I remember the days when most of what we got was dubbed for syndication in the USA. Then, we had the boom in the 1980s. I remember sitting in a convention while I guy live translated an un-subbed episode of Outlanders. I was thinking he was joking, then I later found out it was close to spot on (making it even funnier). To be honest, I miss discovering anime I hadn't seen before. But, I am glad that I can now get most of it legally.

Having just started watching and exploring anime seriously last year, the amount of past anime I want to see is huge, so it's worth it to me to be subscribed to both CR and Funimation at once. Then there's a third streaming subscription site that offers a fair number of popular shows that aren't on either - http://www.theanimenetwork.com/

But I could list all the shows I want to see that aren't available to legally stream anywhere. It's a lot, about a third of all. Currently airing shows are almost all covered, and the overall situation is generally getting better all the time, but we're not at utopia yet.

Regarding the comment about CR and Funi having bad customer service, my own experiences with both have been great - impressively prompt and helpful.

I like being a hipster. However it's also frustrating when others will never know how great Milky Holmes TD or Aggressive Retsuko are


Yes Milky Holmes is cool but good new / more is on the way

Tantei Opera Milky Holmes 5 (Detective Opera Milky Holmes 5 )

I kind of understand this, from another example of technology changing things. I loved digging through used bookstores to find gems no one else had found, or to find that one book I'd been looking for for years. Now I can find anything online in minutes, and it's much less gratifying even if I can find more, cheaper, faster. And all the independent used book stores I used to love have closed so I can't even go there to browse.

It's easier now, but easier isn't always the most fun.

If a show is available legally I will gladdly pay my subscription fee to watch it. I've got 4 different memberships running right now

However that said. If there is a show I want to watch, that nobody picked up. I am not going to let that stop me.
