A couple of years ago, I used to have a Hulu Plus account, but I cancelled my subscription because all I really wanted to watch was anime, and at the time, Hulu didn't have much to offer. So I went to Crunchyroll for obvious reasons.
Anyway, a few days ago my friend and I were watching shows on his Hulu account when I found myself perusing through the anime category to see what they had to watch. To my surprise, I saw that they had a lot of anime available....ALOT of anime. I didn't even get to see the end of the list because my friend wanted to watch "Hellsing" as I passed over it. Anywho, a lot of the shows they had were not available on neither Crunchyroll nor Netflix (as I have a Netflix account, as well.) As much as I love Crunchyroll, and as much as I hate Hulu's commercial ads, I get the feeling that I may have jumped the gun a bit and I am starting to have second thoughts about Crunchyroll.
I would like to get other people's feedback on which is the best site to watch anime and why. Thanks

If you want to watch all anime, then go find a pirate site. If you want a Legal site, then stick with Crunchyroll of Funimation
Crunchyroll is still growing and adds new sub anime quite often along with manga too.
Funimation is pretty popular and adds new Dub anime quite often, along with subs.

Your call in the end which is popular or not. But for me, Crunchyroll is your best bet

well, crunchyroll is the story of a fan driven, illegal streaming site that went legal and has been building an empire while grinding up to where it is today and where it'll be tomorrow
hulu is just a rich, media giant so acquiring things isn't exactly hard for them
the difference between hulu and CR is massive though in their goals:
hulu wants to monopolize with a cold, cash filled hand, and crunchyroll has intentions of building community, supplying better business plans, and having a more sincere(because they actually care) staff for the medium that is anime/drama/manga
CR is IMO better than hulu for their care and methods of doing things. About things that hulu has access to that CR doesn't, hulu has a lot more money, as mentioned, to not only acquire things at a faster and easier rate, but the ability for more exclusives through buy-outs.
***to add missing points***
-CR also has a store with membership benefits
-CR has forums(that just about no one uses, but it's typical for a very small percentage of a user base to access forums
-CR I'm pretty sure said that they were going to institute some for of sidebar or optional adspace or links from that show/episode to the category for that show in the store

I have both Hulu and Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll has no ads and an awesome community. I only go on Hulu to watch the anime that isn't on Crunchyroll. I believe it is worth having both.

As far as I know Hunter x Hunter is only on Crunchyroll. So I'm satisfied with that.

Hulu has deciphered Adblock. It knows when you use it....

Crunchyroll seems to have some nice people. I came here for that more than the anime. Mostly I've found interesting forum questions and a lot of sarcasm.

I've always said there's a link between piracy and distribution. If it's not on Crunchyroll or Hulu, people are gonna pirate. But I'll still check those sites first. So as you can see, your question does not really exist, because you presented it as though either site has all the anime you'll want to see. Someday though, you're gonna run into a show one or both sites don't have. Setting that aside, I imagine Crunchyroll would have more of the other anime-related elements like news and such.

Speaking of which, how come none of the "legit sites" has any of the new Initial D episodes? I really want to watch em' but I hate the pirated websites (I feel like I'm stealing )

Such truth! Much agree. Basically, I view crunchyroll as mainly Sentai Filmworks anime and Hulu as mainly Funimatiom

I only use Hulu, not Hulu+, most Anime on Hulu doesn't require it anyway from what I remember. But Hulu gets stuff from all over, some shows they pick up, some they stream along with CR and FUNi at a delayed stream, some they get from the studios or whomever that neither FUNi or CR get.

I only got to Hulu though when neither CR or FUNi have it, as I use, pay, and prefer both of those sites over Hulu, which I have an account for only because it requires one to view shows and I used to be a Hulu+ member when I wanted to watch some TV shows before I got into Anime.

The only reason I would think of getting Hulu+ is I do believe it is required to be used on the Roku, which means if I wanted to watch their shows on my nice 50" tv I would I have to get it for that. But that would probably require me getting a second job to afford the monthly payments of all these subscriptions...

I dunno... With the recent site issues, I'm thinking of migrating over to Hulu... Simply because it works.

I prefer to watch it here because there aren't any ads, plus these guys listen to the community I like that. There also growing and expanding. I want to be a part of a community that grows.
