    Usually.

    I like to archive shows I enjoy a good bit though personally, and I get OCD about keeping any and every old OVA even if they suck or not, since those are the harder ones to find off and on. Lately though I often find myself redownloading better releases of older shows, whether it's an upgrade from VHS rips to DVD rips, or just a better group... it's been happening a lot lately, lol. Not that I'm complaining, a good excuse for me to rewatch that stuff.

    The timing on it is always funny though. I watch Votoms, few months later GP releases super HQ releases of it. Same deal with Tekkeman Blade. Then Kimagure Orange Road. etc etc etc, lol.

      uTorrent is just a torrent program by the way, lol.

        Kinda like owning it but just on a hard disc instead of DVD or Bluray?
        I keep my illegal downloads of fansubs and english dubs on my External Hard Drive, but only because my mom's computer does not have a DVD Drive/Burner.

        Which means I usually do have to delete anime after I watch it, so I always have some free space left.

        (not to mention I feel guilty for downloading anime illegally)

        • BTW, disks arent really 'forever' either, they get scatched/damaged and even affected by temperature over time.

          I archive my favorite anime on an external. I do this less now though, as i plan to buy anything i really enjoy when it is released (if price is reasonable). I used to save everything but quickly realized that takes too much space and most shows dont really have a rewatch value.

          • How much cash do these subbers make, if any? I am sure it has been asked in this thread somewhere, but forgive my laziness!

              Pretty much no money at all. Some do have donations, but I think it's usually just to pay for servers and raws and stuff.

                At least that's what they say the donations are used for .
