    Youtube or...

    I was wondering should i watch anime on youtube or through that other way that doesn't involve paying.(I'm not sure whether I can say it. Better safe than sorry.) I have an external hard drive of 320GB.(Well at least that's what it said on the box. It's really only 298. They should've just said 300.)I'm wondering because I find no reason to uselessly fill up my hard drive. The other reason being that I prefer to watch anime in english; Youtube mostly has subs

    P.S. What's the difference between OVA and OAV? Also does one mean a sequel or the first series in a show?

    Personally, I wouldn't get into the habit of depending on YouTube for your Anime fix, as there either going to have to crack down on video postings, or start being subjected to massive law suits...

    If you want to watch Anime with a English sound track for free, your only legitimate source is to have cable and watch the programs on Cartoon Network, or one of the other premium Anime channels. Otherwise, you have to do what everyone else should do, purchase the DVDs and encourage the dometic industry to purchase and dub more Anime series...

    One of the issues with the Anime distributors in the US is that sales of DVDs have stopped growing, and in some cases, have actually shrunk. This is the primary reason why your not seeing as many new series being licensed for US dubbing and distribution then it was just a few years ago. Those Internet groups that are distributing copies of DVD rips of the English dubs no doubt enjoy the knowledge that their killing off the industry that produces the products that they love...

    Yeah I've noticed that liscenced anime is quickly reported and removed. But they don't remove it if it is broken up into parts.

    Means hentai. Anime put out on DVD and whatever first, not TV/movie.

    I'm still not clear. Which one is hentai? Tenchi Muyo had sequels that were called OVA. I was interested in watching Happy Leson but with all the OVA's + OAV's I'm not sure where to start.

    You took me seriously. I was pointing out that a lot of hentai are OVAs.

    OVA=OAV.

    If you don't know where to start, check Anime News Network. They'll show which are prequals/sequals/adaptations/etc. The even have pages that explain a great amount of anime related terms are.
