I torrent quite a bit because Crunchyroll can't get the licensing for some Anime that are released in America and yet that aren't released here in the U.K. So far been torrenting Ao no Exorcist, Steins Gate and Hidan No Aria because it's the only way i can see it.

Only if it's series unlicensed for x-amount years, not being streamed or has never come to the states then yes I do. I am only torrenting 3 anime series this season "ano hana, a-channel and qwuaser season II dc" compared to 10 like last year. The only other example i can use is for higurashi, zero no tsukima etc, due to the fact that season 2 never came here state side and I need some sense of conclusion. The same goes for ova's/oad's, specials that do not make it on american releases as well. That's all I really have to say on this. Rika Smiles at this but do remember people even with this defending actions it's still illegal to do so don't think other wise it's up to your own code of ethics to do so.

Why the hell do you NOT torrent anime?
BakaBT is friend.

Streaming is fast i agree but it takes a hell of a lot out of the original quality.

I'm not a fan of Torrenting, it's not really my thing...

I prefer having a physical collection, it feels more, real?

I don't know how to describe it, I just prefer the physical collection, makes it feel more like a collection.

Although I will admit, I have been guilty in the past of downloading and burning to DVDs...

I never really did much at all with torrenting; when I was actively involved in the community, I was fervently against it, actually. (If anyone remembers the groups BakaMX, Oretachi, or 3D-Fansubs, I've been in all of them.) And with my DVD backlog, I had no need to even stay online to watch anime. But then there was a second season of something here that's not out on DVD. I had problems streaming it, but found something else, and, yeah... here I am...

Eh.. I torrent regularly.. less so this season than previously, but if a show isn't simulcast, or is simulcast way later than the fansubbers get it out, I'll torrent it. 3+ days generally, unless I really am loving the show, in which case I'll torrent it even in cases of "earlier the same day" releases. I'm down to only about 10 shows I'm torrenting this season (only 3 of which fall into the "way late 'simul-cast'" category (A week later is not a simulcast, it is fail, funimation, fail.)
I know the legal issues, but between income and language, I don't have the resources to support everything I enjoy by watching through totally above-board means.

I still torrent all the time, but ever since I've joined Crunchyroll, I've started to feel a little guilty about torrenting something that I can buy legally. So, what usually ends up happening, is that I'll torrent for a while, start to hate myself, go out and actually buy some anime, then start the whole process over again. It's a vicious circle.
