    English Subtitles are provided in the CC options in the control bar.

    The Japanese mass media is a sluggish, lazy, and myopic beast. Anonymous vs. Scientology was, not surprisingly, almost completely unknown in Japan for its entire run since 2008. Unfortunately, once AnonOps started messing with Sony, the media descended on any information about Anonymous with a frenzy, rushing through poorly researched and half-understood English sources, and converting whatever bullshit they found or invented into news.

    The result was that the name "Anonymous" was instantly associated with DDoS attacks and "dangerous hackers" or "cyber terrorists". Since most people in Japan considered Sony their "home team", Anonymous was vilified for attacking it, quickly blamed for the theft of personal data, ridiculed for the aborted IRL Sony Store protests, and then settled down in popular internet lore as "those weird hackers".

    Naturally, for those of us working in Japan since Chanology kicked off in 2008, this fucking sucked. Thankfully, we've managed to 'poon a lot of local comments sections and make some friends in the media who have been pretty cool about helping us set the record straight.

    Still, it felt like it was time to make another video announcement, so here it is. We explained a brief history about how "Anonymous" became "Chanology/AnonOps", and placed ourselves on the Chanology side. The rest of the video goes into recent activity we've done against Scientology in Japan, and a final appeal to any disgruntled exes or currently-in Scilons to leak any evidence of crimes or misbehaviour on the part of Scientology in Japan. Probably not too many takers, but it's worth a shot, even if it only serves to inspire paranoia in their ranks.

    Strange, it works here. Might be some delay in uploading? Maybe it's better to view it at YouTube directly instead of embedded.
  5. I watched on Youtube and got the English by clicking the interactive transcript button

    Keep it up, JapanAnon! Good idea on making a vid to correct the confusion of which Anon Group you were. Media is such a fickle thing.

    I was wondering how long it would take before somebody noticed the good old UNATCO theme song. (´∀`)
