>mfw there are people who actually stream anime
>mfw people are reacting to this in 2011 + 3
>mfw there are people who actually watch code geass
You know how fast internet speeds are in some countries?
I have a friend who downloads his anime and watches it in Windows Media Player.
It's the best way to test a series without having to waste HDD space and waiting for a download to finish.
I exclusively stream anime and I'm proud of it.
Proud. Of. It.
>my internet is bad so I'll stream
>there exist people retarded enough to think this is a good idea
The mechanism of streaming relies on high bandwidth and stable connections, because you are literally downloading the show as you watch it. Depending on how good the streaming player is, (and they are all crap compared to even VLC) any hiccups or skipping can cause rebufferring and redownloading.
Torrenting is actually the superior way to get files over crap internet as it was designed for this shit.
-does well with low transfer rates
-downloads small pieces of the files so service interruptions, lost packets, etc are no problem
-verifies chunks as they download so corrupt parts do not force as much redownloading
-can be left on weak connections to download over long periods of time, unlike streaming players which dump the cache and where some cannot resume interrupted downloads
-streamed anime has low compression so you actually download MORE for the same quality equivalent through any other method of downloading
> streamed anime has low compression so you actually download MORE for the same quality equivalent through any other method of downloading
>>mfw there are people who actually are surprised that people watch code geass
>mfw there are people who actually read manga online
>There are people without autism
If only subbing groups didn't make every episode of everything 200MB+ for 480p shit.
Some of us have bandwith caps, you faggot.
kissanime is good.
>waste HDD space
If you have so little HDD space that you need to conserve it, it's time to move back to the first world
>mfw there are people on /a/ who haven't seen Code Geass
What kind of third world hell-hole do you live in?
I streamed for 5 years+. Only now am I torrenting all the shows I have watched and will watch again as well as new shit. Taking its toll on my bandwith
One of my friends insists on only streaming anime and it frustrates me to no end
i tried that out
my eyes started to beg for quality
I killed my last computer by torrenting and now I'm too afraid to do it again
How's that even possible?
>there are people on /a/ RIGHT NOW that do not extensively organize their anime downloads and back them up on multiple external harddrives.
I streamed anime until I got wrecked on /a/ for posting screencaps from a stream. Now I use MPC-HC and put all the good stuff on hard drives. Thank you, /a/, for showing me the light of torrenting.
Some of us do not want to get arrested by seeding torrents while downloading our anime.
kissanime has HQ quality and lets you download the streams without tools. anyone using torrents at this point is retardeed and begging to be sued by funimation.
>what is XDCC
>stream anime screencap everywhere
How do they deal with the cancer quality?
I have one on my PC hard drive and one on my external hard drive.
Because it looks the same.
I'm the type of person that bitches when a game caps at 30 FPS rather than 60. I do not notice a difference in my animu.
>mfw this thread exists
I've downloaded anime before.
I immediately deleted the anime when my miniature stroke subsides and I realize that streaming is more convenient.
you need a new eye if you cannot tell the quality difference between stream and HD dl. This isn't even close to comparing 30fps with 60fps
>there are people that archive HS and flip their shit at streamers
People who says this usually have shitty PC or tiny ass monitor (or both). I used to not be able to tell until I got a real setup
I thought the human eye couldn't see past thirty FPS.
It's a shitty myth
Thinks it's 24 fps, but we can still see a difference, in lagtime and stuff
>mfw I managed to convert two friends out of streaming
feels good, now I just have to change their shit tastes
I don't know about you guys, but my monitor is just my Sharp Aquos flatscreen, and my second monitor is of average size.
Is that good or bad?
wow this really is like reddit.
The human eye stops seeing a difference at about 100 frames per seconds.
But guys, I just want to Google my animu and watch it.
Why does anything else matter?
How and why did you convince them?
Also, if streaming is literally worse than Hitler, why are you friends with them?
>There are people on /a/ right now who believe Deadfish is a subgroup.
Sadly i have a "acquaintance" who believes this all the way to the grave.
At least he only does this shit with seasonal shows.
I stream when I'm on my netbook if I can't get a series in 480p.
It's pretty old and wasn't a high-powered machine in the first place. It can play some 720p files, but mostly it's a waste of time to download them because the computer just can't keep up.
I beat you download horriblesubs'
>using a netbook for casual use
Is your PC really that shit?
this is fine for shows your not sure you want to pick up
>Decide that Toradora might fit my tastes
>Start downloading it
>Wait a while for it to download
>Realize that I could watch it right now on Crunchyroll or Animeram or something
The most exciting and eye-opening moment in my life.
>How and why did you convince them?
Pretty simple really. One of them I just talked with him and he agreed that streaming was pretty shit and the other I was out drinking with him and a few other friends and in my drunken ramble I convinced him to give up streaming.
Why, you ask? Because what kind of friend would I be if I didn't want my homies to watch their anime in HD?
>Also, if streaming is literally worse than Hitler, why are you friends with them?
I've been friends with both of them since my childhood and I'm not autistic enough to break up a friendship just because they stream
My internet is so fucking bad that I'm actually able to watch shit faster using torrents than streaming. However I wonder if using HS is the same as streaming.
You could if crunchyroll actually had toradora
Shut up, Dodson.
You didn't even CATCH the dude. How can I trust your opinions when it comes to anime?
Presumably, his computer broke while he happened to be torrenting something, therefore it must be torrenting that broke it. That or he downloaded:
Or something of the like.
My PC is decent. I use the netbook at night while in bed. Which also happens to be when I do a good amount of anime viewing.
>mfw I live in american and don't feel like torrenting every single episode just to watch it once
>Not ordering your download by episode so you can start watching after ~5 minutes.
I like you.
Why would I even want to spend five minutes if I could find out whether the show is to my interest in twenty-one seconds?
That is, five minutes or twenty-one seconds before I can start watching, not before I make my decision as to whether the show is worth it. I can't judge a show that quickly.
The counter stops when the anime is ready to be watched, not when I've decided to drop it.
> Not watching your anime with a bunch of losers across the internet
I don't see the problem
>Decide to suddenly watch anime
>Since I'm inpatient and not a retard I use XDCC
>Wait less than a minute for it to load a little bit
There you go, do the same you do with streams without having to deal with the shit quality and by being able to choose your subgroup.
I dare you to say to my face that Commie is better for Senyuu S1. Come on, you motherfucker.
I'm steaming crunchyroll to my chromecast. It's shit.
what do you faggots actually do with your downloads? do you burn every single series/film on BD? doesnt this cost a fortune? do you put it on an HDD? you do realize most HDDs have a lifespan of 2-5 years? what is the pointt?
HD streams exist.
I honestly don't see a difference in video quality great enough to justify any more effort than pressing the 'play' button on my streaming service of choice.
But that isn't the point, Mr. Trips. The point is that other people are doing alternatives to the thing I'm doing, which is unacceptable. It doesn't matter how valid they are.
are you a weeb or somethin
Well how about that, a shitty player that doesn't load properly.
That seems like extra steps.
I only stream anime. Do something about it fag
Although I dislike Youtube because it downsamples both audio and video quality...
>talking like this
>imagining you have friends
Why do people think that downloading things is better than streaming things?
Can someone post some screenshots showing the differences between streaming and downloading? I always like those
So you get people drunk to convince them to do things?
Why didn't I think of that?
For me it's usually about sound quality, 250kps is a very good place to standardize things and 320kps is the upper limit
I stream shows when they're too old and there is no Torrents
Assuming you can still get the same quality than you would download, you still can't choose things like subgroups. And that IS a big deal; what if you're stuck with subs from Doki or Hadena? Most streaming sites use the first subs that come out.
You're downloading anyway. Might as well do it via DDL or XDCC. You can use both to watch while you download.
Not really. Log in, search, download. It's the same as looking for the series in your streaming site.
And even if it had an extra click or two, that takes no effort.
>definite worse quality than downloading
>not being able to choose subgroups
>not being able to archive anime
G-gee you sure sh-showed me
>most HDDs have a lifespan of 2-5 years
What are you on about m8?
OP is that your butthurt is showing.
Not him, but.
Quality site there.
the stream is even on my smaller monitor
Yes, and one of them is my brother.
He is a nice guy.
Steam fags are almost as bad as ZSNES fags.
the only thing you have is that it's a has pixels, but it's not like the difference between 720 and 1080 is so large that it's insurmountable, but yes I will admit it is noticeable. But with Downloading you have to save it somewhere right? What if you watch things like Bleach or One Piece. Pls tell me you have every sinlge episode of both those in 1080p and audio is wav/flac.
But the subs I choose when watching anime are subs that I find. If I am given a choice, I choose the one with the least distracting font, unless they are blatantly mistranslating things throughout the first few episodes.
I don't know which subgroups to trust, and it doesn't really matter to me as long as they are good enough.
What shitty browser are you using?
>Bleach or One Piece
You shouldn't be watching either of those.
there is a reason why people hated the "too realistic" quality of "the hobbit". filmed media is about imagination. if you need quality, go to a theatre play.
I don't believe that.
People complained about the high FPS, not quality.
Don't compare the two. You look real dumb.
Holy shit you're fucking retarded. The reason they thought it was weird was because it was filmed in 48fps.
We're here. We stream. Get used to it.
I don't want the V&
>inb4 were gay, were queer. Get used to it shoops
So her feet are less defined?
I don't see the problem.
But the line was "We're here, we're queer, get used to it'.
>But the subs I choose when watching anime are subs that I find
>I don't know which subgroups to trust
See, that's why you stream. You're ignorant. You don't know better.
>doesn't really matter to me as long as they are good enough
But that's exactly the point. With streams you don't know who subs what. You don't know if it's accurate, if it's from a bad subgroup, if it's from HS, nothing. If you don't know what groups are good, you find out. Browse /a/ and listen to other people, look for sub comparisons, etc. Streams rarely have the most accurate subs.
what shitty animu is this?
>I don't see the problem
My contacts are +7.50, and there's a huge clear difference in quality. You are either lying or completely blind/retarded if you actually think that.
>all these artificial barriers
720p isn't even that bad on youtube. A lot better than the shit I used to watch in the early 2000s. But the framerate is fucking awful. I dunno how anyone puts up with that shit.
But I don't care!
That reminds me of why I should be posting in /g/ more. There is no audible difference between mp3 @ 320 kps and Flac@1032kps
>What if you watch things like Bleach or One Piece
You download and delete. What's the problem? You'll be downloading them if you stream too. And nobody would use 1080p or flac for that.
That's why you're retarded and need to leave.
It's a bit blurry. The crease in her foot is less defined, as is the cloth on Inko-chan's cage.
At least I don't have to download it.
>1080p or flac for that
>b-but muh barely visable/audible difference respectively
Then you're just stupid. Go on and use the most inaccurate subs with the worst video and audio quality.
Then you're just blind if that's the only fault you find in that. Enjoy your shit fag
But I like watching anime, as well as reading manga, light novels, and visual novels.
His 'shit, fag' or his 'shit-fag'?
Another example would be that you can make out differences in the wood table in the downloaded image, whereas the stream is just an indistinguishable brown blur across the surface.
I don't understand why people care about the subs or video quality. In any good anime the only important parts are the cool fights. No one gives a shit about boring talking. Simons drill peircing the heavens looks awesome no matter what quality.
Hmm? The table looks like a table to me.
But nobody thinks that.
Okay, but you're still retarded.
Can someone post a picture from a 720/1080 stream from Crunchyroll and a torrented 720 picture?
So I can compare?
His 'shit-fag'. Streamers get complimentary shit fags for being retarded.
>people seriously think this
Then I'm going to agree with the tripfag and suggest you get your eyes examined.
Literally kill yourself
Maybe some do, but that guy is obviously baiting you. Ignore.
It was a joke you retard. Calm the fuck down.
>not caring about subs
If you say so.
Sometimes i stream anime i don´t want to download,mostly ovas and short shows.
Because I CAN tell the difference between the table and the floor?
I used to stream hentai. But now I just grab whatever has decent seeds on nyaa even if I can't read moon runes. It's like a grab bag of porn.
>HDDs have a lifespan of 2-5 years
My main hard drive it's over 8 years old, never had a problem with it.
>But nobody thinks that
Except people like OP do
Why does it matter?
Maybe my post wasn't clear, I was talking about how I can make out how the surface of the table has variations in color, like wood normally would have, but in the stream it's not really discernible.
>not streaming Master of Martial Hearts
it's like you don't want the full experience.
I was going to artifact it more but I couldn't remember how
It's not if I say so. Choosing the worst options possible while knowing that the better version is out there and is just as easy to obtain makes you a retard. This is a fact.
Sounds like you don't take care of your stuff.
Anyone? Of course streaming from some shitty website is going to be lower quality but what about CR HD streams?
But it isn't just as easy.
I don't want to download things when I can avoid it.
Because I like having a large selection of porn? That's pretty much it. Plus you get all the obscure shit that will never get subbed or uploaded to stream sites.
What? I'm saying that nobody thinks 1080p and flac is the best way to watch anime. Everybody knows 1080p is just an upscale and that the difference with flac is barely noticeable.
OP thinks people who stream are idiots. That has nothing to do with what I just said.
Do you all download your hentai too, instead of stream?
I download all the anime I watch, but I don't download my hentai, except for Kuroinu last November. I can't understand download something you're honestly just masturbating to. Most of the time they're never released in better quality than 480p anyway.
I like it too.
The torrent file names help me out a lot.
what a wide range poll!
main HDDs with less than 500 MB dont have so many discs inside that it affects the quality. a storage 2TB HDD on the other hand...
It is. Actually, it would be more time consuming for me to look up for a decent stream on google. Just because you're ignorant it doesn't mean it's more difficult.
I have a 8 TB NAS, RAID5. I am planning on upgrading soon. This solves most problems with HDD failure.
I am looking into tape backups in a safe deposit box, but long term backups are expensive.
CR HD streams are the same as Horriblesubs. That should tell you all you need to know.
I keep a few handy, just in case my internet goes down and I want to fap.
You don't know decent stream sites, then.
Gogoanime is really nice.
>You download and delete. What's the problem?
The problem is torrenting isn't legal, however streaming it is. Torrent extremely large shows is just stupid risky. Especially when you can find streams extremely easily
Jesus Christ how horrifying
>Not having a smut VN on standby in case internet goes out
I almost always stream too, but if it's a good enough series, I will download some episodes.
>Some of us have bandwith caps
How poor are you?
So do you streamfags download BDs when they come out? Or do you just stick to streaming TV rips.
You'll download individual episodes?
That's interesting. Why not just stream all of it or none of it?
To download shows, I don't do anything because my torrent client starts up on boot and I have RSS configured to grab new releases when they come out. So often times, I'll have an episode for a few hours without even noticing it.
>what about not airing shit
Slap the torrent file in my watch directory and it automatically downloads where I want it.
Torrenting is easy and simple.
How is the quality any different?
>Torrent extremely large shows is just stupid risky.
We're talking about video and audio quality. It being illegal/risky has nothing to do with it.
Unless you live in japan or something, turning isn't a bug deal at all. Distributing will get you put in jail or fined, however.
Is streaming anime legal? Pirating it obviously isn't.
It's not. Both CR and HS look like shit.
I don't, but that still doesn't mean it's more difficult for you to download it than stream it.
Nowhere near as simple as streaming.
And why would you automatically download EVERYTHING that comes out?
Are you serious?
>dat color washout
People pay money for this?
On sites like Crunchyroll? Yeah, it's legal. Everywhere else? Nah.
Yeah it does.
Between HS and other groups? HS's encoding is shit. It looks worse overall.
Look at HS's release of Blood Lad. The OP looks like ass.
>Nowhere near as simple as streaming.
Did you even read it? I literally don't do anything to download airing shows and downloading anything else is as simple as putting a torrent file in my watch directory.
Obviously, I filter out the shit I don't want to download.
To watch it obviously. Are you retarded or something?
I usually only stream cruchy roll. But because I can't stand the idea of actually being helpful and supporting the industry I'm sure to use adblocker.
When I torrent I remove the option to seed.
I am the scum of the earth, and proud.
But that's what I have my pics limitless pics for anon.
Explain why then, because both are as easy to perform.
But I don't want to set that up. Google is still simpler.
Just got a Crunchyroll trial (30 days).
Literally nothing wrong with my stream quality. I have my own collection of anime on my HDD, but there is almost no difference between Crunchyroll, and- in this example- a 720p Underwater rip.
>go to google
>search for stream
>sort through all the low quality bullshit to find a good one
>go to nyaa
>type in show name
>I don't want to make my life easier.
Do you not drive because you had to take the time to learn how to drive? It's the same idea.
Well, I could Google 'gogoanime angel beats'
Or I could do all that other stuff.
>show automatically downloads for every episode
I'm going to guess that the majority of people who stream don't give a fuck about the disadvantages of streaming, nor do they give a fuck about what /a/ thinks about the fact that they stream.
Oh, sorry, should have quoted you.. I posted exactly that. Only thing is I scaled the 1080p streaming image to 720 when making the comparison.
XDCC is just as easy once you have IRC up.
>search for show in packlist/tracker of choice
>paste line into IRC
>watch as it downloads
>friend shows converts me from streaming anime a long time ago
>Shows me the wonders of MPC-HC
>he now pays and streams for anime on crunchy roll.
how did this happen?
CR devs, why do you even try?
"I'm too retarded to do stuff that will help me". Why would you bother to learn how to walk if it's 'too complicated' to learn how to? Just crawl on the floor ya retard.
I don't normally watch things as they come out, so the point is a bit moot.
>Using Klk as a comparison
The show looks like ass anyway so it doesn't matter that much. Try this one.
I don't see a TV logo. It looks like Underwater just used a Crunchy rip.
as long as they stay off /a/ it's fine
Is CR bottom? It looks worse but not by a lot compared to the other images in this thread. Even so, there's no reason to stream even if you remove the whole quality debate.
I just noticed we're arguing with people from Facebook.
Then downloading a series at once should be far more convenient than having to find and stream every episode as you go.
Go back to /b/
Daiz encodes the 1080p CR because he claims it looks better (which I personally think is bullshit because the one episode they did when CR was delayed looked better to me).
CR is top
Well, you could just google "animetake angle beats" and download it. Or "nyaa.eu angle beats". Or log into IRC and type "!find angle beats X"
See, just as simple. And even if it took an extra step, it's not some something that requires some huge amount of effort and time. Just an extra click.
You are legally blind if you don't see a difference here.
You can only go so far with pics, Anon
Downloading is still easier especially when you are watching long series. Have fun constantly switching webpages for every episode while I just open a file in my file manager.
>Sakura Ice Cream
Who would eat ice cream made from flowers?
Audio/Video quality aside, I could never tolerate streaming (or HS, for that matter) because the episodes aren't fucking chaptered.
Except that you have to switch webpages every time you go to another episode.
It's ice cream made from slut actually.
Guys, guys, let's make a truce. It is okay to stream as long as
a)you know you are using an objectively inferior format with literally no advantages
b)you never post a screenshot
c)you never mention how you watch anime
I have a cap of 500gb / month but I have a 1gb connection and download shit at 11mb/s. If you want unlimited in Alaska you need to have a download speed of like 1mb/s
I'm fine with this I guess.
Anyone who has the sense not to post about their streaming should also have the sense to not stream in the first place.
It's never ok to stream.
Jesus christ that's cold. I'd still take the unlimited though since I can fly through over 500gb without a problem.
No, you are still a faggot and retard. That's the main issue.
You mean going to another page on the same site? Oh how terrible.
XDCC, torrent sites, and download sites give you the shows by list. You don't have to re-search.
I'm sure you streaming sites don't work in an automatic queue. You'll have to click something to get to the next episode.
And this is what I was just talking about. Going to another page, making an extra click, all that changes nothing and takes no effort. Thinking that streaming as a whole is better because you have to do 3 clicks instead of 5 makes you look like a retard. Are you a retard?
Yeah I recently went over the cap last month, had to use internet extremely sparingly for about a week since they charge by the megabyte when you go over.
I'm fine with that. If you want to be a retard go be a retard on your own.
But 1Mb/s*31 Days = 334.8 GB
The 500 GB connection is better in every way.
I use streams to pinpoint at which episode I dropped a show once, so I can pick it up agian
>mfw some autists on /a/ pretend to hate anything that become popular
Jesus, people actually watch shit on CR even when it looks that shit?
Not at 1mb/s you can, friend.
Sounds like autism. Not that I stream, I just don't see why you faggots care so much. point b I understand and agree with.
>mfw 1080p stream all day.
You're clearly not thinking here. Let's say I want to rewatch 0079 in the future when EG finishes the BDs.
>google some random website
>bad quality and shitty player
>constantly has to buffer video
>have to reload webpages and video after every episode
>bad experience all around
>download EG batch from nyaa
Wait nigger, we're both arguing about the same thing. Aren't you saying that it's worse to stream? Becuase that's what I'm saying.
HOW I CAN NOT STREAM IF YOU FAGGOTS DON'T SEED OLD SHOWS? FUCKING HYPOCRITES
I can say with moderate confidence that walking is easier than crawling.
XDCC and DDL.
What are you looking for?
>Want to watch Mazinger for that crabstick and Mecha action.
>Stops at 99.5%
Well shit. I thought you were the other guy. My apologies.
None of you have HD TV's or monitors, right?
Old shows are easy to find. The hardest shit to find is the terrible early 2000 era of anime.
Proof that you guys are complicating things
Well shit. I did the math and you're right. There's way less seconds in a month than I thought. (Like 2.6 million I think) Damn.
I use an HD TV as my main monitor, and a regular monitor as my secondary monitor.
Why do you ask?
Proofs only exist in mathematics.
Psycho pass, only 1 fucking seed in every episode
I just fucking want Ashita no Joe subbed, I would even stream it if it meant I could watch it completely subbed god damn.
>Not streaming shit shows or ones you are just checking out
>Not reserving downloading for shows you actually like.
But in all seriousness, I stream shit during my breaks at work.
But math is the universal language.
There's a fucking BD batch you retard.
Is there even any decent site to stream anime in HD? The best I can think of is animezero but I don't think it has everything.
And do you not use AB or something?
Have you not tried looking for batch torrents?
I assumed that this was standard knowledge.
Why would I want to check out a show in less than optimal quality?
Do you download the DVDs of an old show to see if you like it before you go download the BD?
My new monitor
Have fun, fag.
Is everyone who streams this retarded?
So, if I don't notice any significant issues with resolution, I don't care about whether the subs are by the Wigawoo Fansub Initiative or the Jumbobibble Association of Unofficial Subtitles, and I always have a solid internet connection, then what benefit does downloading have over streaming?
The only reason I ever consider steaming is because my college blocks ALL torrents, I literally can not download anything unless it's a direct download.
It's 27 inches not 29. I know because I have that exact same monitor. It looks very nice and you can actually force 72hz out of it (which I highly recommend you do if you aren't already).
Fuck,now I need to commit sudoku
either way seed your fucking torrents assholes
Streaming is okay for when you're on breaks at work.
If you're at home you should never stream.
>If I ignore all the advantages downloading has over streaming what does it have?
>2014 and people still think streams actually still have shitty they had 5 years ago
I've said this again and again everytime people say this: mp4s and smaller than mkvs. Whether you like it or not, places with bandwidth limit exists. If you can solve this problem all over the world, then please, continue shitting on people streaming.
High quality streams exist. If you can actually SEE the difference between these varieties then good for you.
But you see, we never talk about how this episode has really nice pixels on "this" side and on "that" side. The "quality" you're talking about in streams only matter if it looks like censored penises in your doujin.
Aside from that, how different is the episode I'm watching from the one you're watching?
I don't think that's a fair comparison.
If you downloaded the DVD before downloading anything else, then you would still be downloading things.
I fucking love this new thing, and do tell
>if I don't care that it looks like shit and the subs are shit and the audio is shit
I guess there are no benefits if you ignore them all.
Friendly tip, people tend to delete seasonal shows after they've finished.
If they like them that much then they'll download the blu-ray rip or a batch torrent.
Also Psycho Pass isn't old you moron.
Those are three things that don't matter to me.
If downloading came with a free hat, then that would be a point in favor of downloading that I would willingly accept.
does it actually have episodes though crunchy roll has anime on it site but doesnt have episodes for it
Well, I know how to switch refresh rates on Linux. With intel/free drivers, it's just an xrandr command. Unfortunately, nvidia's proprietary drivers are a dick so I had to write an xorg.conf for it.
As for Windows, well use google find out because I dunno, but it does do 72hz which will free you from the plague known as motion judder.
Please explain how downloading anime is for hipsters.
Every single anime I've ever streamed has either been 720p or 1080p I can't even see a deference between that and downloading .
>you would still be downloading things
So? The point was why I would check anything out in less than optimal quality. It all costs the same.
>Never had rose ice cream
It's pretty good
Now I wanna try sakura ice cream.
because streaming is just 6mainSTREAM12u
Welcome to Australia
But the point is that you AREN'T downloading DVDs and such when you stream. You press the 'play' button, and you get a bunch of pretty anime girls telling you whether or not the show is worth watching.
The alternative is download it, wait a few hours, THEN press the 'play' button and have a bunch of pretty anime girls tell you if the show is worth it.
Where do you watch your shit?
Looks like a contrast problem but it is due to the screen or the player?
>wait a few hours
Do you live in Africa? Set download priority to high for the first episode, wait a few minutes and check it out. Why is a stream filled with artifacts a good way to check out a show?
>The alternative is download it, wait a few hours
>a few hours
>not downloading by file order
By the time I finish watch the first episode of something, the next 2 or 3 will have finished, and so on.
It's due to CR's encodes being horeshit. You can see the terrible banding on the 3 shot and all those terrible artifacts everywhere. And the color looks bad on CR's as well.
>no anime looks as good when streamed!
>no TRUE anime looks as good when streamed!
>how different is the episode I'm watching from the one you're watching
You're most likely using shittier subs with no typesetting. If the show has a BD/DVD release, you're most likely watching the TV version.
>you need to have a download speed of like 1mb/s
Is this considered low? I have a fucking 400 kb/s connection and that's average-high for my country.
>ITT: faggots argue the best way to pirate their chinese cartoon
dunno m8 I've stream a lot of CR pilots in 1080 and 720, I guess I'll download the OP's for reference though on both VLC and DivX.
I do everything in my power to get these things legally.
I want to learn Japanese so I can watch raws, and can remove any legally questionability from my viewing.
Raws are still illegal.
I streamed the dub version and it wasn't on funimation's website either. No, I watched it on PinoyAnime. I didn't even know philipinos had internet.
>no anime looks as good when streamed!
Nobody ever said that. Until the recent BD release, the only other available release of Be Forever Yamato was some terrible hardsubbed xvid encode. See >>>/m/10234451
Kill la kill has no real budget and is probably SD so even CR's atrocious encoding doesn't make much of a difference. However, the difference is very clear when you use a show that is actually produced well (purely speaking technically here) suck as KnK.
As in, you download torrents at 400kbs?
Let's be honest, most of us just get the first one released then find better subs afterwards. Streaming is no different. You watch the first one out then check another if you want a better one.
You get almost the same thing if you know where to find it.
Aside from the one pointed out earlier where the colors are different, there's not so much to complain about. Typesetting is only important if you want a screenshot.
BD realeases is an entirely different topic. Because you're most likely not going to get streams of it anyway. You don't have a choice but to download those.
>Let's be honest, most of us just get the first one released then find better subs afterwards.
Yes, people who race to download CR rips (AKA HS) are no better than streamfags.
Lets play a game OP
>There are people watching anime right now
I can see the difference, but...
Which one is the good one?
Yeah don't pick scenes with any clear details or anything. Try harder streamfag.
You made the left one smaller?
The one that isn't banded to hell and back and not riddled with artefacts?
How else am I supposed to get my legal animu fix you filthy filthy pirate?
>earlier ago we were talking about quality
>now it's a matter of "they're no better than plebs"
Anyway, by that logic, threads that come up a few minutes or within an hour HS releases theirs shouldn't exist. Because apparently, you say they're as good as stremfags.
two different screen sizes
I'm just seeing different amounts of orange.
Yeah. I donwload two average shows in an hour.
I picked something that shows contrast, deal with it
>Let's be honest, most of us just get the first one released then find better subs afterwards
Well I don't know about you but I wait for my proper subs. You can't know for sure is most people use the first subs available for all the shows they watch.
>Typesetting is only important if you want a screenshot
Maybe to you. Watching shows like Hoozuki without typesetting is fucking awful.
CR streams are as good as streams get and they'll still worse. You can notice the artifacts and bad encoding, and it's not chaptered. They're still inferior in noticeable ways.
Are you fucking blind? I realized that you were too dumb to figure out how to switch pictures (there's three different comparison by the way), but look at Aki's uniform.
>people who stream
>people who skip openings
>people who skip endings

Get on my level.
>people who exist post 1999
No, I'm still talking about quality. CR video looks like ass and people should never download the shit that HS rips. Yes, I'm well aware that people make threads who have only watched that shitty video and it's not a good thing.
Why should I watch a preview of the next episode when I can just watch the next episode?
try and stop me /a/
Yeah, I saw that there were three different images.
whatssssss the best video player to play my animu
>lesbians in school: The anime
Seriously though this show fucking blows
What's wrong with reading manga online or on a smartphone?
>I skip opening and endings
>I read manga on Batoto
>The only series i have downloaded are Jojo and detroit metal city
Because most of the time there's character interactions and jokes in the previews. Also they're fucking short and usually well done.
Recaps I can understand skipping.
The only kind of previews you should ever watch are the ones where the characters just babble random things at each other. NEVER watch LoGH's previews, those are the exact kind you should avoid. No, I don't want to know what's going to happen next. I shouldn't know.
my penis likes it
are you a snake
The same thing that's wrong with streaming anime.
mpv on GNU/Linux
>No, I don't want to know what's going to happen next. I shouldn't know
Exactly I want to be on the edge of my seat making scenarios about what could happen next
Maybe I've just been watching a lot of series with straightforward previews lately, but I see your point. Those I don't skip, but I consider them more than simply previews.
But...it's a picture. A static drawing.
On an iPhone.
You're blind if you cannot see how terrible the CR video is. I can understand missing it on the first picture since you have to look at Aki's uniform to really see it, but holy fuck the other two look terrible everywhere.
I guess it looks a bit odd.
>Well I don't know about you but I wait for my proper subs.
Good for you then. Then again, I've been talking animu about you guys for years and we've understood each other so far. My point is it's not like we end up watching totally different subs. One way or another, you guys get to correct what we've watched wrong. When we find out, we can find another version if we want to. Almost just the same as downloading it.
>You can notice the artifacts and bad encoding, and it's not chaptered. They're still inferior in noticeable ways.
Again, artefacts aren't things we usually talk about unless we're in this kind of threads anyway. Color balance, contrast, you don't see that in a lot of threads that talk about the show.
If your purpose is to archive these shows for the good of the future generations after the apocalypse or whathaveyou, then good job. I'm grateful for your effort. But in the short run, which is finding out what happens in the story, there's not much difference to talk about.
That's even more the reason to want good quality, video sometimes mask image defects.
Have you seen how big manga usually is? Even tablets push it.
It doesn't have anything to do with quality. It's the goddamn watermarks. But if you count thhat as quality then so be it..
No, it's more than a bit odd. Take the colors on the 3rd picture. Which do you prefer, the banding on the left or the smooth gradient on the right as shown in this picture in this post. >>101050817
Now find the comparison that matches up with your preferred choice. Surely, you see now right?
The quality is more general. 99% of the online manga sites resize images to lower bandwidth use, in adittion to the shitty watermarks.
It's also a sense of collecting, fucking non-autists
Nobody move, or I'll press play!
I'll do it! I swear to god, /a/, I'll do it!
Oh, and there's also the fact that no internet failure can interrupt your reading.
If I watch anime I stream it, I don't feel like downloading it and cluttering up my hard drive
Also I read my manga on mangafox their bookmarking system is stupidly convenient and I use adblock plus/avast and don't browse the forums. So I don't get the virus'
Oh right this. Well I can't argue with this.
I cannot enjoy a visual medium if the visual quality looks like shit.
Okay...the chalkboard isn't smooth on one of them.
Hardly a deal breaker, but okay. I see it.
Too bad then. It's nice that you have eyes that can recognize these shit quality without a side by side comparison.
Others are contented with almost the same thing with a couple(sorta) of dots here and there that they won't even see unless they've deliberately compared it with downloads.
>Hardly a deal breaker.
It looks fucking terrible. It IS a deal breaker. Jesus.
I download my stuff from streaming sites using IDM
I live in a shitty third world country, I have no choice
I really don't care about how I watch my anime.
As long as I can watch my anime, it's fine by me.
But what the heck am I doing here, posting on /a/ instead of watching anime?
I truly have magical eyes don't I?
Do you guys really put up with this shit? Does this look really okay to you?
Really? Okay, then.
It doesn't seem distracting to me, but alright.
I see a lit candle.
Does this look okay to you too?
How can someone actually tolerate this shit?
It's a shit anime, what do you expect?
Fuck you and your bad taste. That was the best mecha last year other than Build Fighters.
MJP was shit. It relied on character gags and had awful character designs. It was far inferior to Gundam Unicorn, Gargantia, and Valvrave.
I cannot comprehend HS downloaders either. That episode of MJP was one that commie was horribly slow on, so I decided that I'd just try out the CR rip just to see what it was like.
I nearly gouged my eyes out watching it. It was a terrible experience, and I have not touched CR since then.
>inferior to Gundam Unicorn
Okay, I can understand why someone might hold this opinion.
>Gargantia, and Valvrave.
Jesus christ, I hope you don't believe this.
I see a man that seems to have an abnormally large nose.
What don't I see?
Daiz is a faggot. but 1080p does look better
>mfw i'm doing it right now
The shows available on there vary by region, Pretty sure everything they have is available to North America, everywhere else varies by series, for example, I'm in the UK and Kill La Kill isn't listed for me.
Oh and the framerate on the episode was also wrong resulting in constant judder because CR cannot encode for shit.
Artefacts and atrocious banding
Welcome to literally every ISP in America if you live in an area without competition (re: not in a major city) They're fucking greedy, man.
Suddenlink bought out my old provider here and then slapped a bandwidth cap on us a year later, and there's no competition unless you count satellite internet or dialup.
Banding. Horrible banding.
It's just banding m8
Can you explain to me why you believe MJP was good? I can't see it. The character gags were absolutely disgusting, and the art was hideous.
What is there to like in it?
MJP is a great throwback to 90s mecha. Played straight without any lame gimmicks. The CGI mecha action actually looks fucking amazing, the character interactions are very nice (seriously, Izuru is moe as fuck) and the plot is solidly written and done right.
Yes it does.
Wait, what's wrong with streaming? My videos always look nice and play well. Is it different in other countries? I'm in the U.S.A.
I don't have anywhere to download and store shows anyway.
Oh well, that one's pretty bad when you come down to it but not noticable unless you do notice it.
Bottomline, yes, I put up with that kind of thing since it doesn't really affect much of my viewing experience.
But I love 90's Mecha and hated MJP. I don't see it.
>I don't have anywhere to download and store shows anyway.
I don't see why you would hate it. What people normally love mecha for (action, robots, war setting, that kind of thing), MJP handled all of that extremely well especially the action.
I get that Tamaki can be annoying, but I don't understand why you'd have a problem with anybody else on the main cast. And Jiart raping people was great.
I dropped it before episode 4. Is it worth continuing?
All I have is this shitty notebook. It's not even really mine, i'm just borrowing it.
Do you like mecha? If yes, then you'll probably like it. Admittedly, the show doesn't pick up really until the episode that Izuru fights Jiart (around 7-9 I think), but it's pretty smooth sailing from there on out.
Install gentoo, you'll have plenty of room for shows with all the winbloat removed!
Very well, I watch at least until episode 10.
If you dropped it that early, then I can see why you have that opinion. From what I remember, the pace picks up a bit a few episodes later.
Gentoo is a great distro though. You should have told him to install something shitty like Ubuntu.
That would make me a liar, because Ubuntu is bloated as shit.
Protip(not so much really if you're a downloadfag, but maybe you sohuld try if you're out to disprove someone):
If you're streaming, try animeultima.com. Pick the episode then on the mirrors below of the present video, choose the one uploaded on MP4Upload by LordK. There would be two most of the time. Choose the one on the right-most or the one on the bottom row(meaning it was uploaded earlier).
That one's okay as far as streams would go. You can download it in mp4 format by clicking on the download button in the player. It will open a new tab which will take you to MP4upload. No ads or whatever. There's a download button below there. Most files range from 80mb to 150mb.
>inb4 advocating streams
Again, no. Just giving options to those who can't afford to download torrents.
Yeah it is. I'm on Arch myself and that base-up install is pretty nice. I'm not sure if I'm really autistic enough to make any real use out of cflags or whatever special things you can do with portage.
I've never once touched the flags for fear of breaking something, I am the worst ricer of all time.
reported for being underage
My nigga, AnimeUltima is the future of streams, but they don't carry most old shows.
Yeah, I've tried lots of anime*putrandomwordhere*.com sites and they only prove streams are shit. You're right though. They barely have or don't have old shows at all. Ones before and early 2000s.

Protip: using Horriblesubs (except when no subgroups are doing the show or only someone with trollsubs like Commie) is just as bad as streaming
I can't think of any commie trollsubs since Steins;gate.
Space Dandy might not be a good example.
This is quite a self-contradicting post, isn't it?
>HS is bad!
>Unless there are no other subs
>HS is good then
I used that site for a long time but switched to AnimeFTW because of their Android App for when I'm away from home
No, Commie is still better than HS. You get competent encodes and type setting in exchange for some extra localization that shouldn't really bother you since you don't know Japanese.
Video quality > Sub quality
A reminder that Crunchyroll is perfectly fine.
>Uni blocks torrents and IRC
Life is suffering
Just an example. The majority of Commie's releases aren't shit/trollsubs, it's just that Commie is what comes to mind when I thihnk trollsubs.
>>HS is good then
>implying I said that
Acceptable != Good
See my reply to: >>101059635
>video quality > sub quality
Unless the show is just about flashy action sequences, then why would that be the case?
I was going to post zombie meow.
I know this already, however I hate waiting 2 or 3 days for good subs.
Eotens. I waited on Evetaku every week.
Worst possible sub quality means no subtitles, but you still have video and can piece together stuff.
Worst possible video quality means no video at all and only audio which means you miss pretty much everything (anime is a visual medium). Minor mistakes in a sub script is not a big deal, but mistakes in video makes me puke.
I've never seen an anime stream of such poor quality that I couldn't piece together what was happening.
And I haven't seen an anime where I could understand all of what was happening without subtitles.
in uni dorm torrents were blocked so streaming sites were a godsand.
Oh, I forgot about that. I picked GG for them, since you'd have to be crazy to not use trollsubs for Eotena Onslaught.
Screen shot from my galaxy note of a manga site.
I honestly don't think it looks bad.
The only issues I may have is that my 4G may not always work but that's rarely the case
What is XDCC
That's not an equivalent comparison. You're taking the worst possible subs (i.e none) and comparing it to bad video.
Even subs as bad as, say Hadena, you can figure out what they are saying happening.
Oh shit, here it is
What are the dimensions of the screen?
>you can figure out what they are saying happening.
Damn it. That's a hadena-tier sentence right there. Sorry about that.
I don't know if it's the case for every school, but if torrents are blocked, IRC (XDCC) is usually blocked too.
I thought you were saying that not having subs and having high quality is fine while having perfect subs and low quality is unwatchable.
Am I misunderstanding?
Yes. I'm saying that high quality video with lackluster subtitles is preferable to low quality video with high quality subtitles.
blocked/doesnt work properly. Not everyone lives in their parents basement.
>mfw there are people on /a/ right now who are in love with imaginary characters
Not for mine. XDCC all day every day on their nice connection.
I live in a third world country and I get 90mb/s.
I'm in love with robots actually.
A reminder that streaming is really convenient.
Do you know what XDCC is? There's no way p2p is blocked unless your dorm has blocked all outgoing connections.
>what is RSS
The image looks high quality and it doesn't seem to have been resized.
But that means jackshit if you look at it in a screen smaller than the image itself, unless you like zooming in, which I find kind of retarded.
Far too "complicated" for streamfags to set up.
Oh god that's so hot.
I'm literally turned on right now. I think I'll give GW a spin again.
Looks absolutely terrible compared to the actual size.
Anime is not good enough to fucking download. Usually I just skip 30% of the garbage cliche moments just to catch the actual plot.
Only download good shit, like Death Note, CG, Clannad , ;_;
Or some real shows written by the white master race, Arrested Devlopment, Community S1 S2, True Detective
>mfw weaboos download anime
5.7" phone screen
I wasn't zooming in either
I can properly fit a page on my screen.
How could they block IRC?
Surely the CS department would collectively pick up and head off to gensokyo without being able to circlejerk in IRC
It's not in anyway more convenient than torrenting.
If you know how to set up the RSS feed, it boils down to double-clicking on it when its already on your folder.
Chirico, just speak your mind for once damn it.
Yeah, I don't know what the proper term for it is if there is one. Enlighten me.
Well, rx782 has only done episodes 1-6 so far. He does have the first boxset though (1-25), so it shouldn't be too long now.
I don't know. What is RSS?
I've been torrenting for awhile but I'm still a newfag. How do you set up RSS? Like say I wanted Nagi No Asukara on RSS
And if you stream, you press the shiny button and it makes the anime go.
I find it hard to believe that your phone is as large as the image. That thing is about the same size as my tablet.
Also, I should say that inches mean nothing to me when talking about phones. I only understand PC monitors and TVs.

Okay. Sure, why not.
Your penis is probably around 6in, so use that as a reference.
Oh, so it's one less button press. Plus checking your anime list every week when a new episode comes out instead of just letting everything play itself.
And that's not taking into account the difference in quality and fidelity.

What? I watch the episode, then I click the link to the next episode. Then I click the link to the next episode. Then I click the link to the finale episode. Then I Google similar shows to try and fill the void.
XDCC only works for popular shows. Good luck trying to 3+ year old shows that are obscure.
It's even worse with completed series actually.

Well, you might as well wait on the BDs since they'll look pretty great. Catch up on your other gundam shows if you haven't already.
But I know my streaming services, and I know which ones are good. My connection is fine, as is the video player, so I don't have to wait for the video to buffer.
>not ongoing anime
Then it's even more ratarded to stream.
>Repeat by number of episodes

This is it fitted to my screen.

>mfw there are people who don't watch currently airing anime
If your connection is good, it would be better spent downloading quality encodes.
>video player is fine
It sure as hell isn't mpv, so it's not.
What about it?
>Check "Play next in folder" for "after play-back"
All of these are words I recognize individually
>Catch up on your other gundam shows if you haven't already.
What? There are other BD releases going on?
XDCC doesn't work in dorms, so I bought CR instead.
I download when at home, but CR still serves a purpose. Besides, half of the subgroups these days rip CR subs, anyway.
Because you need the episode downloaded to upload it. Most uploaders don't download old shows and go up to at most 2002.
「 ......... 」
What is a bookmark?
The screen is almost as big as a nexus.
But...the video player doesn't crash, doesn't buffer, and lets me watch anime. It does everything I want it to.
Well 0079 of course. Although that one is going fairly roughly. (At least it's about halfway now). SEED Destiny (heh) is getting the last BD box of the remasters in April I think.
I just meant watch any other gundam show that you might have not watched. (G and Turn A BDs when?)
Literally 3 seconds in Google
Still isn't easier than RSS.
>dat instant load time
>dat rich sound quality
Or if you use crunchy
It doesn't do "vo=opengl-hq:lscale=spline36:cscale=spline36" so it's shit. Plain and simple.
>Besides, half of the subgroups these days rip CR subs, anyway.
Are you having a giggle? That's HorribleSubs.
You're paying for a service which provides video quality and translation quality lesser than that provided by proper fansubbers which are offered for free. You're not directly supporting the anime industry with CR, you're also supporting a business which illegally charged customers for fansubs originally.
Elaborate on how XDCC doesn't work.
I also recognize those words together, but not in that particular order.
Well a lot of subgroups do just edit the CR script, but they of course, end up with a much better product in the end.
>Still isn't easier than RSS
I'm sorry but you literally just save the site and url that you want to watch and the anime is updated weekly
Does RSS find the animes for me and watch them and analyze them or something?
They also tend to have superior encodes, it's hard to be shittier than horriblesubs.
How is that not easier, then?
Well, obviously. The two instances of 'spline36' are really what makes the anime well-written.
I get it now.
Protip: RSS automatically downloads new releases based on filters you set.
>not bookmarking the anime you want to watch
It's the same thing as an RSS faggot deal with it
I'm not sure of the exact names of the menus, but it's right there when you right click on MPC-HC.
>not understanding upscaling algorithms
No wonder you're okay with shitty video quality.
I'm sorry, but you literally just have to double click the file that magically downlads and it plays.
Most subgroups you can find on Nyaa rip something based on CR subs, which are usually pretty accurate anyway. And no, I don't buy into the "supporting the industry" thing. It's a service I pay for that works. I don't care about the cows that die so I can eat steak.
Simply won't play or load. Tried ever workaround. None worked. Fuck me, right?
Why would I want it to download things I don't tell it to?
>Does RSS find the animes for me
Yes, you fucking illiterate.
>mfw the only series i ever streamed was code geass
My laptop was broke and i streamed it on my t.v. through my playstation.
>IFINITE LAUGHING WHORES.gif
>ifinte laughing whore
I can do the same thing faggot
Because with RSS you simply have to double click the file. It downloads itself the moment of release.
You're pretty much guaranteed it will be on your computer before it's streaming anywhere with the possible exception of CR, though if you're using CR you should wise up to the fact you are cancer.
>based on filters you set
Having trouble reading?
>that magically downlads and it plays
This is what download fags actually think
I read that part. But why would I want it to download things I don't specifically tell it to?
Not really, you used the mark of the pleb, his was just a typo.
You realize XDCC is a way to download right?
I'm sorry but you literally have no idea what you are talking about
It downloads what you tell it to, you uneducated faggot.
That's what happens though. Are you retarded? It downloads for you, doesn't ask or anything just starts downloading right as its available.
Doesn't it download based on what you filter out?
How do you set up an RSS?
>One retard who doesn't understand who RSS downloader works tries to defend streaming.
What a retard.
It broke my heart when nobody did BD rips of Kotoura-san.
>BASED ON THE FILTERS YOU SET
It can be both inclusive and exclusive.
I'm counting about three of us.
How does RSS work, then?
Go to torrent program
Tell RSS downloader what you want to download
That shitty show is something I never want to experience ever again.
Are you fucking serious? Do you know what filtering even means?
If you really don't get it, RSS downloads based on whatever rules you set it to. You can also do everything manual. You can do what you fucking want with it.
I don't even know how to use XDCC.
Oh. So the filter selects what I want to keep, not what I want to remove.
Just like a real filter doesn't.
HS over commie any day.
>IT CAN BE BOTH INCLUSIVE AND EXCLUSIVE.
Seriously, try reading. Also keeping things out is a matter of perspective.
See I have to download a shitty botnet to do this
The group I'm going to follow?
deluge also has RSS support but through plugins
And there are filters where what you want stay on the top. Panning gold is filtering the water and you stay with the gold.
I'm starting to think today is your first day on a computer.
A filter isn't necessarily just for removing bad things, it can be used to remove a tiny amount of something you want buried in a sea of shit.
I use a GNU/Linux distribution with rtorrent+rutorrent for all my torrenting needs which has wonderful RSS support.
This is more work than needed, at least on qBittorrent.
You just pick up the "no remakes" feed, and make one rule for every show, and maybe some for entire groups if you always prefer their releases.
What's a computer?
Install gentoo faggot
Gold would be a good example of that.
I bet you use audio Technica too
You don't have a torrent program? Are you my grandmother or something? Actually even my grandmother with alzheimers downloads music from the pirate bay.
it's too tinny and veiled for me
I've never even heard of this company.
>comparing animu to gold
560 replies of the same argument happening over and over again with two different anons participating. Each side assumes their own priorities take dominance.
Stay beautiful, /a/.
But that's exactly how it works. Nyaa is a sea of shit, so you have to filter out all of the shit (HS, spanish subs, re-encodes, etc.) and capture just the golden nuggets (aka the shows you are following).
Could you make an noragami RSS for me if it's so easy?
>I have a low opinion of Gentoo GNU/Linux.

Though you can always watch it raw I guess.

We had this discussion already. I'll take proper typesetting and good encodes over HS eyecancer shit any day.
All you faggots do is shitting on HS, Coal guys/girls, Commie and Hadena lol
But these are the only groups i usually find on animetrackers and nyaan. Where are these obscure great and top tier anime subbers?? Hm?
Yes, say you wanted to subscribe to FFF on Nyaa, you would use their page: http://www.nyaa.se/?user=73859
When you're on that page, there will be a unique RSS link just for that account. Subscribe to that with torrent software which supports RSS (don't use utorrent or vuze or other proprietary crap when Free Software for torrents exists, like qBittorrent). Then you just create a download rule for the anime you want to automate and select which feed it should come from.
You don't want to subscribe to the entire nyaa feed because say if you subscribed to all of nyaa and had a download rule for the words "noragami", not only would you be download noragami from other release groups but you'd also open yourself up to potential viruses if someone actually released a virus under the name of noragami.
I'm aware, that's why I use parabola.
The first two episodes were pretty good.
Just pick whatever group does it (I separate my feeds by groups because it's cleaner that way). Tweak it if you have to.
I'd go full freedom with Linux-libre if it wasn't for the nouveau drivers sucking.
I prefer incompetence over intentional retardedness.
Not every show Commie does is trollsubs. In fact, most of them aren't.
The serial beater was one of the dumbest plot points I've ever seen.
Commie isn't only bad when it trollsubs.
I think I missed a step in the manual...
Who is FFF, what is the significance of the word 'noragami', and what the hell is going on, and can't I just watch my backlog in peace? I don't want the system to automatically put episodes of new anime on my desktop.
So the url I'd put into the feed should look like?
It's http://www.nyaa.se/?page=rss&user=73859 actually.
>first 15 minutes of the first episode were pretty good.
Fixed that for you.
Yeah, they are unbelievably shit.
Are you still pushing this commie mean? Yes, they've done retarded shit like Eoteans and stuff, but for most shows, the subs are perfectly fine. It certainly beats the hell out of CR eyecancer video with no typesetting.
RSS provides updates and news, RSS downloaders automate downloads.
Yeah, I was just saying you go to the fansubber's page and then click on the RSS link on the top.
This is basically how it can work, 3 feeds subscribed on the left, the updates on the right, download rules on the centered window.
Grandpa stop posting, the nursing home doesn't even have internet.
What makes animeultima the future of streaming? It seems to be slower than the stuff I normally use.
I just found the /g/entoomen that always have loli wallpapers in the desktop threads in their native environment.
It's amazing they work at all really. Reverse engineer graphic drivers must be hell. (Fuck you nvidia.)
I actually have a /m/ wallpaper and I hate desktop threads. But I do crossboard /g/.
...Okay, fuck all this.
If I ever decide that the font of my subtitles is enough of an issue that I need to start downloading instead of streaming, then I'll download it normally.
They do retarded localizations left and right.
And before you call me out on preferring literal translations, you're wrong. I just prefer things that are not retarded over things that are.
Let this be a lesson to all: spoonfeeding retards does not make them any less retarded.
Commie does localize a little more, but it's really not a big deal. Give me a recent example.
Can you really fault me?
Lolis and openbox were meant to be.
>not using regex
It's like you don't like power and flexibility in your filters.
I feel that the video quality is far more important.
So, first you make an account on the one thing, then the other. Then you get the super-secret URL of a random amalgamation of letters that apparently means something and you do the thing with the stuff, and put that into bittorrent. Then you do the other thing, and you get rid of all the spanish dubs or something, and you start downloading any new anime episodes. Then you double click something, and you have the anime that you wanted, and you press the button that does the thing with bittorrent. Then you have a video of cute girls doing cute things, but it's in such high quality that you can see each-and-every pore on their faces. But you don't watch it yet - you then go into the options and click the things in the case of the things with other things. Then it autoplays the anime, and you get dynamic fansubber-choosing.
This probably makes more sense when you're actually doing it, but I'm more confused than I was when I came into the conversation.
>Then you have a video of cute girls doing cute things, but it's in such high quality that you can see each-and-every pore on their faces.
Hint: Just try to do things yourself. It's not that hard.
/a/ makes it seem hard, though...
>Give me a recent example.
I can't. I don't use them.
Which is why I only use HS as last resort.
To the anon asking me about how I know commie does retarded localizations:
It's not rocket science, they did it when I used them, so I decided to stop using them.
Most of commie's staff stays the same, so I have no reason to trust them on getting better.
