    Default Support the creators challenge

    In todays time there's a lot of legal ways to stream series compared to how it has been in the past. You have sites such as Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Netflix who all bring you legally licensed shows to watch (usually for a pretty small fee)

    However despite using the above services I still try to support the creators by buying physical copies of at least 2 series a year. It's a small number I know but DVD's are expensive and BluRays are worse.

    So I challenge you (when your budget can afford it) to support the creators. There's no forum based reward in this challenge other than you showing your favorite series creators some extra love and hopefully they'll keep making great things!

    My plans this year are to finally buy:
    -Clannad After Story set
    -Guilty Crown set

    Does buying a Japanese copy counts as well?

    I'm currently obsessed with a game and I've bought all of their official manga anthologies, despite not knowing the language at all.

    And not only that, aside from illegally reading manga (AKA reading scanlations), I also purchase manga copies. I have more than 500 copies of manga in different titles, published legally in my country, purchased since before I was even born since my sister was a manga enthusiast way back before I am.

    I like buying DVD's (when I can) because I just like the thought of owning a copy of the show that I can watch whenever I want without worry about it being taken down, the website being down, internet issues, ect. So far I have a lot of anime I've been gathering for a few years now (since I got my first job), and I've bought a lot of manga. I prefer buying and reading manga as apposed to finding it online (I really hate reading thing online).

    A great attitude to have @blueangel06661 I'm lucky enough to work in an electronics store that sells a good range of anime. I get staff discount (though they are still pricey) so I buy quite a bit :-)
    I also have a paid subscription to AnimeLab and Crunchyroll. I refuse to illegally obtain any media, because if nobody bought hard copies of movies, CD's and games I'd be out of a job!

    I can't really buy DVDs (hard to find in stores + too pricey for someone saving up solely on allowance and birthday/christmas cash) so I just buy manga to support the creators. I have quite a bit, too...

    -15 volumes of Black Butler (dedication, yo. plus I read new chapter scanlations every month, so yeah)
    -1 volume of Deadman Wonderland (really want to get more, rip wallet)
    -Negiho! Mahora Little Girls (1-volume Negima! spin-off; I basically got this because it came with stickers xD)
    -1 volume of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's (this was at my school book fair, believe it or not)

    My library also has TONS of manga in the teen section and some in the children's section, I've read and finished a lot of manga that way, too (though one series I had to finish through scanlations because they only had up to volume 6...)

    Awesome GIF by me. <3

    I see all, I know all.

    Not only I've opted to purchasing my favorite CD album, buying the manga and support free games by buying DLCs, I also decided to stop buying bootleg figurines and went to buying original ones, and also their merchandises.

    I have so much more than I have posted on the attachment. :') The itabag is of my Touken Ranbu fandom. I'll be making a Free! soon when I have the time to.

    This is a major point. I know official figures costs $$$ too so making sure that they are official merchandise is also a very good (and hard thing to do) Keep it up.

    Thanks. I have a small business by importing these goods to my country, so I know well where to get originals, in a fair price too. ;3 Also, if I couldn't get an item in a new condition, I'd opt to second-hands. You would have no idea how Japan categorizes their "used products". It's all mostly unsealed products but the contents are in tip top shape.

    Same thing towards CDs, books, etc. Even better if they still have the bonus from the CDs, DVDs, books, etc. yet they only lose the plastic wrapping.

    It's how you can manage for your hobby. :'D I could recommend sites on where to get original merchandises and if you're opting for second-hand goods, exactly where I get my stuff from.

    Taken off my IG, I was too impatient to wait for a second-hand because I wanted to get the exclusive poster.

    I considered buying Naruto light novels out of desperation, but since they'll translate them to English, I'll just be patient. XD

    I pay for crunchyroll, and netflix. I do read scanlations of manga I like, but after one volume I generally attempt to buy it, especially if I really like it. I have youtubed things I wanted to watch (more so in past). Generally I will buy things I love (anime more so) and usually will also attempt to get a signed copy.
