I usually do both, especially if CR doesn't have the Anime I want. Besides, I usually just watch it on the site. I usually don't download it.

And it is better to own the dvd, BUT unless I can have the whole anime, there is no point in buying an dvd

I've been watching Crunchyroll on my TV since my first visit (HTPC for the win).

Now that CR has a Roku channel, everyone that can spare $60-$100 can get in on the fun.



Well the main reason is lack of mouse to use, I have a PS3 so I can if I want to but I don't normally as I am either in the middle of a game or something, I could use a cable but the frame of the screens don't match

As in Non-usa, I can only count 105 anime (titles) in the index, streaming both on PSN and places like crunchyroll is limited main stream stuff if lucky... so (or eitherway) don't know of Roku.

Something like youtubes tv channel thing but for Crusnhyroll?

Torrenting is awesome, but only if the series is so good that I want to keep it. If I'm watching a new anime series and don't care about it, it's just easier to follow up on it on the web.

I find ways to watch what I want to watch one way or the other. If it is on CR I don't download it or watch it on other sites. If it isn't, the internets are huge and I WILL get my fix.

I pay money to buy DVDs, suscribe full access to CR, and have a netflix membership but if there's something I really want to watch then..

Ditto!

legal is better. I only download if not yet avaliable any other way.
As for the TV thing my TV has a VGA port so I just plug my laptop directly to TV.

But I am realistic and don't plan to wait that long


I acctually watch anime on video glasses but they don't have mind control and although you can walk while wearing them it can't be recommended as they have quite a large blind spot where the video screen is. They are also quite conspicuous.

Until recently, my setup was a relatively cheap 2.4GHz wireless mouse I purchased off eBay (recently replaced with a Logitech M510 that was on sale for $15), and a 27MHz wireless keyboard that was part of a set I purchased (the wireless mouse for that set was useless, but the keyboard works great). Connection to my HDTV is via a VGA cable.

As to Roku, it originally started out as a dedicated box strictly for viewing Netflix streaming content, but has expanded quite a bit since then. There probably isn't any reason they couldn't sell it overseas, especially since some of the channels (like Crunchyroll, Revision3, Vimeo, etc.) are international but I suppose the Netflix-centric beginnings have something to do with that. Think of a more limited version of the Boxee Box, but at half to one-third the price.

The "channels" are really just a way of segregating content from various providers.

Humm frankly I would like to watch anime on Crunchyroll IF and ONLY IF the series are available here. There are not many anime options to choose from crunchyroll so you will have to go sidetracks -.-;

I prefer to watch it legally. The last time I watch fansubs anime I found it's the network version and it was censored. Saw Girls Bravo fansubbed and saw the English dub and found out the English dub was uncut while the fansubs was censored (it was the Network version).

I watch legally only. There are many series that are legally available (and for free, for the most part) on sites like Crunchyroll. There's also Hulu, Funimation's video portal site, VizAnime, Toonzaki and some of the official Youtube channels and then there's The Anime Network,.

For some of the series only the first two episodes are free, while the rest aren't free on TAN.

TheWB has some anime series, like Angelic Layer, Kiba, and the Animatrix (the animated version of Matrix).

You can see what series you want from this link: http://www.mania.com/aodvb/showthread.php?t=88574
