Are you the type who just can't bring him/herself to delete anime until you start getting those messages from your computer telling you it's had its fill? Or do you watch once, then delete, like a consciencious supporter of the industry?
Me? I usually have to first decide if it's a series where I'll have to watch any given episode more than once to follow the nuances of the story [see: FMA, Last Exile, etc.] or if the story's simple enough that I can watch once, then delete [see: Bleach, etc.]. Usually, if it's the former and I decide I don't want to shell out the big bucks for the dvds, I'll burn the episodes to disc at some point. Though there have been times when I've neglected to do this and regretted it later [I'm re-downloading RahXephon as we speak dry.gif]

All I have kept is the entire FMA series. Everything else is a watch-and-delete business. I have a 32 GB hard drive, so sacrifices such as these must be made until I can get off my lazy backside afford another one.

I don't even have a DVD burner or anything because I'm too cheap to buy one. All the anime I want burned is relayed to my little brother, who does all the re-downloading and burning for me. biggrin.gif

i don't believe in supporting the american distributers of anime, so therefore i either burn em or keep em on my comp and keep buying more hard drives; as i have no problem supporting the nice people at maxtor. my newest 2 system raid setup has 5 terrabytes so i don't foresee having to delete for a long time.....

I haven't had this problem yet, but I will soon. I am going to copy the files to cds in case I wanna watch them later. I would delete it if I didn't like or something though, but that would suck to wait for something to finally finish downloading and then it sucks...I am lucky enough to not have had this happen so far.

It depends on the anime. FMA I kept for a while and just recently finished copying everything to CD. With Naruto, I watch and delete. With Bebop, I watch and delete. With the Inuyasha Movies (got those more recently), I have watched and still have for the moment, but I'm buying the DVD for movie 3 and when I do that, I can delete it off my computer.

I keep series I like and write them onto CD-R's but, if it's worth watching but not keeping, it's a watch'n'delete.

yeah, it depends on the series. FMA gets to stay on my computer, and will probably be the only series that will get to. i'm burning off Bleach right now, and i've already burned off Prince of Tennis, Hikaru no Go, Samurai Champloo, and some others. after Bleach, i need to start burning off Yakitate!! Japan and FMP! TSR. for series i don't think are quite worth burning or don't think i'll go back and watch, like Inuyasha and Naruto, i watch and delete.

I burn them in CD-Rs. But for super long series like Naruto, I just delete after watching.

FMA I burnt most of to CD-R's. But in the process I lost episodes 1-2 and 27-28. 30-something through 51 are still on my old HDD.

I keep animes because I know after awhile I'll want to watch them again.

It depends on what it is. I still have FMA on the 'puter and it's been there since November. Most I watch and delete but if its something I'll watch again than I'll keep it. I would like to get a DVD burner since I am poor and can no longer afford to buy alot of anime. It would also be nice to just lounge on the couch and watch it instead of in the 'puter chair.

I still have lots of room on the hardrive so that's not really an issue with me.
