Best and Legal Anime Streaming Sites Recommendation
As a form of appreciation for animators, seiyuu (voice actors in Japanese), and all teams involved in making anime, it's only natural for us to watch their works through legal sites.
Anime on legal sites has been licensed so that it can be shown on the site. The cost we pay for subscribing to streaming services also becomes income for everyone involved in anime production.
At the same time, to accompany those who are at home due to the current situation, we will provide several legal site options that you can visit to watch anime.
iQIYI is a popular streaming site. Chinese dramas dominate this site. But, it doesn't mean that there are no series from other countries. On iQIYI, you can even still watch anime. Its collection of anime is also extensive.
Some famous anime titles that are shown on this site include Attack on Titan, One Piece, and Cooking Master Boy. Don't worry, iQIYI provides Indonesian subtitles. So, you don't have to worry about being confused when watching your favorite anime.
iQIYI applies a service fee starting from Rp12,000 per week. Quite affordable, right? Visit the iQIYI site to start watching.
Crunchyroll is one of the biggest anime streaming sites with more than 850 titles available. Not only anime, but you can also watch dorama (Japanese drama) or read manga (Japanese comics) on Crunchyroll.
You can enjoy Crunchyroll's service for free for 14 days, but of course, with limitations such as ads and restricted content. If you are a fan of anime that is currently airing in Japan, then Crunchyroll is the best choice.
If you are interested in using the full service to access all content and without ads, you can subscribe to Premium Membership per month at a cost of 7.99 US dollars or around Rp122,000.
Netflix has thousands of title collections, ranging from dramas, movies, documentaries to anime. In recent years, Netflix has also increased their original content to make this platform even more exclusive. Don't worry, with Netflix entering the Indonesian market, anime on Netflix also has Indonesian subtitles.

Amazon Prime is a streaming service provided by Amazon. It offers thousands of anime titles for viewers to watch, including not only new anime but also 90s anime such as Pokemon First Movie, Lupin, and Special Adventure Cobra.
Amazon Prime offers a subscription service starting from Rp59,000. One of the advantages of Amazon Prime is that if you only want to watch a specific title and feel that a monthly subscription is too much, you can buy or rent the anime instead.
If you rent an anime title, you can watch it within 48 hours after the transaction is made, while if you buy a film, the anime will be added to your directory and can be watched at any time.
