>There have been about 4.4 million views of ERASED thus far through this illegal anime streaming site. If we apply the revenue per viewer, the Japanese creators of ERASED would have earned somewhere between $77,500 - $310,000 if the viewers of this site had legally streamed the show.

Am I supposed to feel bad for supporting jews make off with all that money?
>tfw I've downloaded Kyoanus's newest shitshow hundreds of times, effectively driving the fuckers to the brink of bankruptcy
Feels good saving anime.
This is the same argument the RIAA made like ten fucking years ago, assuming everyone who pirates media had the option to buy it.
To reiterate we literally have no choice to see current anime as it airs besides torrenting, plebstream, or crunchyroll (paid plebstream). The thing is that CR does not give money direct to studios but to the publishers and TV Tokyo (and keeps the rest for themselves), so it is entirely a false pitch they're shilling saying you're helping the industry with their shit.
To boot the pricing model nips use for BDs is simply not applicable to how the rest of the world works and so it is a tough sell. I recall years back they did indeed used to sell BDs at more reasonable prices in foreign markets but then stopped because the otaku in Japan were just buying those foreign versions and having them shipped back to Japan. It's hard to think of something that I would feel fine with giving money to unless I know for sure it helped studios directly but doesn't cost ridiculiusb sums like BDs. The industry makes olenty of revenue but studios get buttfucked how it is unless they own the license for the series. The model is broken and only fucking barely works in Japan itself to prevent studios from dying outright, what makes then think it'll function here?
>Implying nips care about non-US foreign customers.
I'm an Argie, BDs doesn't come here, we don't have Amazon.
We are 50 volumes behind on translations. For example, One Piece manga, an entrance level thing, has barely started Skypea.
The only LN which was licensed here is Haruhi, and it sells like shit.
And we are still the best market for japanese stuff in South America.
What can I do other than pirating?
>"People calling themselves "fans" are watching anime then they complain about low quality, shows not getting second seasons or wondering why moe or idol trash shows keep getting made.
Does this retard not realize that many of the people who subscribe to Crunchy Roll and Funimations simulcast services also watch these sorts of shows on it?
Not that it matters since domestic DVD/Blurays are all that Japan cares about.
>"SUBSCRIBE TO CRUNCHY ROLL IF YOU WANT GOOD ANIME TO BE MADE AGAIN!"
SAO was Crunchy Rolls most popular show when it was airing, I think they're doing more harm than good.
>Oh no, Boku Dake (12 eps) might have lost the cost of 3 episodes because pirates
>Oh no, Sakura Trick (12 eps) might have lost half the cost of a single episode because people are bullies
>Oh no, One Piece (700+ eps) might have lost the cost of 10 episodes because of torrents
>Because of course Legal Streaming sites will give all the money they earn to the studios, it's not like they are for-profit companies who doesn't care about the industry.
