Anime/Manga Resources & Questions Thread - You ask, we answer!

Post by PT-Desu on Thu Nov 03, 2011 5:37 am

Thread by FullArmageddon
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!~READ BEFORE POSTING~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you are looking for a torrent/DDL/stream/online reader of an anime/manga -- CHECK AT LEAST TWO OR THREE OF THE LINKS BELOW BEFORE ASKING!!! The first links in each section are usually the better sites - click a link, find the search bar at that site, type in the anime/manga you're looking for and see if they have it. It's not that hard. DO NOT ask for something if you didn't even look for it yourself. If you still can't find it, then ask and we'll be happy to help out.

THIS THREAD IS FOR:
-General questions relating to anime, manga, jdrama, or jmusic.
-Asking where to download/watch/read specific anime & manga if you can't find it yourself.
-Asking for anime/manga recommendations.

This thread also contains resources to help you find anything anime/manga related and more. Resources for each category are listed in order from most resourceful to least (based on opinion). If you know of any other sites, please tell me and I'll add them. Also, if you can think of any other categories that you want added, I'll also add those upon request.


NOTE: You may have to register at some sites before you can use their services; however, nearly all sites listed below are completely free of charge.

Please report any broken links.

Needs to have http://www.batoto.net/ up there, it's like the only online manga reader scanlators actually endorse.

I agree with saint, batoto should be at the top of the Manga Reader list. If the scanlator's site itself doesn't have it's own Online Reader I use batoto.

@Ghostcell:

http://www.mangafox.com/search.php?name=Watashitachi+no+Shiawase+na+Jikan

Couldn'f find the other one..yet.

@ASecondChance:

It's pretty decent. With the relationship thing (without trying to spoil too much, this is just from episode 1), the main character (Ohana) is friends with a guy who confesses his love to her, but she doesn't really respond back with an answer and the bitch runs away. It's probably one of the most wackest relationships you'll ever see, but they will get closer and the show goes on.

There are quite a few links up there that don't work anymore.

Yeah, but not all series are on stream sites.

If you can find me a stream site that has the Patlabor OVA and English subs for the series, then I will be happy (still looking for that).

Yeah older series are going to be harder to find on streams.

That's why I use BakaBT for all my older anime series. Yes its a torrent site, but you'll find no better library of older and quality anime.

The downside to BakaBT, anything licensed by Funimation will not be found on the site. Odds are that's one of the reasons they are able to stay around.

Yeah, don't mess with Funi, they will screw you over. That is why my anime club tries to not show stuff licensed by Funi. We just don't want to take those risks.

True, but they have everything they have licensed up for stream on their site, so that's not so bad.

Bandai Entertainment will no longer offer new DVD, BD, or manga releases starting February.

Thought it was appropriate.

Claymore will be tough to find since its a Funimation licensed series, hence why Baka does not have it.
