Japanese anime is no longer restricted to Asian countries. In the past few decades, it has been able to gather a lot of attention from the European and North American regions. Packed with fascinating storylines, graphics, and animation, animes seem to get popular year after year.
Though the industry has evolved since its inception over a century ago, the main premise – the crux of storytelling has remained the same. These shows emphasize character development and innovative ways of narrating a story. That’s what separates anime from contemporary animation in the west.
What is Animejo?
Animejo is a free anime streaming website that provides viewers with the best anime content. You’ll find various anime series on the network ranging from the latest to the most classic titles. You’ll find full series listing along with genre details, rating-based content and on-going content. Animejo allows you to pick the content you’d like to watch based upon your taste. The genre sorting feature really helps you to find something that will meet your needs.
Why should you stream on Animejo?
Animejo is quite a decent streaming platform. Similar to all the free anime streaming websites, it too has a number of quality features that help it to stand apart from the rest. The demand for animes has led to a cut-throat competition on the web to grab a viewer’s eyeballs. Let me share a few reasons why Animejo won’t just grab your attention but will turn you into a frequent visitor and a promoter.
Vast Content Library
Animejo has over 1500+ titles on its website. The extensive content library caters to a wide range of audiences across various genres. Apart from your viewing taste, you can also choose how you want to watch the content. Do you prefer subbed or dubbed? It doesn’t matter, because you’ll find both types of content on this network. If the series you want to watch is popular enough, you’re most likely to find a dubbed version.
The weekly schedule is a great way to stay up-to-date with what’s happening on the platform. You get an in-depth schedule for each day. At the time of writing this review, Monday has three shows, Tuesday has five, Wednesday has eight, Thursday has five, Friday has six, Saturday has ten, and Sunday has nine. The best shows are uploaded on Wednesdays (Ahiru No Sora, Radiant Season 2), Saturdays (One Piece, Detective Conan), and Sundays (Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, Vinland Saga, Rifle is Beautiful, Pokemon: Sun & Moon).
Free to stream
Animejo is a free-to-stream website. You can access both subbed and dubbed anime content for free. You can search for your favorite anime in an orderly fashion. Click on any title you want and wait until you get redirected to a new page. Once on an inner page, you’ll find the stream player and upon clicking the play button, the particular episode will start playing. There’s no catch in the form of sign-up or subscription. Just visit the website and start streaming.
Animejo does have advertisements and that’s how the developers manage to pay for the servers. Unlike popular community-run networks, Animejo doesn’t have a massive audience yet. However, all of us can appreciate the subtle effort of the developers to keep the ad minimal. As compared to Chia-Anime, Animejo just has a 20% ad-fill rate. This user-oriented approach shows the developer’s dedication towards serving the audience.
How to access Animejo?
Accessing Animejo is quite simple. You can either search for the term ‘Animejo’ in your search bar or you can use the following link: Animejo. Before you access the website, just make sure that you’re using an active VPN. Animejo isn’t a legal website and thus you’ll be streaming illegally. A VPN will help protect your identity as well as your device from hackers and regulatory authorities.
Animejo grabs your attention instantly thanks to the One Piece favicon and logo. The dark theme and colorful thumbnails are quite a standard feature on most of these anime websites. Nonetheless, the placement of various elements is quite smooth and owing to the design, you feel like sticking around for a longer period.
The header section on the website has four options – Home, Anime, Schedule, and Random. Towards the right, you have the search bar which you can use to find any content directly. If you’re a new user and would likely rely on recommendations, make sure to check out the random option as it will help you get started with a random episode.
I don’t like how the hero section begins with a third-party horizontal banner. However, It doesn’t pop-out and is placed nicely so you can duck it without any issue. The hero section starts when you see the heading ‘Latest Episode’. Under this section, there are seven vertical thumbnails from the latest episodes with a manual slider. You can click on the arrow to slide and check other titles.
In this section, you’ll find the latest anime as opposed to the latest episode. Thus, if you want to start watching a series from scratch, you can make the most of this section. There are seven vertical thumbnails in each row and you get to choose from more than 20 shows by using the manual sliders. This doesn’t mean that there are just those 20 shows. Those are just what you can see on the homepage. Thus, you’re merely scratching the surface.
The inner pages on the website are extremely well-designed, especially the streaming page. There’s a title followed by a detailed summary of each show. Above the description, you have various social media icons and under it, you have a list of all the recent episodes. There’s a thumbnail on the left under which you can find out about details such as Title, Episode, Status, Aired, and Rating.
You can access any content you want on the website. You have a gargantuan catalog to choose from. You can pick between subbed and dubbed shows. Even if you’re not well-versed with the Japanese language, I’d urge you to watch the subbed version first. The extensive content library allows you to watch popular shows such as One Piece, Detective Conan, Naruto Shippuden, Death Note, Pokemon, Demon Slayer, Fairy Tale, Vinland Saga, and Rifle is Beautiful.
I streamed Animejo on my Dell Inspiron i5 and my Google Pixel 4. I had a great time watching Fairy Tale on this platform. The stream was super efficient and there were no signs of lag even though I streamed for 5 hours straight. The device, as well as the website, really maintained the streaming quality throughout and there were absolutely no hiccups during the period. Based upon your internet speed, the initial loading might take a few seconds but once it loads, you’d likely be able to watch the full episode without any discrepancies.
Suggestions I have for Animejo
I don’t have many complaints about Animejo. I like the website and it’s quite appealing. However, I feel that the developers can certainly leverage its design. Right now, it has a similar design approach to other free streaming websites. If it wants to stand out, it needs to head in the direction of streaming sites such as 4anime.
If you’re looking for a reliable streaming service to watch anime content, you’ll be pleased with Animejo. It allows you to watch the best anime content in HD quality for absolutely free. As an anime lover, I’m sure you’ll dig it.
