My god veoh is spamed to hell these days, they cover half the screen up with stuff that it hurts my eyes, and I click the links on the Funimation website, and it comes out with "we can not find ..... collecetion" -_-
I used to love veoh, but now I hate it with its new layout...

That's funimation for you. /spit


Wow, that hurts. *wipes spit from eye* We're working with Veoh to better label the content. It's not like we want it to be unlabeled and hidden.

That's good. As more people that may have not been interested in anime before get access to it on another mainstream website the fan base may increase if people stumble across titles that pique their interest. This would increase the demand for anime, and possibly speed up and expand the availability of anime outside of Japan.

Or it could just be another obscure Veoh channel only visited by current fans...



That's part of the reasoning - trying to bring the anime to the people. Regardless, it's not hindering video on our own site. Nothing wrong with a little more legal video on the interwebs.

Wow, that was TOTALLY necessary, since they don't stream on their own website or anything. :p

I understand wanting to get their episodes out to a wider audience, but wouldn't it be better to just pimp out their own webisite some more?

Good, this means I won't have to search everywhere for GG:IT, and I'll probably watch a couple others on that list.

Anyways, I hope the rest of you can enjoy it.

WOOH! :D

Figured it was about time, they have one on youtube that constantly takes off anime. So Veoh was the next wise choice.

Been using Hulu and their own site instead....

Wish they would put the first season of Gunslinger Girl up :(
but can't really complain. Still happy with what they got up.
yeah, they have pretty much the same selection with hd options, they're also offering a few episodes of different shows on their site, including gunslinger girl.
