This website offers the following:

  • HTML5 logoI use HTML5 video (mp4). That means these videos will play on pretty much anything. Any OS, any mobile device, any set-top box (Roku, Amazon Fire, etc.), and modern video game systems.
  • I offer both dubbed & subtitled versions for everything! (With the exception of a few Japan only releases.)
  • As for video quality, I offer high quality (equivalent to 480p) and low quality (equivalent to 360p) versions.
  • The layout of this site is responsive, so if you're on a tablet or smartphone it will rearrange itself as if I offer a mobile version of the site.
  • Streaming is not the only thing I offer. Each anime has a screen shot gallery. Some anime have downloadable soundtracks, manga, and behind-the-scenes videos.
  • Videos can be directly downloaded! No other anime streaming site allows you to that!
  • HTML5 logoThere are NO ADS! Every other anime streaming site is flooded with ads. Not here :) I am providing a free service out of the genuine interest of sharing with you the classic anime I love.

Sci-Fi Channel Saturday Anime logoAs for the selection of the anime I have chosen for this site, it is primarily classics from the late 80s and early 90s. In a sense, this site is dedicated to a segment that once played on the Sci-fi channel called Saturday Anime. Every Saturday they would play an anime movie. It had these demos when it went to commercial breaks. Most of the anime featured in this site are favorites of mine from Saturday Anime. They're special to me because they're some of the first anime movies I've ever seen.

A couple of these movies are specials that were never released in NA (i.e. Wizardry, Ninja Gaiden). Others are newer but were included because they're based on an RPG that had been shrined in my (i.e. Final Fantasy VII: Last Order, Chrono Trigger OVA).

And if you didn't notice, this site is a subsite of (hence the FantasyAnime navigation in the footer). I consder this the official anime section.
