Anime Crash Test Dummy

I think this is going to be my big thing for the next few months. I'm going to be looking at various fansubs and seeing what's pretty cool and what sucks.

There will be much suckage, I'm fearing. I haven't seen a lot lately that has me impressed.

So, time to fire up the BitTorrent software and see what's up. Note, I'm going only to post complete series (just in case it's pretty decent at the end), so be warned.

The way torrents are set up, you can't find complete series, at least not for very long. This is going to hamper your search quite a bit.

The fansub consumers usually follow series blow by blow. For example, yesterday Eclipse posted Manabi Straight 06. This morning it had 280 seeds. Downloading Manabi Straight 02, however, is a challenge already.

Try to find a torrent of Azumanga or Mahoraba, see what I mean.

For some reason, outfits like KAA have no difficulty seeding and supporting their torrents of clearly criminal rips of R1 DVDs. Funny how that works.

Which is why I'll probably be posting reviews in stages, a sort of "how is it going so far" thing...
