Nope. I've got a very stable connection 60 down, 4 up, 30ms ping . I just like to have it on hand in case it's ever removed from a service, like in the case of FMA Brotherhood. Netflix removed it for some reason for a few months. Then there's the times I'm not at home to actually use my connection. My shifts at work are split with a few hours in between. It's nice to have stuff already available to fill that time.

Well like I said, I do pay for Netflix, which has a decent amount for something that isn't anime specific. So there's a few studios that get paid by Netflix through my subscription.

I'm not opposed to paying for it, really. I used to buy DVDs all the time. It's just that it's really inconvenient for me to be subscribed to a bunch of different services to watch everything I want to watch. Also, having an actual back up is really important to me, and that's something you just won't get with a streaming site.

I'm assuming you don't have the most stable internet connection hence why you want it on a hard drive?

Yes it's actually still at $7 for me since I was subscribed before they increased the price , but Netlfix also offers more than anime. I love anime and all, but that doesn't mean that it's all I watch.

Pirating is still the easiest thing for me to do. I can just download everything in one batch, then binge watch at my convenience without worrying about being online if I'm out and about on my laptop or worrying about the series being removed from the service.
User avatar #86 - emprex (03/23/2015) [-]
But like I said in my reply to anon its about giving some sort of money to those who actually make the anime so that you are able to download older anime and binge watch them but at the same time look forward to new anime because the will actually be able to afford to carry on making it.

The issue is that Crunchyroll doesnt have half of the anime that I watch. So i pirate while the show is airing then buy merch to support the artists.

Most companies that produce anime make most if not all of their money from the Japanese market, even if more people bought their anime most of the money would go to publishers like Funamation. Even if that where not the case it is unlikely that the animators and writers etc would get paid anymore then the do now.
User avatar #82 - OtisMcWonderful (03/23/2015) [-]
Well for me, I'm not going to pay for more than Netflix. If I can watch it there, great, but a large majority of stuff isn't on Netflix. Because of this, I have to pirate.

Also, it seems like even Crunchyroll is missing stuff. I'm currently working on watching Lucky Star, and I can't find any episodes besides a single OVA on Crunchyroll.
User avatar #83 - emprex (03/23/2015) [-]
But isn't Netlflix at something like $10 a month? The reason Lucky Star isn't on Crunchyroll is because it is licensed by Funimation. For me I've got a year of Crunchyroll but I'm still pirating the one Funimation show I watch, Death Parade. Unfortunately licensing issues is a pain in the ass because its as if the studios want people to subscribe to both Funimation and Crunchyroll

>implying I want anime bad enough to pay for it

Some stuff isn't worth buying, but if you can get it for free, why not check it out?
User avatar #77 - emprex (03/23/2015) [-]
You seem to have made up your mind but I'll say this:
You're depriving animators money making it so they are struggling to make the price of living. A subscription to crunchyroll is £40 a year, that's all pay that and know you're doing something to help someone do their passion and entertain others.
