Top 5 Apps for Anime Fans


Anime is incredibly popular, not only in Japan, but all over the world. There is so much to anime and with its engaging storylines and relatable characters, it has made itself known to children as well as adults.
While there are a lot of anime resources out there on the internet, keeping a tab on all of them is impossible if you’re always on the move. That’s where these little apps come in handy! You will be able to catch up with the latest news, gossip, episodes and all anime related aspects right on your smart phone or tablet. So read on to see the top 5 that we would recommend.

Anime Radio

crunchyrollThis free app is a must-have for every anime fan. With over 25,000 episodes of latest anime episodes, this app displays the latest and greatest viewing just 1 hour after a TV broadcast. It brings popular series like Naruto Shippuden, Attack on Titan, Bleach and Blue Exorcist right to your mobile device. It is accessible on 3G and 4G as well and can be viewed in either HD or SD.

We must point out that this is a subscription service but worry not, as there are two options. The first one is free and the second one is the premium subscription offering shows 1 hour after it is aired in Japan.

Anime Japanese

japanThis is a great little app that gives you a lot of Japanese phrases that you can learn on the go. With voice pronunciation, phonetic spelling and the accurate spelling, you can start to learn to read it as well. Free on iOS and Android which is a major plus.

uranimeUnfortunately this app doesn’t let you watch the anime series through your mobile tablet, but it is still a lovely handy app for every anime fan. Anime, as well as most TV, is hard to keep track of when you are watching so many shows at once, so it can be a bit of a nightmare trying to pick up where you left off. Uranime is a service that helps you solve that problem by keeping track of the anime that you have watched. The app lets you catalogue your watched anime episodes. Furthermore, you can also pop the episodes that you want to watch in a calendar so you remember later.
Admittedly, it is a little rough around the edges and only available on Android, but it is a great tool for anime fans.
Available on Android
