If you're into darker stuff I'd suggest The Severing Crime Edge, Black Bullet and Dusk-maiden of Amnesia on here.

Daisuki doesn't charge for a membership and has Black Butler Book of Circus and M3 the Dark Metal which also fit into your likes.

There are many good titles that fit what you're looking for on Hulu (but you have to sit through about three 30 second blocks of commercials when watching there).

In answer to your question about all the shows in one place. Look at HBO, Cinemax, Starz, Showtime, TMC...have you ever seen the same movie on multiple channels at the same time? It's quite rare due to exclusive licensing, just like first run shows on regular network tv (you won't turn to ABC hoping to catch Gotham, Supernatural, NCIS or the Blacklist...you know other networks own the rights to them) Anime has many competing companies/channels/sites on the market. It's up to you to decide which has the most to offer you. I find the following true...

Crunchyroll has the best variety of family/general new subtitled anime plus a great back catalog of recent subtitled anime, manga and drama.
Funimation has an alternative style to new anime (both subbed and dubbed) usually of an edgier more adult-oriented style. The trade off is they only get about 1/3 as many new titles each season as Crunchyroll. Their back catalog (subbed and dubbed) is large and also skews more edgier/adult-oriented.
Daisuki has very little to offer but what they do offer is a few titles unavailable elsewhere.
Hulu/Hulu Plus offer many of the titles the other sites mentioned do but new animes run as much as a month behind, back catalogs are not complete for many series that also appear on Crunchy/Funi and thier back catalogue skews classic anime (90s/00s), many of which aren't available elsewhere.Hulu seems to currently have the largest back catalog but it isn't the place to watch new anime plus you need to sit through commercials. The other upside is unlike the other services mentioned Hulu offers a large number of OVAs and Anime movies.

Each service has their own strengths and weaknesses just like tv networks themselves.


Thank you for your insight I wasn't looking at it that way but it makes sense! Appreciate the input, thinking I need a couple subs now xD.

Yvw . I know exactly how you feel. I was floored when first trying to decide between Hulu, Crunchy and Funi a few years ago. It was a hard choice at the time so I subbed to all three . I'm planning on doing the same again due to the discounts for one year subs with Crunchy and Funi . It's enough of a savings to make a difference.

One title I forgot to mention on here I loved was more a mini-series than a full series, Interlude. It was a dark, post-apocalypse sci-fi and was pretty good. Another anime that grabbed me and held me was Btooom! It's a suspenseful survival horror of sorts.

Thanks man I'll definitely check those out! I watched a youtube on some Seinen anime and that is definitely what my alley looks like that catches my interest most the time.

Thanks for every ones input it definitely gives me a clearer view that i needed on the genre as a whole and why it is sectioned as it is!

Looked up a rough genre list: Action/psychological/mecha-mechanical(Oh yeah I loved code geass) demon-action, Fantasy,Game (I like Sword Art Online- I don'tlike how the second season is a shooter but still want to give it a try)Mystery, Seinen(thats a good one from the description(I like cowboy bebop))Space,supernatural.

If you want to explore shows by tag/type here, I have an index page that expands them quite a bit more than the few that CR provides:

CR has some older anime that you can't find anywhere else really, such as Kemono no souja erin, and Hanasakeru Seishounen (compliments of the year where awesome anime go to hide) for instance.

Also it should be pointed out, that CR tends to get a lot of the newer anime these days, the same time they air in Japan as well, which you're not gonna find anywhere else either.

It depends what genre you like. "Say I Love you" is another good one on here, even though the genre is 'Shoujo' which means aimed at girls, I thought it was pretty good lol. Just watch a few top 10s on youtube even. If you want to watch the best show ever made though, that looks amazing, has a beautiful soundtrack, is really meaningful with great character development, feeling like you've been on a journey from start to end along with learning life lessons, a balance of humor / drama, it's too much to put into words, I suggest Clannad, then the second season being After Story.



Lately I've found many of the female targeted anime to be some of my favorites. The likes of "Princess Jellyfish", "The World is still Beautiful" and the recent "Yona of the Dawn" I'd suggest to anyone. Now excuse me while I go watch MD Geist to restore my testosterone levels.
