Reading the manga and watching anime is really a fun thing to do. As I said in my previous article, it really is a good way to spend some afternoon leisure. As good as it is, it is not that easy to find a good website to watch anime online. Sure, there are tons of sites where you can watch anime in no so legal way, but watching anime legally lets you support the creators while watching the anime online in high quality and as soon as it is released in Japan.
The sites shared here are mostly free. i.e, you can watch most of the anime titles for free. However, some anime titles or the most recent episodes might be behind the pay wall. Without further ado, let's get to now some of the best sites to watch anime online legally.
Best Sites to Watch Anime Online for Free
Crunchyroll is one of my favorite and best service available to watch anime online. Crunchyroll has hundreds of good anime titles like Naruto, Bleach, etc. Although you can't watch most recent episodes as they release (you may have to wait for 1 or 2 weeks after their initial release to watch new episodes for free) without a premium subscription, you can watch all the previous or old episodes for free and most of the anime titles here can be accessed worldwide.
So if you don't mind little things like waiting for new episodes then Crunchyroll is for you where you can enjoy high-quality streaming for free.
Funimation is the biggest company that deals with anime in the North America. Funimation hosts several anime titles with almost 8500+ episodes and movies. The best part of Funimation is that you can watch most of the anime titles for free, but the only downside is that you have to be a registered user and there are plenty of regional restrictions in place. However, If you live in the US then you can watch almost all the anime titles.
Viki is a beast and does have lots of anime titles to watch. The good thing about Viki is that it is worldwide i.e, Unlike Funimation, the regional restrictions are pretty less and you can watch almost any anime for free. The only downside is that the quality of the free video is a bit low. So, if you don't mind a little low quality of the video then Viki is that best choice.
Watch Anime Online for Free Conclusion
If you are in the US then you have plenty of other choices like Crackle, Hulu, Netflix, Viz, etc. If you are not the US then you can simply use a paid VPN (which is best for streaming video) or a free VPN to get access to those amazing anime titles.
If you are not in a mood for all this then you can use not so legal anime sites. So these are some of the best sites to watch anime online legally and I do think that I've missed some other best sites. So do share if you know any.
