It is no surprise to anyone that anime is a fever not only in the East, but also in the West. In Brazil, for example, the fan community is huge and growing by the day.
Obviously, a market for websites, applications and streaming platforms dedicated exclusively to displaying Japanese animations has developed. Other platforms, in turn, more comprehensive in their genres, realized this popularity and started to make anime available, with some of them, such as Netflix, even producing their own.
In today's list, we have separated 6 apps that legally make anime available, some free, some through subscriptions! Check out!
Undeniably the most popular platform when it comes to anime, American anime artist Crunchyroll has dozens of anime. Among the most popular we can mention Jojos Bizare Adventure, Attack on Titan, Boruto, My Hero Academy, One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto Shippuden and Classic, among others.
Best of all, you don't have to sign. The service allows you to watch a part of the catalog for free. However, having to put up with the various advertisements inserted in the middle of the episodes. If you want to get rid of them and have access to the full catalog, you will have to subscribe to Crunchyroll Premium, which costs $ 4.99 / ms.
But not everything is rosy: Users report episode loading problems on the smarthphones app, even with fast connections, and screen freezing.
Hidive also specializes in anime. However, it is beginning to take its first steps in Brazil, so it is still not so popular and not so much support for Brazilians. The catalog is still quite limited, and does not have much information as to which titles are in Portuguese or not.
In addition, the service currently has only one title available for free. The rest are only accessible by subscription, which is not as attractive as the service is not yet fully adapted to the Portuguese.
The popular American streaming service Netflix It has a lean but consistent list of anime available. Although not the focus of the platform, it features anime as One Punch Man, Sword Art Online, Naruto, Death note, Bleach and others.
Not only that: the platform is starting to invest in the production of its own anime. Your recent release, Castlevania Horror anime based on the series of video games, has been well received by the community and is already in its second season which may indicate more investments in the production of the genre!
However, the fact that it is not focused on anime makes it have few options, which can be a problem for those looking for a platform to watch only them. The cheapest plan currently costs $ 21.90 / month, entitling you to one screen at a time, but you can try the service for free for a month and draw your own conclusions!
