  1. Thanks! Would be even more helpful if dub/sub and/or languages available were indicated in this list, unless it’s self-explanatory and I’m just not aware of it…

    1. Thanks for the feedback! While we strive to make sure this list has as much information as possible, sometimes that type of info isn’t always readily available from the stream providers. If we can get it, we’ll see about adding it to our article!

  2. Hey buddy
    I have read your content that’s pretty cool but you skip some new anime sites which in I found these two sites
    1. [redacted]
    2. [redacted]
    Check it and update your content too.

  3. Is it okay if you could add to the Japanese and international English You Tube channels of Chibi Maruko-chan and Coji Coji? Both are from Nippon Animation. They do not have a subtitled version but they do have a English dub (and other languages in the case of Maruko).

    Chibi Maruko-chan Japanese
    Chibi Maruko-chan International

    Coji Coji Japanese
    Coji Coji International
