    buying because it's a lot safer and even though it costs more ( ) it's possible to stay in your head longer. if you download it, you might forget what file it is, it could have a virus, it could be illegal, etc.

    i usually buy most of my manga but download alot of anime b/c its so darn expensive. music if i only like one song by a certain band then ill just download that one song intead buying the cd. i dont think downloading is that bad if you use it in moderation.
    Don't let me be.

    I personally like downloading, since when anime are not licensed then it really is no proble,m,however when an anime is licensed, the anime should be bought.

    Around here, i don't see any good places to buy anime, and yeah downloading is cheaper. I downloaded the Inuyasha movie.
