For most normal episodes it's fine, since their usually below the 30 minutes limit. Double, final and special eps can be longer (e.g. Fooly Cooly 6). For OVA's and movies, don't use it or split it. Anything longer than 30 minutes requires the viewer to download their crappy player software.
Downloading out of the box also only works when you have the player installed.

Any one know a good place to download the first season of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei? Anikat has crap quality, censored subs identical to the ones on youtube. I only found one site with BT but it was a 17 gig batch. Any help would be appreciated!
I use cyber 12, I think these are subbed by a.f.k., 175mb files, uses up-file and megaupload.
[a.f.k.]'s releases are (in my opinion) the best you can get for the first season. They might be XviD in .avi, and they're pretty heavily localised for an american market (which doesn't work as well with such a japanese-culture-focused series), but their translation and editting are great.
They have a batch torrent for the first season on their own tracker, as well as individual torrents for episodes 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the second season, after which they dropped the show, and you'll have to go with random crappy anonymous subs for episodes 5-9 and decent volans subs for episodes 10-13. (To be found at the Tosho). For series 2.5 and series 3, just go with [gg] subs, of course. Use the trackers linked to on their website, ctrl+f is your friend. >_>
As for 'censorship', if you're referring to the 'bald guy', he's still on the DVD releases, as far as I know, but don't be annoyed by that, it's not so much meant as censorship as it is another running joke of the series, and he doesn't appear much (if at all) outside of his school clock in the latter seasons.

Yeah, the Bald Guy
Took me a minute to figure out that he was SHAFT's doing. I started the AFK subs for season 1. I'll take what I can get until I start Zan, serves me right for putting it off so long.
Has anyone heard of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (When the Cicadas Cry)? It was recommended to me by a friend who said it was "pretty scary" despite the innocent appearance. I'm considering watching it when I have free time (murder-violence is an compelling genre), but some feedback from people who have seen it would be appreciated.

All of my friends have recommended I watch that too, but I'm stubborn and haven't watched yet
Oh, Higurashi no Naku Koro ni is quite awesome. I wouldn't really call it scary, despite the little girls committing knife-suicides or being tortured in badly lit dungeons by having their nails ripped off and all, though.
The blood and gore is more there to reinforce the suspense, and to give the whole series an unusual mood, mixing happy children's games with paranoia and mystery. But it's only really in the second season, Kai, the "solution" to the story collective if we are to use such a word, that something of a connecting, overbearing story becomes apparent. When all the seperate arcs start to connect, and we get a clear enemy, is when you realise that you haven't really been in the process of watching two seasons of random gory entertainment, but that a masterfully woven tale has been told here, and one that you probably hadn't seen coming, after which everything that happened before suddenly starts making sense.
TL;DR: Yeah, I'd suggest you two watch it.
lol. I'm a manga person first. There are plenty of anime I haven't seen.Originally Posted by Gecko
Not to ruin my reputation <.<
If you guys are gonna watch Higurashi....I recommend you watch Umineko after that >_>. Seriously nobody else around here even watches it -_-
Huh? I find that a lot of people watch Umineko (me included). It's an awesome show, but I haven't come to love it to a similar degree as Higurashi yet.
wha.....nobody posts in the topic, so I assumed nobody watches it lol.
Unfortunately...the anime sucks compared to the Visual Novel because there are loads of things cut out. It worked out with Higurashi because the horror elements were able to carry the entire show. Not so much with Umineko since its much more of a mystery/fantasy.
Seriously at this rate the anime won't any sense to people who only watch that
didnt like umi that much , but Higurashi was good. umi s voice acting put me off in the ffirst place, the kid(girl)was too annoying
