CrunchyRoll

For the largest lineup of streaming Anime, CrunchyRoll has the hookup. You can also watch brand-spankin' new shows only one hour after they air in Japan, which is pretty neat. Because of that, most of their content is English subtitled only. They are given translations by some distributors and the rest of the subbing is done by translators they have on staff. If you can't get past having to read, though, you might want to look elsewhere. You can watch for free with ads, but you'll be watching in standard definition and you won't be able to catch any of the new shows for a few weeks. If you spring for a subscription, you get access to everything they have in their collection in 1080p HD.

CrunchyRoll has select episodes that are free to watch with ads on PC, Mac, iOS, Android, and Playstation or Xbox consoles. A $7 a month subscription removes ads, allows HD streaming, and makes their entire library available.

Iv'e been seeing a lot of Crunchyroll commercials on TV lately, pretty crazy how popular it's become in such a short time.

I'm sort of glad anime is getting noticed and sort of not. Some people might start to think it's gross but some might like it :/

It's great to see anime getting more exposure as it has grown to be quite big, although it's still small potatoes compared to stuff produced here rather than from Japan. While Lifehacker isn't exactly as well-known as other places, it certainly is something to see that it's getting more mainstream even if it is locked in its niche zone here in America.
