Luckily for me, there are places here that import this kind of stuff and put them on shelves.

Unluckily for me, that means they're more expensive.

Having a local import store would be nice. I would guess that there are some in Baltimore, but I'd have to go searching.

0. I think there's a Pier 1 Imports around here somewhere still. I know there used to be at least 5 but then the recession hit and a lot of them disappeared.

There is https://www.daisuke.net

But that's just in America, iirc, and basically is just a small selection of Aniplex owned shows. No Princess Tutu to speak of on there, but there is Lupin III Part II.

Japanese, I'm partially learning because I want to watch Akagi and actually know what I'm watching.

That would be the greatest thing ever. It NEEDS to be a thing.

Unless the episodes were dirt cheap I'd much rather buy physical copies of anime. Although if you could pay for anime as it airs and that money went directly to the people making the shows it would be different.

Streaming is just a no though and paying for streaming is even worse. People should have refused to use services like Netflix and Crunchyroll on principle. Paying for something you can get in better quality for free. Of course if these services can match the quality of hd downloads in the future I could be swayed. Yeah, I know some people would rather not torrent, if I were one of those I would be using one of those lovefilm type services where they send you out films and series for a monthly fee.

Doubt I would ever use an anime streaming service though, even if the quality was true hd. I'm not some super anime hipster but I doubt a lot of the older or more obscure series I like would ever get onto one. Took a look at the Crunchyroll library and it really isn't good. This actually reminds me, I can't remember what the service is called but I think I saw Oreimo on the PS3 Store the other day, was surprised.

A lot of the JP distributors just went with the streaming option because they felt that direct downloads would lead to...what's happening in the industry right now. @_@

Maybe it's because I use netflix but I can't say I quite agree with some of the things you said, Lapras. Torrenting and such takes up a lot of space and it's just easier for me to just watch things on netflix. Especially if it's a spur of a moment think like a movie and so forth. Don't have to go out and rent a movie or anything. Just sit down, turn on the wii, and then pick from whatever selection they have.

It's also gotten me into a few shows that I would never have been able to really catch on the TV or be able to buy from the store. And while I can stream it online many of these things I watch with my sister and sitting down in front of my computer is a pain when we can both sit on a couch and watch it instead. Although it costs $8 a month it's quicker and easier. Also my mom uses netflix from time to time so it compliments that as well.
