When you just don't know what to watch.

What We're About

How’s it going? I’m Kyle, the creator of this wonderful website.

I created this website with a simple goal: to help people find new shows to watch. I love anime. I watch anime almost every day. Often, I would find myself struggling to find a new show to watch, which is especially difficult after you finish a great one. So I thought...why not have a website that helps people find new shows? Thus, this site was born through my mutual love of anime and web design.

I would just like to say thank you for using RandomAnime.org. I appreciate your visit, and hope you come back to visit again.

Why do things keep changing?

I'm human, so as time goes on, I learn new things. As my knowledge of web design grows, I implement that into this website. I am constantly looking for a better way to do things. Sometimes a new idea fails, but it could also succeed, and that chance of success is exactly why I try. I'd rather fail a hundred times to make one thing outstanding, than to not fail at all and just be average.

Why are there advertisements?

I hate them. You hate them. Unfortunately, they are necessary. Running the website costs money, and advertisements are necessary to cover those costs. I do my best to make sure they are as unobtrusive as possible. I do have a system in place, in which you can sponsor an ad-free day. If you are interested, you can learn more about it on the ad/donation system page.

Third Party Websites

There are a few sites out there that I have to rely on in order to help you not only find a show to watch, but also find a place to watch it. Where this is most prominent at is on the anime landing pages, where I suggest websites where you can watch the given anime at. I want to make sure that you make the right choice on where to watch the show; therefore, the following is a detailed analysis of each streaming website I suggest as well as their pros and cons.

Netflix

Netflix

The popular streaming giant is well-known around the world. Unfortunately, anime shows aren’t high on their priority list and they don’t add popular titles very quickly, either.

Pros

  • Legal Streaming
  • Safe / Secure
  • Sub/Dub Available
  • Ad-Free

Cons

  • Requires Membership
  • Limited Selection
Hulu

Hulu

Where there is Netflix, there is usually Hulu. Hulu is a little bit more friendlier when it comes to anime shows, which is nice, but it comes at the price of a membership and advertisements.

Pros

  • Legal Streaming
  • Safe / Secure
  • Sub/Dub Available
  • Good Selection

Cons

  • Requires Membership
  • Ads before / during show
Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll

The hotbed of legal streaming anime, Crunchyroll is the go to choice for many anime watchers. It's nice to know that it is perfectly legal and, for a small membership fee, you can say goodbye to any and all advertisements.

Pros

  • Legal Streaming
  • Safe / Secure
  • Great Selection

Cons

  • Membership (For an ad-free experience)
  • Limited Dub Available
Funimation

Funimation

Where do you go to watch a good dub? Funimation. Don't let that fool you though, they also have a good selection of subbed anime as well. They usually have "SimulDubs" that come out weekly each season, sometimes only a couple weeks behind the subbed release.

Pros

  • Legal Streaming
  • Safe / Secure
  • Good Selection

Cons

  • Membership (For an ad-free experience)
  • Limited Sub Available
9Anime

9Anime

Can't find that anime you want to watch anywhere? It's probably on 9anime. Their selection is top notch. The UI is beautiful; just a shame that they rittle it with ads, including overlay ads.

Pros

  • "Free"
  • Best Selection
  • Sub/Dub Available
  • Great UI

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • AdBlock Must Be Disabled To Play Videos
  • Advertisements
  • Multiple Overlay Ads Per Session
AnimeHeaven

AnimeHeaven

Just like 9anime, AnimeHeaven has a great UI. Their selection may not be as great as 9anime, but they still have a wide variety. Advertisements seem to be under control, with no overlay ads.

Pros

  • "Free"
  • Great Selection
  • Sub/Dub Available
  • Great UI

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • AdBlock Must Be Disabled To Play Videos
  • Advertisements
AnimeXD

AnimeXD

AnimeXD's layout is nice, but can become cluttered in a hurry. They only have subbed anime, and you better know the exact spelling, otherwise the search won't help you. The website can be very slow to respond at times.

Pros

  • "Free"
  • Great Selection

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • No Dub Available
  • AdBlock Must Be Disabled To Play Videos
  • Advertisements
  • Slow Response At Times
GoGoAnime

GoGoAnime

GoGoAnime has a great selection of both sub and dub options while not having a terrible amount of advertisements. You'll still need an adblocker, but there typically aren't any overlay ads opening up new tabs.

Pros

  • "Free"
  • Great Selection
  • Sub/Dub Available

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • Advertisements
AnimeShow

AnimeShow

Flying low on the radar, AnimeShow typically only picks up newer shows. They have been turning up the advertisements as of late, usually having at least one overlay ad per session, if not more.

Pros

  • "Free"
  • Decent Selection

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • No Dub Available
  • Advertisements
  • At Least 1 Overlay Ad Per Session
MasterAnime

MasterAnime

With a UI that has the feel of Netflix, MasterAnime is easy on the eyes. There are some ads, but not too many to hinder the experience. They do overlay ads on the video which, without an adblock, may result in a new tab.

Pros

  • "Free"
  • Great Selection
  • Great UI

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • No Dub Available
  • Overlay Ads On Videos
  • Advertisements
WatchCartoonOnline

WatchCartoonOnline

It's not pretty, but it works. WatchCartoonOnline has a great selection of dubbed anime, sometimes opting to only carry the dubbed vesion and drop the subbed completely. Watch out for the naming convention, as the default here is dubbed, not subbed.

Pros

  • "Free"
  • Great Selection
  • Sub/Dub Available

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • Not The Best UI
  • Advertisements
