Omo on Daisuki

I just found that Omo was ahead of John noticing Daisuki, only he buried the important part deep down some general post.

I hate to be pessimistic but there are not a lot of reasons why we should assume [Daisuki] can execute. To be honest the whole idea feels more like DOA, not because it’s a bad idea but because it’s likely run with the strings and chains attached to the same old suits that causes all these problems in the first place.

No quarrel here. Still, I am wary of underestimating the power of incumbent. Even if they do not deliver, they still can destroy. The way Bandai destroyed its own successful American presense is most instructive in this regard. And on a slightly positive side, look at Hulu. It is an American thing, but fundamentally it's the same phenomena: major content players deciding they want a piece of action in streaming and not wanting to share with Netflix.
