Ya, I would buy the anime only if its a good one and not too long of an anime. Like Hellsing or Elfen Lied for example.

I don't have much any deciding factor. I'll buy if i can't find it online very easily. sometimes I'll buy if an anime I've been looking for happens to be in front of me and i have the chance.

buying is also pretty nice for when i show stuff in anime club at school.

One thing that sucks about living in the UK is that even when Anime are licensed in English, we don't get to see them. Only an occasional, really shit one comes overseas (see: Gundam Wing - decent show, terrible dub), and good series like Gundam SEED don't even get a look in. Without getting to see these Animes... how the hell am I suppose to be persuaded to buy it?

"Oh look, it's that Anime I've never seen! And doesn't get sold at any of the local stores! I should totally buy it! With money I don't have!"

Hell, I intend to buy the DVDs of all the series I've watched on here (and liked).

I use to buy just because of the graphics since I didn't know too much on what is "good" but after getting internet service I find it is soooo good to preview and watch a series and If it gets a high 7 and up with a high repeat to watch? I'll buy the anime series. Manga for me is the same way. That is how i kill two birds with one stone.

Now if a series come up and I don't know anything next to it. . .I pass it over because I don't want to be disappointed in buying a half ass stupid plot of a story. I wasted so much money before that now I feel stingy cause it is a lot of work and money to be in this hobby. Therefore, I think that the companies should give props to fan sub groups for doing them a favor. They are publicizing for free to consumers like us who are pretty new or interested in anime and manga. That is how we as consumers buy from them. To tell you the truth, I buy all anime that I know I will watch repeatedly because I want to support the creator.

Personally, I like it better when I can watch anime on a big-screen tv and invite friends over than watching it by myself on a computer so I would definitely consider buying some of my favorite anime if I had the chance. Like many have already mentioned, I don't want to buy anime which I haven't seen before so I can only buy what I know I'll like.

i never knew it but they sell anime over here in UK too! I found one in a HMV store =P
i would love to support the team behind the anime.. but the only reason i dont buy anime from shops is that i cant stand the horrible horrible american dubbing. Im sure not every1 in america speaks like that.. but i just cant stand it.

e.g. they completelt ruined 'The Beautiful yet Ugly World' or i think its called that.
halfway through the first episode and i just stopped in disgust lol

I buy wa-a-a-y to much anime, I like crunchyroll for my not yet in America needs but as soon as it comes here I buy it, my Amazon wishlist (I keep track of release dates) is pages long... I think I have over 30 box sets and over 75 individual dvd's and very rarely resell them to get more. My husband says it's an addiction.

I bought one anime before. It was Rune Soldier. I only bought it cause I couldn't download it at the time and I really wanted to watch the whole series. Is a good purchase. I wouldn't mind buying more licensed video when I am in a better financial position. Yeah, the dubbed version sucks. The only good dubbed anime is Ranma 1/2, I like that equally as much as the subbed version.

I would buy anime to watch just like seasons of other shows I watch. Yeah, I can watch them for free either on TV or the internet, but the quality of the audio and video, the packaging, and the overall feel of supporting something I like makes me feel better about purchasing it.
