That whole community is just a circle jerk of how special little snowflakes you are, making up a "phobia" just because you think certain things look creepy. It's like the whole "OCD" culture where people scream at the top of their lungs just because of some minor inconsistency.

I agree with you about the first part
About the second, I have well over 500 gb left on my drives, I just prefer not to torrent shit. I don't kid myself, I know streaming doesn't support the creators any more than torrenting does, I just...prefer not to torrent. So far it's worked out for me, and I haven't really noticed any noteworthy reduction in graphical quality compared to the anime I actually own on DVD and Blu-Ray.

No idea what you were downloading but it's not just visual quality that comes into play. 100% of the time a stream will have worse sound quality than a BD download, it's not even a debate. Then there's the ability to tweak everything, most people don't, but I use a bunch of codecs that are great to mess around with and improved my viewing quality of anything by quite a bit.
I don't see a reason to be against torrenting, just use nyaa www.nyaa.se and your chances of getting a fake torrent or whatever just plummeted to 0, it's likely the most reliable place to download anime/manga.

What's funny is, no matter how mad that guy gets, he still can't force anyone to give a shit. Think I'm an idiot? Cool. Think I'm stupid for settling for less? Great, man. I'm so proud of you. I mean, of all the things to get worked up over.
1)I'm at a university, using campus internet. All internet activity is monitored and recorded. They notice that I'm taking up more than my allotted bandwidth by downloading videos, it's pretty easy to double check and see that I've been torrenting. Which gets me kicked the fuck out of school, as well as in legal trouble. So it would end up being cheaper to just buy every single fucking overpriced episode of every anime I want to watch than torrent.
2) Torrents are fucking sketchy shit, yo. I mean, a good virus scanner can catch 99.99% of bad shit, but there's still a risk involved, and it ain't worth it.
Those are both excuses. The first one is actually legit, but even when I leave college I won't torrent, just because I legit don't give a fuck if I could maybe have slightly better sound and video quality in my anime. To be honest, with anything other than video game graphics, I'm never gonna give a fuck about those differences, unless it's hella shitty, in which case I go to a different site. Though crunchyroll has never let me down in that regard.
Well, fuck. I actually ended up getting a little worked up myself. The moral is this: if you feel a compulsive need to tell other people how to enjoy their entertainment, which in no way affects you, like that guy...you're kinda sad. Especially because no one is really gonna listen or care about your fascinating philosophy. I don't think you seem like the guy that made that, though.
So you keep downloading, I'll keep streaming, and let's neither of us give a fuck about what the other is doing, because in the end, it just doesn't matter. K?

No idea why you're angry at me for, I'm just bringing up a point.
Here's some trivia; downloading a video uses the same, if not less, amount of data as streaming it. Downloading torrents is not illegal and won't get you kicked out of school, at least where I live anyway, and if it is you can just use a seedbox.
>torrents are sketchy
Which is why you don't use some random shitty obscure torrent website to download your shit. Only use piratebay for shit like games or music. Nyaa is heavily moderated and extremely strict, bakabt contains only licensed anime/manga, meaning it is legal anywhere .
If you do stream, crunchyroll is literally the worst place to do it, they have less than 200 series in their library, it only contains licensed content, similar to bakabt except a much, much smaller variety, though anywhere else is hard to get above 480p.
Honestly the way you watch your chinese cartoons doesn't affect me in the slightest and I could care less, I didn't make the image, and whoever did was directing it at autists who are calling streaming 'equal' to downloading, which whether I care, you care, or anyone cares, is wrong. You just seemed rather uninformed on the topic and I decided to shed some light on it.

Dude, I tried to clarify that I wasn't angry at you, just sort of rustled by the dude who made tat pic for trying to tell others how to have fun.
A'ight, so we are specifically not allowed to download shit we ain't got the right to be downloading. Now, I don't care how ya slice it, but that includes movies, music, etc that we didn't pay for. At least, those are the terms we were given, like I said.
I've found all of the anime I've ever wanted to watch on crunchyroll. They have the 3 or 4 series that I actually watch, so I dinna care whether they also have 200 other series that I'll never watch or 200000 other series that I will never watch.
So I appreciate you trying to help. That's cool, man. I just really recommend you reread that pic you posted, as the entire middle paragraph is specifically dedicated to telling people that they don't have the right to not care if they're watching lower quality shit. He acts like every person who streams is somehow doing him personal harm by watching something in slightly less than perfect quality. Which is kinda silly and kinda sad. I wouldn't have had my jimmies rustled at all if it wasn't for that paragraph of pure dickshittery.

"like that guy...you're kinda sad." cuts deep man
The picture stems from annoying shitbags constantly positing images of trashy 480p streamcaps with a watermark, loadbar and subs in the middle of the screen then going around saying that streaming is the same thing as downloading. it's not even close. shit gets extremely annoying after a while, they are as bad as dubfags.
In the end you watched the same shit I did, I just enjoyed it a lot more because of the gap in quality between the two.
#99 - amata (02/24/2014) [-]
Yeah, man. Sorry if I worded that in a dickish way. It was late, I should have been asleep hours ago, so yeah-that was my bad. I get where you're coming from, I get why those people would annoy you. And yeah, if I based my enjoyment of an anime on the video/audio quality of it, I guess that would mean that you enjoyed it more. I just don't. I base my enjoyment on the story, not the packaging. We're just different in that regard. but please don't try to tell me how much I enjoy my anime, k? That's something you really have no real way of knowing.
#77 - blargtastic (02/24/2014) [-]
I doubt you enjoyed it more as that is entirely an opinion. This arguement is stupid and you both need to cut it as it's annoying as hell to see. I watch things streamed because I personally don't give a flying fuck about the quality, I just want the story. If by chance, I want to post something somewhere, then I'll find a higher resolution version; however, if it's just for personal purposes, then the lower quality really doesn't bother us.
Let us have our coffee the way we like it, and you can have it the way you like it. End of discussion.

wait... the 3rd arc is kirito running around beating people up with a sword in a game filled with guns while looking like a girl and befriending a girl that needs some therapy. While the police entrusted a kid to investigate a series of murders. The 4th arc was the emotional stuff in which they run around helping a disabled girl fulfill her dying wish while kirito's gf deals with her home life. I did not like those arcs because it really does feel like they just want to keep on adding more into the series.
#107 - adunsaveme (02/22/2014) [-]
I thought it was a decent enough idea. That at least was good.
But the execution of the whole thing was just pathetic.
You've got this whole harem revolving around the main character (a harem which the fanboys refuse to admit exists), you've got generic and forgettable characters, there's a tryhard attempt at being touchy-feely every other episode (meaning it tries too frigging hard, by killing off people you've had no chance to get attached to), and the main character has the depth of a fucking teaspoon while picking up bitches like a metro tram.
Not to mention it's not friendly to people watching it. It has side story before main story. It skips a lot of shit around and has the characters doing plenty of bullshit without telling you why, and expects you to understand their motives and their actions right from the get-go.
And Asuna is a cunt. She starts off as this relatively generic, almost quite not fully tsundere battle chick, strong-leader type, high ranking member of a guild and what fucking not, and then she devolves into a generic damsel-in-distress lovebird.
And what was the deal with that kid? You know her for all of, what was it, three fucking episodes? Then she's gone and it's so fucking sad but hey, guess what, we're going to bring her back in the second arc so there was never any need to feel like you lost a meaningful character, because NOTHING WAS LOST.
I could go on. But I probably shouldn't.
