It’s no secret. Anime pirate sites are used a LOT. In the multi-millions in fact.

So many people have pirated in the anime community since then, that KissAnime once had well over 100 million visitors in a single month.

You’ll notice from this list that many countries are those with:

  • Censorship.
  • Lack of access to anime or streaming.
  • Or countries where anime licensors don’t operate if at all.

So it’s unsurprising that Pakistan for example, or even Jamaica is on this list for anime piracy usage/popularity.

Did your country make it to the top 25 for anime piracy usage or searches? Or maybe the honourable mentions from 26-30?
