I like to use veoh sometimes, but crunchyroll is my favorite since I bought a cheap subscription, it was totally worth it!

And they don't have any anime on there that's licensed, so it's all legal too :)

There are quite a few sites where you can actually watch quite a bit of anime, online, legally. As I don't support the illegal downloading/viewing of anime, here are some of my favorite links to watch anime online.

http://www.crunchyroll.com/library/IndexAnime -CrunchyRoll is a great site to watch anime. Not only do the simulcast (cast on their site at the same time or shortly after it airs in Japan) almost all of their anime, it's all free. There are two downsides towards using CR (CrunchyRoll) though. If you want to watch the simulcast, you have to pay for a subscription or wait a week for it to be released to the public. Although, the subscription cost is rather low and worth it. The other downside towards using this site is it's rather small choice of anime. This site is still growing, and while they have many good anime on the site, there are still very few shows that they host.

http://www4.funimation.com/video/? -Dubbed and subbed. FUNimation is the owner of many anime licenses and try their hardest to support their viewers. They host a large amount of their anime online, and for free. They have a ton of anime, and they upload a lot of it. The only real downside towards using this site is that some of the series aren't uploaded all of the way and you'll only get half of the series done on some of them.

http://www.veoh.com/browse/tvshows/category/tv_anime -I love Veoh. Not only are all of the official videos high quality, but you can LEGALLY download every single one of the videos they have for free. This is almost completely dominated by FUNimation, but if it's here, you'll most likely find the entire series (unlike their official site). The only downside I can possibly think of for Veoh is the age restriction. If the anime is rated TV-18 or higher, you need to have an account that is registered as 18+ to view the videos. Not necessarily in an Otaku's best interest, but it does show that they care about who watches/downloads.

http://www.youtube.com/shows?p=None&s=None&b=2 -I find it so strange that people don't associate YouTube with anime. YouTube officially hosts many anime shows, from many different companies. Although FUNimation does have another strong presence here (FUNimation really does care about us... T_T YAY!), but that isn't a bad thing. YouTube hosts a large amount of anime (some of it original content) and offers you the choice of a fast loading, low quality video (if you just want to watch it)or a slower, but higher quality video (if you want to take your time and enjoy both the graphic details and sound quality). It's a great site to watch anime on, yet few often associate it with official uploads. It's quite a shame.

You are correct about not everyone having $20 on them to save. However, if you are anything of an anime/manga otaku, you would still seek out the best quality viewing/reading experience that you can afford or find. I'm guilty of not buying every series I have watched and get as many fansubs as I am enticed to procure. What makes it different is that I never forget that my enjoyment of those fansubs is done by fans for fans. So if I really am a fan, then I will find a way to buy the merchandise.

Thank you both! I love that picture lots...as well as girls with glasses. <3

Actually, what I meant was that watching anime through a website is the worst possible way to show your support for the fandom, not to mention at THE worst visual quality and/or resolution size. Doing your homework to seek out fansub groups, and then supporting the industry by purchasing the DVDs/Blu-ray [if you really liked it and want bonus stuff...usually] is how you really watch anime.

In a few words, I am HIGHLY opposed to watching anime through a website UNLESS it is for research/reference purposes (e.g. finding a certain quote, learning about a character, finding out how the Japanese voice actor sounds, using a clip for an original video).

Although ZOMG is a great site I think animerumor is a better site even ask my sister Kayla.

ok, now I understand your original point. I know how you feel, Sometimes I feel like it is stealing to read manga online. I mean that's kind of going a bit far. Plus, I like the feeling of a book better anyway and it's more fun to collect the series. However, not everyone has $20 on hand to just go out and buy the newest DVD of their favorite show, so I don't know about that.

There is no such thing as 'the best site for watching anime.'
