Why would you say anything else besides anime and manga?

Can't speak for everyone, but one of my buddies is anime only because he's only moderately into anime and doesn't want to spend the time hunting for good series while with just anime, there is both much less to pick from, and he thinks it's safe to say that if a series gets picked up as an anime, it must be at least pretty good.

He's not very smart.

What is this elitism? Why? 1080p streaming is a lot easier, safer, and faster than downloading torrents. I don't get your problem with it.

Owen Baker

I stream because I primarily watch on my weekend shifts at work and I can't torrent there. Easier to just stream than download shit to a flash drive that I'll probably forget half the time.

more stream than torrent

It's the encode, you get a worse image quality in streaming services (even if it's '1080p') and if you're watching something that is not HS the difference is bigger.

Why? Why waste time and effort downloading and transferring everything the night before just to gain some e-peen when it's ten times easier to stream in my situation?

Even if I did do that, I'd still be behind on most series since I work on saturday and sunday when a good number of series air, and as I've said, I can't torrent at work.

Give me a single reason how torrenting is better for me, personally, in my specific situation.

the fact that you're watching anime at work tells me you have more pressing matters to atend.

Alright. I can respect that. I don't tend to watch a lot of shows with spectacular visuals, so it probably never occurred to me. For shows I really enjoy, I will download them (or buy them when I feel like my wallet is too heavy), but for day to day watching

I don't care about technical stuff, I just want to watch some cartoons!

I guess it's a mute point for anime, cuz who cares, but my dad was a first wave pirate for my entire childhood, so I was always warned about the dreaded 'letters' from the cable company. I still use put.io whenever I have to torrent anything.

95% of manga are trash while 90% of anime is trash. Its a good rule

deflecting the issue
Security guard at an office building. There is quite literally nothing to do for the shift. My boss has come out and told me that it's okay to watch anime during your shift as long as nothing is happening after I made fun of him for browsing Reddit at work.

You know what you can do while you sleep?
Torrent. You do not have to put any active effort into it. Do not act like this is the most backbreaking shit ever. You're just lazy.

Even if I did do that, I'd still be behind on most series since I work on saturday and sunday when a good number of series air,
There are like five other god damn days in the week to torrent shit. Are you so desperate to shitpost about your new favorite series that you can't wait a couple of days and HAVE to stream?

Give me a single reason how torrenting is better for me, personally, in my specific situation.
I don't fucking know you or your setup.

It looks kinda slightly worse than running off a file That's about it really. And most people reprimanding you for streaming are watching anime on their fucking laptops or shitty monitors, so it's really not like they're any better.

The only people who can really say anything about how others are watching are those watching with perfect color accuracy at a theater with with complete surround sound and the sound is in flac or whatever is the absolute best same for video. Also if you're watching with subtitles acting as a blemish on the picture at the bottom, you're not watching correctly either.

Sup Forums has a LOT of lurkers. I'm not defending the poll but I'm pretty sure more people just read shit than actively participate in threads.

Asspained shitposters who want to piss off Sup Forums. 50-50 odds they're the same ones going "WOW LOOK AT ALL THE STREAMFAGS Sup Forums IS DEAD" while spam-voting it on their phones. Yes, there are people sad enough to do that.

Torrenting happens pretty quickly here, I'm just trying to give examples of what he can do if he thinks it takes SO LONG to torrent.

Lurker ratio is not remotely that high. It's maybe 5x lurker-poster ratio (maybe not even that) and this is 10 or 15-1.

Anime is pure hot garbage now since all the talented writers fucked off and we get shitty originals now.

Now we also have shitty adaptions ruining the manga consistently because these script writers think they know better with thei original crap and all of this on 13 episodes.

Anyone with taste would just only read manga.

Brody Diaz

Tyler Jenkins

Manga Only

Jaxson Myers

I kind of feel this way, but I still want to give Originals a chance. If the choice was there, I'd vote Anime Originals and Manga.

Light Novel adaptations are usually the worst.

Justin Rodriguez

If torrenting gets buttfucked in the future though (I reiterate we rely way, way way too much on nyaa) XDCC will probably be the way to go.

You can also watch an XDCC as it's downloading. So really it's better than both streaming and torrenting. However, many people have connections fast enough that you an pretty much go take a piss and come back and your torrent's done. Shit used to take all night back in the day for 320x240.
