Behold, a compiled list of places to watch the Summer 2021 Anime for free, specifically in Southeast Asia. While Crunchyroll and Netflix don’t have all the latest shows available in Asia, there are plenty of alternative sites and apps available out there. Plus, they’re absolutely free and legal! It’s the perfect way to support the titles and studios too.
Before diving into the list, just a friendly reminder that some anime titles are region-locked. (Mostly because of other streaming rights.) This means that they are available depending on which region you are in. The good news, however, is that they could be available on another platform! The schedule, subtitle, and region details are on each of their respective sites. Since it’s free, ads should also be expected.
With no further ado, here is the list of where to watch the Summer 2021 Anime in Southeast Asia!
