    I guess Crunchroll is an ok way to support anime in the west. I'd rather spend that money buying manga volumes though.

    For me, I think buying or watching anime live (streaming) is good.

    There needs to be a digital download version though. Why stream when you can have high-quality episodes without internet lag. I want to be able to watch without having an internet connection. Not to mention how fansubs are better than official ones in almost every aspect.

    A centred, standardized anime version of Steam is what's required for the industry to work in the west, IMO.

      Even with that I think I'd still torrent and then buy what I really like on dvd and bluray. It sucks that the west has next to no influence on what gets sequels and so on, even the legal methods of obtaining anime here don't give us that.

      Well, I guess importing stuff does. Not sure Watashi ga long title would have gotten an anime so fast if it wasn't for all those anons importing japanese volumes.

      Something like Steam would help the industry. But alas exects want instant $$$ in their home markets rather than splitting profits with middlemen.

      They probably already did cost benefit analysis and figured out that they gain more money with $100 per 6 episode BD sales Japan-only than $30 DVD per 12 episode Dual Audio/Sub releases in the west when everyone is just sucking off fansubs and stuff.

      I'd pay for and download every single One Piece episode if this steam thing for anime becomes a reality anytime soon. I only have 480p episodes till 567 so I'd love to have the best quality ones. :D Of course, all this once I have a job.

      Totally buying all Naruto, One Piece, FMA and Death Note volumes once I get a job.

      I don't really have any plans to buy any manga rn. Just ... not in the japanese animation mood in general.

        Alas, it's likely something that isn't going to be happening any time soon.

          Good, the games are expensive enough without adding anime to the mix

          plus, HULU...Youtube...

          I've... also not really been in an anime mood. Western cartoons/comedies ftw. Or just movies. I loves me some cinema.

          I wish I had more legal ways of getting my hands on Anime. My country offers no legal service whatsoever for series, and many American sites like Hulu and Netflix are not available here. The anime that DO get licensed and subbed almost always suffer the same problem: bad subbing. And with bad, I mean really bad. Nearly every review I read in this one magazine I read, complains about this... more often than not mentioning that there's no way the fansubs will stop if the official translation is done badly and sold quite expensively.

          I'd rather use my money to buy (French) manga. :3

          That's another reason why I don't really watch much Anime and stuff anymore too. Not as much available and I generally feel bad going through illegal means >_>

          There's that. And idk. After watching more and more things like Psych, Criminal Mind, Merlin, etc i've grown to appreciate live action a bit more than cartoons.

          I still like me some good ol' Slice o' Life than Live Action. There's just some genre's that Anime/Manga does really well.

          Slice-of-life has always been a hit or miss for me. In fact I think that goes for most genres.

          I'll probably still love anime by the time I'm 40. I'm just that into it. :p

            I bet it is. Still rewatching Naruto here, having a blast.

            Eating biscuits and drinking hot chocolate, is what I'll be doing when I go and make some hot chocolate and obtain some biscuits.

            I'm currently trying to find last night's Big Bang Theory on YT. Not having much success.

              Streaming Big Bang Theory. No offence but just reading that sentence has given me several varieties of cancer.

              Trying to find TV series on YouTube the day after they've aired sounds pretty difficult. o3o

              They actually posted it on CBS' site. So it's an official stream.

              ...what's wrong with that sentence? What is so cancer-inducing?

                Can't stand that show and streaming makes everything 10x worse. I'm being a drama queen, as usual.
