Your absolutely right about to worry. The first time I contributed to a purchase I wasn't sure about what the results would be either. The trust would have to be earned but maybe we can do this so that there's a minimal risk for you and others.
I can contribute the full amount for a single blu-ray with the other member who's contacted me privately. He's got a contact in Japan who can purchase and rip the disc for us. Once the iso is ripped and distributed to us we can offer that up to anyone who wants to buy in. Let's say we have 4 people who are interested and let's say the disc is $40 USD. $10 each would get you access to that iso. If this works out to everyone's satisfaction we can then begin to set up a system were we vote on the following titles to be purchased, gather the funds and distribute the iso.
This is just my first attempt at trying to figure this out. I just want more KIDM titles so maybe you or another member have a better idea of how we can do this.
There are other options out there to get KIDM titles:
Desioner on Akiba-online also offers to purchase and rip most Japanese discs. He's always delivered and his rips are great but we're hoping we can do this for a better cost. I'll have to work the costs out with the other member but I'm hoping it's just the cost of the disc without shipping and handling. So hopefully $20-$30 dollars less.
You can also purchase a membership from youiv which gets you about 3-4 titles for about $70 USD. Those aren't iso rips but they might be good enough for others out there. They also don't allow titles to be shared unless you want to be banned from their site.
I'd love for this to happen but I want to be realistic about it as well. Any suggestion or thoughts on getting this to happen would be appreciated.
