Anime NEW is shutting down! Here's a free anime site to take its place!

By momoka

Anime NEW is a video site where you can watch anime for free.

As a free site, many are concerned about safety and possible closure.

Therefore, in this article, we will introduce you to the safe use of Anime NEW and similar sites.

What is Anime NEW?

Anime NEW is a site where you can watch anime for free.

Not only anime, but also movies and OVAs can be viewed.

The site had a simple layout and comfortable operation.

Many famous works such as Lesero and Kingdom are uploaded and can be viewed for free.

Although there are many sites uploading animation works, OVAs and animated movies are often not uploaded.


I can't see Anime NEW and can't log in

There is a lot of talk about not being able to see and log in to AnimeNEW.

I actually looked into Anime NEW.

and it seems that you have to log in to view the site.

Anime NEW is difficult to use.

Anime NEW is a foreign illegal site where you can view anime for free. It is difficult to use because everything is written in English.

It also does not offer a download service, so communication fees are quite expensive.

Furthermore, it is extremely likely that computer viruses are planted in pirate sites such as Anime NEW and Manga Village, and various kinds of damage can be expected. It is very likely that they will be shut down one day.

Similar sites to Anime NEW

There are a number of sites other than Anime NEW that offer free viewing.

Like Anime NEW, these sites are all overseas, so there is a risk of virus infection.

Use them with caution and at your own risk.


B9DM is an overseas site, but the site is written in Japanese and is designed for Japanese users.

High quality animations are uploaded, especially the hottest new animations.

In the "Movies New" section of the main menu, there seems to be a large amount of recently broadcasted TV programs uploaded.

Anime Nova

Anime Nova uploads around 10 anime every day.

Although the site has been in operation for only a short period of time, starting in June 2015, many of the anime are grouped by series and are easy to find.

The site is in English, but the anime titles are in Roman characters, so ease of use did not seem to be a problem.

Anime Nova uploads not only anime but also manga.

However, since they are translated into English, those who are not good at English may not use this site very often.

Anime plus

Anime plus is a website that is completely the same as Anime Nova.

Anime plus has been in operation longer (since March 2011), so it is thought that Anime Nova was launched as a mirror site of Anime plus.

Anime plus is often used when the video playback is a little slow and the anime you want to watch cannot be found on any other site.

Good Anime

Good Anime is similar to Anime plus.

Although the period of operation was unknown, it seems to be a mirror site of Anime plus.

It is thought that they are operating multiple sites so that they do not lose advertising revenue even if one of them closes down.

There is constant access from Japan, and the ease of use seems to be no different from Anime plus.


This time, we looked into Anime NEW.

Anime NEW is a site where you can watch anime for free.

However, please note that it is an illegal site, and uploading or selling without permission is subject to criminal penalties.

I would also like to recommend legal anime distribution sites U-NEXT and ABEMA Premium over Anime NEW.
