I rely almost entirely on Funimation for simulcasts not on Crunchy. If it's a simulcast and not on Funi and not on Crunchy I don't watch it.

I do pay for a Funimation membership.

(Full disclosure: As a mod, CR comps me my CR membership, but it's very likely that if they didn't I'd still pay for Funi in addition to Crunchy).

I'll use CR, FUNimation, and occasionally Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Prime to watch anime and other content.

I probably don't need to maintain memberships multiple sites, but it's convenient if I find I want to watch something on a whim.

I tend to track down individual shows I want to watch:


If something is on CR or Netflix I'll watch it there. Commercial free streaming goodness.

If not, I can usually find it on Hulu Plus. Really large back catalog, and I don't mind the commercials too much. (I pay for Hulu and Netflix subscriptions, although that's as much for movies and so that my wife can watch back episodes of PBS Masterpiece dramas as it is because of anime...)

If I strike out those places, I have to start scrounging a bit:

I once watched a show on Crackle--not much there, but it's the only place I know of to watch Valkyria Chronicles (which is a solid anime)

Occasionally, I'll buy something on iTunes or Amazon sight unseen, although I haven't found many things available there that aren't also available on Hulu. (Those are purchases episode or season at a time.)

Finally, if I can't find a show anywhere else (usually because the license is expired and it's no longer available in the US--or never was), I'll look for it on YouTube or somewhere that hosts fan-subbing.

I pay for CR and Netflix, because they are the only services that I enjoy. I do not enjoy funimations service and don't find it worth the money at all. Let's just say if something pops up that I want to watch that I find ways to watch it.

If there were other services that I enjoyed, I'd pay for them too. I just don't like paying for what I feel is a poor quality service. (aka funimation)

Pay for CR, Hulu Plus, Netflix and Amazon Prime. Everything on Funi is on Hulu+, just a week delay on the simulcasts. Also that they don't get the uncensored version of subtitled shows.

Amazon Prime isn't that great for anime though. Doesn't even have separate section. Still there is some stuff there that doesn't seem to be on the others, it's just more work to find.

For consideration, Funimation runs several full simulcast series on YouTube. This past Fall 2014 Season they had 4 titles that included

* Laughing Under the Clouds
* A good librarian like a good shepherd
* In Search of the Lost Future
* Gonna be the Twin-Tail!!

There a number of legit channels (as mentioned earlier), including Funi, Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime and more. If you are a student, Amazon Prime is half price, well worth the expense. I only do Hulu and avoid Hulu Plus because I will not pay for commercials.

Lesser knowns (mileage varies) NicoNico and The Anime Network, but I don't have any direct experience with them.

Happy New Year!

I pay for CR and if there is something I want to watch from Funimation I can usually find it on their YouTube channel (Darker Than Black, WIXOSS, among others). CR is the only video streaming service I pay for.

In Ireland we only really have Crunchroll (DAISUKI does have 15 shows available to watch in Ireland though) so I usually I will pirate a show if CR doesn't have it.

I recently signed up for Funimation's 39.95 "Sub Only" pass (12-months). Seems like a good pair along with my Crunchy subscription.

I watch both on Crunchyroll and Funimation mainly. Other places would include Neon Ally and Anime Network. And yes I pay for Funimation as well.

I pay for Netflix, CR, and Funimation. I would pay for The Anime Network, but I did not have enough money for it this month.
