Anitube





zellfaze
This site is dedicated to providing free Anime streams, they do not allow for licensed anime to be posted to their site. I assume then since the anime is unlicensed that this site is completely legal.

Note to Moderators, please delete this topic if I am confused about Legality of this site.

This site has several animes and anime movies, including the first 16 episodes of Ah! My Goddess and Ah! My Goddess' Movie.

Their list of animes is very extensive.

Enjoy! Very Happy

Well, strictly speaking, it's not. 'Licensed anime' usually refers to animes which have been licensed in the US. It doesn't actually mean that _nobody_ owns the rights to that particular anime, it simply means that it hasn't been licensed in the US yet. The main reason why most sites wouldn't dare include 'licensed animes' is that these media companies from the US would throw a bunch of lawsuits at them if they did include such animes. On the other hand, some of these unlicensed animes are actually licensed in other parts of the world, it's just that most of the time, the media companies from these countries don't really bother suing you if you don't use their [dubbed] content. Also, note that different countries have different laws so some countries might have stricter policies regarding these kinds of media and others might have more lenient laws.

Well, the bottom line is that animes come from Japan, and luckily, Japanese media companies aren't 'annoying' as their US counterparts. If that were the case, then no site would have the guts to include animes in their sites since doing so is clearly a copyright violation. I hope this helps.

Thank you. You did clear up a lot of my confusion on Licensing and Legal issues with Anime. That was something I was hoping to figure out, you have just saved me a lot of time.

Well a Chinese saying goes (this is horribly translated by me, mind you): In the U.S., people get bored so they just sue people left and right, whether it's for no reason, whether the opportunity arises, or just because.

Thats cool, I didn't know there was an anitube. AnimeSuki also only allows non-licensed anime on there site. I'm not sure if its legal or not but usually unlicensed anime gets fansubbed. Even though if you did a bit more searching....you know what I mean.

Suing is the American way (sadly). http://www.animevenue.com/ is another great site for unlicensed anime. It has a very large selection also, but they link to their animes, I like how Anitube has their own player.

Sweet! I figured something like this existed. Now I can watch the episode of Higurashi I'm missing and make my brother watch Death Note.

Animesuki although takes licensed anime off their torrents operates at the "gray area" of the internet world. Then again most things on the internet operates in the 'gray area." I used to use it, but they took off so many anime, I had to find places that operated in the "gray area" but leaned more toward black. Wink

Anime DS is also a great site, in my opinion. http://www.anime-ds.com
They offer both streaming and downloadable media. Back then, they were hosting the streaming videos in their site, as far as I know and remember. Now, however, all their new contents are uploaded to megavideo.com and they just place the links in their site. Their old content are still hosted by the same server, though it seems that the videos no longer load.

Just sharing... I might also visit the other sites listed here when I get the time to do so. Smile

thanks for the information about all of the great sites, a couple of them were really great!
dude_xyx
Well now I prefer to watch it online rather than download it. My hard disk is fulled with all stuff. So I'm prefer to watch them online though they are low quality.

Weird, I thought streaming anime episodes was illegal. I'll have to check that site out.
