Don't get me wrong I like crunchyroll and have no intention of dropping it. It is just Crunchyroll does not have everything and I have been wondering what else is out there to see. I am only looking for legal sites here I feel anime fans should support anime if they want good stuff to continue to be made and released.

I have already tried netflix and looked at hulu plus they don't measure up really. Either because of lack of new stuff or the fact they still shove adds into there stuff.

Unless you go to Funimation or VIZ, I don't know of any other "legal" sites. Below are sites that use embedded videos, and are more than likely NOT LEGAL.

Just a forewarning- I've read all the privacy policies on these sites and none of them have legal rights to stream videos. Mod edit: So I won't be posting them, will I?



P.S.- If you come across another legal site like CrunchyRoll, please let me know.

yeah that is a list of sites that i can find in about any google search and am totally not intersted in. Looked at funimation and they really do not give much for going premium as far as i can tell maybe someone else who knows more could tell me otherwise. Have not checked out viz media to see what they have yet.

theanimenetwork.com ... maybe? but legally, maybe you'll never find it, because each site has his own anime and lacks some generes to their repertoire, and you need to be in the USA to use this site

Don't link to websites which have no legal right to be streaming videos.

well other than Viz and Funimation there's Niconicocom and Theanimenewtork.com and I think animenewsnetwork still has streaming rights to some shows. outside the US I know there's a few for the UK and one for France I think but I can't remember the names. and as for Funimation's premium subscription it doesn't have all their shows but they do add the dubbed versions of their shows the day they're released for sale on site.

I agree, having experienced their trial offer, that Funimation premium doesn't offer a whole heck of a lot that you can't get there free. If you really hate ads though, it does rid you of that. If you prefer dubs to subs, then that's also something you'll have access to with a premium membership. Also a few special-type episodes or clips (such as might have been on the DVD version of a series).

really it gets rid of ads? because as near as i could tell i was still getting them from that hulu player they were using for the very short while i tried it. I would strongly prefer sites that do not give ads for subscribers. Other details such as sub vs dub don't care as long as there is some form of english involved I can interpret.

I tried it just recently. The "Elite" membership (which costs about $8 per month IIRC) gave me access without the Hulu ads. I personally did not like the player they use though (when it's without the ads they don't use the Hulu player but something else)--anything you want to do except pause while playing requires you to leave full-screen (since when I'm watching episode after episode of a series, I like to fast forward past the OP and EP, that was annoying).

Hulu has two form of ads - the short 30 second ones and the full 2 minutes one. The latter is "rare" to get, at least in my experience but if you ever get to chose one of the two, go for the latter. It gives you time to grab a drink before viewing and not have your viewing interrupted. Also, Funimation's site doesn't have ads in the video at all IIRC. The same goes for TheAnimeNetwork although most of their shows require membership to view - I think they're changing their model now so most of their popular simulcasts are free to view as long as you have a registered account.
