    Legal download of anime

    OK i had a search and could not find any thread on this topic..but i was wondering..if iTunes and such legal music downloads are going well in both us and uk, would people here paay for a legal download of anime

    i know i sure as hell would, becuse it takes forever to get the dvd's out here, so i end up dowloading them untill i can. but its vicious circle time as if everony here did that, there would be no market, so they will never get released. If a legal download sight existed for anime, im just wondering how many other people would you it...and if you think it would work.

    I'd probably pay to dl anime... Depending on the price... cause i could just buy the series... and have it on dvd. But ye i think that'd be cool... as long as it didn't cost too much.

    I would also probably pay to download anime, but if it cost as much as the DVD's, I would rather wait for the DVD's to be released. DVD's themselves cost quite a lot here. It's about $40 for just 3 episodes of a good series.

    I download anime, watch anime,
    download more anime, watch more anime,
    and download anime soundtracks because I have no life.

    I'd love to download anime at high speeds leagaly. Of course, there would be an upped price mainly because of the "its not in stores yet" excuse. But I would certainly pay more for unrealeased dvd episodes. (ones that are the same resolution as the dvd...)

    As for the "not so leagal" copies.. I say they shoud be burned in a vat of pudding..WITH BROCCOLI!!

    well, lets say you were able to download DVD quality anime. Lets say each anime is around 4 gigs... bandwidth cost would be astronomical for the host. I wonder what kind of price that would reflect per anime

    Let's just say it's not DVD quality.
    +/- 200 MB For an episode is good enough for me...

    price wise its not too bad on itune..i got the hole album for less than if i had ordered it..i think it was like 80pence per song.
    Hassan - yeah i was kinda thinking ~200mb per ep not dvd quality, but more than adiquate...and at a reasonable cost (again drawing comparison with iTunes)
    and even if it was a bit...i cant see how it would be any worse for £120 for 26eps...£20 per dvd..so that what 5 episodes/4....meaning just underr £4 per episode at normal rate.
