Like the photo above describes it, I have three separate computer monitors simultaneously streaming anime, manga, and hentai! XD Thank god for this new technology era which makes it all possible, oh and a back up generator in case of a blackout. lol Streaming is an art form!!!
I used to stream but there are too many 360p streams and it pissed me off, so I stopped. I download 99% of my anime (bar a few things I have actually bought but those are rare because I can never find what I want).
i used to always download anime but more often then not i buy dvds / blurays now. i'm always slow watching anime so by the time i feel like watching a show it's already entirely released on disc here so i just go with that due to preference. i almost never stream.
What people should do: Download and buy it to support the developers.
What people tell you to do: Download it, streaming it has so many cons compared to this.
What people actually do: Stream it because laziness, some people download it though and are elitest's.
