I need more information. Which Firewall are you using and what do you mean with download on animesuki? Downloading the .torrent file or the movie file through a BT client? The first should be possible with an active firewall anyway (unless you messed up the configuration bad time). If it is a BT problem, then you should allow the executable of the client to connect whenever it wants (you should have gotten a pop up whenever the program wanted to connect to the internet; choose allow next time)
The risk is normally very small IF you got the client from a legit source (read: without trojans etc) and IF you are running an Antivirus and Antitrojan program in the background. Make sure you only allow programs to access the internet from which you know that it is safe!

That did not happen in this case because _Sin_ is so boring that he never even had a signature to remove anyway. So why is this text here? To attract attention of course - isn't that what a signature is for?
You can still find my Azureus Download Guide here

By all means, make sure to read this.
