    Hiya.

    My weeaboo tastes have been flaring up again thanks to playing so much Shin Megami Tensei lately. I have been looking for a good alternative to Netflix or Hulu Plus that streams anime. I know that there are tons of illegal sites out there, dont list them here. Besides, I've probably already used them.

    Now dont get me wrong, Netflix has some anime, and Hulu Plus actually has a pretty sizeable amount. But... no gundam... friggin sunrise. I am kinda looking for someone legit that streams Gundam so I can catch Seed HD remaster somewhere without having to painfully download it on my ~1.5 Mbps connection.

    Oh also I am kinda hoping to find a site with some app or whatever for phone or console, I dont like watching stuff through my laptop if I can avoid it. Thanks!

    Also feel free to recommend me some anime. I like mech stuff like gundam mostly.

    Gundam mech stuff:

    Code Geass is an anime must watch and top 10 for years now. Once you get into it, you really get into it. The english dub is pretty good too
    Guilty crown: Wishy washy, its exciting and the music is absolutely beautiful but the plot is a bit confusing

    Generally:
    Space Dandy is one of the best running anime's this season. Also with an equally good dub
    If you've been enjoying Shin Megami tensai, try the anime Devil Survivor 2

    Errm, if you have any other weeaboo anime questions. Fly my way

    xoxo

    Crunchyroll just released on Vita if you're into watching anime on handhelds.

    Crunchyroll is kinda what I figured. They have a page for Gundam Seed but when I try to watch it, they have no videos :C

    Code Geass, already watched will probably watch again, but Hulu doesnt have it
    Guilty Crown will be watched again, its weird and cool

    I literally have Space Dandy on right now.
    DS2, not yet, not till i play the game :P

    Maybe Ill try crunchyroll's trial. I cant really justify having hulu and crunchyroll though.

    It isn't paid (soon) but there is https://www.neonalley.com/ which is owned and put up by viz. They stream shows like a TV network, but also have a thing called "catch up" which lets you watch shows as you'd like after they are released.

    So I just finished all the available episodes of Space Dany. That was drugs. Does anyone know how many more eps they plan for this season? And if it will continue?

    Also can anyone confirm whether paid crunchyroll has Gundam, Bebop, and/or Code Geass?

    First of all, streaming and torrenting anime isn't illegal, they were broadcast for free over the air. You never have to pay for a TV show. Second, I laugh at all the tools that pay for a service like Netflix to watch free stuff.... that's just idiocracy at it's finest.

    13 episodes this season, unconfirmed for season 2.

    buying bluray/dvd or torrenting them from good fansubbers is better than streaming imo.

    You are implying that television is free when it isn't - it's paid by your taxes. You are free to record anything that's on television and re-watch it at any time, but that's your copy and it cannot be distributed, same goes to streaming sites. Free streams of content that is not Public Domain are factually illegal as they can be written off as illegal distribution or illegal broadcasting without a license. I suggest looking into the Sony vs. Universal City Studios court case for details on what constitutes a legal recrding of a tv show.

    Where the land sea lions live.
    Try kissanime, I'm not sure how legal the site is but their videos seem to be hosted in youtube, and the site has tons of adds(nothing noscript wont fix :P). Also, most of their videos have decent quality, though I haven't checked older animes.

    Not only is your comment unhelpful, but it's also wrong. If I wanted to illegally stream or torrent I world have done it already.

    It's paid by their ad revenue. Only one or two programs per country are funded out of taxes or TV license fees, the vast majority are commercial programs funded either by subscription (HBO for example) or by ad revenue.

    You could also try toonami/adult swim itself, they don't have much up though. Seems to work like neon alley where they swap em around. Funimation and aniplex are also really great. http://aniplexchannel.com/ Has some of the stuff with neon alley but it more upto date, showing kill la kill, and the second season of magi. An http://www.funimation.com/videos/episodes (alternatively http://funimation.tv/ is a straight up TV channel) which is mostly dubs but they simulcast as well.

    With that I unfortunately couldn't find anywhere for gundam and found that in 2012 international distribution of sunrise's properties came to a complete halt. With Funimation, aniplex, viz, etc currently in talks after having licensed their shows to bring over, to get the licenses back so sunrise themselves may distribute them. I don't have any further info than that, other then it explaining why everything owned by sunrise cost an arm, and a kidney to buy. :/
