In the anime community – there are 1000’s of anime websites online. Even 10’s of thousands.
But are ALL of them worth following? Of course not.
There are more anime sites that have been abandoned then sites that are still alive and kicking after years of operation.
Let’s talk about those.
Types of websites in this list:
Well, let’s get started then!
The BEST List Of Recommended Anime Websites:
1. Nerdy Girl News
Gloria, the blogger behind Nerdy Girl News is a different breed all together.
She takes her personal experiences with depression, life, and mental health, then combines it into anime content to help her audience relate and take inspiration from.
I don’t know of any anime blog with this style, and there’s really no one else that does it better in the way she does it.
2. Otaku Kart
Otaku Kart has been mentioned here before.
They cover all kinds of content on their blog. But one of the most interesting things they do is break down the elements of shows like My Hero Academia, and go deep with their analysis of similar shows.
This is what makes them stand out if you ask me. And they’re worth checking out.
3. Anime Motivation
I started Anime Motivation half way through 2016. Now It’s a news partner for Crunchyroll and reaches thousands of fans per day.
Similar to The Nerdy Girl News, Anime Motivation’s focus is inspiration.
- Life lessons.
- Original content, like: Top 25 Countries Who Love Anime
There’s nothing like it on the internet. Period. That’s why I built it!
4. Angry Anime Bitches
First of all – I LOVE the name. But beyond that, similar to Random Curiosity, they cover new episodes of many anime series.
With short reviews and breakdowns of what went down.
They’ve been around for a long time, and are one of the most consistent anime websites ever created.
5. Random Curiosity
Random Curiosity isn’t your traditional news source. They’ve been around longer than most anime sites worth reading.
They take the latest anime shows, like Golden Kamuy season 2, and walk you through each episode with a short review.
Not to mention screenshots taken from each anime series.
So if you want a site where you stay up to date with the latest anime shows, this is it.
6. Anime News Network
There’s no way you’re an anime fan without knowing about Anime News Network. After all – they’ve been around since the late 1990’s!
They cover all the MAIN anime news you can think of. And if you’ve heard about it online, Anime News Network probably got to it first.
They’re the best if you want the best anime news in “general” without a doubt.
7. UK Anime News
If you’re specifically in the UK – UK Anime News is the #1 source worth checking out.
Everything happening in the UK, including anime releases, events, new shows and everything in between is covered by these guys.
Manga.Tokyo started a couple of years back. And now they’re a go to source for anime news and content. Straight from Japan!
They’re one of the few sites based in Japan with English content for a global audience.
Other than news, you’ll also find:
- And short analysis of new episodes from new anime.
It goes without saying. Crunchyroll is the king when it comes to anime streaming.
Or should I say – legal streaming?
At the moment they have over 900+ shows in their catalogue. And seeing as they’re a streaming company – they cover the latest anime news, rivalling sites like ANN.
10. Anime Lab
If you want something outside of the USA, Anime Lab has your back (if you’re in Australia or New Zealand).
Even though they cover less shows than Crunchyroll (not surprising), they’re one of the few legal streaming sites worth checking out.
In fact – they’re one of the few that even exist at all.
Again – this isn’t surprising unless you’re completely NEW to the anime industry.
Funimation is the OG of anime. No one has been around longer than this streaming (and dubbing) company.
The industry wouldn’t be the same without them.
Hulu recently partnered with Funimation, so they’ll have a much bigger catalogue when it comes to anime from this point forward.
They’re not the most exclusive anime streaming site (they’re generic), but it’s worth mentioning none the less.
Netflix is the granddaddy of streaming. And with the amount of money they’re pouring into the industry, you can expect big things to come from them.
And with their original anime shows exclusively on Netflix, they’re worth checking out. But only on a “small” scale until their catalogue grows bigger.
Nutaku is a NSFW gaming company in the anime industry. So anyone who’s interested in Ecchi or even Hentai will love what they offer.
They’re also a partner here at Anime Motivation. So go check them out (they’re a pretty big deal online).
15. Rinmaru Games
Another anime gaming company that’s more SFW than Nutaku, if that’s ideal.
They’ve been around since 2006 and their games are even on Google Play. So you’ll get the best of both worlds with this site.
16. Sentai Filmworks
Sentai Filmworks is a big deal. They’ve licensed some of the BEST shows in the business, like Akame Ga Kill.
Not only can you buy DVD’S on their website, they run their own blog as well with the occasional post.
It’s one of the few licensing companies I know of that stays up to date with their audience online.
This list will be updated with new sites as time goes by.
If you have any personal recommendations you want me to check out, leave a comment.
I’m the Founder of Anime Motivation.
The 1st anime I watched was Dragon Ball Z. Followed by Claymore, Inuyasha, Attack On Titan, and the rest as they say is “history”.
