YMMV: Bang Zoom! Entertainment
  • Harsher in Hindsight: in 2010, CEO Eric P. Sherman stated that Bang Zoom! that the studio will stop dubbing anime due to internet piracy. Fans either 1.) had a good scoff at Sherman's complete nonsense, 2.) outright yelled at him for dare speaking down to the fans as if they don't have any respect, or both. Two years later, Bandai Entertainment, Bang Zoom! last largest client for their dubs, will shut down DVD/BD distribution. Good job "fans," now there will be no more anime dubs coming from Bang Zoom!... at least, under Bandai!
  • Hate Dumb: The response to Sherman's 2011 announcement that Bang Zoom! may stop releasing dubs. Most fans took it as a vengeful attack on people who watched anime online instead of supporting the industry, but which would nevertheless hurt all dub fans. Very few of them seemed to take into account that the possible discontinuation of Bang Zoom! dubs had a lot to do with the fact that, with the high cost of producing a dub contrasted with the growing number of people choosing to pirate instead of spend money, dubbing would stop because it would no longer be a viable option.
  • Internet Backdraft: The comments from CEO Eric P. Sherman regarding digital piracy.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Heat Guy J cost as much to dub as Fullmetal Alchemist, but it ended as a big flop to the point that it helped cause Geneon to bankrupt themselves.
  • Woolseyism: A good portion of their dubs.
