So,

I have been a paying sub member of CR for a few months now. I have really enjoyed my time here and plan to stick around for quite a while to feed my anime addiction.

That being said I just signed up for the 14 day trial over on Funimation.com to give it a whirl. What are some suggestions that I should be checking out over there? I'm already a fan of Blood Blockade Battlefront, but not sure what else I should be going for. I typically watch either mecha, action or ecchi rom/com stuff.

Sorry if this is in the wrong place.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Here's a list of some of the better ones over there, in my opinion. I think the three best are Eureka Seven, FMA: Brotherhood, and Steins; Gate, but all of these are at least pretty good.


Action Ecchi Harems
--------------------
High School DxD
A Certain Magical Index


rom-coms
-----------------------
Chobits
Ben-To
Fruits Basket
Haganai
Shuffle
Yamada's First Time (B Gata H Kei)


Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi:
---------------------
Eureka Seven (mecha)
Eden of the East
Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood
Steins; Gate
Trigun

Oh the whole as far as simulcasts, they generally get a few good ones, though not nearly as many as CR for example. They do however, have a sizable backlog of older series, so it probably would be worth for a bit if you want to clear off some older series not on CR in a legal manner.

So you've got Kekkai Sensen down, other current Simulcasts that are rather popular there at the moment would be:
Seraph of the End
Assassination Classroom

For older ones I'd second Haganai as it is phenomenal. Also seconding B Gata H Kei as it is rather good too, it's an ecchi rom-com, and it was pretty hilarious in my opinion. I haven't been there for a while, but if they still have Soul Eater, that was a pretty sweet action series, the spinoff was alright as well, but not as good as original.

Thanks so far. I just noticed my terrible typo in the thread title... damn me and my non-typing skills.

Fixed it for you

I suggest Assassination Classroom. Doesn't quite fit into any of the genres you mentioned; I'm actually not sure what genre it fits into. But it's quite good on several levels.

Thank you. I am always open to suggestions... unless it's Yaoi

Ben-to is kind of a quirky action/fanservice/romance show
Black Lagoon is pretty good action, serious with a touch of dark humor.
Corpse Princess/Shikabane Hime is action/with hints of dark romance
Date-a-live is fanservice/harem
Not sure where to classify Death Parade, but that is excellent.
Everyone should watch Full Metal Panic. I'm not usually into mecha, but that's a good one.
Ikki Tousen is pretty much Action/fanservice
Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom
Pumpkin Scissors
Rage of Bahamut: Genesis
Samurai 7
Samurai Champloo

Those should keep you occupied...
