I usually just download my anime and manga from whatever sources are available, but If I have enough funds, it is good to properly purchase them.
If i can get the anime subbed when i download, i really don't care. or i just buy it from the store, or get a friend to burn their stuff for me.
This world is corrupt

I am so alone, I got no one to talk to, please help me
It really depends on how much cash I got in my pocket at the time. Or how good the deal on Ebay is. I must admit I am bit of a cheapskate and a good portion of mine is downloaded or streamed.
I really give the thumbs up to those who dish out the cash to obtain a legit collection of anime.
I download more than I buy, buts thats just because my lack of cash flow. Life is expensive especially for a college student. I have learned for right now in my life the internet is my friend when I just don't have the money for my anime need! I prefer the real deal, but my collection right now is a big chunk of downloaded anime. The downloaded anime is just as good as the real deal, the only difference is you didn't pay for it and that hurts the creator of the anime. I apologize to the creators of my favorite animes, but I do buy anime stuff and anime DVDs when I do have the money. After college and after I get my good paying job as an architect I will pay for all my anime with CASH! lol
What I'm watching Right Now:
(If I buy anime, it's the real thing. Starting a collection of pirated stuff just isn't a collection to me) I too collect the real deal because hay it's exspencive but a its not illegal comapred to burning it can be so if cought you can face jail time unless you bur it of a paying site. And b having that collection and knowing i bought it is what makes it so great owning it because of the centamental value and knowing i worked so hard to buy the anime i whanted.
*All the same i will kill you all,Gaara* (yes i made my own siggy
I am a huge collector of things, mainly anime and the figures that come with them. Though i admit that i do download anime that are unliscenced so that I can upload them on another site for others to enjoy and immediatly take them off when they are even near of being liscenced here.
But i always buy the anime when they do come. ^_^
