Just finished Hyouka. Was good, but I'd of preferred a different ending.
I don't really understand the "no streaming" elitist thing.
My view on it is I don't care if people stream. If that's what they like, then whatever. For me streaming is more of a hassle. My internet is slow, which results in buffering and just overall delayed viewing. Whereas with downloading, I never have to wait once I get that first series. I can download while I sleep, during the day when I don't need the extra bandwidth, or even while I'm watching that first series I downloaded.
Then there's the biggest deal for me, which is the quality. I'm not going to find a 1080p stream. And if I somehow did find one, I wouldn't be able to watch it. At least not for a significant amount of time because my horrendous internet has to buffer the episode. Once the series is downloaded I can skip/load episodes instantly, skip forward or back within a episode, and so on. That's not happening with my internet on a stream.
Plus, I also like the fact that it's on my computer. I can go back to it and load up a episode any time I want.

Well, Chocolate is done.
Was kind of hoping Vice President or Poorfag would of won the Ojima Roll. Oh well.
Tatami Galaxy is hard to follow. They speak so fast and the subs move at like 2 lines a second. Couldn't find a download that wasn't FLAC either and so now the video colors mess up.
This was a bad idea. Gonna watch Welcome to the NHK or something instead.
Color messing up might be a problem with your player. I use media player classic and the K-lite codec pack and never seem to have any issues. I know once I started downloading 10-bit anime vlc couldn't play it, at least not by itself, and all I would get was sound and a green screen.
Using MPC too but haven't downloaded the codec pack. Just watched Binbougami and everything was fine. The only difference between this file and all the other 10bit BDs he has is that this one is FLAC instead of mkv, and since Skelington really doesn't know about this stuff that sounds like the best scapegoat. And he's not really sure how to describe it, but it's whatever this is
Only said color because two of the times it turned red.

Yeah, I don't know much about it either. There's some player, cccp or something along those lines, that I constantly see get recommended for watching anime with. Never bothered though since I've yet to have any issues with my current one.
Finished my latest batch of downloads so I started adding torrents of the rest on my list. About 500 gigs lol. That's going to take me months to finish.
My biggest problem with downloading is my upload is so slow that I always kill my ratio on torrent sites by just downloading 1-2 series. Quality wise, I don't see the big difference. Maybe because I found a really good streaming site but I watch anime streamed on my 27" LCD TV and have no issues with quality.
I really don't care if someone else prefers downloading to streaming. I probably would as well if I had a better net connection and more HD space. I just don't understand when people talk down to others simply because they prefer streaming sites. We are all fans of anime right? Who cares how someone else watches it.
& also if there is a day where the site has some traffic, I do what Skizzit said and leave the video to load whilst doing something else
