Edward Elric Spitting Out His Drink With Winry Rockbell

Ever wondered what the biggest anime websites in the world are?

Subjectively you can think of big anime websites like Anime News Network… But there’s so much more than just ANN.

Until now, nobody has reported any data of the biggest anime websites, statistically. So I thought I’d be the first.

Note: All the anime data gathered is taken from, which is visible for paid/trial accounts only.

Another note: Alexa ranks the top 100 anime sites based on traffic and pageviews in the last 30 days.

Let’s get started…

How to use this data

Alexa is owned by Amazon, so they have tons of data on visitors worldwide. From all kinds of countries, websites, devices and so on.

But they’re not perfect (no data company is) so use this to discover new anime websites and blogs.

Or share it with your friends who you think would benefit (or be interested in) this content.

This is the first “top 100” anime post of its kind from a statistical point of view, so it should be interesting for anime fans everywhere.


Facts gathered from this data on anime websites:

  • Almost 100% of the biggest websites have been around since 1996-2003.
  • Less than 1% of anime sites on this list started between 2005-2010.
  • There are HUGE anime websites we’ve never heard of… Because the internet is massive.
  • Almost 100% of anime websites on this list (and the internet in general) are old school.
  • Very few anime sites these days are new, and even less will be around in the next 5+ years.
