Why does this look a lot like Nabari no Ou?

Eh... Whatever. I'm just hoping that FUNi picks up the rights to Attack on Titan soon.

Wasn't quite what I was expecting them to come out of the gate with, but I'll give it a shot.

...One of my most anticipated series of the season...With crappy Hulu video quality...And 5 day latecast...*sighs*

Okay, I guess I should probably be grateful that someone's streaming it rather than complaining. ...But...

Damn. I was hoping CR would get this because Funimation's site is terrible, but ah well. I'll still stream it from them anyway.

Come on people yes the video qaulity is a bit lower then crunchy but you have to pay for that major increase in qaulity. also funimations site is functional the only time you have problems with it is when you leave it to buffer for to long.

At least the subs will be HQ which can't always be said for sentai or crunchyroll.

This disappoints me greatly. I cannot stand Funimation's players or Hulu. Was hoping Crunchy would pick this up, but now I guess I will have to wait to import the singles to watch.

I can understand some of the dislike for the funi player but what is wrong with hulu if you can acess the site (aka not region locked)

Its not commercial free, even though I pay for the service, and the picture quality is usually pretty crappy for HD. I'm spoiled with Crunchyroll and Netflix where you get no commercials and actual HD content that looks like HD content.

If I am paying for a service, I expect it to be the best it can be, just not mediocre to OK.

And there go my hopes of it streaming to the UK. I was hoping that I would be able to avoid downloading anything this season Sad

So pretty much you dont pay for services then? Most streaming services are mediocre to OK.

Netflix is marginal at best. Sure you have a huge selection, but picture quality isnt the best.

Crunchyroll is good and it got better now that I can watch it on my TV, but even with a fast internet connection, the high def settings change every so often.

For Funimation, what I have found is, the website is variable. Sometimes I have no problems, other times I do. BUT the tablet and roku apps are significantly better. I never have a problem with them. So if you have a Roku, definitely use the Funimation app there.

Hey guys? Did you hear? There's this wonderful new thing called "downloading rips". It works pretty well, from what I've seen.

I have a Roku and the Funimation HD streams look great.

I hope this show returns good numbers and gets a physical release.
