AP 582 - Where do you get it?

Post by VicMonado » Sun Dec 16, 2018 7:15 pm

What are the avenues you use to watch anime? Are you the traditional sort that uses TV broadcasts and physical media? Do you use streaming platforms and if so, which and why? Perhaps you even use less scrupulous methods (don't worry, I won't tell anyone).

My avenues into Anime are a mixture of physical releases (Blurays and DVDs) and... *ahem*... "unofficial online sources". Televisions broadcasts used to be part of this, but since they don't really show Anime on TV in the UK any more, that isn't really a viable avenue.

This statement is made for the clarification of all listeners of the Internet based audio programme of Anime Pulse LLC, herby referred to as the "Anime Pulse Podcast" or "AP Podcast".

All of the above?

We have subscriptions to Netflix, Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Amazon Prime — and those streaming services seem to satisfy at least 90% of our family needs. Then we also have Netflix DVD (Blu-ray) service for a lot of the physical media needs. AND if we like something good enough, we will purchase it either through iTunes, Amazon or Crunchyroll.

I try not to pirate, and have been 99.9999% successful, but we are _finally_ able to sit down and watch Fate/Stay Night: Heaven’s Feel I only because of a torrent (after more than a year trying to buy a legit copy of the blu-ray that finally came out in September) I got so fed up with the scalpers that I wanted to get a viewing completed ASAP before the second movie arrives to theatres in the US next month. (Seriously, WTF is wrong with Aniplex lately?!?!?)

This question is a very funny coincidence given its timing. (Until this weekend, I haven’t had to torrent in literally years!)
Wherever you go... there you are.

I Try to watch across all platforms: TV to check out dub cast anime, and internet (Netflix mostly). I would like to buy Bluray's/DVD's but they usually cost a lot or they don't put the anime I really like to the medium.

I've been subscribed to Crunchyroll since late 2016 and use it almost exclusively as my one source for currently airing shows (as well as for some older shows). I also tend to pick up three or so series per year on bluray from a certain swedish nerdy bookstore that I'm sure any swedish anime fan will know very well. Physical copies let me watch stuff on the TV screen and it also lets me fill out my ever cramped bookshelf o' nerdy things. I mean, what's the fun in being a nerd if you can't display your nerdy interests in your home?
