The world of anime streaming is a fast-moving one. So much so that since the last time we published one of our UK anime streaming guides there have been some major shifts in the landscape. Daisuki (the site run by Japan’s anime consortium) shut down towards the end of 2017, and a new player entered the market in the form of Hidive. Crunchyroll and Funimation entered a partnership, although with Funimation now owned by Sony, it’s not clear how much longer that will last. And that’s before we even get to the waves made by Netflix and Amazon getting into anime in a big way. So join us as we give you a run-down of all the current places you can find anime legally streaming.
Please Note: The information provided is correct at the time of writing, but in the fast-moving world of streaming, line-ups can change at any time. Continue Reading

No-Rin is about farming, pop idols and big boobs, but most of all it’s about being silly. You might see it as a companion piece to Baka and Test a few years ago, which had both No-Rin’s future director (Shin Oonuma) and its production studio (Silver Link). We could tell you about the story – and we will in the next paragraph – but it’s more informative to say that No-Rin’s characters can get into a freewheeling five-minute argument about the meaning of panties, or that there’s a whole episode based round selling naughty-shaped vegetables.

“I don’t want to have any regrets when I die,” Japanese singer Fuki says backstage after finishing her last performance at Hyper Japan. The 30-year-old singer beams as she says this, still dressed in her Lolita-inspired black and red dress that she performed in earlier on. This may seem cliché, but Fuki may well be one of the hardest working musicians in Japan right now. Continue Reading

Throw an imaginary rock at the anime industry and it won’t take you long before you hit a sports anime. There’s a series dedicated to almost every sport out there, and even in the current season there are at least three sports anime that come to mind. Are you only interested in swimming? Not a problem! Tennis? Maybe even Ping Pong? The fact is there’s plenty of sports anime out there to choose from but, really, very few have had quite the same level of success as Yuri!!! on Ice, MAPPA’s ice-skating anime sensation.

Hi everyone! We hope you're all doing well and had a great Christmas Day?
Whether you're ready and raring to go this morning or are still struggling with the after-effects of too much turkey and wine, we've decided to ensure that the end of 2017 goes out with a bang by offering you a very special post-Christmas sale.
After looking at all kinds of witty or smart promotions internally, we decided to keep things simple for you:
It really is that easy - no ifs, no buts, you can grab 20% off any order on the AllTheAnime.com web store by using the discount code BOX!NGCLEVER (note the exclamation mark in there) at the checkout by entering it into the "Discount" box on the checkout page like so:
You can use the code as many times as you like, and on as many orders as you like, over the qualifying period of the sale (although please note that we reserve the right to cancel orders believed to originate from known resellers).
So, what are you waiting for? Head on over the our online store now to grab great discounts on every single product in our range!
Now, before we leave you to a wanton shopping spree, there is one final thing we should mention. Those of you who joined us on our 12 Days of Christmas sale may know that there were delays to order fulfillment, with some orders from Day 11 of the sale now not shipping until the New Year. So what does that mean for this post-Christmas sale? Will you have to wait until well into January to receive your orders?
In a word: No. To cover orders over this Christmas and New Year period, we're shifting all of our orders to a different fulfillment house to ensure that they ship in a timely manner, so anything you purchase during this sale will ship as soon as possible. Unfortunately, existing orders placed during 12 Days of Christmas can't be handled in this fashion, but any new or back catalogue orders will be shipping as normal from 27th of December onwards.
Needless to say, we'll continue to tackle any customer service queries as and when we can via our shop e-mail address, so if any issues arise please get in touch with us there.
Now you're armed with all of that pertinent information, be sure to remember to use your discount code and pick up some great bargains as we head towards the New Year. Take care, and happy shopping!!
