4 Best Sites to Watch Anime Online in 1080 Quality (2021) (Zoro, CrunchyRoll, Funimation, AnimeDao)
High resolution is one of the biggest factors for a pleasant watching experience. As long as their Internet connection is stable enough, everyone wants to stream their favorite anime in HD quality, and more ideally, in 1080p.
Unfortunately, not every free streaming site can afford to provide us with such a high resolution. And if you haven’t found a site to watch anime in 1080p for free, we have here a list of the 4 best sites to bookmark.
Table of Contents
Zoro might not be as well-known as other sites in the list but with its exclusive features, we have to talk about it first. Zoro is an ad-free anime streaming site that allows us to stream and download thousands of subbed and dubbed anime shows in ultra HD quality.
Zoro.to is newly launched but the team behind it seems to be experts in the field. To compete with other long-established names, the Zoro team decides to create a site that offers every good thing other sites have and gets rid of their downsides to ensure its users have a perfect streaming experience.
The site boasts an extensive content library, high resolution, seamless streaming experience, simple user interface, and great device compatibility. At the time of this post, it already has a collection of thousands of subbed and dubbed anime, all in ultra HD quality. The cherry on top is that the site is completely ad-free. You now can rest assured your device and identity are 100% safe on Zoro.

CrunchyRoll was created as a fan-subbed stream site and now it has become one of the most-visited anime streaming sites. With over two million paid subscribers (keep in mind that the number of visitors that come for free content is much bigger), CrunchyRoll is no doubt on everyone’s lips.
Although the resolution on CrunchyRoll is superb, the legal site only offers a limited content library for free (with ads). It means that if you are looking for the latest releases or current titles in HD quality on CrunchyRoll, you are highly likely to be disappointed. However, you can still apply for a free trial that lasts for 14 days to get access to its whole content library before getting charged. If you don’t mind paying, you will be paying $9.99 a month, or $79.99 for a whole year.

Funimation is a well-known legal streaming site that lets us watch anime shows (mostly dubbed) in 1080p. This is the perfect place for those who prefer dubs as the site hosts up to 600 dubbed anime shows. As the company behind it has been on the market for almost 3 decades, they surely know what they are doing and they are doing it well. This site provides us with seamless watching experience, fast updates, and complete safety/legality.
However, if you go for the free tier, your access to the site’s content library will be limited and you will have to sit through several ads. If you don’t mind paying for its content, you can consider 3 different paid packages, Premium for $5.99 a month ($59.99 a year), Premium Plus for $7.99 a month ($79.99 a year), or Premium Plus Ultra for $99.99 per year.

AnimeDao is another ad-supported free anime streaming site that provides us high resolution, high quality content, and many other great features. The site currently has a collection of over 2000 titles, making it one of the anime streaming sites with the biggest content libraries.
Like Zoro.to, AnimeDao is also completely free of charge; you don’t even need to make an account to access the site’s full content library. However, keep it in mind that you will see some ads and popups here and there. To protect your device and identity from virus and malware (that might come from those malicious ads), you should always have your VPN, anti-virus program, and AdBlock extension on before accessing the site.
Depending on your needs, we hope you’ve already known which site suits you the best. All of these four sites above provide you with high resolution (1080p) but they are still slightly different. While Zoro is ad-free, all the three other sites are ad-supported. While Funimation and CrunchyRoll offer a limited access for the free tier, Zoro and AnimeDao let you stream their content at no cost at all. Check them all out and let us know what you think about your recommendations.
