wats another good site to find anime and dramas online cuz i noe that there are sites that dun have all their shit licensed, and since so much stuff has been taken off crunchyroll in the past like 9 months. my friend was telling me about some site that sounds like (vee-oh) but i havent been able to find it but apparently a lot of ppl use it.


veoh is not really that good tho... the web is very slow... and they remove videos as well, worst still they normally dun remove all the episodes, they remove SOME so u cannot watch the whole bloody series, makes u so fastrated... what a good strategy to make ppl buy box sets...

Well, let me say one thing. Unlicensed anime isn't subtitled. Without having any way of knowing What the hell people are saying, I really don't have a choice now do I.If you think that those import DVDs with the english subtitle options actually help the license holders get money, you are wrong. Those are fake releases bootlegged in Hong Kong. The original releases don't have subtitles.


No, there are legalities in imports with subs, here in Australia not a single shop I go to sell bootlegs which were shown in sources I found which clearly showed me that animes in the legal list were all the animes I actually saw at the shops, nothing more than that and what was in the illegal list were nowhere to be seen at the shop

Maybe if you find the R2 release, but you can only find R2 releases online and chances are that they are not compatible with your DVD player. If they are region all releases, then they aren't legal. Chances are, they may seem legal, but they really break international law. If the back of the DVD is in cantonese, then its a bootleg. If theres an fx on the side, its a bootleg. The only official releases I can think of that are available in Australia would be the UK release, the US release, or the R2 release. Otherwise, its fake.

Well they only have asian stuff, perhaps it's R2, thing is my DVD player's all region anyways, not to mention I can use my computer too, but in anycase, if the shop was illegal, odds are someone would've reported it and it would've closed down as I've known bootleg shops have been dealt with, but the thing is, it's been there for as long as I can remember (not to mention it sticks out especially in china town), and there's about 3 other similar shops with the same range

Would they catch me if I had a bag full of licensed an unlicensed anime downloaded and copied onto DVD-ROMS for future viewing pleasure at an airport?

Depends on where you had it. Suitcase, hand luggage, on your person. Also depends on which country your in and what the DVDs look like.

Well, I would just be traveling to another state in America, And I'd keep it inside of my luggage, most likely hidden under the clothes.. I just don't wanna re-download over 20-30 gigs of anime.. Not to mention look for all the ones I've had a hard time finding..

Um well I'm in England and have only used American airports a few times but I think if you put lots of DVDs under your clothes you might get in trouble if your caught. Sometimes you get felt up ~ oops I mean searched for no apparent reason.
Since the DVDs would be on your person they would probably think it's a little suspect and pay more attention then if it's just a bunch of DVDs in your suitcase or handluggage. I personally carry lots of DVDs with me when I'm going on extended holidays. I put them in a DVD holder in my suitcase and even when English airports were on high alert throwing away people's hand cream, I didn't have any problems. Even if you put them in your hand luggage they won't open and search only scan, their busy have thousands of people to deal with so they will only see a bunch of DVDs there won't be an in depth inspection (unless you do something dodgy like hiding them under your clothes). So I guess the short answer is no you probably won't be caught.
