Okay, I should clarify two things first:

1. I'd like to know a site where I don't have to pay to watch the shows.

2. This has to be legal. Nothing that violates copyright laws (this goes without saying, but just thought I'd put it so it's clear).

I'm sure this wouldn't be too difficult to narrow down. In the digital age with sites like Hulu, I'm sure there are websites that host anime in this manner. Heck, you check Youtube, some companies like FUNimation have their own channel with their shows. Really, I'm looking for two shows in particular so if you know a site that has them, that'd be great.

Yu Yu Hakusho - I caught a few episodes of it while it was on Toonami, but never really got into it. I liked what I saw and figured I should check out the complete series.

Berserk - I've seen bits and pieces, and the TV tropes pages describes it as "It Got Worse, the series!" It just looks like a kick butt fantasy series.

Well, that pretty much sums it up. Oh, and if the site has the English dubs, that be great. Thanks.

Just go to the Funimation website, and it's official YouTube channels.

Checked. They didn't have them. Though I know there are sites like this. I used to have one bookmarked: it's where I first saw Gurren Lagann.

Meh. I'd rather check out the anime.

They were not kidding but really the Anime series is more like a prologue to the actual story that continued on in the manga.

Although there is rumors of a new Anime coming out for it in the near future. Hopefully it is not just a redo of the series and is something that goes forward with the story.

Again, don't care. The anime looks awesome and action packed. And if it's a prologue, than shouldn't I watch it first?

Yeah, It's a pretty fair idea to watch the Berserk Anime first. It's awesome in it's own right, if nothing else. But it can't be overstated that, if after watching the anime you decide you enjoyed it, that it's definately worth going to the manga, which has not only additional plot elements, but is something like twice the length at minimum and is possibly still going.

I heard the new anime is actually a series of films (possibly over the next ten years?) with the first expected in 2012, and covering the entire manga.

nope, the last manga came out a year ago since i last checked, should be about 2 soon.

But yeah the Anime is really nice, it keeps some things missing but! the end of the anime was the best they could do.

have you considered in streaming? like anime dreaming? anime avenue? and so on?

Hope this helps.

While I understand a lot of people have trouble with it Hulu has a bunch of anime:

Doesn't the anime cut out Skull Knight though? If you picked up the manga from where the anime ended you'd have no idea who he is.


EDIT: Basically, the manga plot goes

Veteran!Gutts is introduced and goes on a rampage against demons in a grimdark low-fantasy world.
Cut back to Gutts's childhood. All his life up to Veteran!Gutts is covered. It's very dark in places, but the world as a whole isn't as grimdark as it seemed nor is Gutts as angry, and there's occasional humor. So lighter overall.
Now we're back to where we left. Gutts realises that going on a rampage wasn't accomplishing anything and calms down to solve the problems he caused by running off to rampage.
Gutts forms an adventuring party. The genre shifts closer to heroic fantasy, and humor returns.
The anime covers the second and maybe the first.

And note, when I say the later parts are more light-hearted that's compared to, say, WH40K. :smalltongue:

The exact legality of that does seem a little questionable however...

I think animeratio is legal. (http://www.animeratio.com/watch-english-dubbed-anime/)

Again, it's more than a little questionable. They aren't hosting anything illegally themselves but I seriously doubt everything they're linking is above-board. So technically they can't get done for copyright violation, but that's really just exploiting a loophole. You'd still be watching pirated stuff if you used it, just not stuff they'd be directly responsible for.

The legal options have been presented already folks, everything else will break down to a pirate feed.

And this thread is dangerously necrotic being revived now.
