Step 1: Download that Adobe Flash Player
Step 2: Install it.
Step 3: Continue watching anime.

Seriously, it's safe.

Should have gotten a PC, but it's your preference.

Things you might want to consider downloading when you first setup a new computer:
Java
Adobe (Flash, Shockwave, Reader)

and maybe a different web browser if you don't use the default one.

My advice would be to download and install Adobe. Then you can watch some anime.

Use Hulu if Adobe is giving you problems.

I would strongly advise avoiding Java unless you find you absolutely need it. Many people will never need Java.

Likewise there are less vulnerable alternatives to Adobe Reader, not to mention that it isn't necessary on a Mac (which can natively display PDF files, just as Windows 8 or later can).

The last I checked, Hulu still didn't have an HTML5 player (and were not planning to offer one soon), which means they would still require Flash.

While they had a desktop app, they stopped active support for it at the end of January last year, so I don't know if it would even work (or if it still required Flash).

I personally can't wait for CR to add an HTML5 version of their player. As a Mac user myself I hate having to use Flash as it eats my battery like nothing else.
