I hate illegal anime sites. Sites like kissanime is among the biggest one. I wish all of those sites would be gone.


Some of us have little choice in the matter. Some can't afford to purchase Anime, and in a lot of places it's not even aired on TV. Even legal streaming sites, such as Funimation, have regional lockouts. Thankfully more legal anime streaming services are coming onto the scene.One of the biggest reasons people stream illegally is due to a lack of anime streaming services. I don't want to be paying $100+ per Season of a show I like. Hulu isn't available in Australia. Netflix AU doesn't offer much. Funimation has a regional lockout. Just imagine the nightmare for other countries.

Advertisements are f**** horrible. I dont like them, and never will. An ad here or there is fine, but today its gone overboard.

Pretty much every damn site i visit have ads. That is not okay. I should not have to endure and suffer from that, so i love adblock. And i often pay for things too, sometimes just to avoid ads. I used to have Spotify unlimited/premium, i have CR premium and netflix.

And sites that have sounds / videos which start automatically deserves no revenue from ads.

All I know is support what you love cause no one else is. And if something can't stand up
and make it cause leeches and other thieves then I guess we all end up at a loss. I agree
with you and have no adblock for me. Most of the people using it don't give a fu%^ and
would just move on if a service went under cause people like them. Shitty leeches and
their sorry reasoning for stealing their entertainment. Makes me wish the mid 90's on
them zero anime unless you had friends that had VHS tapes and NO internet anime
subs. Bunch of petulant teenagers, asses them all.

Imagine if life had ads though. Youre in the middle of talking to someone and they start advertising PF Changs

Don't care, sites make a tiny fraction of a cent from my viewing ads and despite the hoopla over it, AdBlock users are a minority of traffic. I would have to view thousands of ads to add up to the monthly subscription I pay in Crunchyroll's case. Malware in ads is not uncommon cause ad networks do a really poor job of screening, and I won't even get into some of more annoying practices like auto playing video and grotesque invasions of privacy from tracking.

Isn't that how girl talk works?

" Hey, I finally got that job I wanted!"

"Wow, really? That's great! Are you going to be driving in that new car you got?"

"Yeah, I am."

" Then you should get GEICO, so you can save 15% or more on car insurance!"

"......."

"Oh, and do you know what day it is?"

".........."

For the most part, I don't care if other people use adblock, but sometimes it makes me really sad. For instance, when I see certain YouTubers who make great content and have great personalities basically having fans of their content say "screw you" so that the don't have to watch a 15 second commercial.

Honestly, this is just me personally but I feel like people who use adblock are a tad bit entitled. Maybe it's because i'm "getting older" (or it seems that way on the internet) but I come from the era of television

Story time, back in my day when this thing called "television" was the only way to watch stuff and a thing called "cable" was the only way to watch good stuff, you had to sit through 2 or 3 commercial blocks that were like 3-4 minutes each, yet you still had to pay for cable to do so - and there was hardly anything good on anyway.

Flash forward to now and you can watch almost anything you want for free with roughly the same commercial time and people feel like it's a freakin' personal offense!

Not only that, but many sites offer services where you can pay a lesser amount than we used to and remove the ads anyway!

Jeez, either people are just really impatient, really entitled, or more likely - both.

Sites with ads still get money even if we can't see the ads lolol
Its still technically there. AdBlock just blocks it from our sight.
So using AdBlock ain't hurting nobody here.

Using an ad blocker they might loose only a few cents since 90% of Ads pay the company per click. I am a Youtube partner and that's how it works for me. I get a little money based on how many people view my videos but 90% of what I make is from people clicking on the ads. So if you dont click on the Ads you are just as bad as people who use the add blockers according to you.

I use ad-block then on sites I trust if I remember the ad-blocker exist I will disable it for that site. I go all over the web all the time and blocking ads can help protect your computer or prevent some extreme annoyances. Studies have shown that by politely asking people to turn off ad-block for a site will get most of them to do so. (Stuff like we see your using ad block and we understand. This site is add supported so if you would like to help please consider creating an exception. We promise no pop ups etc.)
