Default I need proper feedback about buying anime DVDs

There has been something bugging me for a bit now and it has to do with anime fans and purchasing DVDs. To those of you that love an anime because you've already seen the episodes fansubbed, when you one day hear that the anime you like is being licensed, do you honestly find yourself "buying" the anime on DVD? If so, then why, and if not, then why?

I ask because I think fans who've seen an anime online and don't bother buying it once it's licensed and released on DVD may have trouble figuring out all of the benefits of paying $50 as oppose to watching all the episodes streamed/downloaded for free. Fans would ask, "why would I wanna blowout my pocket money on a DVD without extras when I can find all the episodes subbed and dubbed anywhere on the internet without lifting a finger or paying a penny?"

Is that true for any of you guys, or are there other reasons you don't buy enough anime on DVD, if you don't actually buy enough anime on DVD?

Well I currently dont buy anime or manga because I use all my money on comics(not to be confused with manga), video games, civil war bullets, books, and I'm even saving up for a samuria sword from the 18th century. But when I get a real job I plan to give back to all the animes and mangas by buying manga volumes and anime box sets.

Default Re: I need proper feedback about buying anime DVDs

I'd like to have a collection myself and keep it a least for a long time. What if...in the next 50 years, naruto stuff won't be available anymore because it is long over. So, once the stuff is gone, it's gone forever.

I buy all kinds of naruto, other anime, manga stuff.

It's not like you won't be able to DL Naruto.

I haven't bought anything, but I do support Naruto by watching the episodes here (and when I first started reading the manga-- manga by Viz Media). I haven't bought the DVD's for two reasons:

1. I don't want a collection of DVDs. It takes up space.
2. It costs money.

I can eliminate the two reasons by just downloading the episodes.

I buy what I like, that way good anime companies and american distributors stick around, while those I disagree with go out of business.

if we all stopped buying, 5 years from now, there would be less anime made, and less available in the states.

I buy the movies and that's about it. I can't afford to keep buying the DVD boxsets with all the manga and other merchandise that buy. But I do Tivo all the episodes on TV after I've already watched 'em online.

Ya know, you don't neccesarily have to do that. You could just buy anime DVDs/manga that you strongly feel you'll enjoy watching/reading time after time for the next several years to come.

I'd rather have the manga than the anime, so I buy a bunch of manga instead of a bunch of DVDs. Plus, manga is cheaper and is much more portable than anime.

Default Re: I need proper feedback about buying anime DVDs

If I watch an anime online, I save up enough money, and I buy at least 3 or 4 of the DVD's. However, I'm starting to cut back on doing that since they cost a lot, and my parents are upset with me spending so much on them. But, I still try to buy them, but I can only buy so much with my money.

EDIT: I also tend to buy the manga than the anime, since it's cheaper, but it still contirbutes to what I said earlier; there's only so much I can buy, and I try to cut back on my spending with anime/manga related things.

I don't buy Anime DVD's 'cause I can get all of them from the library for free. And I really don't see them being worth as much as they are.

Default Re: I need proper feedback about buying anime DVDs

For starters, I don't like watching it online. For the most part, the only things I watch online is what's not available on DVD. If my library doesn't have a series I like (for instance, The Prince of Tennis) I buy it on DVD. Otherwise I get it at the library (for instance, Naruto). I could have just watched Prince of Tennis online for free, but I want to support Viz and as I said, I hate doing that. Same goes for reading manga.
