5 Best KissAnime Alternatives To Watch Anime

While Kissanime might have departed for the foreseeable future, we list 5 best legal alternatives to watch Anime online for free.

1. Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll

The service with over 1200 anime series and movies, Crunchyroll, is amongst the best Kissanime alternatives. It is a premium service that allows users to watch Anime for free. The premium plans offer HD, ad-free, and simulcast from Japan. 

Secondly, they have a separate section for Manga as well. 

Crunchyroll has been around for over a decade, providing most of the anime series virtually all over the world, except in places with rights overlap.

People on different platforms can reap the service’s multi-platform compatibility, including the latest consoles. All you need is an app installed, and you are good to go.


2. Anime-Planet

Anime Planet

Anime-Planet features Anime series along with mangas. Read Mangas for free online, legally.
With over 45,000 episodes across different Anime series, movies, the fan-funded site provides a seamless anime watching experience.

To top off your enthusiasm for animes, there is a forum attached to the site as well. You can discuss, review, and discover new anime shows.

For the love animes, Anime-planet has partnered with Crunchyroll to provide on-demand anime videos library of Anime shows. You will need to make a donation to the site for access to the HD on-demand video service available in trial mode.


3. Funimation

Next in line is Funimation by Sony. It boasts of over 600 Anime titles, including the original Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, etc.

There are both dubs and subbed Anime content. Funimation is supported across TV, Mobile, and gaming consoles.

Talking about fan favorites, the service has the classics Attack on Titan, My Hero Academia, amongst the slew of new and old titles.

The Sony backed Anime streaming service is limited to developed countries such as the USA, New Zealand, and a handful of countries in Europe.


4. RetroCrush

RetroCrush

RetroCrush is an anime streaming site with a sleek interface, to watch old school anime shows back from the day.

It has a smaller library with exclusive Anime content. If you want to watch retro anime shows, then RetroCrush is the ideal KissAnime alternative for you. 

The fun doesn’t end here. The free anime streaming site has a random button that choses anime for you when you are having difficulty picking one.

Similar to Funimation, RetroCrush is also not available in a few of the developing countries. The streaming site is in beta, and we hope that it opens to more regions soon.


5. VRV

VRV for Anime streaming

Last in the list is a powerhouse with over 2000 Anime titles the last time we counted. We kept it for the last because of the narrow availability of the service around the world.

VRV, pronounced VERV, has indie anime collections straight from the publishers that is difficult to find on the Internet.

They have a premium plan while the free to watch has ads and lower video streaming quality.
