Chia-anime is the 12th site in this list of free Netflix anime sites. I’ve been watching anime on these sites for quite some time. However, none of them looked as bad as Chia-anime. Even though the site has a darker UI, but when it comes to user experience, it’s the worst.
If you don’t believe me, go to the URL address of Chia-anime I’ve added below. You’ll see the ads everywhere. That’s not the issue why I’ve criticized this site so much.
I’ve got a perfectly fine internet to connect but still, images at the homepage will not load. In terms of anime & manga, it does offer a good amount of collection. From anime, anime movies to Manga, you’ll get everything you need in one place. If you’re unable to find your favorite anime or manga, I would recommend you to think of Chia-anime as your last resort.

- Annoying pop-ups for distraction.

14) Soul Anime
Soul Anime is the 14th website on this list to watch free Netflix anime. In terms of looks, it’s nothing but pathetic. With the animated logo & blue-white color combination, the site looks third-class on the outside. And broken images at the homepage does not help either.
However, there’s a major reason why I’ve added this site on this list. It offers a countless number of anime on their site. Further, Soul Anime updates their database with new episodes on a daily basis.
For instance, I was waiting for the 9th episode of Deca Dence anime & you won’t believe me, it was the 1st site to update the anime on their site.

Now, coming to the older version, the user interface is quite similar to Anime Frenzy. It’s the same anime site I had mentioned earlier. You get a search box & 8 menus at the top. These 8 menus are – Anime, Dubbed, Series, Movies, Ongoing, Popular, Schedule, & Random.
Below that there’s a slide show & a long list of the latest anime on the site. Unlike the newer anime heaven, the older site doesn’t provide an option to switch back to the alternate version.
