Watching anime online

Jigoku

I just discovered recently that you can watch anime via You Tube. I stumbled upon this nugget of a discovery when I was searching episode summaries of Kyou Kara Maou. Man, when I found it my eyes went as big as saucers. Watch anime?? In the office? While surfing? No need to download? Wow!

I'm not very fussy with how I watch the anime – I actually watch anime on a DVD player that plays DIVX files (cool man!).
But have you regretted spending the time and bandwidth downloading some anime? Did you regret buying some of them?

I, for one, regretted buying and downloading Black Cat. The story is not bad, but it's typical shonen fair about an assassin who's now a bounty hunter. It's very Get Backers, actually. But the animation is piss poor. Suprising for Gonzo. But I heard they were low on budget. Is it worth collecting? Not really. You can watch it once, but I wouldn't want to watch it again. But besides that, so far I'm pretty lucky with the anime I've watched. Most of them I love, except for Samurai Deeper Kyo which I found out has a sucky ending and S-cry-ed which has a mind-twisting ending.

So the long story is You Tube allows you to preview anime and then from there you can decide whether to buy them or to, ahem, download them.

After watching Jigoku Shoujo, I decided that one is definitely worth keeping. 🙂 I like it's episodic, "horror of the week" feel. I'll probably end up watching my favourite "revenge" episode.

Noein is probably another one – the animation is superb – but I have not "clicked" with the characters yet. It's important for me to feel for the characters. And it should have a bishonen or two, hehe. But the story looks intriguing.

However, I most probably will watch a few more eps to decide. But seeing how bittorrent is being clamped these days, I probably wouldn't bother downloading it. 😉

    Youtube is when people can submit their own videos to there. Like submitting their own or other amvs. Amv is Anime music video. They can also submit episodes there too, by downloading them selves and placing there for you. Also there are other videos there. It’s really a great site! ^^
