I'll make this clear.

You can buy anime for Best Buy for under $20
That's reasonable.

The actual anime distributor's are charging $25
because not many people buy them. I know its the complete opposite of supply and demand. I am just saying that they charge $25 because well... lets solve it mathematically.
Let's say there is 100 people in the US.
They buy the license for some anime for $100
No one buys anime because they are downloading it for free.
Meanwhile, 5 people who actually like anime and support it buy the DVD.
If the price of the DVD was $15, then the distribution company would lose $25
If they charge $25 then they make $25 which they use to feed their families.
I know it's overly simplified, but that is the main idea.

It wasn't so much download profits, but to give the idea of HOW many people actually download anime instead buying. Unfortunately, I don't know where THOSE stats are.

Ok you're making sense now (and it seems like you've calmed down too :]) but still I'd say their price gouging since they tend to tack on extra dollars to the actual production cost. I'm pretty sure if they just lowered MSRP a bit, they'd still make profit. Wonder how much the CEO of distribution companies make because you know that a lot of money goes to CEO salaries and severance packages.

Wait a minute, you're calling someone a n00b and you're saying, "No Offense?"

You fail.

You fail at insults. Or I could easily say that you just fail period.

Either you're insulting that kid or you aren't. Don't make a copout like, "No Offense." Also, the cute little emoticon? Makes you look juvenile.

If you're going to insult the n00bs, just make sure YOU don't look like one.

You all make me sick. You are all the plauge and downfall of anime. You are saying it's unreasonable prices?!?!?!
1 episode=30 minutes
4-5 episodes=120-150 Minutes
1 DVD= $25
You pay the same amount for a regular movie. Why should anime be any different?
Oh I forgot, your not fans of anime; YOU ARE ALL A FUCKING DISEASE!!!!
Oh and your all retarded if you think they only sell dub.
EVERY DVD HAS A LANGUAGE AND SUBTITLE FEATURE.( which by the way probable has a better translations and grammar then most of your shitty fansubs.)


Well maybe some people out there like me that are too young to work have to live with a $10 - $20 allowance every month, and with the released of manga and other DVD series...pricey. And no, unless you buy the box set, American released Naruto DVD's only have the dubbed version.

Licenses and crap lead to the final season of Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon not being brought here.

So you know I'm mad. But I make it work by watching it online.

Yeah, I don't like it when its licensed, because why not keep it in Japanese; 90% says its going to be horrible when dubbed.


Do you think every licensed anime is purely dubbed?

First of all, I wasn't even trying, or even intending to insult him. And that so-called "cute little emotion" meant that I wasn't even serious on what I've said. But what I couldn't comprehend was how does my comment make me a noob, or look like one? What you're saying does not make any sense. So there are ways to torrent if the Anime's licensed, did that comment make me a noob? And I've already explained that I was kidding when I was using my "failing insults". Does that make me a noob? Or was it that when I asked you to elaborate on what you've typed? I don't get it.

If the anime isn't licenced, I'll most likely Stream it on my computer.

If the anime is licenced, I'll either Torrent it on my computer or go buy the DVD.

Simple as that.
