I'm casual enough to have only recently begun to detest streaming and start hoarding my shows, so how many terabytes does your collection waste?
I still stream. Legal high quality whenever possible.
Makes it harder to rewatch favorites, especially ones that you talk about often and might be compelled to rewarch more often, but yeah, I don't archive fucking everything I watch every season. That would be dumb. It would easily be multiple terrabytes most of which would just sit there and never be used. I just archive some of my personal favorites.
The e-peen dick waving stuff is ridiculous for anime fans though. It's like being the coolest kid in special ed or something. I also use MAL for keeping track of what I'm watching each season and stuff I'm working on in the backlog, but again, I don't maintain a list. I remove things from it when I'm done with them and don't rank anything. That shit's weird.
Same thing happened to me while back. Here for you brother
AT the moment I have a bunch of external HDs with a total of 8 Tb. They're nearly full. Oh and I limit my downloads to 720p resolution (no point in 1020 for 95% of stuff at the moment anyway) - storage is cheap, but not that cheap
If you really did you wouldn't have caught up on your backlog so trivially. Of course you might just be unemployed and living in your parents basement, in which case I'm sorry for the earlier and you have my condolences
>wasting your space on that shit when you could be doing some actual creative work with it
