Pet peeve about anime: bootlegs. How to recognize a bootleg- Chinese and English subtitles, wrong art work, totally made up studio name, too cheap to be true prices. I hate them because if you're going to bootleg anime, don't pay money for it, idiots. That's a total rip off! And no, being sold in a comic store or on eBay is not a guarantee of authentic anime. Here are several FAQs on anime piracy. Try DVDpricesearch before buying a boot. Also, legit stores like rightstuf often have great discount sales. I once got the whole series of Princess Nine from ADV for $15. If you learn how to frigging shop, you won't get ripped off! And that's the word.
