I am in the supporting party of RAW anime, hentai and manga. But, but,BUT... these shall be rules from point of my evil intention;
- not main stream,
- not popular,
- not a big company's work, but a small company's,
- released 5 or 7 or 9 years ago and no subtitled fan releases,
- old work with no new release, including dvd and remastered blu-ray.
in other words, any h-a-m work that was made in recent years and has already floating aoi ray or dv disks around, even still raw, shall not be classified as RAW, because there is still a chance. Beside, if the work has been non-English language fan-sub released, again not counted as RAW, because there is still option.
In this case, Highschool Aura buster should be allowed, Cat's Eye with newly remastered bd versions should not be allowed. But there is another thing; monochrome era anime-hentai-manga works, especially ARR releases many old raw anime and how many people are interested monochrome anime, like Astro Boy?
This is going to be a tall order, so here my final suggestions;
- the anime is released X years ago and has no any subtitled -disc/online stream- version, yes, including Japanese subtitles, because there are many anime releases without Japanese subtitle, but only Japanese language in Japan. Sad, but true.
- no any ongoing episodic translation, (Yawara! BD translation...)
- Monochrome section for very old raw anime, including remastered versions, the question; what happens the anime has already subbed version on BakaBt?
Another two keys are; if this is going to happen, should not cause extra work for moderators and should not turn BakaBt into HongFire or Anime-Sharing (hentai-wise). Because the server bill is not funny after over-sprouting
So, let's make a thread for RAW suggestions, inspect them to see if they are worthy to BakaBt and release the confirmed ones to see member reaction (downloading-seeding...) and if it successes on stability for raw anime hentai manga preservation, then we shall go with finalizing yes. Don't forget that, this is beta project. If not many members are interested in and the raw section is causing/wasting too much server coverage, no point to move on.
Another suggestion for the RAW, we may make an offer-request thread section on the forums. If any member wants raw work, request/post it here, by chance, another member has the work (anime,hentai.manga...), can upload onto public trackers or file sharing sites.
