AnimeZone Shuts Down: Top 5 Best Anime Apps like AnimeZone

Last updated on February 22nd, 2022 at 12:26 pm

AnimeZone was a perfect anime app for android users. Within a short interval of time, it gained popularity exponentially. Not only it provided anime episodes for free, but also, with its content variety and streaming quality, it was an absolute lifesaver. Whether it was for dubbed or for subbed episodes, fulfillment of every demand was made available.

Just having this app installed on your android, you would have been able to keep track of all the news surrounding your favorite anime and manga. And catching up with anime in lockdown had been a more leisurely journey with AnimeZone.

But these rejoice and triumph soon came to an end when it was announced that AnimeZone would shut down, and the app stopped functioning a few months ago.

According to the notice shared by the app developers, it was caused by the copyright strike from Funimation. In mid-April, the app stopped responding, and all the users were disheartened.

One of the best apps to watch animes on, and for free, let’s look at all of AnimeZone’s good properties that we miss and the disadvantages it had.

AnimeZone Advantages –

  • Ad-Free- It even provided ad-free streaming, so the users did not have to go through the trouble of bearing with the ads.
  • High-Quality stream 360, 480, 720p- And most importantly, one could watch anime episodes in high quality and have the option to choose from 360, 480, and 720p.
  • Availability- Moreover, it was easily available and accessible using any web browser. And anyone could watch animes on it from anywhere.

AnimeZone Disadvantages –

AnimeZones’s disadvantages could vary from user to user.

  • Since the app uses links for every episode, one might find it slow and inconvenient to go from one episode to the next.

Overall, the developers had done a tremendously good job by actively updating it, with new improvements, from time to time. But then again, once Funimation takes action, nothing of such sort survives for long. Still, we can all acknowledge how AnimeZone was one of the best attempts done for anime apps.
