Which website is the last resort website for the anime fans when they cannot find a particular anime show or movie on other websites? Well, the answer is crystal clear- Kissanime or Kissmanga. One of best past times for millennials and generation Z is to watch movies and shows online. There are many websites where anime fans can watch shows and movies related to anime industry. These days when people like to spend their time in isolation, they prefer to watch movies at home.
With development in technology there are various sites that will stream top quality videos and images to the viewers. Kissanime was one of such websites that stream online shows and movies for free. This was a very popular website amongst anime fans and even anime creators. Almost every anime fan was aware about this website. Not even this, kissanime became world’s biggest online streaming anime website. The traffic on the website was huge. Anime shows were not legal in many parts of the world until late 2000’s. the only place where people could watch their favorite shows and movies for free was kissanime and kissmanga. the question here is if kissanime was such a huge website, why was it brought down? There is nothing controversial in the shutdown of kissanime. It is as clear as crystal.
The videos streamed on the website were pirated. the copyright owners were not paid for their videos. This is illegal, it means that kissanime was stealing the content from anime industry and was not paying the creators for the content. Whenever a website streams a show or movie, they are legally obligated to pay the creators of the website. No website or streaming app can stream the videos or movies without the consent of the content owners. Since, kissanime was streaming the videos; the money was not given to the creators. In Japan, the anime artists are not paid adequate money for their content. These artists cannot even afford their living, so when a viewer chooses to pay kissanime or any other pirated website he is choosing to not pay the rightful artist and content owner.
What kissanime did was not ethical. Like kissanime, there was another website that as on the same track of pirated content- Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll is another anime website that stream anime shows and movies. The website started by streaming pirated anime shows and movies but later it became legal and is now dominating the anime industry. If you want that your favorite artist is paid for his work, then make sure you are watching on legal websites that are streaming videos and images. The first target of Japanese anime industry is domestic audience. The popularity of anime industry in western countries has brought a huge profit and fandom to the industry. If a viewer thinks that their favorite anime show is not coming again or they are not making another season, then it is because of kissanime. It is time for anime fans to choose right and to do right by their favorite anime creators.
