I used it before if you can deal with the adds along with strong censored then yeah it's ok. I say censored because I tried watchinng Deadman Wonderland on it and they were times were my whole screen would be black, for a sec I thought something was wrong with my TV.


Thank God I'm not the only one who noticed that about Deadman Wonderland. I watched the series there too and even though I'm 18+ (and registered as such) it was all heavily censored. To the point that it was annoying and I couldn't see anything. I got frustrated pretty quickly because I don't put up with ads and pay them to watch a black screen.

The main advantage for Hulu Plus is the ability to watch it on other devices aside from the computer as well as a few exclusive shows (not sure if there is any Plus exclusive anime) Like many people here, I use it as my secondary anime source. Generally when a show doesn't make it to Crunchyroll it's on Hulu.

Hulu is a great way to watch Sentai titles that are exclusive to TAN or Funimation titles without having to deal with Funimation's limited app support. If you watch anime on a streaming device in particular it's well worth it because Hulu supports just about as many devices as Netflix does.

Titles I've seen on it so far over the last month that don't stream elsewhere:
Hidamari Sketch
Tamako Market
Mm!
Cross Game
A-Channel
Maid Sama
Special A
Arakawa Under the Bridge
And yet the town moves

And a few more that I can't think of at the moment. And that's not even mentioning the Funimation titles I watched as well which is a whole other list! I had only bought it so I could watch Hidamari Sketch (I'm a huge studio Shaft fan), but I just kept finding more and more titles so I'll probably stick with it a while longer.


Correction Arakawa under the bridge is streamed here on CR.

On topic I pay for CR and funi. No sense in paying for ads. Say no to hulu's ads when you pay.

I started watching Attack on Titan through Hulu. It was the first anime I ever watched and I had never heard of Crunchyroll. Once I caught up to the show (around episode 23), I had found out about Crunchyroll, I bought a subscription, watched episodes 24&25 when they came out, and decided to keep my subscription. Now I'll never run out of anime to watch.

tl;dr -- Hulu is a gateway drug to anime that might get people who watch a lot of TV but not anime to give the genre a chance. I know it worked for me.

Hulu is great, I use it to watch TV shows and as a secondary anime streaming site(especially if an anime I want to watch is only available there)

What i saw based on when I had hulu+ is that the "+" service only allows you to watch it on your consoles or other streaming devices like a roku, and slightly less ad time so I don't think it's worth it really.

I LOVE Hulu+ I watched/listen to anime's through out work. If you can get over the 30-90 second ads through out the show then it's not a bad thing to invest it. I'm currently watching Nisekoi, Fairy Tail, One Piece, Toriko, & Rosario Vampire. (:

I use Hulu when I want to watch stuff not licensed by Crunchyroll. I used Hulu before I knew about Crunchyroll, you just gotta be wary of their unavoidable ads.

Personally I don't think Hulu Plus is worth it but plain old Hulu is great as far as a streaming service.

I used Hulu for Tsukuyomi Moon Phase, Ouran High School Host Club, and xxxHolic, and it's not bad.
