Dattebayo to stop fansubbing Naruto

Naruto Shippuuden

Dattebayo fansub group has announced that they will permanently stop subtitling and distributing Naruto on January 15.

That date is when the, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Joost websites will officially begin streaming the latest episodes of the Naruto Shipp┼źden series one week after their Japanese broadcast — for free.

"Interactii," an alias from Dattebayo organizer, said that an episode of Naruto Shipp┼źden would get 450,000 downloads in its first week.

"Interactii" notes that Viz Media, the North American official distributor of the anime and manga series, had never asked Dattebayo to stop subtitling and distributing Naruto.

He continues, "But like any symbiosis, you have to know when its time to move on. That time has come.

"Viz and Crunchyroll have gotten their acts together and are trying something new, with one of the most popular shows in anime today.

"I, and the rest of the staff, know that if we continue to subtitle it, they will have to ask us to stop. That's something they probably don't want to have to do, because it will most likely make all of you very mad at them. That's something they really don't deserve."
