For all the right reasons, manga and anime have captured the hearts of viewers worldwide. Personally, great storytelling with compelling character development is something that fascinates me about anime. Hand-drawn and computer animation with fantasy themes, colorful graphics, and great characters allow viewers to enjoy captivating content.
There’s no surprise that the demand for anime is at an all-time high. Thus, viewers crave content without having to subscribe to individual networks that air their favorite anime. Instead, they seek for a platform where they can find all the best anime content in one place. One such platform which has amassed great popularity in recent times is the Animeheaven.
What is Animeheaven?
Animeheaven is one of the most trustworthy online portals for anime content. Users tune into this streaming site to watch their favorite animes for free. Other than the free service, you can also make use of the premium offering which allows you to download the content and watch it in HD quality. From the legendary Naruto, Dragon Ball Z to Pokemon, and One Piece, you’ll find the best anime content on this platform.
Animeheaven has had its fair share of struggle. Last year, the developers announced that they will be shutting down the website amidst copyright row. They were attracting over 100,000 viewers a month and with that large number, they came under the radar of original content creators. This was meant to be the end of Animeheaven which had a successful run of over 4 years. However, after a few weeks of discrepancies, the domain was resurrected with different mirror links. (We’ll discuss them later).
Why should you stream on Animeheaven?
Animeheaven as a name signifies its role in the life of an anime lover. Viewers who want to watch their favorite anime in HD quality choose Animeheaven over any other platform. And there are numerous reasons why they do so. Let us check out some of them.
A well-designed interface goes a long way in retaining a first time viewer. Animeheaven with its clean design and user-oriented approach makes browsing and navigation seamless. The landing page along with the website design keeps the user glued to the network and doesn’t make them feel as if they’re on some pirated network. The red/white color combination with a dark theme reminds me of Adobe’s design approach.
Though this could’ve easily been a part of the user-interface section, I feel that it deserves its own recognition. The search bar and the different categories on the website make content search quite easy. You can choose from a wide range of options such as movies, dubbed, animes, popular content, and even check the schedule.
Animeheaven doesn’t just cater to the needs of popular mainstream animes. You’ll get popular as well ongoing, and lesser-known animes on this network. Using the filter option, you can find the content that suits your needs the best. Choose the type of anime – movies or tv series. Choose the audio type – sub or dub, and pick the genre.
Variety of genres
Animeheaven allows you to choose from 42 different genres of content. From action to fantasy, horror to romance, you’ll find a series of movies that suit your taste. Having 40+ genres to choose from is unheard of when it comes to mainstream content. With anime, the niche creation is far deeper which allows the creators to enter a whole new sphere of creativity and distinctiveness.
If you’re just starting your anime journey, this feature is of great help. Instead of searching for a recommendation or trying to watch a random show, you can just follow the schedule. The well-designed schedule for each day helps the users to find new content that they didn’t know about previously. You can access the weekly schedule to check out what’s airing on the website on that particular day.
How to access Animeheaven?
You can access Animeheaven in two ways. First is by searching for the term ‘Animeheaven’. You’ll find the website on the first page of search results. Alternatively, you can use the following link: Animeheaven to visit the website directly. You’d be glad to know that there are several mirror links which you can access if both these methods don’t work. These links are – animeheaven.co, animefrenzy.net, animeheaven.de, and animeheaven.es.
Before you access Animeheaven, just make sure that you have an active VPN. That will help you watch the content without putting your device and identity at risk. Since the website is not legal, using a VPN will also protect you from regulatory authorities. Moreover, you’ll be able to access the website even if the domain is blocked in your country.
I really appreciate the clean design approach. Naturally, I gravitate towards a dark website template. With its dark background, attractive logo, and well-designed menus, I have to admit that Animeheaven ticks all the right boxes in terms of design.
The header section kickstarts the great browsing experience with an Adobe-like logo on the left and search bar beside it. Towards the right, you can find different options such as ‘Anime’, ‘Dubbed’, ‘Series’, ‘Movies’, ‘Ongoing’, Popular’, ‘Schedule’, ‘Random’. You can change the theme by using the button towards the right.
Since there’s a landing page that appears first, you get access to multiple hero sections. First, there’s a search bar at the center under the logo which is followed by details about the platform. On each side, you can find different ads along with premium plugs of different games. At the time of writing this review, there was an ad for a Pokemon Mega on either side.
The second hero section appears when you search or click on any of the options on the landing page. This is the page where you get all the same options in the header section but instead of website information, you get a list of actual animes. You’ll also find a couple of leaderboard ad banners between the text.
The landing page doesn’t have a body section. Even if you click on any options on the homepage, the inner page is filled with content and ads. Thus, there are no tickers, defined sections, or elements that separate the body section from the header or hero section.
In the footer section of Animeheaven, you will find seven different options – ‘anime online’, ‘watch anime’, ‘anime heaven’, ‘animeheaven.eu’, ‘watch anime online’, ‘kissanime’, and ‘sitemap’. Most of these options are mirror links which you can access in case if this website isn’t performing well.
As for the inner pages, I accessed the anime option. Upon clicking the category, I was taken to an inner page where there were a couple of ads at the top. There was a list of different shows – 2 shows per row in a vertical format. Towards the right, there were ads for online games.
People tune into Animeheaven because there’s no dearth of content on this platform. Animeheaven brings the best-dubbed anime for anime lovers around the world. If we take a look at the genres available on the website, we get content in martial arts, cars, adventures, action, fantasy, demons, drama, harem, samurai, sports, horror, josei, magic, kids, military, mecha, music, parody, mystery, shounen, shouju, supernatural, space, thriller, yuri, and vampire among many others.
I’ve been streaming Animeheaven for the past two years now. I have to admit that I’ve had a great streaming experience on this website. However, I do want to point out certain things that I didn’t like a lot. First, the intrusive Bet 365 pop-up ads, ad bombardment of online games on either side and the frequent misclicks. These three were the main problems I faced when streaming on this website. Other than that, the stream itself was good quality and after the initial load time, there was absolutely no hassle.
Suggestions I have for Animeheaven
I’d really suggest the developers look into the misclicks part. I understand that as a free platform, there ought to be ads and popups. I have no problem with these adverts. However, I do have a problem with frequent misclicks.
Overall, Animeheaven is a great website to watch your favorite anime movies and tv shows. Except for the annoying pop-ups and ads, the content you get on this website feels worth the pain. I’d recommend you Animeheaven if you are into anime or you want to start watching anime. Just make sure to use a VPN before accessing the website.
