So I follow a fellow YouTuber named Mother's Basement who is a huge anime fan that does a lot of analysis on anime. CR recently asked him to make a CR sponsored video and I came across this hypocrite in the comment section.

He starts out saying that he torrents, complain's about the quality of torrents, and get's into arguments with other commenters saying that you should buy DVD/BD to support the industry. LOL

I don't normally do this but this guy was making such a fool of himself I couldn't help but post this here and let y'all see for yourself. Moral of this post is if you truly love the anime industry and truly do support it, don't torrent or pirate. Don't be fool like this guy.

For those who think I'm trolling or don't think this is real. Scroll down and you should find the comments.

Guess he doesn't understand either that downloading and torrenting anime is illegal.

No way would I ever buy an imported Blu-ray for any show. Those are like $100 for 3 or 4 episodes I would go broke just buying one season for one show. I think I am doing fine supporting the industry by paying for Crunchyroll and buying the Blu-ray seasons of the shows I like that cost around $60 for 12/13/24/26 episodes.

This guy is an idiot. The quality we get here and Funi is the same as BlueRay quality. I know for a fact that the quality does not go down on streaming site like this.

I agree with this. You have no proof that this youtuber's account actually does what he says. While I agree that pirating is illegal and that it should be avoided this comment thread you posted proves nothing. It could be a troll post.

Assuming this is real, that's not how trades work. Buying a BluRay copy of Gurren Lagann doesn't mean Trigger has to spend more money on Gurren Lagann stuff, or even things similar to Gurren Lagann. My payment funds whatever they budget for. Consumers don't literally have sovereignty over producers.
