Okay my fellow anime fans. What's your way of doing things with episodes you've downloaded. This'll mostly only apply to those of us who watch non dubbed stuff... Anyway, do you hoard episodes just to say you have them all so you can watch them again later? Or do you delete the episodes as you watch them? If you're the first type do you actually get around to watching it again?I myself do a bit of both, if I like it I hang onto it only twice have I ever gone back to watch something I've already seen. Well, not counting when I re-dl'd the entire thing to watch it again.

I'm usually pretty lazy so they sit around on my hard drive until I run out of space then I go through and do a mass deletion. I have watched several series multiple times if I have enjoyed them enough. Also lately I like to watch streaming anime while I'm at work and on the work pc where I can't download stuff :) Heck I've even started watching streaming at home just because it's so much faster than bit torrent. In the old days the quality of streaming was really awful, but now there are really nice dvd quality streaming sites available out there like veoh.com :) plus it saves my harddrive and I can just bookmark the link to it if I want to rewatch it :) (assuming the file doesn't get removed before then heh)

I like veoh but with the quality comes hdd usage:P Most of the films on veoh are 100MB+ for 20 minutes and it's really better to find direct download page for anime and download it there for as long as I want;)

It's not serious, I was just curious what everyone else did and thought it'd make for a discussion.

Usually I try to find all my stuff online, so I can go back and watch it later, even if it's in pieces. This can be difficult with sites like YouTube deleting things left and right, though. I've watched several good anime online in spite of this. When it comes to downloaded stuff, I keep almost everything. I can't bear to delete stuff I've enjoyed. The only things I delete are full length movies after I've burned them onto DVD since they take up so much space. I just put My Neighbor Totoro on DVD yesterday, it's such a cute movie!

I could never watch things on youtube, well anime shows, amv's are okay. I just find everything too squashed together to make subtitles legible and the quality goes to snot if you try to use the full screen button. I haven't seen Totoro, but I've heard about it. Most recent one I grabbed, burnt, and deleted would have to be The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Which gets a place in fandom (mine anyway) as being one of the four movies/series to have made me cry. ^_^;

I always keep anime episodes I download and archive them on dvds when the series is completed... The only anime I watched on a streaming site is Haruhi Suzumiya, but I downloaded it after that:P You know, some say for the true anime fan watching anime in such quality you can't enjoy animation to the foolest is a crime xD Seriously, one of my friend went "No, Anna_
