Top 27 Sites for Free Anime and Manga

Mon, Mar 9, 2009, by px


These are the top 30 sites that you can view and download manga and anime online for free.

For those that are unfamiliar with the word anime or manga, a rough explaination would be anime is actually Japanese animation while manga is of course Japanese comic. You can search for anime via Youtube but most often the video quality leaves much to be desired or the subtitle are in foreign language that you can’t understand, and the worst part is that sometimes there maybe missing episodes. A simple solution would be going to a site that specifically host anime and manga. Here are a list of the best anime and manga sites on the web

  1. Piggymoo A great site with alot of anime selection which can be viewed via streaming online, also available on the site are various tv shows, musics and other services. Check it out, its worth the time.
  2. AnimeWaTaFacts A site specializes in streaming anime. Provide great selection of anime and update frequently.
  3. Get-anime is one of my favourite anime site particularly for its large selection of anime and easy to navigate site. its on this list because the of its “reliability” of its link, the link on this website is checked once in awhile to make sure that they’re still working, so the probability of you getting a dead link is lower.

Vengeance videos is one site that is special in particular for its easy navigation, it provides a decent selection of anime and it is on this list because the anime selection on this site are hosted by the website themself, you won’t see those pesky megavideo links here which impose a time limit on how long you can view their videos.
