    For me, if I like the Anime Series, I would buy it just for the pleasure of owning it and watching it whenever I want. I don't know. I sound possessive. :S

    I buy a lot of things that I watch fansubs, it's how I know what's good to buy, and since I prefer dubs to subs it makes the purchase much more worthwhile

    Shows I've watched subbed and bought dubbed:

    Chobits
    Great Teacher Onizuka
    Martian Successor Nadesico
    Nadesico: Prince of Darkness (movie)
    Mezzo DSA
    Mezzo Forte
    Midori Days
    Ranma 1/2 (yes all of it)
    Ranma 1/2 OVA's
    Vandread
    Vandread: The Second Stage
    Scrapped Princess
    Elfen Lied (on preorder)
    Cowboy Bebop: Knockin' on Heaven's Door
    Neon Genesis Evangelion

    So yeah, the GREAT majority of anime I buy is what I've seen fan-subbed.

    Are you serious?! Ranma 1/2 has one hell lot of episodes! That must have cost a hell lot of cash! I love Ranma 1/2 but I've never attempted to buy the whole series. I guess money is an obstacle when coming to owning your favourite Anime. :]

    For Myself, fan Sub is a way to not spoil my money out. If I like a serie, I'll buy it. But I will never (with a few exeption, as for a great review or an advise from friends) buy a serie without having at last saw 2 to 5 ep. I am the materialist style. It is like buying something unusefull.

    Actually, I have seen a lot and a lot of fansubed serie. around 175 serie complete. 80% of them are liked by the mighty me .... And YES, I'll buy them on DVD(only if they are at reach...>_<) Poor me, A lot of money to go. But at least, DVD allow me to share them with friend that only know Hentai as japanimation.... .

    I only have 2 serie in owning progress,

    Ghost in the shell SAC & Fullmetal Panic. But don't worrie. I'm quiting Smoking, so I am having a goal. LOT OV ANIME
    Coming soon.........

    Yeah well I uhh kinda bought *cough*hong kong bootlegs*cough* for every season except the OVA's. Eh heh... Legits would have been a hell of an obstacle for me as well. One of the few shows I don't own the legit domestic release of.
