Are there any legal sites that have anime for download so I can watch it offline? I don't mind paying for the download and the selection on itunes is pretty thin.

I can do that with Amazon.com using my Kindle Fire HD for at least some vids. I just now tested it with Patema Inverted. The Prime ("free") selection isn't huge, but there are other ones that can be rented or purchased as well.

I usually purchase the titles I really want, then pull them onto my NAS. I took all of Jormungand on a trip with me last month.

I don't know of any, but the idea sounds like a gold mine.

I thought Funimation had a collaboration with iTunes for a while where you could 'own' the episodes there, download them. Not sure if they continued, maybe it wasn't popular?

I was going to suggest checking Viz, since they've got a download to own section (http://www.viz.com/anime/dto -- but it looks like everything there redirects to iTunes.)

That is the next big frontier. I would have bought all 148 episodes of HxH by now. But I doubt it will happen. How else will Aniplex charge an arm and a leg for their shit?

Thank you... I take a look. It might make searching easier than the itunes search any way.

Seems like you're trying to search iTunes but there is an entire category for anime. Link opens in iTunes.

I would say they have a decent selection, but unfortunately for me most of it is dubs, and of the subs most of them are the broadcasted originals (i.e. Tokyo Ghoul subbed is still censored according to reviews).

Also, ignore the current selection of free anime on that page, for some reason they put American animation there, but occasionally FUNimation will put the first episode of a season for free.
