Launches Over 15,000 New Streaming Videos With In-Depth Hulu Integration

SEATTLE — Anime-Planet, the world's most reputable recommendation database for anime and manga that serves 500,000 users a month, has partnered with Hulu to offer over 15,000 new legal, streaming videos from providers like Funimation, Viz and Sentai Filmworks.

Community members can now watch Hulu's full suite of anime videos directly from Anime-Planet. In addition, those who create an anime list of what they've seen can opt-in to update their list automatically when watching videos from Hulu or other providers on the site.

This is the second major announcement in the past few weeks from Anime-Planet, the only recommendation resource that now aggregates and serves content from two of the largest industry leaders for legal, streaming anime: Hulu and Crunchyroll.

Kim Cameron, CEO and founder of Anime-Planet, says this release is part of a wider plan to make the website a destination for watching the anime you love.

"Anime-Planet has been an innovator in bringing anime fans features they love since 2001 – we built our reputation through providing the only recommendation engine available on the web for around 6 years, we created the 'life on anime' bar that's now a standard feature across anime sites, and now, we're a destination for watching legal, streaming anime online from your favorite providers. Hulu provides a wealth of content from top anime providers in the USA, so now, in addition to watching your favorite Crunchyroll content on the site, you can also view many classic and brand new titles from Funimation, Viz, and more. With these and more announcements coming soon, it's a great time to try out Anime-Planet."

Ms. Cameron also talks about future plans to refresh Anime-Planet's look and feel.

"In addition to these exciting releases for video content, we're currently working steadily on a full visual redesign for the site, which will launch with a better user experience, simplified and attractive design, and new features – as well as better support for tablets and mobile devices. There's much more to come."


Anime-Planet was created in 2001 as the first anime recommendation database, enabling users to easily get and give recommendations for what to watch next. The site also features manga recommendations, personal anime and manga lists of what you've seen and read, and hand-written encyclopedia content for anime, manga, characters and beyond.
