Seems like they're missing a lot, unfortunately. Hulu definitely had more Funi shows last season. They're missing Darwin's, Hatena Illusion, 22/7, Uchi Tama, Ishizoku Reviewers, number24, and that Budokan show. And Nekopara, like you said. Unless I can't seem to find them on Hulu. They have everything else, though.


Yeah, I didn't check the shows that are also available via Crunchyroll or HIDIVE because I'm subscribed to VRV. I mentioned that I was only talking about shows that were exclusive to Funimation in the North American region, though. I noticed that Crunchyroll is supposed to carry Darwin's Game and Uchitama, however they aren't going to begin releasing episodes until the second week in February. So, it is possible that Funimation has some sort of limited-exclusivity deal that forces all the other licensees to delay their release schedule for those two shows. I wonder if they will show up on Hulu at the same time as Crunchyroll or not.

The Funimation-exclusive shows I have been following on Hulu are ID:Invaded, Plunderer, Infinite Dendrogram, BOFURI, Hanako-kun, and Majutsushi Orphen Hagure Tabi. I can't comment on the sports anime because I avoid that genre like the plague.

Nekopara and Ishuzoku Reviewers are too ecchi for Hulu, it seems.

Something curious I've noticed is that almost all of the shows that are Funimation-exclusive for North America are also available on Hulu. The notable exception so far is Nekopara (which is probably excluded for content rating purposes).

So, I guess I don't have to worry about subbing with Funimation unless I really cared about Hentawaii (yeah... not enough to pay an extra $6/mo).
