Where to Watch Anime Online

Anime means so much more than cartoons. Animes have a fascinating history and a culture all their own. They can tell powerful stories and make viewers, laugh, cry, or scream in terror. There are nearly as many different types of anime as their are different types of anime fans — and there are a lot of anime fans.

You can find anime on cable or satellite, but that’s not the only way to watch your favorites in 2018. Thanks to the rise of cord-cutting and streaming services, you can now watch anime online. Here are a few of the best places to watch anime online legally. You may have heard of some of these, but you might not realize just how much great anime content is available on them!

Watching anime on Netflix

Netflix is the biggest streaming service around. With more than 100 million subscribers, it’s a very popular option for watching TV without cable. And anime fans will find plenty of good shows to watch on Netflix.

Top anime titles like Death Note and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood are available to stream on Netflix. Be sure to check out One Punch Man, too — fans and critics say that it offers a great mix of superhero-focused storytelling and laugh-out-loud humor.

There’s a good chance that you already have Netflix, so why not check out the anime that the service has to offer? Once you find a few anime shows, Netflix’s algorithms will realize that you love anime and will start recommending you even more great options.

Watching anime on Hulu

Netflix isn’t the only streaming company around, of course. Hulu, which is backed by several big companies with interests in production studios and TV channels, has been competing with Netflix for years.

Hulu tends to focus on more recent episodes of TV shows. It makes shows available soon after they air, instead of waiting for the end of a given season like Netflix does. Hulu also has ads, though subscribers can pay a bit more if they want to banish those.

Hulu’s on-demand library is full of great shows. Check out online resources to find the best animes on Hulu. You can find great reviews and recommendations for anime shows online, both from experienced critics and from fans just like you. Why not ask for recommendations on one of the internet’s many popular message boards?

Hulu also has a live TV streaming service called Hulu with Live TV. Subscribers willing to pay for that can enjoy live TV channels like Cartoon Network/Adult Swim, which means they’ll have even more ways to watch anime.

If you don’t already have Hulu, you can sign up for a free trial and check out all of this anime without spending a dime — unless, of course, you end up hooked and want to keep your subscription after the free trial period runs out! If you do, we wouldn’t blame you.

Watching anime on Crunchyroll

It’s tough to compete with the massive streaming services that have dominated the streaming space for years. Netflix has more than 100 million subscribers — how can a small service even begin to compete with that?

For Crunchyroll, the answer was simple: they just needed to find their niche. And, happily for fans of anime, that niche turned out to be Asian entertainment, and anime in particular.

Crunchyroll is full of great on-demand anime content. Along with top titles such as Attack on Titan and Dragon Ball Super, Crunchyroll also has manga. Manga, which is to comics as anime is to cartoons, has plenty of great stories of its own to tell. Crunchyroll subscribers can read manga online through the service.
