    POLL: Buying anime after watching fansubs: how are we doing?

    I'm big on buying series that I like after watching the fansubs. I was just wondering how much other people are doing the same thing. I'm not really meaning to start a debate over how wrong or right it is.

    I've only recently been introduced to fansubs and the accuracy of the translation astounded me. Before that I always purchased or recorded off the tv. If I found a fansub I liked enough to watch twice I would buy it, if it was availible. Since the only downloads I have watched so far aren't availible in the states (hence the download) it might take awhile though.

    Oh yeah, feel free to post any shows you bought explicitly due to fansubs. This is why manyfansubbing groups claim to be in business after all, exposing shows that otherwise might not get attention.

    The shows I've gotten because I saw them fansubbed are:
    Gundam SEED
    Chrono Crusade
    Shingetsuan Tsukihime
    .hack//SIGN
    08th MS Team
    Last EXILE

    One show I won't get BECAUSE I saw it fansubbed is Madlax. I just didn't like it once everything was revealed.

    I always buy DVDs and hardly ever download Fansubs.
    But... my friend downloads them for me, and while I've yet to buy alot of the anime I've watched fansubbed, I want too. The only reason I haven't bought them is because I just can't physically buy them, because non are released on DVD in my country (Australia)

    Anyway. Things I watched fansubbed:

    Gravitation
    Yami no Matsuei
    Full Metal Alchemist
    Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex
    Rurouni Kenshin OVA 1
    Elfen Lied
    Wolfs Rain
    X TV

    Out of the above list, I've only bought Wolfs Rain, XTV, GITS SAC and Rurouni Kenshin OVA 1 on DVD. The others (excluding FMA which I'm buying when the boxset comes out) I haven't brought yet.

    So yeah I owe alot to fansubs, not only did they introduce me to three of my favourite anime series (Gravitation, Yami no Matsuei, XTV) but I've futher supported the original creators of all three anime by buying the manga versions of all three.
