    um.. yes they are. BUT,

    When an anime comes out in Japan, independent companies use translation programs and other methods to put subtitles onto the anime series.

    They can release these "fansubs" to different regions around the globe. These regions are made so that episodes can be released at different times by big companies in leagal ways. Fansubs are not technically illeagal, but they do become illegal when a big company such as ADV or Geneon LICENCES the anime. Then all fansubs have to stop because its illeagal for anyone to download them.

    This doesn't stop piracy though, so you will find illeagal stuff out there. The safest place you can find leagal stuff is in animesuki. You usually have to download these episodes with bittorrent. For info about that, try searching this forums with the search tool.

    As for direct downloads, its hard to find them and there is not many. So bittorrent is the better way.

    yeah, I know there's more to that, but I was just pointing out the most obvious "good thing" about it

    youth said it already, animesuki is where I go too, because over there not only do they provide links to downloads, but also links to reviews to the series which really helps people like me (ppl who don't wanna waste hard drive space)
