With the anime streaming market becoming ever more fractured, I am starting to have trouble finding the shows I want to watch. Gone are the days of Amazon, CR and NF having everything. Now we have those three plus Hulu, HD, and Funi also having exclusive content. Just the other day I was wondering why OPMan has not appeared on CR yet (I thought it was going to be on their website) only to find it is now exclusive to Hulu.

What I would like to know is if there is an page, article, or forum post (stickied!) somewhere that clearly and simply lists all currently airing show streaming in the US and where to find them? Something without having to click on anything to search for who has the rights for the show.

Something as simple as:

Spring 19 Streaming Anime
------------------------------------
Anime 1 - Funi, CR
Anime 2 - Hulu
Anime 3 - Amazon
Etc...

Something formatted nicely with some tables or something perhaps? Anyway, is this a feature of ANN or of any site/forum?

Thanks in advance!

The ANN season preview guide lists the streaming service for each show in their own intro summaries. That's how I usually keep up. You can also search new titles on because.moe to see where they are streaming this season. Netflix tends to hold things for months before release, so if you can't find a certain show it may have ended up with them.

Here are a couple websites that seem to categorize upcoming anime based on streaming service, but they're visually messy looking and may be lacking current info.
LiveChart.me: Spring 2019 Anime Streaming
The Fandom Post: Spring 2019 anime lineup

If someone else knows a place that maintains a clean chart like this, do tell because it's so easy to read. Dunno why ANN does not do something like this alongside the preview guide Neutral ?:

EDIT: Yatta-Tachi has a very good chart for Spring 2019.

Yes! Thank you! This is exactly what I am looking for.

So, ANN, why DON'T you do this for your customers? It is honestly shocking that this isn't a standard feature of the site. I hope you consider making some simple and useful lists like the links above.

I already pay for Amazon, Netflix, and Crunchyroll. Now I'm supposed to pay for Funimation or Hulu as well? So far the only Funi show I've watched is Mix. Though I like Cross Game, I'm not paying a monthly subscription to watch one show. If this sort of fractionalization keeps up, fansubbers will again find themselves in demand.

I only have the time and energy to watch maybe 2-3 new shows a season, so I'm personally more flustered about the glut of anime coming out than all the streaming services trying get a share of the market. I can't keep up with current discourse, so I don't bother. My backlog grows at a rapid pace now.

I mainly subscribe to VRV (Crunchyroll & HIDIVE bundle) and then sporadically to the other services for a month or two to binge on the exclusive shows that finished. I agree that having several desired shows scattered on all of the sites, wanting to sample most of what's available, and trying to stay current is real tough if you want to support the licensing industry.

To use your example, I've never subscribed to Funimation so I don't know what goes on there, but Hulu fell off the anime wagon only to come back with One Punch Man S2 as an exclusive. I don't care about anything else on the service, so I'd pay $5.99/mo for about 4 months just for one show or wait it out and use the one month free trial offer to binge. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Nah, fansubbers are only in demand when you get really bad translations from the official licensor or when Netflix is on the case. You'll just get rips in "service with one show" cases.

I use Amazon, Netflix, Crunchyroll, and Funimation a lot, what I'm contemplating canceling is HiDive since they barely ever get anything I want to see. As much as I like NotSentai's NeoAnimeNetwork, once I exhaust all their older completed shows that I haven't seen yet, there will be nothing for me.

For those who want CR and HiDive you might consider getting a VRV account. It's created by CR and features a membership to them, Hi-Dive, Rooster Teeth, Curiosity Stream, and more. It's also cheaper than paying for just CR and Hi-Dive separately. CR+Hi-Dive separately is roughly $135 a year and VRV is $120 a year. Plus with VRV you get the extra channels.

Mix suddenly, and surprisingly, appeared at Crunchyroll. Was there any prior announcement about a Funi/CR deal?
