Ah, my fellow otakus, if you're anything like me, you can't get enough anime content. And let's be honest; sometimes, our wallets just can't keep up with our binge-watching habits. But fear not, my weeby friends, for YouTube has got our backs!

Not only do they have a boatload of amazing anime content, but they also offer a plethora of free content for us to devour with reckless abandon.

So let's grab some popcorn, cozy up in our favorite anime onesie, and get ready to indulge in some amazing, cost-free anime goodness on this marvelous platform!

Anime On YouTube

Well, well, well, it seems like copyright law is still as complicated as trying to understand the plot of Inception. And things can get as complex as the Space-Time Continuum when it comes to our beloved anime.

With a massive global fanbase and a vast selection of titles, anime has to deal with laws that vary depending on where and when you're watching. But don't you worry, my fellow anime enthusiasts! You don't need to have a secret decoder ring or be a super exclusive streaming site member to get your fix.

Nope! You can head over to YouTube, where there's a whole heap of awesome anime content just waiting for you to watch...and, for the record, we're talking about legit, non-pirated shows here!

So, whether you're a seasoned otaku or a newbie just dipping your toes into the anime pool, there's no excuse not to indulge in some glorious, free anime goodness on YouTube!

Sherlock Hound

Watch Here: TMS Official Channel – Full Playlist

It's like if Goofy and company took a trip to the Wild West and decided to spruce things up with some serious steampunk vibes. And would you believe that this masterpiece came about due to a collaboration between an Italian broadcasting corporation and a Japanese animation company?

It's true! We give you Sherlock Hound, the lovechild of RAI and Tokyo Movie Shinsha, first aired in 1984 and 1985.

Now, you might wonder, "If it's so great, why haven't we seen any sequels or updates?" Well, that's just part of the charm, my dear Watsons. This show is so good that it doesn't need any gimmicks or cheap tricks to keep us hooked. And thanks to the good folks at TMS, we can still enjoy this gem in all its remastered glory on their official anime channel on YouTube.

Revolutionary Girl Utena

Watch HERE - Nozomi Entertainment - Full Playlist

Ah, Revolutionary Girl Utena. It's the anime that made us all question our own gender identity and had us reaching for our swords (or maybe that was just me?). This show has been a fan favorite since it first graced our screens in 1998 and has kept us all under its spell ever since.

And, get this, you don't need a secret knock or a password to access it because it's all available on Nozomi Entertainment's official YouTube channel! That's right, my fellow otakus; you can immerse yourself in this fantastical world of magical girls, princes, and everything.

It's the perfect blend of surrealist design, allegory, symbolism, and open interpretation, all woven together to create a masterpiece that truly stands the test of time.


Watch Here

Ladies and gents, it's time to let it rip with the iconic anime, manga, and game franchise that's been spinning its way into our hearts since 1999 - Beyblade! That's right; this beloved franchise has been around for so long that it's starting to make us feel nostalgic.

But don't worry, my fellow Beyblade enthusiasts, because the original animated shows from the early 2000s are still alive and well, thanks to the magic of the internet.

From 2001 to 2003, we were blessed with not one, not two, but THREE seasons of pure Beyblade goodness. And while the newer spinoffs like Beyblade Burst are great, there's nothing quite like returning to where it all started.

But let's be real here; it's not just about the show - it's about the community that's grown around it. There are fan-posted materials aplenty, and you can feel people's love for this franchise.

And if you want to indulge in all the Beyblade action your little heart desires, look no further than the BEYBLADE Official YouTube channel.

Chibi Maruko

Chibi Maruko-Chan English – Full Playlist

Picture this: it's the 1960s in Japan, and a young producer is living their best life. Fast forward a few decades, and we've got Chibi Maruko, the anime that's brought joy to Japanese TV screens for what feels like forever.

This beloved show is based on the producer's memories of their childhood, and it's been entertaining us since the 1990s (and yes, it's still going strong today).

The main character is none other than Maruko Sakura, an elementary school girl who's living her best life with her family. And let me tell you, folks, they know how to have some wholesome fun and hijinks that are on par with all your favorite American sitcoms.

We're talking The Brady Bunch, Happy Days, you name it! But here's the best part - you can indulge in all the Chibi Maruko goodness on the official Nippon Animation YouTube channel.

And the best part?

It's safe for work and the whole family, and it's guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime

Crunchyroll Dubs – Episode 1

Prepare to have your minds blown, RPG enthusiasts! We've got a quirky comedy here to shake things up and take you on an adventure like no other. You might know it as TenSura or Slime Isekai, but we prefer to call it That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.

This anime isn't just a satire of the fantasy genre - it's a hilarious poke at all the RPG players out there. Our protagonist is a boring character who goes through a sudden and unexpected metamorphosis when they're reincarnated in a fantasy world in, let's say, a less than ideal form. It's all in good fun, right?

This might be a more recent addition to the anime scene, but that doesn't make it any less awesome.

The show had a few hiccups due to COVID, but fear not, my fellow otakus, because the first episode is now part of the Crunchyroll Collection of anime to watch on YouTube.

And the best part? It's free, and you can watch it from the comfort of your own home!

Fairy Tail

Crunchyroll Dubs – Episode 1

Attention all anime lovers! Get ready to embark on an epic journey with Fairy Tail - the anime that has captured our hearts (and screens) since 2009. And guess what? You can watch it for free in the dubbed form on Crunchyroll. That's right, folks, it's time to get your wizard on!

The story follows a wizard named Natsu Dragneel, who's on a quest to find a dragon. But here's the twist - the dragon in question is Natsu's adoptive father, Igneel.

As he searches for his lost guardian, Natsu meets some unforgettable friends along the way, and let me tell you, folks, they're quirky, badass, and ready to kick some serious butt.

The anime world can be a little...crowded. But what sets Fairy Tail apart is its ability to seamlessly blend fantasy, horror, and comedy into one epic adventure. It's like the ultimate medley of awesomeness, and we can't get enough of it.
