@NegimaSonic

do you have any idea what you responded to?

because your entire response tells everyone you didn't!

its funny how many people use the "legal" word in their responses when trying to defend this sites short comings yet quickly add in the same breath there are other sites to get your anime from.

I supported Crunchyroll to support the anime industry not to support crunchyroll's legality DVD's and other merchandising was so taken advantage of by the license holders even at the anime peak the animators were being starved. nothing like the very people we owe all those shows we enjoy to, being screwed by some corporate sharks paying them peanuts while they get rich and then those very sharks whining that their profit margin is being affected by illegal downloads.

personally I couldn't care less if some corporate exec. from anime-middleman.inc can afford his new 50 foot yacht while the very artists are quiting the business because they can't even pay their bills for being screwed by the same corporations.

Thank you for the crunchyroll link. I hate sites I never heard of before (I'm talking about the previous link that was up.)

Personally, I feel that it would be pretty hard for me to say all of that in the same breath. I don't think I have the lungs for that. Maybe if I spoke very fast. Also, as you may have gleaned, I watched anime at other places before here but I'm trying to shift away from that as this is relatively convienient. Deep down do I care if it's legal?

Nope. Just something to occasionally preach about. I never talked down about other ways of watching anime because the way I see it if it's shown on TV its all the same as if I was there watching it (although yes, so and so anime exec doesn't get money from that since I'm in another country and not watching the commercials that paid for that anime). In the end, I only care for my own enjoyment. I'm still having mental anguish over "Shippuuden" being "Shippuden" now. I want the other U back even if it's not right!

Besides, unfortunately those execs matter, in the wrong way as I'm seeing too much on my normal broadcast television. Show after show getting canceled and replaced by repeats or singing shows just because a show wasn't getting perfect ratings, when there apparently are quite a few people who watch TV online or TiVo or whatever (I don't have those options regularly). If the execs aren't pleased, even a long time show could be pulled in an instant, and there's not a thing anyone could do about that legal or otherwise. Fansub groups can't fansub a show that isn't airing. Neither can CR buy an episode that doesn't exist. If they decided to cancel Shangri-La that would just be that. You can support the anime industry all you want in that case but the show will still be gone.

But CR is ok because so what about a week wait? If I never knew that there was an episode ahead it would be the same anyway, and I'm currently behind on all of my anime that I'm watching so I'm really unaffected by this ahhahaha. Anyway if you're doing it to support the anime industry through your support of CR, it's all the same as you supporting the legality as well.

You->Anime Industry->Crunchyroll<-Legal people<-money grubbing execs

Ho hum. Not the best chart but the point is: it all meets at the same place. Crunchyroll. Anyway, you support it your way and I'll support it my way. There's no real difference except 7 dollars, 7 days, and some ads.

By the way, I'm a fool so you don't have to worry about taking my words to heart.


OK after reading that huge pile of gibberish you make it impossible not to say you can't read and actually understand other peoples posts.

1) speak about licensee's and you go off on a tangent about broadcast executives not even close to the aforementioned group most responsible for animators getting the short end.

2) you literally typed exactly what you say you couldn't "in one breath" try reading your own previous post might be enlightening.

3) there are series getting cut all the time so many so the list would take days to type "whats your point?" because the licensee's didn't make enough off the animators backs they've killed the series there's nothing new about that and exactly why the anime-middleman.inc is a greater threat to the actual industry than any fan sub group could ever be they're so busy squeezing the golden goose to make it lay eggs they don't notice the goose is dieing.
