Amazing Anime Add-ons to Enjoy on Kodi


Being a Manga & Anime fan, the genre was the first category I added to both my Kodi Jarvis & then my Kodi Krypton Estuary desktops. Kodi offers a massive selection of anime & HD cartoons through various add-ons including those streaming directly through torrents.

Phoenix was my favorite & first choice Kodi add-ons to search for the latest Anime series.Until recently the add-on for working fine till it completely stopped working hence leaving us with many different anime add-ons.

So, I embarked on a research missionto find thelatest & best anime Kodi add-ons, and these are the one I found working perfectly:


13: AnimeGo


Our countdown begins with AnimeGo which is possibly the best Anime add-on currently running on Kodi. The add-on is fully functional and was recently updated with latest animeTV series & movies.One thing that you will love is that all features in the AnimeGo menu works, there are no dead links that I have come across yet.

anime go video kodi addon

AnimeGo entertainment has been brilliantly categorized into lists of:

  1. Favorites
  2. Movies (Alphabetical &Top Rated)
  3. Shows(Alphabetical & Top Rated)
  4. Movies & TV Shows Genres
  5. A dedicated search option, and
  6. Recently added movies & TV Shows

Apart from being one of my favorite &most highly rated Kodi add-ons, AnimeGo, is a great place to get the latest in anime entertainment on Kodi. Install the AnimeGo add-on by downloading the DK-XBMC repository zip file from here.

14: Cartoons8


Second on our countdown is Metal Kettle repository’s Cartoon8 add-on with its own dedicated anime section. With categorized anime inNew & Hot, Newly Added, Popular, and Alphabetical lists, plus, an embedded search feature the add-on is for the usual anime fanatic.

cartoons8 kodi addon

The good thing about Cartoons8 is that the add-on is regularly updated allows watching from a massive anime & manga library. The only issue is that some features are unavailable at time, so do keep that in mind. Cartoons8 is not an official Kodi add-on and is thus not supported on the official forums, but you can contact the creator of the add-on on Twitter @Metal_Kettle.


15: AnimeHere


AnimeHere is another brilliant anime Kodi add-on from DKNight the creator of AnimeGo. AnimeHere offers a better library, navigation and streaming sources. The add-on has a similar interface to that of AnimeGo, but has slightly different categories and the links are always active.

Loaded with all new series including “Avatar: Legend of Korra” to “Hunter X Hunter”AnimeHere is a superb add-onto have on Kodi to watch latest anime series & movies. I really loved the Latest Updated Anime and Top Anime categories since you get all the latest anime episodes without having to search for them.

animehere kodi addon

The Genre list is simply awesome,packed with everything from adventure, action, family, horror, drama and a lot more. The amazing thing is every link I have watched works, some series will not have links though and you will have to wait till the series or movie is made available.


16: AnimeRam


Simple and easy to go around AnimeRam is a great solution for Kodi mobile for its minimal features,it is available through the SuperRepo repository. The add-on is built for latest anime series episodes that are routinely updated. The interface displays only two categories Latest & List All plus a search option to quickly find your favorite anime series.

The alphabetically categorized library is VAST, and I mean its ginormous!

There was so much to browse through, new series and some brilliant quality links, most of whom worked just fine. For some reason VideoWeed links were not working for any of the series listed. AnimeRam is a great add-on to have if you like something simpler and fast to stream anime TV series, have a go and remember to  leave a review for the add-on in the comments area.

17: Anime44


Anime44 is a well-designed Kodi add-on for anime, and is available through the SuperRepo repository. The categories are very simple:

  1. Movies
  2. TV Series
  3. Ongoing series, and
  4. New series

Apart from the categories you are blessed with a search feature that actually works and links more or less the same as the AnimeHere add-on. Do remember that the Anime Movies section does not work yet, and offers no media to watch.

So, with no movies available Anime44 is a purely TV series streaming option. The TV series section is a true blessing with excellent alphabetically categorized series,ongoing series, completed series, popular series and recent series to choose from.

So, that brings us to the end of our top 5 anime Kodi add-ons. Just so one of the add-ons above fail to work for you, here are some honorable mentions you can check out:

  1. AnimeFate
  2. PL
  3. AnimeGet

Best Fun Kodi Cartoon addons Kids will Love


Kodi is truly a universe of entertainment for streaming fans around the worl no matter what age and preference. There is everything to choose from live TV, sports, lifestyle, movies, TV shows, documentaries, foreign cinema, anime, cartoons and much more. While we usually discuss & list add-ons for sports, movies and TV shows, it’s finally time to offer some giggles to the little ones.

So, I previewed the best cartoon addons on Kodi that kids will love, here are my top picks:


18: Cartoon HD


Available through Kodi’s SuperRepo repository, CartoonHD is not really the best Kodi add-on for cartoons, just my favorite one. CartoonHD known primarily for its superb streaming library of children’s entertainment, also boasts a massive library of popular & trending movies and TV shows.


cartoon hd for kids kodi


I have previously used CartoonHD on Android, so to have the add-on with Kodi is just a great bonus. CartoonHD doesn’t offer the latest children’s entertainment compared to other add-ons but the good aspect is that all links work. There is also a search option so you don’t have to go through the entire library to look for your favorite media. The reason I really like CartoonHD is for its buffer free sources, seldom will you come across an add-on as stable as CartoonHD.

19: Kiddie Cartoons


Available to download through the MetalKettle & SuperRepo repositories, Kiddie Cartoons is known for its absolutely amazing categorized library of cartoons and anime titles. KiddieCartoons has something for every child from Barney the dinosaur to Barbie adventures.

Children can also indulge in a long list of anime and educational cartoons to learn as they enjoy themselves.


20: B99TV


In my opinion B99TV is the best cartoon add-on for Kids on Kodi. The add-on only offers cartoons categorized by series, episodes, studio and search. The best feature of B99TV is its regularly updated library of sources and new media.


b99tv for kodi


B99TV offers cartoons from the 90’s, a great selection of animated movies, Disney entertainment and much more in a single add-on.

21: Bobby’s Cartoons


A similar add-on to B99TV, Bobby’s Cartoons deserves its place amongst the top Kodi cartoon add-ons. Although not categorized like B99TV and KiddieCartoons, the add-on offers a great selection of entertainment for both children and for adults.

While Exodus remains one of the most used Kodi add-ons for high quality movies, TV shows, and anime,Zenhas suddenly swept the Kodi streaming userslike a storm. Apart from the conventional features of Exodus, and Phoenix, Zen introduces some amazing features to the bundle. Powered by faster and better HQ sources for videos.


zen kodi addon review


One of my favorite additions in Zen was its watch list feature for both movies & TV shows. This allows me to create my weekend and holiday playlists to marathon through on days off. Similarly the Featured, Trending, Top rated, Marvel Universe, and Disney Collection menus available on the home screen are also excellent quick access features added within Zen. Brilliant features also include a TV calendar menu, an Airing today menu, and Returning & New TV show menus added to make Zen much simpler than other comparable add-ons. But probably, the pick of Zen’s amazing features is its superb “In Progress” feature that allows you to catch up to any incomplete movies or TV series you left half way.

Another brilliant aspect makes Zen the most popular user choice for streaming these days, which being its ability to fetch video sources from multiple HQ websites that also include premium sources including Alluc and Real Debrid
