I tend to melt the dvds down to a base plastic than inject it straight into my eyelids.

Didn't really follow current anime, just binged and clear anime one after each other. Now I still binge sometimes, but the ~10ish simulcasts are a fair share of my anime consumption.

Due to finding streaming/simulcasts in 2013 the amount I watched skyrocketed, compared to buying disks before.

Way back I used baka-updates to keep tabs on all the anime being subbed by different groups, and their torrent links. Then I'd download what I wanted to watch over a very slow modem connection.

These days it's so convenient with online streaming, I don't miss those days.

How I watched anime back when I was young - Torrent, File Share Servers

How I watch Anime Now - Crunchyroll~
Its so much easier CRing it these days, since most torrents are a rip of the CR or Funi streams; as are most of the illegal streams

These days it's so easy with streaming. I started as a kid with Battle of the Planets and later realized it was actually anime (the Americanized version of Science Ninja Team Gatchaman). From there I got whatever I could on VHS or on TV. Moved to torrents eventually. These days streaming is where it's at, no downloading at all. I still purchase a few DVD's or blurays but most of my viewing is via streaming these days.

Started with edited tv versions. Then it boomed with the internet and blurry releases. Now with streaming like cr & all of the mentioned, I consume anime on a daily basis now with at least ten times the number. Which is growing more everyday.

Started in the 80's with Robotech and raw episodes of Gundam my grandmother recorded off of (I think) a San Jose television station. My dad had a video store that specialized in sci-fi and fantasy, so he started carrying anime in the late 80's, when the first unedited translations came out from Streamline and AnimEigo and the like. Started following Sailor Moon on syndicated TV, then watched Toonami when it started out. Moved away from anime for a few years in the early 2000's, then got back into it with Netflix and cheap box sets at Suncoast/Best Buy. Then online streaming became a thing.

I certainly watch more stuff now than when I started, because there's more out there to watch. Probably average 8-10 series a season, occasionally higher.

Back then, I didn't watch a lot of anime and mainly watched it on DVD. Now, I am watching a lot more shows thanks to streaming. I still watch shows on DVD/Blu-ray but most of the time its streaming.

Not as much as I did back then, though I'm trying to get back into the interest.

I think it was four or five years ago that I began to watch anime as a hobby. It's not my first time seeing an anime series, but it's probably the first time I knew what anime was, so I would call it my 'official first time'. I used to watch four or five shows back to back. After one episode of a series, I would move on to watching another episode of another different series from those four series I selected. I believed then that it gave me an experience similar to watching anime on television, where episodes are broadcast not in a marathon fashion, but one episode per day. I don't know. I'm weird like that.

Anyway, being my first 'official' viewing, I naturally watched a lot of series based on what was popular. FMA Brotherhood, Gurren Lagann, Clannad, and even Hell Girl. I used MAL's "Top Anime List" as a guide to ensure that I would watch the most quality anime back then... yeah. I mean, give me a break, I didn't know how it all works back then. :P

Nowadays, not so much. Not that many anime interest me anymore, except the sequels of series I loved back then like Gintama. I'm not as adventurous as I used to be (actively seeking out the more 'cult' anime like Kino's Journey and Paranoia Agent). I don't know. Guess I just haven't found any anime that peaks my interest as much.

Maybe until the next Madoka come out.

Still the same as when I took watching anime seriously....On a computer/laptop.

I still marathon series. Hasn't changed. I guess the only thing that has changed is that it is hard to find an anime that I haven't seen yet that I would like.
