Studio information is clearly specified.

In addition, at the top of the page of 'What's Trending', there are buttons called Year (generation), Genre, Order (sorting), Anticipated (animated for broadcasting), Airing Soon (animated to start broadcasting soon). It is also possible to display animations that apply to these.

In addition, since 'Highest Rated' and 'Most Popular' can be selected from 'Order', what kind of animation has a high rating in Hummingbird? To see if it is a thing.

Hummingbird's most highly rated anime looks like this. From the 'Galaxy Hero Legend' that was released in 1988 to the 'Attack on Titan' that had been broadcast until just this time, they are arranged in a wide variety of evaluation order.

This order can be changed from 'Highest Rated' on the upper right of the screen.

To display recommended anime, you need to check the anime you have watched so far, the animation you are watching now, the animation you want to see in the future, etc. To do so, jump to the individual anime page and click 'add to library'.

And, 'Currently Watching', 'Plan to Watch', 'Completed', 'On Hold', 'Dropped', 'Remove from Library ( Select the appropriate one from 'Delete from library)'. You can change the viewing status of the animation at any time from the 'Library' of the 'Dashboard' on the top bar of the screen.
