About The Website

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?

As you know, running a website cost money. For a while, I tried my best to keep advertisements off of the website and use a donation only model. Unfortunately, that did not work out. I hate advertisements just as much as you, so while they are present, I do my best to make sure they do not disrupt the website too much. If you block the ads, I'm perfectly fine with that (I do too!).

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 summary of each streaming website I suggest as well as their pros and cons.

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

  • Membership Required
  • Limited Selection

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

  • Membership Required
  • Ads Before/During Show

Crunchyroll

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
  • Sub/Dub Available
  • Great Selection

Cons

  • Membership (or Ads)
  • Limited Dub Selection

Funimation

Funimation is the home of dubbed anime. Don't let that fool you though, they also have a good selection of subbed anime. They also have "SimulDubs" that come out weekly each season.

Pros

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

Cons

  • Membership (or Ads)
  • Clunky Website/Apps

HiDive

Newer than the competition, HiDive is a legal streaming site that came about in 2017. They may not have the biggest selection, but a beautiful website and sub/dub selection certainly makes it appealing.

Pros

  • Legal Streaming
  • Safe/Secure
  • Sub/Dub Available
  • Awesome UI

Cons

  • Membership (or Ads)
  • Smaller Selection than Competitors

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"
  • Sub/Dub Available
  • Best Selection

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • Surplus of Advertisements

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, though.

Pros

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

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • Advertisements

AnimeShow

Flying low on the radar, AnimeShow typically only picks up newer shows. They have been turning up the advertisements as of late, having at least one overlay ad per session.

Pros

  • "Free"
  • Good Selection

Cons

  • Not HTTPS
  • Illegal Streaming
  • Advertisements
  • No Dub Available

WatchCartoonOnline

It's not pretty, but it works. WatchCartoonOnline has a great selection of anime. Be careful which shows you click on, as dub is the default for this site, not sub.

Pros

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

Cons

  • Illegal Streaming
  • Advertisements
  • Website Needs Help
