Title. Does Hulu normally have the Funimation simulcasts or have the past couple seasons just been doubles where both Hulu and Funimation have the rights like how CR and Funimation sometimes do?

I wanted to watch noragami since it premiered two days ago in Japan but unfortunately CR didn't the rights Funimation did, and since I can never get their site to work/hate it when i finally get it work I went to Hulu since at least last Season they had Unbreakable Machine Doll, Freezing, and Tokyo Ravens. So far I've been unable to find it on Hulu, even though it's supposedly up on Funimations site. So does anyone know if Hulu normally has Funimations simulcasts or have both websites/companies just has rights the last couple seasons? Or is there some delay from Funimations site to Hulu i don't know about?

Thanks in advance for any answers and insight.

I don't think Hulu licenses any anime, Funimation puts their own stuff there: http://www.hulu.com/companies/funimation

I can't find Norigami though, or any of their other simulcast series except Space Dandy. The first episode of Norigami is on the Funimation website, as well as first episodes for several of their other simulcast series. I'm not sure if there's just a delay in them putting them up on Hulu, or if they're not doing that anymore, or what though.

Probably a delay. Unbreakable Machine-Doll and BlazBlue had brief delays being out up last season(in fact it was the delay for BlazBlue that caused me to miss it and pick up Outbreak Company on CR instead, and from what I've heard of BlazBlue I should be thanking FUNi for that delay).

Yeah, from their forums it sounds like they're just not entirely prompt with getting things on Hulu.

I don't think all their titles make it too Hulu... but I haven't really checked and compared either. But i'd suspect a bit of a delay, probably wouldn't be there right away. Probably a couple weeks if not longer delay.

They did? I guess I'm just horrible with keeping track of when new anime is supposed to start. Well thanks for the answers guys I guess I'll give em another day or two since i can't even get the FunI site to work

They always put their new shows up on Hulu, it's just a matter of waiting. It could be a couple of days, but I also wouldn't be surprised if it takes a week. Once they get the first episodes up on hulu, then the following episodes should go on hulu the same day they go on Funimation.com. It's only at the start of the simulcasts that there is this long delay between the two sites.

I have been wondering this too! I wanted to watch Noragami and D-frag! But only Space Dandy is on Hulu so far.
