Legal anime downloads and viewers

#1 Post by kodama » Fri Jun 20, 2008 8:29 pm

There are now a fair few places that anime can either be downloaded or viewed legally, post them here and you never know there maybe a few gems amongst the shite and fanserve.

I'll start with Vuze, they've got Bubblegum Crisis, Ikki Toussen, Neko Rahmen, Saiyuki Paradise Raiders, Cosmo Warrior Zero, Demon Lord Dante and Riding Bean.

I'm sure you're all aware (if not, you are now) that ADV have been putting Welcome to the NHK on Crunchy Roll to view legally. They add 2 english dubbed episodes every week (Thursday/Friday). I'm hoping for a UK release to get the DVDs since it's been really funny so far.

(Posted it in the wrong place at first somehow o.O - must have not been paying attention)

I've heard some good things about Welcome to the NHK as well. I'll probably give that a look too. :)

The sad thing about crunchyroll, is that it's quite hard to tell what's legimate from what's just been uploaded. I can see that Welcome to the NHK and The Tower of Druaga are provided by distributors. Are there any others?

EDIT: Blassreiter is running and Strike Witches is to premiere on 3/7/08

Gurren Lagann episode 1 stream link here. Just watched this and it looks like it's going to be great. It's dubbed in English and contains adverts throughout, but still worth watching. Actually the adverts made it even better I think :lol: . It's also quite poor quality, but for me it's worked as a great preview. Just need to wait for the dub release DVDs.

I'd have thought they would have region-locked that, Sci-Fi normally restrict viewing shows on their site to people living in the US.
