I was too poor and even then after researching it, the western market does jack shit to help them anyway.

You obviously do. Money trading hands is the foundation of any economy.

Of course it helps, but you have to buy it from japanese sources. And they're expensive as fuck.

I still believe buying DVDs and BDs helps.
it only helps moƩ and ecchi-shit
My exact intentions.

@Emberfire
I never believed that, because I know that localized versions give very little money to the creator. I just want a physical copy in case my External that I've got all my anime on fails. I live on campus, so if it goes, I'm either without anime or have to stream even backlog/rewatch stuff. And it's also convenient to watch stuff with friends, rather than bringing around flash drives or whatever

Probably when I realized most studios don't give a fuck about Western audiences and would rather not even take our non Japanese money

Their product is intended for Japan.

I really don't care if it benefits the industry anymore, as long as I can own the shows I love, which have been next to nothing this year.

Since we're going back to last year, 3 shows out of what? 200+?

Sounds about the ratio one would expect from anything, does it not? Cream rises to the top.

I've always been a very firm believer in "Nothing I personally do impacts anything", so I never believed that to begin with.
Even if my money went to the people who made the anime, it would be an insignificant amount
