Curnchyroll XD yeahhhhh I use a lot of questionable places, but I try to avoid Crunchyroll since they are known for adding WAY more swearing then any other legal sub spot, like I had tried out kimi ni  todoke a long time ago on Crunchyroll and had to stop due to the amount on language, but I found a different subbed and it never had those words!!!!!

*cough ehem*  Might I add some points to this convo. As someone who understands conversational Japanese at a fluent level, Crunchyroll is fairly accurate with the exception of where US copyright won't allow. Far more so than many fan-subs. As a second point, Crunchyroll is legal, whereas other sites (KissAnime and other fan sites) are Illegal, meaning you don't support the making of anime at all. Your favorite shows can't get season 2 because they don't have enough viewers....because many of the viewers and fan do so off the radar. (Also you can get virus from other sites, be careful)

From what I've heard Crunchyroll barely helps the anime industry, it only helps with the licensing of anime outside of Japan. Still a good thing, but not quite what they make it sound like.

Perhaps, but still very important. Follow the law, kiddos.

Don't forget guys that there are also moral implications to illegally watching anime. For every bootleg episode you watch, you're stealing money from the creators that made it. I don't mean to get up on a soap box, but it's true. Kitsy and I used to watch anime on fandub sites all the time, until we realized what we were doing was wrong and put an end to it. I think we both can live with missing some episodes of detective conan if it means having a clear conscience.

"Missing a few episodes" you mean that those episodes aren't even available legally? I agree with using the legal means if possible, but if you can't even do it legally where's the harm in doing it in a morally gray area?

@Star: Well, detective conan is complicated compared to most anime, because only the first few seasons were brought to the west, and since it's kinda obscure, Crunchyroll didn't pick it up until recently, so litterally hundreds of episodes are missing out there. The only way to watch them is thru fandubs. You may have a point there...

Perhaps, but as Christians our response should always be "What is the best option" instead of "Well it's not that bad". If you can't do it legally, then it doesn't give you a free pass to do so illegally. Not saying these things in judgment or condemnation upon anyone, but rather urging the members here to understand the danger of gray areas.

I don't know the ins and outs of international copyright law (nor do I want to; it seems like a dreadful topic), but I do know this: it's good to support the artists you care about. When you like their work, it's good to support them however you can. That's what I try to do with anime, and that's what I try to do with our people here, like Inkhana, Sparkle Foxie, etc. As for legal gray areas, well... ethical quandaries aside, it's imprudent to engage in things like "piracy." That alone should be good enough reason to avoid it.
Be not overly righteous, and do not make yourself too wise.
Why should you destroy yourself?
