Who actually buys anime DVD’s?

Ahhh Nagi, Kannagi is one of the series I most want on DVD, but it has yet to be released.

I read Neo’s big fansub article in the new issue, 61, and felt compelled to write something, cos I do download fansubs, yes its illegal, but I, unlike alot of people, buy the series when they’re out. And I only watch anime I know I like, I don’t go downloading everything under the sun, that would be a complete waste of time.

In the past year, less actually, I’ve bought more anime than I ever have before. Online, at conventions, in stores. I like to think I do my part for the anime market. And this is mainly thanks to being able to watch and test out anime using fansubs. Anime like Clannad, Ouran High Host Club, Onegai Twins, Kanon, all anime I bought because of the fansubs I watched. Some series I buy just cos I know I’ll like them, To Heart, Midori Days, I hadn’t seen them before, maybe one episode of Midori Days on a anime preview disc from Newtype or something. Other stuff I bought when I saw it cheap, like Bleach, and, god forbid Naruto…(just tried the first part of the first season, didn’t get through the first disc… Bleach was better, have the first season of that. There are also occasions when I rented anime from the library. Did that with Elfin Lied and few others. Tsukihime I got because I had the first volume in a big-multipack of anime and loved it, mostly volume 1’s in the set.

Am on episode 10/11 now (started watching 11, but fell asleep bought half way through, due to it being almost 4am lol.) Finding Masamune very endearing. It may just be (more…)

Out of the series you picked from the spring anime season, how many are you keeping up with?

Out of the…. large number I thought I’d try, I’m keeping up with…. 9 of them. I haven’t even tried some of the ones I thought I would. Like Tears to Tiara and 07 Ghost. Ones I’ve kinda not kept up with are Pandora Hearts. Think I got to ep 4 of that, and just lost track. I lost track of a couple others, but caught back up. (The ones I’m still watching are below.)
