Hanime.tv is a hentai site that’s been in existence since 2014. As is the case with many sites in this genre, it appears to be independently owned, although ownership information is not available. They do have a Twitter account for anyone who wants to see lots of hentai memes.
As of January, 2019, Hanime is the 926th most-visited website in the world, the 83rd most-visited adult site, and the 482nd most-visited website in the US. Its Alexa ranking is 2,821st worldwide, and 1,157th in the US.
Hanime features only full-length, HD hentai videos. The main page looks less like a porn site, and more like a big-name streaming video service. There’s a huge welcome image, and when you scroll down you’ll see movie poster thumbnails of the newest videos. Simply click on a thumbnail to start streaming.
Hanime currently hosts over 2,000 hentai episodes, with new ones added a couple of times a week. Anyone can watch or download videos in 720p, while premium members can download true 1080p versions of their hentai. There’s no “freemium” content here. Every episode we checked was full-length. Most videos are in Japanese with English subtitles, but there are a handful of dubbed videos as well.
There’s also an image gallery available on the site, although it can be difficult to find. There’s a hamburger menu on the top left of the page you can click to bring up navigation options. Inside that menu, you’ll find a link to the image gallery. Recent images and GIFs are also displayed on the main page, beneath the latest videos.
There are no live cams, games or VR porn on this site. That said, they do partner with Nutaku.net, a popular hentai game site, although there are no extra perks on Nutaku for Hanime members.
The search feature lets you search by title or by a more general term like “anal” or “big tits”. Matches will show up in a dropdown list. If there are more than four matches, a button will appear at the end of the list allowing you to “show more”. Clicking this button takes you to an advanced search page, where you can click a Tags button at the top of the page that allows you to filter between various categories. Alternatively, you can get to the advanced search page from the get-go, by opening the hamburger menu on the top left of the site and clicking Search.
The site runs well on some newer phones, but all mobile users will get better quality video by using the free Hanime app. We’re not sure how employers would feel about finding that app on a work phone, but for most people it’s a great way to get better quality without overtaxing your browser.
There is some advertising on Hanime, but it’s limited to unobtrusive banner ads for other hentai sites. There are no popups or pre-roll ads on videos, which is a huge improvement over many porn sites.
Did we mention this is a hentai site? Categories including Yuri (lesbian), Yaoi (gay), Tsundere (hard to get), Mind Control, Monster, Ugly Bastard, Harem, Loli and Futanare (transsexual) are all well represented. Hanime fans of all genders and orientations will find something they enjoy here. Giant squids and fantasy monsters will also like this site.
Most of the content on Hanime is censored. If you’re looking for uncensored hentai, make sure to run an advanced search and select the Uncensored tag along with whatever other category you’re looking for.
Hanime.tv has licensing deals with some of the biggest names in hentai. They get the hottest videos from Collaboration Works, Hoods Entertainment, Media Blasters, Nihikime no Dozeu, Green Bunny, Jellyfish and more than 50 other studios. If it’s a hentai you’ve heard of, Hanime probably hosts it.
Hanime is independently owned and operated, and is not part of any network of sites. They do link to hentai game site Nutaku.net, but don’t appear to be part of the same company.
Streaming video on Hanime is 100 percent free for members and non-members alike. Anyone can also download the videos in 360p, 480p, or 720p. However, guests are limited to a download speed of 100 KB/s, so get ready for long download times if you’re not a member.
A standard membership is free, and takes less than 30 seconds to sign up for. This will unlock download speeds of 1 MB/s, which makes downloading a 45-minute video in 720p easy and fast. A free membership also gives you the ability to save videos as favorites for easy access.
A premium membership costs $4.99 a month, and allows you to download videos at unlimited speeds in true 1080p. You can pay with a credit card, PayPal, or cryptocurrency. Hanime also gives premium memberships to forum moderators and discord moderators, and has a token system on their app where users can earn points towards a premium membership by watching ads.
Autobill warning: If you sign up for a membership with PayPal or a credit card, you’ll be charged $4.99 every 30 days until you cancel your membership.
Hanime.tv is chock full of all the kinky animated action you crave. No matter what category hentai you’re into, you’re bound to find it here. Their partnerships with studios mean they’ll get videos with English subtitles before other sites. All the content is high definition, and is available for free on their website or mobile app. The only downside, if you can call it that, is what we’ve been stressing for this entire review: this is a hentai site. If you’re not into animated porn, look elsewhere. If you are, you’re sure to cum again and again.
