Not many. Enough, however, to be a law-abiding citizen... except when I'm on the internet.

Sometimes there are things that are difficult, or very expensive to obtain legally. I know my opinion would change if I were an artist or developer, but I think pirating can, in some cases, be a gateway to buying those things you love. Especially if you're considering people that use the "try before buy" method.

Anime fans are one of the biggest groups of pirates in the world.
probably 90% of the people who watch anime pirate it.

I won't pirate anime. First of all I don't know how to haha...and second of all I would rather support the industry.

I used to watch on not legit websites, but that was long time ago before I lived in america because almost everything is region restricted by crunchyroll. Now I only watch in crunchyroll or netflix, although I don't really watch anime that much anymore

In the past I would pirate because companies were so slow to catch on to modern technology. If you wanted a digital copy of something you had to pirate it.

I don't pirate much anymore. There are plenty of ways to get content, and I have money to pay for it.

I will sometimes download shows that I already have legal access to if I'm going to be without internet for awhile. I also have downloaded digital copies of old games I own on disc. Just more convenient.

I cant Torrent if I even wanted to. Back when I lived with my parents, my ISP sent a warning to my dad's email for me trying to Pirate the first Rurouni Kenshin Live Action movie. They actually listed what I downloaded also, so make sure you guys are careful

It's tough to list down any set morals that I follow when my values are in constant fluctuation. However I feel a slight sense of guilt whenever I forget to say my thanks and goodbyes.

I would totally do it. Except laziness and pirating is a lot of effort to find stuff and time to download and the time needed to keep up on calendars and releases, and.... Bleh.

laziness works better for me.\

Honestly though, I'm in an awkward situation now though.

I'm 33 (34 in precisely a week).

I've been watching anime for 20 years now.

I can't find or go back and watch a *LOT* of the shows I have already seen or have even, in the past, owned, because torrents don't exist, everyone's obsessed with new series, and DVD's and VHS don't exist or nigh impossible to find of some of the stuff.

It really sucks.
