“If you’re looking for some free dubbed anime websites, read on to find out more.”

Anime shows are always recommended to be watched in the Japanese language with subtitles as it is more efficient to relate to the culture. And it just fits well once you get used to the language, but it isn’t always the best option, especially if you’re just getting started on anime.

Many people prefer to watch dubbed anime series over subbed ones mainly due to the reason of splitting the attention between the anime and subtitles. So, you may have been wondering where to watch dubbed anime series or just want to help your friend out. Here are the best dubbed anime websites to make things easier for you.


Crunchyroll - Dubbed Anime Websites

Crunchyroll is the go-to destination for any viewer because its ultimate anime library makes finding any anime you want easier. Furthermore, tons of amazing dubbed anime content is being added every month, along with a slew of features to make its subscribers happy.

While it is a given it has a premium subscription, not many can afford or prefer not to spend any money on streaming platforms. Fortunately, you can watch almost any anime for free on Crunchyroll with a little streak of ads as compensation. Some classic dubbed anime series you can watch on Crunchyroll are Fruits Basket, Cowboy Bebop, and Yu Yu Hakusho.

You may have known Anime-Planet as just another wiki site that provides detailed information on a specific anime, but that’s only some extent of what this website does. If you look properly in the options of a particular anime on the site, you can find “videos,” which basically offer all episodes for free, and all you have to do is just click the play button.

Of course, it still has ads but not the sort that annoys you but rather the ones that you can skip as you do on YouTube. The Ancient Magus’ Bride, Tower of God, and Noblesse are some great dubbed anime you can watch on Anime-Planet.


Hulu - Dubbed Anime Websites

Hulu is a seriously underrated streaming platform because you not only have many notable classic films and TV shows but also various Korean dramas, and most importantly, it offers a plethora of dubbed anime.

Although Hulu is not accessible in every region, if it is available in your country, it is a must-have subscription if you’re planning on bingeing dubbed anime. While it doesn’t entirely offer a free service like Crunchyroll, you can have it for one month for free as a trial and see if it works out for you. Summer Time Rendering, Naruto, and Spy x Family are some excellent dubbed anime you can watch on Hulu.

HIDIVE - Dubbed Anime Websites Free

HIDIVE is one of the few streaming services focusing on English dubs frequently, as you can find most of the dubs two or three weeks after the anime’s initial broadcast in Japan. It has a varied selection of titles from both well-known licensing companies, Section23 and Sentai Filmworks.

Furthermore, the streaming service is available in many regions across the world, but its titles differ based on the country due to licensing issues. So, it is not a free option, but you can have a free trial of seven days and cancel whenever you like before it expires. Haikyuu!, Food Wars, Golden Time, and Clannad are worthy recommendations to look out for.


Free Anime Dubbed Websites

With Funimation officially merging under the Crunchyroll banner, it is normal to think it may be completely shut down. However, the streaming service is still operational, except it doesn’t simulcast the new titles acquired by Crunchyroll, so you can use it just fine.

Conveniently, Funimation also offers a free plan, albeit not all the titles can be watched through advertisements. Nonetheless, if you’re interested in having a subscription to watch dubbed anime shows on a daily basis, it is an excellent option because its pricing is almost the same as Disney+ and Prime Video.


VIZ - Dubbed Anime Websites

VIZ is a destination to go for whether you want to read manga or watch anime. Apparently, it partners with platforms like Hulu, Crunchyroll, and Netflix to bring fan-favorite anime shows, so its catalog is extremely limited. You can watch many classic anime series like Naruto, Bleach, and Inuyasha in English dub for free as it doesn’t require you to have a subscription to access these titles.

Prime Video

Prime Video is a great resource if you’re a heavy binge-watcher because, aside from many movies, TV shows, Korean dramas, and animated titles, it also hosts several dubbed anime series. While it does not offer any kind of free access, you can give it a try using the trial period and see if it’s worth spending your money on. Great Teacher Onizuka, Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple and Elfen Lied are some excellent anime series you can watch on Prime Video.

It’s not a surprise to learn that Netflix even offers dubbed anime shows, let alone countless subbed anime, on a weekly basis. Its catalog is the largest in the world, even surpassing Crunchyroll because Netflix adds and produces all kinds of content.

However, it is not a free resource you can watch without a subscription, like Crunchyroll and Funimation. However, having a Netflix premium is like holding a library full of endless DVDs of entertainment.
