The websites were closed forever, the owners said.
I am so sad and heartbroken, as are hundreds of thousands of other people who loved the website.
Here's an article on it: https://geekculture.co/pirate-streaming-sites-kissanime-kissmanga-shut-down-permanently-as-japan-cracks-down-on-piracy/
Just like, torrent it? Or use the million other, and dare I say better anime streaming sites.
Oh no, how will normans watch anime now?
Poorer selection, particularly for older stuff.
>he doesn't use gogoanime for streaming
Kissanime was pretty hit and miss, virus and malware galore.
Eat a dick faggot.
why are you posting this cancerous shit
how have you never noticed the cancerous youtube channel spammer before, I think he gets paid to shill this shit, just ignore him
I always assumed it was an illegal pirate site to begin with
Sucks for the people who watch 10+ animes a day
4anime.to seems to have download option in addition to streaming.
Fuck off troll
True, site was great for binge watching or keep up with new releases.
Was also pretty stable, relatively fast, and fixed broken links consistently.
One step closer to a world of completely commercialized data. How fucking depressing.
Long live piracy!
Indeed, I feel as if kissanime took away a lot of the copyright muppets attention from other sites, now that it's gone they'll have more time to spend on taking down others.
The question is once everything is governed and policed, maybe a lot of people won't be using internet as much anymore.
IDK, just found it.
I hope you are wrong but I cant help but agree for the most part. Copyright laws piss me off so much. It has so completely left the realm of its original purpose it just disgusting.
Anime would have almost 0 interest outside of japan if piracy (and by extension fansubbing) was never a thing. Didnt crunchyroll start off as a piracy site too? What a bunch of hypocrites.
Even the most rebellious of spirits slow down and accept the way the world works.
quality was so ass on those site, I'd rather watch paint dry
well, IM GLAD. fuck em
site ll ban your ip if you use adblocker, and not for a hour so the nex time u will come withouth adblock.
No, they ll just blacklist your ip forever, like, fucking why? really? i mean if you are not of the philosophy of never using adblock ever you are forbiden to enter (?.
hell i just hope owners really suffer from its loss, they tried so hard to put their stupid malware ads so deep inside our asses that even normies in youtube will pester them , i mean the site was infamous as hell and now , for some reason, everyone is criying for it loss?
anyone too stupid to feel like the site shuting down is somehow a loss deserves to suffer from it too. lol
now, otakustream , that was a good site.
theres 9anime too but the filter is garbage if you need to find anime before 2015, also the release date checkbox is not hepful as it wont sort as intended.
Just go on KissAnime.nz if you guys miss KissAnime so much, been using that site to watch anime for a while now.
>streamfags on suicide watch lmao.
I thought capitalists like clownfish believed in property rights
That's what I've been hearing about the music industry since Napster, how they were going to kill piracy and take over everything. Back then I took it seriously. Now I just find it hilarious. If anything it's more likely you'll see Sony bankrupt before you see the end of digital piracy.
Thing is, the music industry has “killed” piracy. Everyone except a handful of dedicated pirates just streams music off YouTube and Spotify. So this ain’t to say you can’t pirate, but many people seem to think “why would you pirate?”
I see what you mean but just to be clear, for all intents and purposes, it hasn't killed piracy, not even in quotation marks. Far from it. Pirating stuff now is easier than ever before.
It's a fair statement though that most people just prefer to pay for Spotify. My sister is one of those people. She pays for Netflix and Spotify, and that's alright I guess, but for those who cheap asses like myself out there, rest at ease. Piracy is going nowhere.
i like this approach
the dumb retard normans that previously went to kiss shit will flock to it and watch the ads anwyay so in terms of profit they are at least making money now
Why are you trying so hard to pick fights in this thread?
Why are you committed to nothing but insults and shitflinging.
1080P HD streams is ass quality to you?

Why are you lying?
And nothing of value was lost.
>>34100>virus and malware galore
There's this thing called adblock and ublock origin
I'm still cool with 480 honestly, but that's pushing it a little bit. It's kinda comfy watching Yu Yu Hakusho in 480 though.
I can't believe people still complain about ads nowadays.
Its anti adblock mechanism is pretty sophisticated which won't stream if you block ads, at least it was last time i check
They started doing that then? Hadn't been on it in awhile.
Well it was a race, on and off
People were asking for anti anti blockers and they were fixed in days
What you do is you white list the site when it loads, then you turn on the ad block again before clicking anything.
You will still see banner ads but this kills all pop-ups and other nasty surprises.
Learned that trick from using direct download sites for games, but it works on streaming sites that want to play that game too.
so where do you get your manga?
I know manga panda has pretty much everything but I wonder if nyaa has them too
Recently I thought it is retarded to collect paper manga when you can have everything digitally in one hard drive
Better for the Studios and the animators to be paid than the middle man of Funimation/Crunchyroll and various other types. Manga actually goes to the creators due to the fact Japan heavily controls the licensing and the whole distribution in the West. In Anime it was mostly left to middleman which became too fat and greedy. Good for Japanese studios for taking back control.
I found out there is manga indeed available on nyaa
you just have to search for literature in the filter
they really have pretty much everything you ever want to wish
mangadex is very high quality,use tachiyomi is you have an android phone.
I use mangadex as well, it's great for ongoing manga but often times it has long stretches of missing chapters somewhere in the middle
Even though anime streaming is pretty futile, kissanime is still a very important site. It's a huge archive of the collective efforts of fansubbers that have been distributing anime for decades. There are subs from at least 2005 on kissanime, especially on the longer running/obscure shows.
>japan cracks down on piracy
they will just lease servers in eastern europe and start the game from scratch again
animevibe.tv has a good collection & it also has some obscure shows.No cancerous ads & popups like on kissanime
The death of sites like kissanime is mostly a huge loss for shonenfags only, since no one seeds shows that go on for 20+ years with no breaks in between episodes.
Torrents and soulseek anon. Torrents and soulseek
Just gonna leave this here. It would also be borderline impossible to delete all the content. Just read the sites disclaimer
>>34379>Has all the content the main site had
While we're plugging streaming sites I'm going to recommend https://www.thewatchcartoononline.tv/
It hasn't changed in 10 years and is adblock friendly, and only uses E rated ads anyway. Anime and cartoon episodes are updated sometimes same day and they actually have a lot of older obscure western toons that weren't good enough to get a torrent circulated. Its fuzzy search is reliable and there's strict guidelines for proper season and episode sorting. Most series have descriptions and popular titles will have individual episode synopsis. never a prompt to sign up, accounts only used for uploading. They also use an oldschool player so it works on a potato, buffers fully, and you can just right click on the player to save the video as MP4, and there's a backup player if that doesn't work. I sound like an adbot but this is just one of those rare sites that has everything and presents itself in a no bs way, and I'm really picky when it comes to modern websites. please use please
What so we can watch shittily censored tv versions of anime? Yeah, no thanks. I'd much rather watch the dvd versions in peace
Also, I don't want to be blown up with adds every 5 minutes like normgroid tv
There is dumb cartoon shit on it.
No one is forcing you to watch what you don't want to watch on the site. It has tons of anime in addition to having cartoons.
LoL u pulled a funni
The Pirate Bay and other torrent sites is still running just fine. Torrent data is not centrally stored. All you need is a tracker to provide all the torrent links.
Somewhat similar to steaming sites.
Didn't stop the haters hating.
i would highly recommend this android app called AnYme if you are forced to watch anime on your phone. god it's fucking great. i hate torrenting on my phone. this syncs with myanimelist too, so everything i watch is updated which is great since im a lazy shit
Streaming anime's nice when you cant find an obscure film/show on a torrent site. Also who are you quoting?
i use 9anime when streaming
