    Waah. I mean, boo FRICKIN hoo. $150 wouldn't cover the NGE box set + both movies. Bebop box? Try $300+ IF you can find one for sale.

    seriously.. thats just sad.

    you like the anime, yet refuse to support the anime community and the people who brought it to you.
    of course then you have to brag about ripping off the creators of the very shows you seem to enjoy. needless to say.. your kind disgust me to no end.

    how about you actually purchase it legally and help keep new shows coming. is it so hard? </rant>

    great contribution to the thread :slap:

    its not being offended, its stating fact. if you like something you purchase it legally and help support the industry that brings you the product.
    if everyone sat around and stole what they liked, then there would be no reason for the industry to continue to make/license any thing else. :rolleyes:

    i'm not arguing with you on this... that's not my point. it's just amusing to me how offended some people get on this subject. reread your own post, n00bio.

    look under amazons used section, or ebay. both are nothing but bootlegs...

    how would anyone that has no idea about HK bootlegs not think they're real?

    One would hope common sense would prevail. One set is $20, the other is $100.

    jesus, i'm spending almost 150 bucks on video games this month

    [insert list of 25 or so video game bootlegs]

    You work at GameStop. This shouldn't be acceptable to you . All I've done here is change what you're stealing.

    The only time I'll consider buying/downloading a fansub is if said series isn't coming here to the states any time soon. Perfect examples are Kanon (To Heart) and Saikano (She, the Ultimate Weapon). Everything else is legit because that's the only way the money gets back to the right people.

    Look at it this way, do you want to watch Survivor ripoffs for the rest of your life? Because that's the most profitable show on television right now. Vote with your dollar or don't bitch to me when there's nothing else left.

    common sense does prevail, i don't make enough money to put out that much for the american versions.

    I don't pirate that much, i buy music (well almost half of it), i've never pirated a system game (pirated a few pc games). anime is just so damn expensive, i know why is costs so much and God bless those people who pay that much for anime but i just can't afford it.

    And that's why you rent via netflix if you don't have enough coin to buy it outright.
