Top 5 Anime News Sites You Need To Start Reading

Introduction

The following anime news sites are the BEST available worldwide for an English-speaker based upon 4 factors:

  1. Views per month – to present the size of the website.
  2. Average articles per day – how many new articles are published each day on average.
  3. Content – are these articles interesting, short or long etc.
  4. Visual – is the website user friendly and easy to navigate.

These anime news sites retrieve most of their information from tertiary sources such as Twitter and directly from the specific anime’s website. Moreover, as the main source of anime comes from Japan, most of the first-hand news is in Japanese and will be translated from these outlets.

  • Visual – 9/10
CBR

CBR is based in Canada and began in 1995. They post everything about anime, comics, movies, and TV shows.

Good: I REALLY like the look and feel of the site while navigating through all the posts. While reading through the news you actually have articles more than a paragraph long with thought put into it, which is refreshing to see.

ANN covers video games, music, merchandise, events, and live-action media.

Good: It is the go-to place for the latest news on anime and is easy to flick through while zooming through.

Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll news includes video games, music, and popular social media content.

Good: One of the main legal places to watch anime (in addition to Funimation) which gives an abundant amount of news.

Bad: I don’t like clicking next for every 10 articles to view older articles though. (Maybe just me!)

#5 Anime News Sites – My Anime List (MAL)

I tend to delve into many things as I get bored quickly, thankfully anime is so vast and varied. I’m a grown-up who enjoys watching anime and want to share my thoughts on the reasons why. I truly believe the selected anime in my blog are not cartoons (meaning a show for children) but are masterpieces of art which are so twisted at times that you really can see inside of the author’s mind at that exact point in time. I hope you enjoy… 🙂
