Bought Appleseed, Howl's Moving Castle, Steamboy and Ghost in the Shell:Stand Alone Complex during the last month. It occurred to me that I could have downloaded and watched them before buying just to make sure they were any good (Appleseed and Howl are great, I'll watch Steamboy tonight). Now I don't know about the rest of you, but I tend to try and support the producers of my manga and anime as and when I can. If nothing else it keeps me on the right side of the law if my computer ever gets scrutinized.
So how many of you try to do the same?
