With the prices of anime by me, I could care less. uTorrent ftw.

and of course they sell anime by seasons...for $100 plus, if it's on sale!

And I'm not paying that when I could just torrent it....sorry.

Feeling guilty about downloading anime and mangas... Oh hell no! I have probbably contributed over tens of thousands of dollars buying anime/manga during my youth when they were expensive and obscure... back then buying my first VIZ-Lum comis was like $3.95 for a 28page manga. -.-... Videotapes were like $40.... and misc. items firgurines, posters, etc... too much.

I believe I earned myself well earned credit for all the money I put on anime/manga... I mean without my generations contribution to anime/manga it still would be obscure...

Estimated cost I spent collecting anime: $25,000 over the last 20 years.

Even though anime is one of my favorite things on earth Im not dishing out countless amounts of cash just to get my ends worth. Thats why I dont mind downloading, or streaming.

Without torrents or CR I wouldn't know what Anime or movie is worth buying. For instance, I don't have BBC but I love their documentaries so I get the torrent and if I really like it, I buy it....so no, I don't feel guilty at all.

All, I know is I have CR to thank for these Asian Dramas.... LOL... just as good as anime in some parts. At least if something drastic happens where they need to remove certain animes... the DRAMAS will be left alone.

I buy AND download.

Boxsets are ALOT cheaper than they used to be. I just picked up both the complete Vision of Escaflowne and Genshiken boxset for $55 (together). New releases are still expensive, but anime originally released a couple years ago is cheap. Unless your a broke high school student, no reason not to pick up the series you really enjoy. $50 a boxset isn't unreasonable at all in my oppinion. It used to be really expensive a few years ago, but things have gotten alot better (since they have to compete with downloaders so much now).

Like Genji said, I've put ALOT of money into the anime industry. I don't feel guilty downloading, especially since I still buy DVDs (though not as often as I used to, but I have more expenses now since then). Between DVDs, manga, anime-esque games, figures, OSTs, etc, I've put an easy $5000 into anime over the past 6 years, probably quite a bit more. I still try to buy the series I love, though I'm alot pickier than I was before I started downloading. Also, I tend to to focus on downloading unliscensed anime, though thats mainly becuase I've seen so much of whats out there that interests me.

I'm poor so i can't buy it that's why i have to learn torrents, irc and other p2p programs to satisfy my anime and manga needs.
