I would like to start watching anime from my mobile phone but i don't know any good application that streams anime and i can't watch animes from regular sites .
So is anyone actually watching anime from his phone? If yes, how can i do the same?

Yep, I have a few sites I watch from on my iPod touch. It's pretty much my nightly ritual that I go to bed and watch a few episodes of something before I doze off.

anime4iphone.com is easily the best one, with a wide variety of series, it's updated daily and the episodes are always good quality.

iphoneanime.net is a little glitchy, but it is still a good site with a wide variety of series.

animeboy.org/mobile is the newest one I have found, and has a long list of series. A good site.

Also, if you can get the Crunchyroll app, I recommend it. Plenty of free anime episodes on there.

If you're looking for specific episodes, you can always look on Youtube, Veoh or Dailymotion, if you're desperate enough.

It's not required to pay to use crunchyroll. I still haven't become paid member there. If you want to watch it as soon as it was aired in Japan, then you may. I'm usually in other countries that is not supportive, so I just don't pay.

anime4iphone.com
iphoneanime.net
animeboy.org/mobile


Interesting, but isn't it illegal? I heard that I cannot watch those illegal stuff through apple appliance like i-pod touch. (I have one and I only can watch youtube)

I like my eyes waaaaaaay too much to do that to them.

If I am going to watch something, I will do it on a device that doesn't require I have it right in my face for up to half an hour ruining my vision in the process.
While not technically anime, currently I am a big fan of Hatsune Miku.
At least I can go see her in concert.

My cell doesn't even support internet, or apps. Shows how technologically advanced I am.

@Kipcha , ty i ll try the sites later , i want to make it my nightly ritual too unless i have something better to do ;) . About crunchyroll , that application requires an account and that account requires a credit card number, i don't trust sites which want something like that .
@Sukunai , i like them too but i also like animes and i ll soon have to forget about them and my computer unless i start watching via my phone ;D ( college >.< )

I download anime in .avi format and keep it on my phone since i don't/can't have an app for that. An anime with 24-26 episodes takes up like 5-6 GB and since I have a 16 GB memory card I don't have to worry about that space

I never understood watching anime on a phone or ipod. Maybe I just like my high quality or easily reading subtitles, but it seems like such a hassle instead of just keeping it on a computer, with a bigger and higher quality screen.

Not by phone...too small for me, but sometimes I use PSP - easier to read the subs. My preference though is still the bigger screens of the monitor or TV.

I don't. I've watched youtube videos on my phone but when it comes to Anime, I couldn't.. for the fact that I like to watch it on the largest screen possible, and ofcourse that I wouldn't be able to read the subtitles clearly. I don't see the point in choosing watching it on my phone over my television.

I don't like it. It makes the anime less enjoyable.

I watch from my phone all the time but I use zumocast application with my DROID bionic. It streams the files I download on my computer to my phone. It is pretty sweet but doesn't support 10bit yet.

I hope by mobile phone, you mean a Galaxy Note. Otherwise, the screen size isn't worth the hassle IMO.

I usually use YouTube. I didn't know you could stream via iPhone. Cool. Thanks for the links guise. :3

I have transferred downloaded anime to my iPhone only one time because I needed a couple of movies to watch on a 5-hour bus ride. XD

I have 3 sites you can watch on your mobile device.

In order from quality and download speed if u decide to download it (or u can just watch it from there)

1. animeshippuuden.com (awesome quality, quick download speed)
2. realityLAPSE.com (awesome quality, download times really slow)
3. iphoneanime.com or animeboy.com (same thing). (quality sucks, good download speed)

These sites I use to watch on my phone. Not all anime on animeshippuuden.com will show the whole episode, only about 12 minutes of it for some anime series. If this is the case, u can either
a. go to iphoneanime.com and download or watch the 2nd half with crappy quality and different subtitles, or
b. go to realityLAPSE.com and watch or download it from there.

I recommend that if u are going to download the anime from realityLAPSE.com, it would be best to do it from the laptop or computer and then tranfer it to ur phone since it is about 30 minutes quicker than if u were to download it from mobile. takes about 18 on my laptop to download an episode.

The main app i use is called #Animania, but i don't think you can find it on the google play store anymore (copyright issues... yet oddly the #Mangania app is still on there lol). You can get it by going to goodanime.net on your phone browser. You can download all the animes you want from the app, or stream them, and then use the app to watch them whenever (you need to use the app as it downloads a .flv file, not mp4/avi etc)

Same with me, using #Animania for Anime. It has quite good selection of them and the app starts the video using your main video player. It works really good with MX Player.

Edit: oh right, using Android device :)
I watch anime through mobile then my PC is being used by my sister or parents. Or at nights.

for me, the best website has to be http://kissanime.com/G/468722?l=http%3a%2f%2fkissanime.com%2f
it's a new website but it has loads of anime that you can watch on your phone really easily

Animania & Animefreak app are very good, high quality, and almost all the mirrors are working.
I've completed over 30 animes from my phone.
