sup /a/ just got the Funimation Elite free trial and want to watch as much Anime as I can with it. What can you recommend I watch?

My list so far:
1. Maken-Ki! (Two)
2. Black Lagoon
3. Guilty Crown
4. Ikki Tousen
5. Desert Punk

Anything else? I have way to much ecchi on the list already so preferably no more ecchi unless it's god-tier

I really don't see the problem here. The funimation app works fine on my phone, better than most websites so its more convient.

I recommend you download the series you want to watch so you can get them in superior quality.

Streaming: not even once.

I suggest you ask reddit or MAL

You are an idiot who does not understand how streaming works. You are still downloading the file to your computer when you stream, it's just temporary. If it uses less bandwidth than a torrent it's because it's much lower quality so it can be streamed more efficiently.

You are a dipshit.

Yeah streaming bullshit is so much better. Buffer periods, ads, premium accounts, flash player plugin hogging resources, such convenience.

My torrent client is such a hassle, what with being FOSS and all, sometimes it reminds me an update was released which I can install or not install. It takes almost a whole minute to update it. What a pain. It doesn't even have any ads or premium account stuff to harass my email inbox with, it's like they respect my privacy and don't want to make money off me or something.

You can download while watching the rest if every show is 20 min long and a download is on average about 5 min its quite possible.
On illegal sites it is possible to find older stuff but they tend to have even trashier quality than funimation or crunchyroll.

If your buffer is that short it means the video is terrible quality. That or you have a tier 1 internet connection, which I seriously doubt.

It's a combination of good internet (by USA standards anyway) and the fact that it streams at 853x480. It's a cartoon, I don't need 1080p quality.

>bragging about needing adblock just to watch anime
When did I ever brag? And it's not like I installed adblock for the sole purpose of blocking ads when I occasionally stream anime.

>Since you stream you are probably too stupid to know how to check on your processor and where its resources are being spent. Flash plugin is a resource hog, this is indisputable fact.

The fact you need to block ads at all is why streaming is inferior. The fact this needs to be explained to you is embarrassing.
>Or maybe I never noticed it because I have a decent computer
Confirmed for not knowing how to check on your processor. You probably bought a pre-fab machine from Alienware or something. Streamfags, man. Don't even bother to learn the simplest thing about the machines they rely on.
> I don't multitask while trying to watch something m8
Probably because you can't. I can have 3 different anime episodes open in MPC-HC while browsing /a/, running qbittorrent, and prowling niconico without putting a straing on my i5, because I know how to optimize my machine.
>>
How long until I can torrent with my PS3? With CR I lay on my bed and stream my shows on a 60" Samsung in 1080p. Do you really expect me to torrent the show, burn it to a CD/DVD, and play it from that, for every new episode of an anime I want to watch.

I don't even have to get out of bed to do it, I can turn on my TV and PS3 with the remote and controller. I come home from a long day, lay back, and watch high quality anime streaming.

Meanwhile, you faggots stay hunched over your desk, peering into your shitty 14" display from 2" away with headphones on.

Who enjoys their anime more?
