    Eitherway, I don't buy into the "they cost so much" BS wait till a series comes out as a box set and buy it then...most of the time you can get the series for 40-70 bucks, average 7 DVDs per series and your looking 5-10 bucks a disk. Get a second job or gasp save your money. It isn't that hard.

    Buy or downloading illegal copies really hurts the companies that make them & distribute them and will lead to "good" companies going out of "that" business. Take Geneon USA, they no longer distribute anime in the US, now some great series we were expecting are left up in the air and we might not get them at all. Why? Pirates hurt their sales to the point it wasn't worth being in it to them.



    Think about it, if your a "real" fan then BUY your stuff.
    Yet another valid point as he put it if your a "real" fan then BUY your stuff. This is what's anime is all about and he's got apoint anime is not that costly just do job's to make money and dont waste money on as much junk food or what ever else u spend it on that isn't realy needed,if you only buy the stuff u can't live with out and you save the extra money after it you'll have anough.

    maybe but it still does matter because if stolen or boot-legged anime is boughten and you know about it a.) it is supporting their cause and taking away from the people who worked hard on making it for our enjoyment at a agreeable price and b.) It can cause anime show's to be cancled or shut down due to low funds thus making it harder for those who do pay to get their anime they wanna see on tv. In the end all it does is by quote/unquote "saving"money you are hurting us true anime fan's and its disrespectful to the anime writers and creactor's.

    I don't think anyone should pirate. Its takes away money from the corporation making them. If you like the anime you're watching why would you steal from them? I don't know, maybe its just me but I always thought stealing was wrong.

    I stick with the original.

    Aw yes you my friend understand the ponit that seem's like only us true anime fan's understand. And not only are you stealing from the creactor's and writers but from their family's because when the creactor's and writer's make no money due to their best work being stolen either by people or bootlegged from the internet its money not in there pocket which mean's their family goes with-out. And call me crazzy but i'm pretty sure that is both illegal to do is in-humon.

    Well if you go-over what i said and read it agin you'd notice i said nothing about fan-sub's as far as those go now that you mention it even some of them have un-authorized material's that was not okayed by the creator's but instead it is faked like it is like the dragon ball af look how far that whent(look it on on wikapidia) so dont be so quick to think that because some fake's make a username and clames to be the real deal and says its okayed doesn't make it so......you of all people should know this:P
