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, 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.

What's with the donation modal?

Advertisements on the site may be gone, but there is still a cost to be paid. Therefore, I created a modal that only shows to returning visitors that tells them a little bit about the site, and asks for their support, in order to help with some of the cost. There is absolutely no obligation. Whether you choose to donate or not, the modal will remain hidden after showing for the first time.

Appreciated, never expected.

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.

About 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
  • Reliable
  • Usually Good Quality
  • Safe / Ad Free
Cons
  • Requires Membership
  • Limited Selection
About 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
  • Reliable
  • Usually Good Quality
  • Good Selection
  • Safe / Secure
Cons
  • Requires Membership
  • Ads before / during show
About 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
  • Reliable
  • Usually Good Quality
  • GREAT Selection
  • Safe / Secure
Cons
  • Membership (For an ad-free experience)
About 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. Thanks to their recent partnership with Crunchyroll, they are dubbing newer anime at an alarming speed.

Pros
  • Reliable
  • Usually Good Quality
  • Good Selection
  • Safe / Secure
Cons
  • Membership (For an ad-free experience)
About KissAnime

KissAnime

If you are looking for the absolute best selection of any anime website, KissAnime has you covered. They have every sub and dub known to man, or so it seems. The only problem is ads lurk around every corner, and not even the best ad blocker can stop them.

Pros
  • No charge
  • THE BEST Selection
Cons
  • Holy Ads, Batman
  • Did I mention ads?
About GoGoAnime

GoGoAnime

So you want the selection of KissAnime without the absurd amount of pop ups, enter GoGoAnime. You will definitely still need your ad blocker, but a new spam tab won't be opening every other click.

Pros
  • No charge
  • AWESOME Selection
  • Usually Reliable
Cons
  • Ads Ads Ads
About AnimeShow

AnimeShow

AnimeShow is a great website to go to if you want to watch a newer show for free. They don't generally hold onto older shows, but almost always have the newest shows. Just beware of advertisements.

Pros
  • No charge
  • Usually Reliable
Cons
  • Good amount of ads
  • Smaller Selection

The dub is also on Funimation

Response

As odd as it sounds, Funimation does not have the dub. They only have a sub version...which is odd.

Image - Nabari no Ou

Error Submission

Not the right image

Response

Thanks for catching that. I had to swap out this anime in the DB and forget to update the image...as well as the links apparently. It has been fixed :)

Genre Selection - School Days

Error Submission

There should also be horror

Response

While I understand where you are coming from, I can not find any other resource that classifies this anime as a horror, so I'm going to have to pass. Thanks for reporting!

Genre Selection - Mekakucity Actors

Error Submission

I mean there were some funny parts i guess, but a 100% match with the comedy genre?

Response

The percentage system generated inside the list is based on how many of the anime's genres match your selected genres. The percentage has nothing to do with the amount of that genre within the anime. Furthermore, the percentage only shows if you selected more than one genre. So a 100% match meant that this particular show matched your comedy genre and the other one or two you chose.

Genre Selection - Fairy Tale

Error Submission

Ecchi is usually one of the genres on other websites

Response

I'm not finding any site that categorizes this show as an ecchi, especially MAL, which is the primary source I go off of. Thanks though.

Title - Smile Precure!

Error Submission

The actual name of this anime is Glitter Force

Response

The Japanese name for this anime is "Smile Precure!" whereas the English translation is "Glitter Force". I'm assuming you were on some sort of mobile device, as both names are visible on desktop. I will have to take another look at the mobile layout to see where I can make some adjustments as both the primary and alternate names should be available on all devices. Thanks for reporting!

Yeah this definitely isn't a TV-PG show. This has been fixed. Thanks.

Other - Dear Boys

Error Submission

There is no sub available for Dear Boys

Response

I'm not sure what you mean. The show is available on 2 of the listed platforms (KissAnime and GoGoAnime), both of which have sub and dub options available. I double checked the links, and they are functional.

Image - Deadman Wonderland

Error Submission

The Anime Deadman Wonderland never showed these characters except for the 2nd and 3rd person(starting from left to right) Resulting in thinking these other characters would be shown. This image refers to the Manga, therefore is causing viewers to believe they will show up in the anime..(Which they never do)

Response

I've updated the image to something more appropriate. Keep in mind, due to cache, it can take a little while for the new image to be swapped in. Thanks for reporting!

Description - Yuri!! on Ice

Error Submission

The main character's name is "Yuri", not "Yuuri".

Response

It seems there are sources that spell it both ways. As I rely on MAL as a resource, I'm going to leave it with their spelling. Thanks for reporting.
