If it's not on CR, then I turn to the other legal streaming sites such as Hulu or Daisuki (I haven't tried the Funimation site yet). Anything that I can't find at legal streaming sites, I buy on DVD/Blu-ray.

If there isn't a DVD/Blu release for my region (region 1) and it isn't streaming on a legal site, then I either wait for the DVD/Blu release or I don't watch it, and I wait to see if someone picks it up for release at a later date.

I don't download fansubs (Torrent, FTP, Dropbox, etc...) or stream it off unlicensed sites (or through tech such as Google Hangouts), atm. I pretty much run a clean hobby these days.

Discussing specific illegal streaming or download sites/resources is against the forum rules, just FYI.

I still jog over to the darkside pretty regularly for things though.

I use magic for all my anime needs outside of Crunchyroll.

I call my magic wand Google. I just swing it around and say the magic words : Abracadabra Buddy Complex Episode 12!
And poof, my wishes come true.

Google is not an illegal anime source. It is the vortex where all informations collide, good and bad. It is without morality.

yep, I like to catalog the anime I watch and keep it around in case I want to watch it again. of course, it unfortunately takes a lot of HD space, but oh well. hard drives are getting cheap for more and more storage. just threw a 4TB HD in my new computer.

Well, in the UK we do have an option to pay to download an episode of anime like Space Dandy, Kill la Kill & Samurai Flamenco via Wakanim. I haven't tried it myself, but it's nice to see a legal way of digitally owning newer shows that are currently airing in Japan. :)

Nope. I watch it on CR and if it's not here, I try another site. Downloading can lead to internet AIDS and other viruses.

2TB is for pr0n, the other 2TB is for... whatever else... I'm sure of it...

Seriously though, 4TB? That's 3TB more than I have.

nah, I picked it up at Best Buy, actually. 4TB Seagate HDD, SATA 3.0 supporting up to 6Gb/s data transfers. wish I could say I paid only $140 for it....

and I assure you, it's 50% anime, 50% games. my 1TB and 1.5TB external drives are all anime. pr0n is streaming, d00d.
