Animelab is one of the best free legal Anime streaming sites to watch any anime online. The site has a simple and easy to navigate interface and houses more than 741 anime tv shows and movies including popular series like Fire force, Demon slayer, One punch man, Boruto, etc.
Since AnimeLab offers a premium membership subscription, the site sets some certain limitations for free accounts such as only English subs are allowed, no access to English dubs (only on premium), ad breaks, and the streaming quality is capped at 480p (If you want higher-res, you’ll have to be on the premium membership subscription).

Also, the number of Anime series and movies you can watch using a free account is limited, but still, you can enjoy most of the best streaming series and movies on the site.
Crunchyroll is another great anime streaming site and one of the most popular too. It is a legal anime streaming site and also offers premium subscriptions like AnimeLab. But unlike Animelab, all anime shows are entirely free to watch in English subs and Dubs (available in other languages too) but there’s a catch for all the goodness you’re getting for free.
Like Animelab, the streaming quality is limited to 480p for free users and you’ll also encounter ads while watching anime on the site. While Animelad is exclusive to Australia and Netherlands, Crunchyroll is available globally, however, some contents are restricted to some locations. A good VPN will also help you get pass that.
Also, free users will have to wait a few days to get access to watch new episodes since they are not instantly available. If you can’t wait to get access to new anime episodes, you can read the original series manga on webtoon.
Funimation is also one of the most popular legal anime streaming sites to watch anime online. It is owned by Sony and is well known for dubbing anime which makes it a great choice for anime fans who prefer to watch anime in English dub.
Funimation has a simple interface with easy site navigation but unlike its competitors, it has a limited nime library. Some of the popular anime streaming on the site right now include Sword art online, Black Clover, Fire force, Fruits Basket, and more.
Funimation allows you to watch most of its anime for free too but also displays ads like Crunchyroll. At the moment, Funimation is only available in the U.S., Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand but will be extended to Brazil and Mexico this fall. You can, fiction using a good VPN.

Interestingly, Netflix has several original anime series including Drifting dragons, Castlevania, Baki the Grappler, Violet Evergarden, and more. It also has English dubs of several trending anime.
Netflix, however, doesn’t offer free viewing like Animelab, Crunchyroll and Funimation. To watch Anime on Netflix, you need to have an active subscription. It offers three subscription plan; Basic, Standard and Premium.
The basic plan cost $8.99/m for 1 device and streaming quality is limited to 480p, the standard plan cost $12.99/m at 1080p for two devices and users will enjoy 4k+HD viewing with the premium plan for $15.99/m on four devices.
