The real tragedy in all this is not that an illegal streaming site went down (like what's so "horrible", to quote some Twitter users, about a illegal site going down?) but that another one will pop up within a month or two. Regarding the legal / illegal debate, I don't know why you would need to pirate anime today, not in America / Australia / EU at least (while in no way condoning their acts, I get that anime fans in like Kyrgyzstan have a tricky time to get hold of anime legally). I've got more than enough to watch through legit channels, I still haven't watched some stuff I bought in late 2018 and I keep buying new stuff all the time (thus there is always "unwatched" stuff in my shelf). Then you got all the legal streams which fills up the "gaps" left by home releases, so I really don't see the "need". Except saving cash of course, which is a **** reason to be honest.
