The problem here is, how do I make sure to compensate the #Anime creators? I guess I'll do the same as I did back in my fansub days: buy legal videos (DVDs now) of my favorites and pick up some merch here and there.
Frankly I'd rather just use a streaming service. It's too bad Crunchyroll is going through some kind of of corporate BS right now, but the forums there are full of angry paying customers, like myself, threatening to leave.
RE: alternative streaming services to Crunchyroll:
1. HiDive is OK, but their library is limited
2. Funimation has some of the same corporate-who-cares-about-the-customers issues as Crunchyroll, plus their video compression sucks; bad for anyone with a bandwidth cap like myself
3. There is no number 3
