Ever since the appearance over 30 years ago of mangas and animes that we now consider classics, as is the case of Dragon Ball or Sailor Moon, the fans of these sorts of Japanese stories, with their characteristic cartoon style, haven't stopped growing.
Nowadays, it's no longer necessary to wake up at 7 a.m. to watch Dash Kappei or Science Ninja Team Gatchaman on TV, or order from the nearest geek store the latest volume of One Piece. Now, anime and manga fans have loads of resources to enjoy their favorite hobby straight from their Android device.
Enjoy anime and anime via streaming or direct download.
This application, for instance, comes along with a never-ending list of Japanese animation movies and series that users can watch on their Android device (from the native player or any other one) or download them to watch them later in a much more comfortable place.
More anime than what you'll ever be able to watch
AnimeDroid, as this application is called, shows us on its interface, different servers with multimedia contents that are strictly related to manga and anime. Every video or file shows the languages that it's available in (Japanese or English, with or without subtitles) and specifies whether it can be watched online via streaming from the native player, from a player of the user's choice or if it can be downloaded.
On a very eye-catching pink interface, the application shows us the following features, that are simple but sufficient for its purpose:
- List of different anime providers ordered alphabetically and by language.
- Each anime video comes along with detailed information about the language, video quality and the possibility to be viewed offline or downloaded.
- Some providers show the covers of the anime series or movie.
- Includes episodes of famous series like Naruto Shippuden, Detective Conan, Astro Boy or Kaichou wa maid-sama.
Can I watch the videos without adverts?
That's the question that the majority of users of this application ask themselves. The truth is that the adverts of this app are somewhat invasive as there's always a banner on the home screen and a huge wallpaper each time we want to watch a video. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about it and the developers (who are also entitled to receive some income with their adverts) don't offer a paid version of their APK without ads. You'll have to appraise whether the contents are worth the hassle.
