Animeseason.com – A Free Way to Watch Manga
Animeseason.com is a website dedicated to the enjoyment of Japanese animation. There are hundreds of different anime series available on the site, listed alphabetically. Fans of any of these animation series may dig deep into the archives, watching multiple episodes of Accel World, Hyouka, Naruto Shippuuden and many others – all for free.
Each individual manga has its own individual page with details on the title, type and year of creation. There is a listing of the genre each show fits into, and whether it is ongoing or complete. A short but useful summary of the series is paired with an image, usually the cover picture from the DVD set. The manga on animeseason.com are all rated by viewers, showing the total number of likes and dislikes registered by visitors to the site. Finally, the episodes are all listed in numerical order beginning with the premiere. Clicking on each episode link launches it in an on-screen player. Download times are fast, and the video is easily controlled with the viewer’s mouse. There are three different players – Mp4up, Yourup and Sapo – available for use for each video.
Some of the episodes play cleanly, but others have ads that must be played before the actual amine starts. Most if not all episodes have the original Japanese soundtrack with English subtitles, thus preserving the most authentic viewing experience. Buttons on the player allow the watcher to ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ the episode, or report problems to the administrator of the site. Animeseason.com is an excellent way to stay up to date on favorite series, or to gain knowledge of new editions of this popular art form.
