While importing BD's and DVDs do support the industry, thewizardninja should realize that, unlike fansub groups, CR pays licensing fees in order to show their selection legally.

As for Progeusz, I'd just ignore him since he/she is probably at an age where "licensing restrictions set by the Japanese themselves" would get a dumbfound face in response.

@Tashfinz - I think most of the people who are downloading anime don't see themselves as doing anything wrong, sadly. It doesn't click that their actions could impact others. But I think they are a minority.

True and the CR subtitles have better quality control

If they did it most likely would be a pay per episode style like iTunes, because the anime producers need to be paid.

Anime, movies, shows, books, programs, apps, music. I pay for all of it and support the industries and artists this way. I work in the software industry myself, my mother is an artist, I have friends who are musicians, vocal talent, writers and we all deserve to be paid for our work. More than this, if you like the work and you want to see and hear more, you must support it!

Sadly the world is full of selfish freeloaders who don't give a damn.

The last guy has a point, a lot of streaming services aren't available to people outside the US and it anoys me people fail to realise we don't all live there. In the UK I don't have access to services like Funimation and Hulu, and the Netflix anime list is quite small still. I don't know if his country can't really use CR or whether hes just not realised CR is available where he lives yet, but streaming still has quite a way to go.

Can understand actually wanting to download anime as well. For a start you need a good internet connection to stream in high quality, which a lot of people don't have, my connection struggles with 1080 and 720 at peak hours. You don't always have access to the internet in the first place. As soon as your sub ends you can't watch it. Ect ect, you know all this.

Streaming is still pretty crap for a lot of people basically.

OP you're from England I notice so I assume you already know how expensive and/or difficult it can be to get hold of some anime here legally.

People need to stop treating fansub downloaders like they're as bad as murderers and realise that in terms of income and location, some of you are luckier than you seem to realise. I buy what I can afford.

I understand where you're coming from cus we do have limited anime here and Crunchyroll are doing their best with the amount of Anime's we have here for the U.K on Crunchyroll. As for the connection it is starting to improve a lot over here in the U.K as we have Virgin Media and BT rolling out the fibre optic broadband. I really can't complain to be honest, however that point I was trying to make with the first post was that if there is a legitimate way to watch the anime you're downloading then you should support it to ensure that the creators carry on making the series and so that they get credit for their hard work. However for shows like One Piece and other Anime's that we get restricted from watching I think it's ok to watch through other means as we can't literally see it any other way.

To be honest animeondemand really sucks and they hardly update their site and they still don't have a single Anime for this current season nor any planned for the next one. So Crunchyroll for the U.K audience is still vastly superior in my books.

Yeah there's just no arguing with people who access their content illegally. For whatever reason they can't get some the content they want, so they steal it instead!

There's no way in the deepest pits of Hell I would ever pay the full price of admission for a bunch of dubbed garbage. On the other hand, I don't necessarily feel entitled to the subbed anime through subscription websites like Crunchyroll or Netflix, either. Actual raw anime files I wouldn't pay a single penny per episode as I can't understand what they're saying and all.

What it comes down to for me is that I'll watch subscription based anime I can get legally for cheap if the producers are willing to provide it to me, whether I know much about it or not.

I'll ignore the anime I know nothing about that seeks to suck more money out of me than I'd ever be willing to part with. No matter how good people say the show is.
