    "What makes this particular anime streaming site stand out from the rest is that it even hosts simulcasts of anime as they become available in Japan. If you always want to be up to date with your shows, this is one of your best options."

DID YOU KNOW?

The first-ever modern Japanese animation production company came after WWII? That company was Toei and it established itself in 1948. The industry shifted from only animated films to include animated TV shows as well. One of the more popular genres of that time was mecha or anime dealing with giant robots or vehicles. This genre spawned many popular shows such as Mazinger Z, Space Battleship Yamato. As well as Mobile Suit Gundam which is a franchise that is still producing shows to this day.

The popularity of the Internet gave rise to online piracy such as anime download sites. This posed a serious threat to the industry. Anime websites offering free anime appeared and spread. Due to the nature of these sites, legal repercussions were present. To battle online piracy, companies found a way to offer anime streaming sites that are safe. Users can visit these anime streaming sites without worrying about legal issues. You can enjoy your favorite anime shows with the best anime streaming services. You can try these sites out for free first or pay a small monthly fee. Either way, you're assured and have peace of mind that these are good and safe sources. You can focus on enjoying watching more and less about where it came from.
