Intro: If you’re like me, you eagerly awaited the release of the latest episode of your favorite anime. And now that it’s finally out, you want to watch it as soon as possible. But how? If you don’t live in Japan, watching most anime can be challenging. Thankfully, there are a few ways to make managing your favorite anime easier. In this blog post, I’ll show you two methods for streaming new episodes and one method for downloading them. Let’s get started!
- Make sure you have a suitable device:
To watch anime, you first need a powerful enough machine to run the streaming service and output the video to something visible, be it a computer monitor or a TV. You can watch anime on any of your devices, even on your computer! Which device you use depends on how you want to watch the episode. If you’re going to stream it immediately after it airs in Japan so that the anime doesn’t have time to be pirated before being posted online, you should use a PC. If you want to watch it on your television, the easiest way is to stream it online on Netflix or any such platform. Make sure your device is compatible with the video format you will play.
- File types: MKV vs. MP4
Anime is typically distributed in.MKV (Matroska) format. It isn’t very compatible with many devices, though. Fortunately, suppose you’re watching anime online on your computer. In that case, you won’t have any problems (and the best video players for playing MKVs are developed by Microsoft), but if you’re watching on your game console or streaming device (such as Chromecast), there is a good chance that you can’t play MKV files.
- Find out when it’s airing:
Check the TV schedule to find out when the new episode of your favorite anime is airing. The best way to do this is to go to AnimeNewsNetwork or AllTheAnime, look up your show of choice and see if any sites list the TV schedule. For example, my shows air on Saturdays on NHK at 5 pm Japan time (convert it using WorldTimeBuddy ). If you’re only watching one show, adjust the time zone accordingly. Stay updated with the anime schedule to know what is coming out each week.
- Stream the new episode on the free anime site:
Crunchyroll and Daisuki will stream the latest episode for free in 480p and 720p. The only catch is that you must sign up for a (free) account on their site to watch shows. On Crunchyroll, you can watch shows on your web browser or with an Android app, while on Daisuki, you can watch on your web browser, Android app, or with Roku. Streaming anime online is the best idea when you have no Netflix subscription. Crunchyroll will stream the new episode as soon as it has been released in Japan. As soon as the first 15 minutes of the show have been uploaded, you can watch it for free. Crunchyroll streams anime to the following countries: the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.
- Download the new episode for free:
You can download the new anime episode from torrent sites like u1337x.org. The torrent file of the episode usually becomes available soon after the anime has aired in Japan. Like all other video or picture torrents, anime torrents are enormous files that contain multiple “pieces” (i.e., images) that must be downloaded and reassembled to make a complete copy of the file you want. The best website for downloading anime is HorribleSubs. They only support 480p, though. Their process works like this: go to their site and look up the show you want to watch. Once there, it will list all the episodes of that show. Click on the one you want to watch, and it will give you several links. The link labeled “720p” is generally the best-looking quality, but be warned that it can sometimes take 30 minutes or more to download the first episode.
- Binge Watch previous episodes:
It is a good idea to catch up on the previous episodes if you can get to watch the new ones as soon as they are released instead of having to wait. Binge-watching the previous episodes can also help you prepare for the next episode as it may contain spoilers. You can either download the entire season of episodes or stream them or stream it for free. There are many different sites where you can watch anime for free, but most sites have low-quality videos and annoying advertisements. If you plan on watching much anime, it is probably best to invest in a premium account so that the ads go away and you can support the anime industry by paying for the content.
there are numerous ways to watch the newest anime episode of your favorite anime. You can watch it for free on a streaming site, buy a premium account or download the episode. Since these methods vary in price and features, we recommend researching what suits you best.
