Discussion How do you watch anime?

Torrenting was always too unreliable for me since the animes I do watch are usually old enough to not have anyone seeding them anymore.
Oh god I know what you mean. Whenever I wanted to download an anime that hasn't recently aired or wasn't popular it was so freaking hard to find a seeded torrent. For example, when I wanted to watch Love Lab I had to scour the internet for like an hour until I found fansubbed torrents that were seeded. I had to download every episode individually and it took hours because there was only one seed for most of them.
I mostly watch it sometimes on twitch. Sometimes vaughnlive and Tubi TV.
ngl I'm suprised anime streams would even be allowed on twitch. I wold think that all it would take is for an anime girl's belly button to be shown for the channel to get permanently suspended. It's good they're allowed though, something like that probably has a more community aspect to it than watching by yourself.

Piret Streams are also unreliable to be honest. If you find a torrent it's worth it I'd say. And https://nyaa.si/ almost never disappoints me in terms of anime seeding.

Like anyone with a brain, I torrent away my chinese cartoons. Unfortunately, I'm still too dumb to go deeper than Nyaa and also use MPC-HC like if it was 2013.
I'll change to a mpv-based player once I change computers though, even if I don't watch anime as much as I used to.

Not really. You find a site that has the anime you want to watch, get an adblock, and your good to go. Torrenting is better than streaming when it comes to watching seasonals that are currently airing. If you want to watch anything older than a year than good luck. I tried to torrenting Bakemonogatari about a year ago on nyaa.si and while you can get results on finding it, finding one that has anyone seeding it now is a massive pain(or it has barely anyone seeding it so it takes hours to download a single episode). Why go through all that trouble when I can just load up a site that I know is reliable and just start watching?

I try to find a streaming site then I watch the thing all in one go. Like I spend around 6 hours straight watching if it's 12 eps and 12 hours if it's 24 eps. If it's an anime I really liked and which I think I will rewatch in the future I download it.

I mainly torrent, but I stream them if the series either has enough episodes to fuck up either of my computers' space, or if I'm extremely lazy.

I don't feel the need to watch as it's released, so I wait for the season to end and download a BR rip version of the full anime, usually it has better quality (sometime even added or remade stuff) and non retarded subs (at least I can choose them).

Right now I am watching anime by torrents from sites like [Cat noise] and reading manga through HakuNeko (PC) and Tachiyomi (Phone). I used to watch anime on streaming sites like KissAnime for 3-4 years but then I was sick and tired of all the pop ups and buffering and even background malware/adware downloads (that my Anti Virus blocked thank god).

I would like to download more anime. Or Torrent if you call it. I found out that Fate Kaleid Prism Illya 2wei DVD that I bought from Sentai Filmworks doesn't have the scene where Illya and Chloe make out in the hot bath and boy was I fuming. I would like to torrent that and the rest of 3rei. What sites can I go to for that?

Well, thanks for letting me know about that, as I was planning to purchase the BDs of that series at some point in the future.

Censorship is such fucking cringe. :hana-disgust:

Well a lot of streaming sites you get error messages for it being removed I feel. But maybe you have better luck than me.

Edit: Just for the hell of it I took a look around and found that series on PB https://pirate-bays.net/search?q=Bakemonogatari with 15 seeders. Probably not of interest but just to make a point.

Forgot to add. Two specials are missing in the Fate Kaleid Prism Illya 2wei DVD. They only have three of the five. Just checked.

And that's why piracy WILL NEVER go away. When they actively are censoring/cutting out content/making hilariously bad translations and then charge several ten if not hundreds of dollars for censored shit while 7 seas has the superior versions and THEY ARE FREE, of course anyone with common sense will spend a fraction of that money for a good VPN and then torrent the stuff.
