Lately, we’ve been receiving a lot of messages from readers asking for ways to watch their favorite shows online. Anime has become a worldwide phenomenon and more streaming sites are legally licencing titles, often simulcasting them only a few hours after their initial Japanese release. Now, more than ever, fans can support the industry by subscribing to one of the many services that stream anime. For the price of one chain store coffee, you can buy a monthly subscription and enjoy as much anime as you want.
We know piracy is the easy solution. Sometimes it’s more convenient to have all the titles in one place than having multiple subscriptions to streaming sites. And it’s free, right? Wrong. By visiting these piracy sites, you are denying income from the people who are creating your favorite shows. The industry is a chain of factors that influence one another, and it needs our support if it is to survive.
What we are asking of all MANGA.TOKYO readers is just this: If a title is licensed in your country, go the extra mile and pay for the privilege to watch it. And to make it a bit easier, we have prepared this list of all the licensed shows of the Summer 2017 season. If you haven’t made your list yet, you should check out our Season Preview!
Note: This is an alphabetical list of shows You can use the search function (Ctrl+F) to find your favorite show. We have also included a link to the anime info page and first episode review or preview. For ease of access, we use dedicated anime streaming channels, unless the anime is not distributed by such.

I know it’s a cheesy title but it’s true. If you love anime, the you must have the best interest of the industry in mind. The best way to support it is by buying the DVD/Blu-rays, purchasing official merchandise, visiting the cinema whenever a movie comes abroad, and of course, by legally streaming all your anime episodes.
