Top 10 best anime apps –
The first app in the list of top 10 anime apps is the Hit Anime app. The app is not available in the Play store in any region for Android device. The app is one of the best apps to watch the latest anime in the world. The app has a good user interface and design, and you won’t feel any problem in surfing in the app. On the home page, you can see the search bar, from where you can search the anime that you want to search, also there is a section where you can see all the recent launched anime. Hit Anime is the best app to watch the latest and recent animes, that refresh on time, so you never go out of the latest animes. Also, you can find a number of lists, where the first Anime List shows the name of anime, the number of episodes, and also the year of the launch of the anime. Also, you can search the upcoming anime in the Anime Schedule section, you can track the episode launch of your favorite anime. Other than this, the Trending Anime and Popular Anime section will show the anime according to the user ratings, so that you can discover all new anime among the gigantic list of anime apps. Talking about the content on the app, we will say the anime library is gigantic, there are hundreds of anime titles present on the app in every category like Romantic, Adventure, Sports, Sci-Fi, Action, Magic, Horror, Comedy, Super Power, Drama, Fantasy, Shounen, Martial Arts, Fight and a lot more. You can find the rare and popular classic anime easily on the app, and not only this, the app is the house for all the latest anime titles broadcasting these days like Boruto, Tokyo Ghoul: RE, Black Clover, and others. Overall HitAnime is really a good app and you should really try downloading the app, the app is free to use, with no paid version needed to watch any anime and it is a highly recommended app according to us.
For watching anime in the Android device the next in the list of top 10 anime apps is the AnimeDLR. AnimeDLR is one the best-rated app to watch the anime for free, and the database for the animes of different genres is large enough and you can easily find any anime popular that exists, even it is too old. Not only this, you can stream the latest animes easily with the app in high HD quality, also you can watch them later by downloading and saving them offline, just tap the download option, and you can find any of the downloaded anime in the download section of the app easily, and watch them using the app’s own video player. The app simply link the anime from different servers to the video player on its platform so that you can watch them at only one place.
The user interface of the app is not the best of all, but it is quite satisfactory. On opening the app, you will find the app blank, until you find a server from the Sources, to do this, simply swipe right and select the Sources option and select any one server. From that list of anime in the database, you can give them Bookmarks tags to stream them later or download to watch them later. Overall the app is good to watch anime, there is night mode, so you can stream the video and use the app at night to reduce the eye stress. But app may be a mess for the first time users, as they need to search the name of the anime by themselves, as it is hard to discover new anime from the gigantic library, but that’s not a deal breaker at all. You can watch any anime in full resolution, but not when the servers do not support the high resolution, which doesn’t happen generally. Overall the app is the best deal if you want to watch anime for free, the free services are great and you must try the app, both sub and dub versions are present for the anime, but sometimes, the episode gets delay even after the days of launch, but again this is a free app, and it’s not a deal breaker at all.

Viewster is one of the apps for you if you are looking towards a free app to watch your favorite anime. Anime is available on Play store and can be downloaded for free on Android platform. Talking about the Viewster app, the user interface of the app is not the best, but satisfactory, available anime can be found easily with no major issues.

Overall the app is best for anime enthusiasts.
Another app in the list for best anime apps is one of the most popular streaming services in the world, Netflix, almost everyone knows about the Netflix services, but most of the users do not know that Netflix also streams the anime shows. The anime shows in the Netflix database are available for all the countries where Netflix streams show in subbed version. So, who already have the Netflix account can easily watch shows on it. Talking about the anime content, we will say it is not the best option if you are a hardcore anime fan, as there are only a limited number of anime available on the app, some of the names of the anime titles are The Seven Deadly Sins, Knights of Sidonia, One Punch Man, and other 40 animes. Netflix is not a free service, and you need to pay for a single time watching, though the first month is free to watch, we won’t recommend you to buy the subscription if you are interested in watching anime only. But if you want other content, like the famous Narcos, Lost In Space, Sacred Games, and others. Talking about the subscription cost, the Netflix subscription starts from $9.99 to $11.99 per month. And there are a few subscription options you can go for. A $7.99 per month subscription to Netflix lets you watch unlimited hours of whatever movies and TV show you can find on the platform on one screen at a time in SD quality. The middle-tier plan costs $10.99 per month (up from $9.99), and it allows HD streaming to two screens simultaneously. For families with sharing accounts, the $13.99 (up from $11.99) four-screen plan might be a more feasible option. This highest tier also offers HD streaming and unlocks Ultra HD (4K) where available. Netflix is also reportedly testing an Ultra plan for $16.99 per month with HDR video, HD audio, and four concurrent streams. Again it’s not the best recommendation but you should really consider buying the subscription according to your need.
Here is another app for the anime lovers who want a free app. Animega is the app which can be an option if you want a free app for watching the free anime shows on your Android device. The best thing about the app is that it is available on the Play store and can be downloaded on any Android device for free.
