With YouTube channels like Muse Asia and AniOne, as well as Gundam.info and others, the video streaming site has quite the library of free and legal anime already. However, in an effort to combat anime piracy, more anime are coming to YouTube for free as well. This includes the new AnimeLog YouTube channel, which has now officially launched their first batch of free-to-watch anime.
Toei Animation, Kodansha, Nippon Animation, Tezuka Productions, Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions, and Shinei Animation were the ones which teamed up for this new YouTube channel. It promises some very big anime titles with the purpose of having to “post free content for fans to watch with official subtitles so they aren’t forced to torrent episodes”. It aims to release over 3,000 anime titles by 2022, and the best part is it’s all free.
So far, they have launched the first episodes for the following anime:
- Ahare! Meisaku-kun
- Hello, Anne (Before Green Gables)
- Hungry Heart
- Fantastic Children
- The World of GOLDEN EGGS
- Jungle Emperor (Kimba The White Lion)
And the channel does promise a lot of titles to come. From the a previously-released launch video, it looks like they will include Attack on Titan, Fullmetal Alchemist, Dragon Ball, Naruto, Fate/Zero, and many other titles. They also promise plenty of classic anime, such as Astro Boy and Black Jack as well! So yes, no more “I cannot afford to pay for Netflix or other streaming services or cable” excuses.
