If I enjoyed the show enough, when (if) it got a US license I bought it. We didn't have sites like Netflix, Hulu, or Crunchyroll back in the early 2000's, so we did what we had to. I get that they want to cut down on piracy, anyone with substantial IP wants to do the same, however, I think they'll run into the same problems the RIAA and MPAA ran into here in the US with anti-piracy laws and actions...no one will care enough to actually stop.

Like, nobody's doing anything with the El-Hazard property, so I don't feel bad if I go on a streaming site to watch it there. Because even IF I bought a legal disc, the company who originally licensed the property isn't going to get any of that money, so if they're not getting money either way, why should I bother?
