Hi to all, just wondering why is the anime list really small in comparison to some other streaming sites, I love the connectivity with my devices, and the HD feature, but on just a few titles. What gives?

I assume by "other streaming sites" you mean fansub sites that list every anime under the sun because they pirate the material. It is easy to have a large list of titles when you neither obtain the copyright holder's permission, nor pay them a dime.

Aside from having almost every title you can think of, other signs of an illegal site are:

1. Hosting the videos externally (using services like Myspace Video, Daily Motion, etc.).
2. Having more than one video source for each episode (in the event one gets taken down).
3. Not having any applications to view on devices (since none of the online app stores would allow an app from a service providing pirated video streams).

^As stated above. I just want to send a huge thank you in your way for helping out in the forum. BK should make you a mod.
