      I feel like there are so many platforms out there now that you can find anime on, that it makes it really difficult to choose where you watch your shows. Of course you have the mainstream animes that you will probably find on easy sites like Hulu and Netflix, to which you probably already have an account to (or are mooching off of someone elses account). But that isn't really enough to quench your thirst for all the great anime out there!

      That when it comes down to the real question of legal or illegal. With sites like KissAnime, Anime Heaven, and Anime Season, it isn't very hard to find what you want on one of the torrent streaming sites. But unless you have some super high speed internet and expert pop up blocker, it can be a hassle to get your show to load and keep your computer virus free. That's just my opinion though.

      Then you have your legal sites, to where you can watch episodes for free at the cost of long ads and late airings. But if you go with the paid subscription, then you get ad-free, currently airing shows for your 10-15 dollars a month. Sites like Crunchyroll, VRV, Rooster Teeth, Funimation, and the likes all offer subscriptions; but it really is hard to choose what you like the best. Any thoughts on which route is the best to take for your anime watching needs?

      Personally I use 9anime. Kissanime had to many pop-up viruses for me to continue there.

      But I feel rather guilty about it sometimes. When I was younger I guess I had the excuse of being broke.

      Might look into signing up for Crunchyroll, I wonder if it has all the recent shows being played. And how long does it take for eng sub episodes to get on the platform.

      Not too sure how long the eng subs take on Crunchyroll, but it definitely has a lot of the recent shows up on it and does simulcasts for the really popular ones (shows pop up on the site a few hours after they air in Japan). I am currently a Premium member on Crunchyroll, so if you wanted to try it out and see what it's like, you can use my 48 hour guest pass code: Q9CMJAC5KC8

      I have 2 more codes if you wanted those too, so that would give you almost a full week of anime streaming ad free. Just let me know :)

      When I was younger and broke, I just torrented what I wanted from pirate bay and places like that.

      But now that I have money? I stream mine from either Netflix or Crunchyroll. I don't mind paying for the services at all. I get what I need/want from those places and its cheaper than cable television.

      I use Crunchyroll from time to time but I have found fb pages that upload anime content for a day and then they delete it so if I'm feeling a little cheap that's how I get my anime!

      Thanks, I hope that code can be used multiple times. Someone probably already snagged it lol
