Hotaru isn't fat, at all. In fact, it's a miracle how not-fat she is. Her metabolism must be like that of a hamster, which would explain why she's constantly brimming with energy.
What's wrong with streaming? Some streams can be pretty high quality (720p or better) and it's faster if you just want to watch an episode or two in between your normal activities rather than binge an entire series.
Not saying you're shit for preferring torrents, I'm just saying that streams have their benefits.
Most torrent clients can do chronological downloads, and then you can just preview the file while it downloads.
The benefit of streaming - less waiting, combined with the quality of rips.
