I use both but I think crunchyroll is easier to use.

I vote both.
Yeah, I don't get why Funimation has no Roku queue, but it's still got some nice shows.
And, at risk of losing my otaku card, I actually like dubs sometimes!

Crunchyroll has a better anime selection page and funimation is a complicated website >.<

• I don't really have to use Funimation's site to watch my favorite series (i.e. Hulu or through the Funimation App I bought).
• I kind of dislike their forums.

CR has figure out what works better in their website and for their customer , the paying and free kind and they have a larger library of titles while they have the streaming rights depending on the contract

while Funimation is still trying and their layout is annoying as hell. I only go there when my favorite anime simulcast initially streams .

but since Funimation does get very good titles in simulcast that CR does not have ,I have to go there and to support them as much as I can but I hope they keep the cheaper price to keep their paying customer.

BUT iTS annoying that you have to buy the apps separately even though you pay for their streaming already.Its really an annoying set-up.
And so I will never buy them .

Funimation's site is shitty... I've never gotten their player to work, and I live in the US. They are focused on physical sales, as Brakkis said, the their streaming side of their business is an afterthought.

They have a habit of snatching up titles and then not doing anything with them, which makes me despise them. They might have stopped doing this though since I haven't looked into them recently.

I use both. I dropped my subscription with Funimation and just se the free service now. There are only a couple of current simulcasts that I watch. CR has the best website, news feed and variety if anime for me. I'm still on the fence about their updated Roku app though.

Crunchyroll was the first page to show up when I looked up "anime subscription"
that's why.

Now I just support the site out of routine.

I use CR more simply because of the selection, community, cheap price and the the fact their website is a little more professional.

I do use Funimation but I'm not an elite member.

By this do you mean getting titles that they only stream but don't put out on home video, or announcing they've licensed titles that then don't become available from them for 1-2 years, or something else?

I have a membership for my Funi and CR and yes, I paid the $10 for the app so I can use my data on my phone, so I don't use my brothers stream data.
I got Funi to watch Black Butler because I didn't want to be a week behind on Youtube. I've watched other shows, but there site is a pain. If you save a fave on the site, it does not "talk" to the app and the app isn't easy either. CR site and App is great!!! I've only posted to CR forums... I didn't like their forums...

If CR got Black Butler (USA), I wouldn't have gotten Funi...
