Subject: Sources for Anime
[quick quote] [quote]

Ok so I'm probably not the only one who hears someone mention an Anime series that I haven't watched before, and have no legit way of buying (too poor, its not out in America, what have you).

That being said there are plenty of ways to get anime and I thinks the more sources you have the better chance of success. So I think for everyones sake we should try and list all our sources for Anime in all forms: torrents downloads, streaming ect.

I'll start off with what I know:

Torrents:

tokyotosho torrents,torrents, and oh yeaaah more torrents. its got everything from single episodes to full season batches, and even the more creepy stuff >_>. On the good (or bad side) its all just listed by file type and file name. So if you don't know what your looking for, its not the site to go. however if you don't want to visit 5 different subs groups looking for just one series its a great search site.

Streaming:

Crunchyhahahah just messing with ya.

AnimeSeasons They have craploads both old and new and ranking to help you get an idea of whats popular (take it with a grain of salt)


Downloads:

tehparadox
Frankly This site has been getting worse and worse with annoying adds. And most of its lnks are Rapidshitz, but if it has a series it will all be there, OST's DVD extra's the whole deal.  My friend who showed me the site, also told me about Jdownloader a prgram made just to deal with hosting sites like rapid share megaupload and all those.

Best anime torrent site I know of: http://www.bakabt.com (formerly known as Boxtorrents)

Always a ton of seeders. They don't have stuff licensed by Funimation or ADV though. Also, what's wrong with Crunchyroll? I hear they get a lot of hate, but I'm not sure why. I know they used to be sketchy, but now they're 100% legit, working with anime companies (plus, how else are you going to get Time of Eve :P).

I torrent stuff, but I still always buy the stuff I like. RightStuf and eBay are the way to go. Pretty easy to get entire 26-episode series for around $30 (or less) these days.

Tokyosho is all you really need (lest hunting for really old series)

If you like a site that tracks personal preferences a bit more, try Baka-updates
( anime: http://www.baka-updates.com/releases )
( manga: http://www.mangaupdates.com/releases.html )

Boxtorrents is always sketchy and always will be, it's a place far more suited for getting H than anime. I use it as a last resort for finding slightly old series (since box removes all the series that sent out Cease&Desist warnings)
But yes, they do have good seeder ratios.

Animesuki is ANCIENT and doesn't logs half the stuff out there.

I use AnimeSuki a ton for following new/unlicensed shows. It's great for that. I've been using BakaBT for a few months now, and the download rates are always the best (and I'm not into hentai or any of that crap either). I don't know what's supposed to be "sketchy" about it. I know the previous owner was withholding donations (and keeping more of the $$$ than he neeeded), but they have since transferred site ownership, refunded the donators, and are now only accepting lower amounts, just enough to cover the "seedboxes." Seems like a pretty decent torrenting community to me.

Tokyosho and baka-updates look pretty sweet though.

Ever since discovering how awesome RSS feeds are in combination with a bittorrent client, I've been automatically downloading everything (past the first episode, lol).

In fact, that's the one thing keeping me on Azureus, if another BT client had a decent RSS plugin that supported regular expressions I could be free of the unholy java behemoth once and for all.

Baka-Updates unfortunately stopped working with it when they switched to Feedproxy.  The URLs in the feed are valid (and work when copy/pasted into firefox) but for whatever reason Azureus just gets 404s.  Which is a shame because they had a much more regex friendly title format with the group name at the beginning.  I could just leave off nonsense like version number and it would just pick it all up.

AnimeSuki and tokyotosho's feeds get the job done though, even with less desirable title formats.

Either way it's awesome to wake up and discover that now I have the next episode of everything I'm watching.

I use Tokyotosho all the time, and it has failed me very little.  As for direct downloads, I usually don't do those anymore b/c I find torrents are better overall.

Also, as for crunchyroll, I feel like the service they're providing is a good one.

Hm... torrent in conjunction with RSS... I never thought of doing that.

I need updated sauces.

For me, it has only been Crunchyroll and nyaatorrents lately.  Oh I think I used something like anime season to watch C.

I'll have to contest that. If you're looking for things out of the ordinary like older stuff, niche materials, etc. you'll need other sources.

I jest, I jest.  I have gone out of the way to use other sources as well.  A lot of things are available on those sites though.

I pretty much use tokyotosho and google. I'm a google master.

I also use national-anime.com but it's five bucks a month but this dude has terabytes of stuff on his server including super old stuff so I don't mind being scammed, it's more of a convenience thing really. Direct downloads of goofy shit from the 70's-80's is totally worth it.

I still highly recommend combining an RSS feed (like the ones provided by Tokyo Toshokan, Animesuki, etc.) with a BitTorrent client that has an RSS downloader.  As previously mentioned, I'm still stuck on Azureus just because its RSS downloader supports regular expression matching and I haven't found another decent client with that available.

This is mainly for people that leave their computers on 24/7 as I do (or at least overnight, when most fansubs tend to be released), but if you do that, it's totally awesome to wake up and find that you're seeding stuff.

Also, wallpapers...
