No way in hell. If you truly like Anime you should be helping the publishers by paying to watch it or watching on a Legal site such as Crunchyroll. I can understand maybe watching 1 or 2 episodes to see if you like it, but its unfair to the creators.


This. I used to be a huge internet archive; for a while, I was having to burn 10 CDs per day just to keep up! Then I left college. And I met a few people in the industry. I refuse to contribute to something that is harming them.

I don't download or burn anime. I watch on sites like Crunchyroll (i.e. legal sites) because I want to support the anime industry.

it's quite disadvantage when you play it occasionally coz the disc gets scratches

i download anime though torrents and save them with my external HDD

Going to agree. If you like it so much, you would buy or watch on legal sites. Too many people in the anime world complain all friggin' day that "this series was never released or this didn't get a dub, or funimation where's season 2?", well here's your answer: your not contributing. People who download and pirate anime make me wanna puke cause they are the biggest hypocrites by not paying or supporting and expecting the companies to dish out. Money doesn't grow on trees.

Though I agree that harming the creators business is bad the libarary of anime legal sources offer is way to small for me. So I still end up downloading my anime and storing it away. I am however planning on a trip to Japan and while I'm there I'm going to buy EVERY single anime I've ever watched.

Also note that I'm also going to learn Japanese so if the anime is subbed or not will not be a problem ^.^

And yes, I'm serious. Learning Japanese and going to Japan are two of my life goals. Buying all Anime I've watched is to repay the creators.
