Ah, I don't read Japanese, but I do see 22:00~22:15. Is that more like 15min than 7min, or is it still under 10min after the ad breaks are taken out?

Its animated. In Japan. That's pretty much what "anime" means, no?


I haven't seen the video yet myself, so I guess we'll have to wait and see.

I hope Crunchyroll gets M3 - Sono Kuroki Hagane.

As there are no "?" boxes remaining on the lineup page, and it premieres in about 9 hours, it seems doubtful.

Fortunately, Daisuki will have it available worldwide (except for Japan and China), so availability isn't a problem:

True, but they can always add more. But Daisuki's site is okay. So fare there site streams in High Quality with a commercial in the beginning. And there app streams in HD and with no commercials. I haven't seen a commercial on the app yet. I don't know if that is an error or something, but it's a very dissent app for what it is.

Indeed they can, but no "?" boxes indicates the pipeline is currently empty.

There are definitely some people that are averse to streaming at any legal site other than CR, but personally I don't have an issue with doing so. Daisuki is definitely better than Hulu, since as you mentioned, it has only a single pre-roll ad.

Speaking of a lack of ads, the last time I tried Funimation's HTML5 player (signed out, so that I was experiencing it as a standard user), the videos on it also had no ads, although there were clearly breaks in place for commercials.

I think that aversion depends very much on exactly what the regional alternatives are and what you particular setup is.

Personally, I'm CR-or-nothing simply because of how the UK services stack up and the gear I have. Crunchyroll is currently the only truly multiplatform (dedicated) anime streaming service.

Wakanim is web+paid download. Animax is web+PS3. Daisuki is web+iOS. CR is, I think, the only UK option with decent queueing.
And as my personal setup has one TV with a PS3 and one with an AppleTV (read: AirPlay Receiver), Wakanim and Daisuki tie me to a specific room if I want to stream Anime to a TV.

I don't have any personal experience of other country's streaming services but I know that madman's "Screening Room" is web-only. And I've heard lots of people compare Hulu and Funination unfavourably to CR.
Although I'll grant that those may be the same sort of "doesn't suit my setup" preference that leads me to not like the UK alternatives.

I think there's also the convenience factor. A lot of us would probably really like to have one single queue/watchlist. (Which would, coincidentally, only require one paid subscription...)
Everything in a single place, for a single price. Well, who wouldn't wish for that?

The main drawback of Hulu to me is that I have to pay to get Hulu on my Roku or Android, and if I pay I still get ads. So instead to get Hulu I hook up my bedside TV to my bedroom netbook and watch free Hulu, which I'm only likely to do for something I am a very big fan of, like A Certain Scientific Railgun.

When I have the spare change, I'll get a month of Funimation to put Funimation on my Roku, but in the first half of the year I'm paying down my conference travel from the winter, so that's not likely for the Spring season.

My personal setup originated back before CR had any apps, and in fact before I visited CR. Back when Netflix first began streaming, and around the same time as I encountered the first handful of show The Anime Network made available online, it became clear to me I would need a PC attached to my TV for the best viewing experience with online streaming (of all types, not just for anime).

While other devices have arrived in the interim, with apps for many, the PC is still the platform of choice for many. Fore example, if you want to watch Hulu without paying for Hulu Plus, you need a computer. (For those tempted to point out the PlayOn workaround, note it requires a PC to act as a server).

Other services (Netflix, Funimation, Manga Entertainment) are available on the PC, but I find it preferable to view them on my Roku. If I go to view something on Viki, I may use my Chromecast instead of the PC.

For me, it is a case of the right device for the service, not the right service for the device. This can also sometimes give alternate methods of viewing a show in the event one stream has a problem.

Frankly, the only negatives I see in Hulu are that it is ad-supported (like CR's free streams), and it is only 480p at best if you don't pay for Hulu Plus (which still beats CR's 360p free streams, although with Hulu Plus, the ads remain). It does have the advantage of rarely giving anyone streaming issues.

Funimation seems to be in the same boat as CR regarding web streaming; some people have buffering issues, others don't. In just the past few days, however, it appears Funimation may have addressed that issue (based on what I was beginning to see in the forum there). Personally, I use the Roku for my viewing there (aside from the occasional test), and like many people that use it for Funimation, I experience no problems.

That's sort of why I have multiple devices. because, for me, it is very much a case of "how can I do this away from my computer desk".

My primary video (and gaming) setup is from my armchair, with a decent sized TV and a fairly decent amp. Flop in armchair at end of long day with remote control or gamepad in hand.
(After a day of IT Support, I'm done with sitting at the computer, starting at a monitor and using a keyboard and mouse, and want a few hors of not-that)

My backup setup is in the bedroom. Primarily used when I'm too tired or ill to sit up at the computer desk.

It really is a case, for me, of "what can I do that isn't at the computer". So a service that is web-only simply isn't going to get used. I'd rather watch something different, including grabbing a Blu-ray from my collection/backlog, or play a game.
Or even... read a book. (Many an evening has been lost to curling up in the armchair and reading)
