I'll drive down to Best Buy any opportunity I have (which isn't often at all). Going to Best Buy is kind of exciting for me; I love walking through their tiny anime selection, trying to decide between Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood and Tetsuwan Birdy Decode.
However, as much as I love to buy DVDs, I've never once thought while buying one, "wow, now I can sustain the anime industry! Wooo! Go Funimation!" I don't buy DVDs for that reason.
So why do I buy anime DVDs? Simply torrenting them
One day when I run out of money to buy all these DVDs, I'm not going to think "drat! I really need to keep sustaining the industry! Here, let me scrape together what little money I have so that I can buy that $20 DVD."
I'll buy it because I want it, and I'm most certainly not going to preach to other people (presumably ppl without the money to buy expensive DVDs) about how they should support the industry. Odds are they don't really care, and their probably just fine with the
Anyway, I hope you enjoy my rambling.
So, do you like buying anime DVDs? If so, why do you buy them, and what do you think of all this "sustain the industry" stuff?
