Love Funi- Love my cheap box sets <3
Finally getting us some decent dubs again, while mainly watch subs this is very important to get new people into anime

Like CR- Like the simulcasting and how they are making anime more popular
gets taken down a notch due to numerous problems with this website.

Neutral with Netflix-Like how they are funding anime, however their lack of simulcasting is beyond stupid.
Honestly, best shot of making anime more mainstream, but they lack a real anime community like CR/Funi have.
Best video player easily, others can learn here.

kinda dislike Amazon- They unnecessarily break up anime streaming rights further without adding anything new, although with Anime Strike gone, they have gone from horrible to a minor annoyance.

Irrelevant- HiDive- Still have found no reason to even bother to look at their website.
Also Irrelvant- Hulu- Also have found no reason to use their website.

Counterpoints:

HIDIVE - The least expensive service, especially while their $3.99 per month subscription price (guaranteed for 2 years) is still available. Also more valuable if one is into dubs. Also the only place to legally stream The Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

Hulu - Most relevant for anyone with no subscriptions to other services, since they have a sampling from each. If like me, you are subbed to all the other services, then only for Viz-licensed anime (and occasional things like the SAO II and Kill la Kill dubs they had months before CR*, and the final chapter of Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin they are slated to have on May 5). Thankfully, I also subscribe to them for non-anime material, much like Netflix.


*I still find it odd there has been no announcement CR has these. Did someone at Aniplex forget to okay the news?

FUNimation, Crunchyroll and Discotek are the best ones. They release most of their stuff with great care. FUNi dubs 99% of their stuff and they are 90% of high quality. Discotek has a lot of great older titles.

Nozomi is great because they are putting lots of effort in their gundam releases.

Sentai is a mix bag. Their releases are quite barebones beyond premium releases. They have too many sub-only releases. Many shows of theirs should have been dubbed. Their dubs are hit or miss. Yellow subs on anything but hidive.

Aniplex I dont like them beyond their dubs. I can't buy any of their shit without thinking Im being stupid.

Pony Canyon is the worst of them all. I hope they disappear.

No simulcasting, unaware if they have dubs, worst tos I've seen.

I like CR, don't particularly care about Funi or HiDive, routinely get annoyed by Amazon's shit streaming schedule and quality, and dislike Netflix's propensity to sit on shows for an entire season (especially in the US).
