Why I came to Crunchyroll
Posted 8/21/12
Hello Crunchyroll!

The site looks amazing, I look forward to watching my favorite animes and reading my favorite mangas to discuss with you guys!

Anyways, I've come here because my last computer went down from being taken over by viruses.
I have come to spread the word to prevent people from downloading anime, because it's a very risky business.

This subtly also tells you that watching from crunchyroll is better.



Why you should not download anime.
Some known sources to download anime:
Nyaa
BakaBT
TokyoToshokan
#news
AnimeTake
AnimeTosho
AnimeSenshi

I will now go in depth about why each one is terrible.


Nyaa is as suspicious as it sounds. There are new viruses called "catz" which stand for "Computer Anti-Tech Zebras". Zebras are code for Trojans (they look alike, hence the name, and cath sounds worse anyways).

BakaBT, as the name suggests, makes you realize you are an idiot the second you download something. Viruses fucking galore.

TokyoToshokan. Toshokan actually means killer in Japanese. By using this website, a virus called Tokyo (Tom's Old Komputer YUO OIP). (YUO and OIP are some serious technical shit.) These render your computer useless.

#news takes on a new form of downloading called XDCC. Basically, you can watch anime as you download it. However, this means that the virus is also activated as it is downloaded. Therefore, by the time you finish watching, the virus will have come to it's final form, and your computer compromised.

AnimeTake is also a giveaway. Just look at the name. You get anime from it, it takes your personal identity. That's already bad enough.

AnimeTosho is bad for similar reasons to TokyoToshokan.

AnimeSenshi. Senshi is Japanese for warrior. In other words, it installs a virus that enters your computer, seiges your firewall, and cuts down all the necessary files for your computer.

In other words, you should NOT download anime no matter what you do.


After thousands of hours of research, this is what I could come up with.
The world is a dangerous place. Take my advice and be careful.

I came to C-roll because I thought it would be nice to watch my anime on a legitimate site commercial free(which is why I got a premium membership the day I signed up). I love the industry too much to get my anime fansubbed from some seedy site.

Oops, didn't let it finish uploading

As you can see, I had to make that gif as my computer was dying, so it's all white and fuzzy

Can you guys tell me if it's white and fuzzy for you too?

If it's just me, I might have to call tech support. They always tell me to restart my computer, but it never works.

And I really don't want any jokes. Last time, they said the only way to fix it was delete system32. I did so, but it seems that my virus got to it first.

I regret ever downloading.

Great to have another person joining and supporting the anime/drama industry.

Try to limit the use of emoticons if you're going to be on the forums since spamming 20 's will probably cause people to ignore/argue with you.

Edit: Yes it's fuzzy. No, do not delete System 32 unless you want your computer to be an oversized paper weight.

Oh sorry.

HAHAHA. I had to laugh at those virus names and the downloadable sources names...

These downloads and virus names are genius and fitting to it. I find it hilarious. Viruses are not hilarious, no, but those names... "nyaa!" "catz!" ROFLMFAO. Perfect fit.

...

Ahem. Welcome to CR! ^_^ ~

To watch HD anime that was legal. I used to download anime "another way" and felt really guilty so decided to come on CR

Crazy isn't it?
The internet can be such a weird place.
Like this one place called 9gag, and they found this amazing anime called Code Geass!

I watched it, and it was amazing, but the main character dies at the end. It's so sad. His best friend stabs him in the chest.



Oops! Sorry for the spoilers. I hope you still enjoy the anime, if you watch it

Then I found Evangelion. This is war the viruses started to happen. I was watching the last episode, finished it.
As I watched Komm, Susser Todd, my computer's status started tumbling down and that's when the tech support story starts
