2020 has already been hell, and it is getting worse and worse. The popular piracy websites for anime and manga, KissAnime, and KissManga sites are now inaccessible for the viewers. And the site even announced the complete shutdown as of Sunday. If you’re one of the people who used to watch and enjoy anime in one of the free anime streaming websites like KissAnime, then it is shocking news for you.
If you’re unable to purchase premium services like Crunchyroll and Funimation, then using such piracy sites is normal. So, for you, we Anime Ukiyo had made a list of free anime streaming websites, and you don’t have to worry since these are entirely legal. So, shall we get into the business?
Free Anime Streaming Websites for KissAnime Lovers!
Here is the list of free anime streaming websites where you can watch them legally (Links included!)
- Crunchyroll– Crunchyroll is available worldwide (except for a few countries), and the best thing about this streaming service is you can enjoy most of the content for free. You can stream your favorite anime shows in your PC or Phone just by signing up with your email-id. For premium membership, you need to pay $6.95 per month.
- FunimationNow– Just like Crunchyroll, FunimationNow allows you to stream the sample of a complete streaming library but with ads. But if you want to get the best experience, then you can purchase a premium for $5.99 per month.
- VRV– VRV is similar to the other premium streaming websites, but it contains both Crunchyroll and HIDIVE catalogues, and an ad-free subscription is available for $9.99 per month.
- Retro Crush– It lets you enjoy tons of anime shows for free, and it has over 1000 anime shows and films. It might be one of the best alternatives if you can’t afford premium services.
- Midnight Pulp– It is also available worldwide and has a variety of TV shows and anime series. While you can stream them for free, the ad-free subscription is available for $5.
- Viz Media– Probably you only knew that Viz Media has tons of manga, but it also allows you to stream anime shows from Hulu. However, as usual, you need to purchase an ad-free subscription for a better experience.
- Anime Planet– All the episodes that Anime-Planet allows you to stream are free and legal. And these episodes are streamed with the partnership of top anime streaming services like Crunchyroll, HIDIVE, and Hulu.
- Pokemon TV– Sadly, Pokemon TV only has episodes of the Pokemon series. If you’re thinking of watching the Pokemon series, then this is the best option you can choose. And it is indeed one of the free anime streaming websites that allows only licensed content for viewers.
Well, with the ban of KissAnime, many people might’ve been searching for other sites. But it seems in 2021, almost all of the anime piracy websites will be taken down by the newly enacted law of Japan. So, if you’re trying to find a good place to watch anime for free, then you can refer to the above free anime streaming websites.
However, you won’t know which one is better, and the best option is to try each one and choose your convenient streaming service. Before you watch, make sure to sign up, or else, you can’t access the content from the above free anime streaming websites. Well, what are your thoughts on Anime Piracy?
