Watch Anime in 2017 - Legal Anime Streaming Sites

In 2017 anime fans can watch anime legally from many providers. If you watch anime, you better watch it online on a legal anime streaming website that has a large anime catalog. This is the list of all known websites where you can watch anime legally ranked from the best and most complete anime list catalog to the rarest animes or quality reviews.


AnimeBananas is an anime start up that provides anime from legitimate providers, Crunchyroll, Hulu, Viewster and more. Their anime list is the largest and they help accessible and easy to find.

I recommend to watch anime on, legal anime streaming.

When you are logged in on Crunchyroll and watch anime on AnimeBananas, your anime progress will update on both sites.


Crunchyroll is the famous, official, legal streaming anime videos including Naruto Shippuden, Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, Skip Beat, and Shugo Chara. Start watching now. They are great, especially if you download their App to watch online on iOS devices. You can't watch Crunchyroll via AnimeBananas on iOS devices.

TV Shows and Movies - Watch Your Favorite TV Episodes and Movies Online | Hulu

Hulu has a great library for anime. They also partner with various other sites to reach a larger audience.

Watch Free TV & Movies Online | Stream Full Length Videos | Tubi TV

TubiTV provides a lot more than anime just like Hulu. Their library is large, but not as large as Hulu or Crunchyroll.


Viewster works in Europe as well. That is their strongest point. They have many titles and also simulcasts. Discover the most original titles across Anime, Drama, Documentaries, Horror, Thrillers and more! Our content is available instantly and free of charge.




iFlix is great to watch anime in South East Asia. It's one of the few legal alternatives. Unlimited access to thousands of TV shows, movies & more. Watch on your phone, laptop, tablet or TV. 30 days full access. FREE!


Crackle provides anime in the United States only. This is quite a bummer, because their library is large.

Funimation - Watch Anime Streaming Online

FUNimation is likely one of the best anime sources on the internet. They are now competitive with Crunchyroll.

Animated TV Shows

Nowadays, YouTube has a great deal of Anime, mostly provided by FUNimation on their official channel. There is also a great deal of shows provided by studios, but these may be hard to find.

Netflix is unfortunately a subscription service, but has a great deal of anime as well.

VIZ virtually embeds their anime from Hulu, whilst they are rights holders of animes. They library is great.


Wakanim is the French anime site.

AniBee has a good library of anime as well.

Website at

AOD is the German anime site.

Home on

AnimeLab is a great anime site, but it only works for New Zeeland and Australia.




Daisuki is a legal alternative created by the Japanese consortium of Anime producers.

Adult Swim

I haven't used AdultSwim, but they have an anime library worth looking into.
