Legal Anime & Where to Watch Them (Updated May 02)


Spring is here and that means New Anime Series!

 There are over 70 new anime series this season, and even just hearing that made me feel overwhelmed, obviously I (or anybody at that) will not be watching every single one of them (well maybe the 1st episode), but where can I watch all of these anime exactly?

 Before anyone is going say a certain (or few) websites, I was talking about LEGAL ways to watch them, I will not going into details for why should you try and watch anime the official way (more on that in the future) I'll just say this, creating anime cost money and if there are ways to support the creators for the shows that you love if you are able to, why not? 

 Although the list seems really limited at the moment (15 at the time of this writing), there are still a few hidden and/or unannounced show coming down the line (Animax on Demand & Crunchyroll) and I'll be sure to update them when any new info are available. There are ways to get around crunchyroll's region lock but that is not the purpose of this article

With that in mind, here are
