He's from Texas so he's from America. It's okay to download Asian dramas, movies, and music as long as they're not licensed in America. I'd stay away from licensed anime (mostly by funimation), American music, and American movies. I got a warning for downloading one episode of the anime "Soul Eater" a year ago when it was still airing. Found out it got licensed by Funimation. My ISP just gave me a warning since it was still airing. As long as it's not getting licensed in your country they can't do anything.

Is downloading episodes safe?

Post by caff0987 » Dec 13th, '11, 06:49

I've never tried downloading episodes and I'm just wondering if they cause any viruses or causes any weird things in your computer like slowness or pop-ups. Does anyone have good or bad experiences with downloading?

most likely safe (99%) if you downloading from trust site & uploader, never download or open if episode file is .exe/.com/.url.

so far i dont have bad experience when downloading tvshow/dorama
ask your friends for reference site if you want download something :)

UTorrent and Bittorent are the most commonly recommended clients for filesharing (on PCs, at least). Don't use a client that is "Beta" version or "experimental". Always read the information/FAQs provided when installing your client.

Invest in a really good (real time if possible) anti-spyware/malware/virus program. Just make sure you tick the "exception to firewall" box in preferences, or nothing will get through.

I'm sure you'll find the biggest annoyance will be ISPs that throttle your bandwith, especially for uploading.

How about one this site? I want to watch "Furuhata Ninzaburo" but I'm not sure if this is a safe place to download the episodes.

only if you are in Japan.

and the new law only applies to content available on media (dvd/cd/bluray), tv shows which have not been released on dvd/bluray are not included.

From where are you downloading, which country?
Have you gotten any warnings till now?!
In general I don't think "Begin Japanology" shouldn't be a problem
