    "Kodi is an excellent open source media player that is far more high quality than I expected. It is not without its bugs but it is still beyond any of its competitors and well worth trying."

    "Netflix is certainly a well-known streaming app, but they are not exclusively for streaming anime. I am wondering how much anime they have in their collection and whether there are any services that exclusively offer anime streaming. I will check it out, but I'm not convinced it's the best option for me."

    "One problem with this app is every time you start it up, it loads a playlist of random shows for you to watch. That wouldn't be so bad if you have a fast connection and are really into the random shows they pick for you, but if your connection is slow like mine, or if you just want to watch one or two specific shows, it can be a real pain. It's still a handy way to watch what you want, but the random playlist feature is just unnecessary."

This is a free app that enables me to download lots and lots of movies and TV shows and watch them right on my smartphone.

    "There's not enough anime here to make Crackle worth getting for that reason alone. But, if you want the other programming available as well, there's a small, but decent anime catalog available. "

    "If you love watching anime, this app is perfect. There is a great variety of shows, and the ads are not too bad. My only complaint would be that you have to manually click to watch the next episode instead of letting it autoplay."
