  • Everything you ever wanted to know about fansubs, but were afraid to ask

    This here will be a sort of archive of online sites that provide an in-depth explination of the history of fansubbing, as well as how they are made. Here's the first link, written by an MIT graduate:

    http://web.mit.edu/seantek/www/paper...ss-columns.pdf

    ^ 39 page analysis of fansubing and American anime fandom. does not cover the current trend in digi-subs


    http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~animage...p?page=konshuu

    ^ The Berkly UC anime club website. Lots and lots of intresting articles.

    1. If you have multiple downloads going, does it slow them all down?

    2. I can't get High-Speed at my house, But my aunt has it, I can only make it to her house 1 time a week. Could I start like 10 series, Moviebox Tutuapp download appvalley come back in a week and have them all downloaded?
    I think Multiple downloads are slow down all downloadings, Better thing is download one by one. It depends your device ram speed and internet conection.

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

    (just teasing )

    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.

    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)

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

    It all depends if you want to keep it or not, but you can always burn fansubs to DVD's so you don't have to keep it on a hard drive. DVD's are cheap and hard drives are getting cheaper & cheaper every month(1 TB for around $50!) so storing is not a problem for most.

    Although I think most people just delete the fansubs after they watch them. After all if they want to watch the show again they can just re-download it.
    Thank you very much for the info guys.

    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.
