The Xbox One is full of apps that make it easy to watch anime right on your Xbox One.
Subscription: $6.95/month OR Free With Ads
Crunchyroll is a dedicated anime streaming service, making it the best option for watching anime. A large number of shows are viewable free with advertisements on Xbox, but some are inaccessible without a subscription. The best option is to subscribe as it will grant unlimited access to their anime, Japanese Dramas, and same day simulcast airings of anime. If you use the Crunchyroll website, and are a subscriber, you will also have access to a large library of digital manga.
Hulu Plus is another streaming service with a rather large catalog of anime. Hulu Plus offers unlimited streaming of anime from Funimation, Manga Entertainment, Sentai Filmworks, and many other anime distributors. While not on the same level as Crunchyroll, Hulu Plus has simulcast airings of anime. The Hulu Plus app is subscription only and still runs advertisements during shows, but is otherwise a strong choice for viewing anime.
Netflix is the largest streaming service in the world, naturally its massive library also includes anime. Anime releases onto Netflix with all episodes of a season already up for viewing. There is no waiting for new episodes to air and no advertisements to distract you. Netflix is an excellent app for binge watching anime.
The Funimation app is not out yet, but rest assured it is coming soon to Xbox One. It is subscription based with varying subscription fees. The app will offer anime simulcast and a large collection of English dubbed anime with no advertisements. Only anime licensed by Funimation will be offered, but that is still a very large catalog of anime.
