idea how many plot bunnies I've had to -

    Sorry. I'm still bitter about the whole darn mess.

    Still, the bottom line is that there's a statement at the official site saying no to fan fiction, and that NSWFF (and JC in general) seems to have a Better Safe Than Sued policy.

    Yes, better safe than sued. So as far as posting here goes fanfic from disallowed authors or publishers goes, even if the no fanfic rule isn't enforced, if it exists, it's not allowed.

    Sorry, but we can't risk the legal trouble.

    I've never heard of it. Do you have a website or a link of any kind?

    Here's the Wiki...

    I believe they're owned by TokyoPop...?

    And here's the official site.

    As a last... Death Note?

    That's TokyoPop, as well, I believe.

    Sorry for being a pain. [face_blush]

    Just to point out, TokyoPop doesn't own anything but its orginal works, it's mostly a translator. So it doesn't own either anything from the .hack// series or Death Note. It's also the company that brought the manga of Sailor Moon to the US, which we already noted as banned.

    Not to say they're banned, since lazykbys_left pointed out earlier that Death Note was okay.

    Hmm. Would Final Fantasy 7 fandom go here, under it's own thread, or under the miscellaneous thread?

    *headscratch*

    Ah well. Just to be certain that this post belongs in this thread, I like Trigun. 'Cause Vash is awesome.

    Awesome I think anime fan fics are great. I am thinking of penning one myself. It will be my first, but it's been on my mind for awhile.

    Totally think Final Fantasy as a whole needs its own thread, since its not really considered under anime. Maybe someone should start one? ;)

    And Trigun is certainly awesome.

    And that's cool, JEDI_TEEGIRLOO, what anime were you thinking of using?
