zoro. to was, for two years, One of the biggest pages to watch pirate anime. In a move that confused its users, To evade Google services and combat piracythe webpage has changed and redirected to a new domain.

However, this is the norm nowadays. It is no longer about creating original and attractive pages, but about moving user communities And the code already programmed in new areas does not punish Google and prolong the persecution of the authorities.
in a message on Discordcollected by piunikawebPage admins themselves acknowledge that they are changing due to issues with the US Digital Copyright Act (DCMA) and allude to this. A new team controls everythingPerhaps to avoid blame.
Google had already removed 47,300 links in Zoro, as requested by the DCMA. If it reaches 50,000, the web will be blocked and this may be the reason for the name change: Allow Google to reset the counter to 0 and start over.
This has happened before in other sectorshowever, for some reason in one of the desired reasons such as animeperhaps due to its distance from Japan as a producing country, does not generally make headlines.
