This is probably going to sound dumb, but part of me wants a physical anime collection, but the other part of me is thinking "What's the point in spending all that money if you can just stream most of it?". Does anyone else think like this? I'm imagining that I'm just looking to be convinced to start buying Blu Ray box sets, because it seems alluring for some unknown reason.

I don't. I have an anime account so I do pay for anime. And I just bought my first manga today actually. Gonna buy the entire 6 vol. collection of Sailor Moon too. So I'm working on it

I don't have time for collections. I don't have the time to watch the past anime, all I can do is watch the current season then move on to the next when that's over.

I was planning on buying FMA Brotherhood manga and anime. That is one anime I can rewatch.

cuz it is yours. You own it. You can even write your name all over it.

as opposed to Netflix or CR or w/e, it's not yours. You don't own it. And you don't know how long that service will have it.

My sister has bought some anime DVDs, but I've never seen the point of collecting anime DVDs because you can watch all of the anime you want online for free. You can either torrent or stream it for free. I don't care about the legality of free anime. I just like watching free anime.

I already pay for it online so there's no point

I find it fun collecting my favorite shows.
I really want to buy Fairy Tail but it's quite expensive.

That pretty much sums it up.

Partly because while I have great internet service most of the time.. sometimes it goes down for a day or more at a time. Having my DVD/BD array lets me continue watching on my laptop while I wait for service to resume.

Also, I love behind the scenes and outtakes, which I often only get in disc format.

If you want a reason it's to support your favorite anime companies and to hope that your contribution along with the others helps them get the money to produce the product (anime).
Yeah you can pay for CR and watch the shows like that or even watch anime for free on some websites, but if people don't ever spend money on anime the companies will not have enough money to create new or continue shows. So you can look at it as contributing to your favorite company or anime on continuing or making new shows.

And yes I do collect dvds/bluerays but I have only just recently started my collection.
Hope you help to support the anime community!

And also I agree with this:

I started way, way before streaming services began, it became a habit and it's proven to be a hard one to stop some 1000 + DVDs/ Blu Rays later.

I only have Black Lagoon, Heavens Lost Property, Infinite Stratos and the Evangelion Rebuild movies. I have way more to get, but I feel as if it's an accomplishment for myself. Not much of a reason, but it's enough for me to keep buying them.

I started collecting a long time before streaming was even a thought. To me, buying dvds ( now mostly bluray) is a hobby and I enjoy seeing my physical collection grow. I do it because I like to, and that's the only thing that matters.
