I burn everything because I can always share them with my friends or else there is someone out there I can trade with. Whenever there is a sale on CD-R's I jump and buy as many as I can. Who knows, maybe 5 years from now I will have the urge to watch a show that never got licensed.

I watch and keep it on my HDD until I need more room, then I delete. I hate the idea of burning CDs and having a crap load of CDs everywhere. Besides, if I really like a series I'll buy it (eventually). I d/l to see what is good enough for me to consider buying so I don't waste money on something I don't like. Also watching an hour or two of anime helps me unconciously improve my Japanese

short animes: I watch them, then burn them and delete them from my pc
long animes: I usually keep the eps on my pc until I need more room, then I delete

Those that I watch, I delete when I can comfirm that there isn't any season two or followup.

Those that I like, I burn them on cdr.

Those that I love... I buy them on DVD.

I feel the same way. I'm a pack rat, so if I went to the trouble to download it, I'm keeping it. I'm running into a little problem though. I've filled up about 300GB of HD space, and I'm out of room for new stuff. And the thought of burning that all to CD gives me the willies. I wish I had the money for a good DVD burner.

I saw a LG 4X DVD burner near where I live costing $130 CDN, which is about $80 US

I don't have a DVD burner so I can only save em onto a CD-R, which as you may know holds only a couple of episodes at most. I would end up spending way too much on CD-R's to save series on to disc so I only save the ones I really really like.

Otherwise I watch and delete.

What do you do?
Same thing.

As long as the series is something I liked enough to download all of, I'll burn it.

Thus far, I think I've deleted three series after the first episode, and five due to licensing mid-cycle while the episodes were still on my drive.
Everything else has been most thoroughly burninated to CD.

I watch and delete crappy animes. Recently I deleted Lord of Lords Ryu Knight as it way too childish for me to enjoy.

I burned them on to CD-R, since I'm not DL that many anime anyway, plus I only download those that I really really like. I'm using dial-up, so I would only DL an anime if it REALLY worths my time.

I watch and burn to cd-r's. I agree that i took to time to download it, and since my connection isn't great, i feel the need to keep my anime i downloaded***pets his computer for the tons of hours it stays on for his enjoyment*** Series i don't like i delete before it's done because i won't watch crap, too much to watch without wasting time on crap. I like to keep the cd-r's as backup or to let my friends watch or trade with. Like others, if i really like the series, i will buy the dvd's(i own 190+dvd's all R1).

Too bad i enjoy Lord of Lords, the one i hated and deleted after watching 7eps of it's crap was Maburaho. A couple of other series i deleted too but i can't remember them right now.

The one anime that got me too actually watch all it's crap was E's Otherwise, man they did a good job at hinting it could be actually good. By the time the series showed it was going to be nothing but crap i was too far into it and had to see at least what outcome it might have. Now if they make a season 2 and explain all the crap that wasn't in season 1, then i might forgive the show, but i don't see that happening. Guhy that show diguised itself well.

I most likely delete everything unless I really like the anime, then I just keep it on my HD...
Yeh, I know it may be dangerous, but I'm too lazy to burn it on CDs...
Gotcha do it on DVD somedays, perhaps.

Hmm, guess I'm not the only one who thinks that. This is the exact same reason why I burn everything, good or bad.

basically it depends on the quality of the show

If i really liked it : i go out and buy them on DVD

If it was ok, enjoyable : burn on CD

If was was awfull, i delete them (this doesn't happen too often as i haven't found too much shows that i really hated)

Off course there is always the storage problem so maybe i should get my hands on a DVD burner
