One of the largest illegal anime streaming sites, KissAnimeannounced its final closure through its official website and social networks. The site went offline today so anyone who tries to access the site will only see a screen stating that the files have been removed on the web due to multiple copyright disputes. This also applied to their spin-off office. Kiss manga.


KissAnime was one of the largest illegal anime streaming sites and was particularly well known to the English-speaking audience. The website offered series and films that were usually directly from legal providers such as Crunchyroll and Funimation. In addition, manga chapters have been published on KissManga without editorial permission.

However, administrators still seem to have access to the domains, so it is not yet clear what led to the closure of these sites. Some reports suggest this may be directly related to the expansion of Japanese copyright law, but nothing has been confirmed.

According to the statistics page SimilarWebThe KissAnime site recently had 95 million hits a year. The site currently ranks fifth in the Alexa ranking. As with other successful illegal streaming sites, several other domains with the same name can be found on the internet. However, it should be noted that it is not the original.
