The following are frequent websites used to watch and obtain information about anime. If you're asking yourself 'Where do I watch anime besides from the few shows found on Adult Swim?' then read this.

• MyAnimeList (Provides information on anime and manga series and a 'list' service to help users keep track of anime they are watching, have watched, or plan to watch. Sign up required for lists.)
• Minitheatre (Provides direct downloads of small encoded but decent quality anime. Has a mid-sized library and is slow uploading newly aired anime. Signup required.)
• Tokyoshotan (A torrent catalogue for all anime releases. All subgroups will have their releases uploaded on the website, frequently hours after shows are aired. Most uploads are very high quality, and thus usually not small in file size)
• WatchAnimeOn (A streaming site that has a decent range of anime. Very low quality, but decent for a streaming site.)
• Anime News Network (Provides anime industry related news)
Countdown Anime (Provides a guide for what anime is being currently aired on Japanese Television and when.)

I like Cowboy Bebop.

Ah it's a great anime, and one of my favorites too. If you loved it I can guarantee you'll like Darker than Black. It's like a modern Cowboy Bebop, but with a flying badass electric batman!

Dude you ooze drama. No pity or sentiments from me, playing victim just alienates me. Anyway, good luck with your stuff.

Thanks for telling me. I've been trying to get into more anime lately and I'm waiting for one of my friends to get back from vacation to show me similar stuff. He recommended Lupin the Third and Beck Mongolian Chop Squad, I may have to look them up.

And the same soundtrack composer to boot, IIRC. That said, no matter what you hear, there is no second season. That doesn't exist.

I like loads of anime I just never come in here.


It'd be nice if more anime watchers come in here.


More non-anime watchers and noobs are welcomed too.


We need more diversity instead off all these elitist who call other people's tastes shit.
