No I am not. By renting, you still have a actual copy of a dvd, but are also helping the industry as well.

Also, the reason I chose not to pay for online anime is because I have a dvd player and I don't feel like watching advertisements as well. Although I occasionally watch anime here or on Funimation, I typically only watch anime via television of dvd.

Also I never said I "mainly". Yes I do rent, but I've also bought the complete series of Karin, Comic Party and have also purchased several other series.

If you have a dvd player, why pay large amounts of cash to watch anime online? Netflix costs $4-5 a month and there is a wide selection of anime. But more than anything, its a personal preferance.

Epic troll. Crunchyroll's subscription service costs as little as $5/month, and you get streaming anime on-demand instead of having to wait for a DVD to arrive via snail-mail (and you get anime 30 minutes after it airs in Japan, not 6-9 months later when the DVD comes out). Also, you don't have to sit through ads if you pay for a membership...
