OK. Look, I can't claim any moral high ground here... I have torrented my share of stuff-i-reallyreallyreally-gotta-have.

But when it comes down to it, the stuff I like, I support. I am astonished at the number of people here who have such a fuck-you attitude. YOu can rail against the Anime studios all you like, but put them out of business and then just WHO IN HELL is going to make new ones. In manga, you get a lot of fan-generated material but I don't see that happening in the anime field.

I am finding it hard to believe that you slackers can't pony up 6.95 a month. Come on.

Anime Studio? What the heck are you talking about? Anime Companies such as Funimation and Bandai or even worst, 4Kids doesn't make any Anime. They simply buy the rights so they can sell it off elsewhere than Japan.

I personally don't see why I should go buy a membership thing when I don't even watch anything here.

6.95 is enough to keep me alive for 2-3 days.

It is. It is a superlative form of 'bad'.

Bad - Worse - Worst

It doesn't really make any sense reading it with the way they used it, now does it?

I have a membership. I got it mainly for Naruto. My reason is simple. I like supporting the artists that pour their heart into their craft. I started watching Kurokami after i joined and didn't hear of it until I joined CR. The addition of chinese dramas is also nice.

'Worst' is still a word. And grammatically speaking, May's wrong in using the word.

Well...CR got rid off every anime I actually LIKE anymore. And if I ever wanted to watch any of the other shows I can easily get them off anther site or watch a Chinese subbed one (the quality is not as good, but less bandwith and there as good as the English subs),
Besides, I don't really care about the 1 week pay. Since the only shows I'm watching is Reborn! and Shugo Chara! both of which I just started meaning it'd still be a while before I catch up to them.
And school is pretty busy so there's also no point paying to watch it earlier.

Yeah, I kind of mixed up worst with worser. Sorry about that.

Then perhaps I am the one misunderstanding. I didn't know that was who CR or other sites was paying licensing fees to. I thought CR and others were paying, like, TV Toyko, and Kyoto Animation adn the like.

Make no mistake, I have no love for Funimation or 4Kids. I may be a n00b here in anime-land, but I know what those kinds of outfits do to properties. I kinda had the feeling here that I was helping out the artist and writers and such.

Guess that was a bit naive on my part. Anyway, I still feel I get my 6.95 worth. Pretty cheap overall. I kinda like coming home from lunch on a lax Friday and watching a fresh epi of Hayate.

There you have it.
