Both have there pros and cons. However I am interested in what the people of crunchyroll have to say about it. For me I prefer urban environments due to easy access to a wide range of goods and services and public transit I hate driving. The only benefit of a rural area in my eyes is maybe some privacy or more nature. I would rather live in a city and occasionally visit a rural area than live in one.

I live in a suburban environment. It is like a mix of both urban and rural environments. I have access to public transit, roads, and a bunch of services. But it is not as crazily populated like a place like New York. It is not so quiet where you don't have neighbors for about a mile.

So definitely a hybrid of rural and urban; suburban.

I basically chalk up suburban as part of urban although there are some differences. Suburbs tend to be very car dependent and everything is spread out. Personally I find suburbs to contain the worst of urban and rural living not to mention they are very boring.

Suburban for me, I like my internet speeds. I was at my friends house, he had over 10acres to himself, but he used Satellite for everything which sucks.

Urban. Though where I live is a rather old town with history so it doesn't "look" urban. I can walk to pretty much everything.

I live in rural Canada. Population 1000 in my town + the surrounding area when tourists aren't around. I prefer it because I get to be closer to nature. There are a lot of cons, though. Drug and alcoholism problems run rampant here and suicide rates are unusually high. I also like it because the laid back lifestyle is what goes on here. Humble old people and the community helping each other. This is the kind of place where people still live like it's the 90s. Everyone's got old beat up cars and thrift store clothes.

I prefer urban, although rural areas have a certain appeal to them. As someone who's young, I prefer to live my everyday life in an urban environment, but there's a part of me that appreciates the idea of living out in the countryside with acres of land and no human development to disturb the tranquility.

Rural is nice. As long as I have plenty of shade and necessities, like internet and utilities and the local grocery store has everything I want, I'm good. I don't normally go out for entertainment much and prefer being a little more isolated.

The town I used to live in population was 3000 was very peaceful. Internet was good but the thing that would kill you is either you cook different meals or go to one of two restaurants. The last murder in town was way back in 2003, I don't really count suicides or illegals found dead since the only ones affected are themselves. Growing up it wasn't uncommon to see coyotes that were kept as pets but those are rare nowadays.

As for the big cities certainly there more to do but having manners count for so little that people don't wave, hold a door open, and if you drop anything good luck getting it back. I also notice the pay in big cities are a lot less than the rural places for example San Antonio most restaurants pay minimum wage while in the town I was in they paid on average 2 to 3 dollars more. As for safety my first night when I lived in Dallas was nothing but sirens all night long and that was the first time I saw a honest to god hooker. Knocking on my window asking if I wanted a good time, no thanks.

I would choose cities to live in when you're young and rural when you're older. Giving myself 15 more years than build me my dream house and buy a small piece of land. Hopefully by then I could make do with a 40 hr per week job and just enjoy more hobbies.

i prefer rural as it is a lot quieter and isn't busy at all. around my are there might be only be 100+ people. I see urban places to busy and manic. But i have been bought up on a farm so it no wonder i prefer rural.

I'm a city girl. Always have been and probably always will be.

Urban, as I've been living in the city all my life. But I often think that when I have a family, I'd like to move to a suburban area, which is quieter and provides a more "stable" environment.

I'm more suburban. I like the mix of two. You don't have to be completely blow away once you live somewhere else whether is rural or urban later on.
