Whether your goal is to build a profitable anime streaming site or a popular anime blog, our list of flexible anime WordPress themes will provide you with a solid foundation for your future website.

Multipurpose vs. Anime Themes

If you were hoping to find an anime wordpress theme that features an anime design style, you might be out of luck. When developing our list of customizable anime wordpress themes, we found a very limited number of options that had an anime based design. The ones that we did find were last updated in 2015, built on very old frameworks, and were not modern in any sense of the word.

Redesigning a Movie/Blog Theme for Anime

Because there are virtually zero anime themes on the web, we recommend repurposing a multipurpose streaming or blog theme instead. It’s easy, fast, and ensures that your anime site will have a clean design that’s compatible with the latest customization plugins.

Any of the designs posted in our list can easily be transformed into an anime themed site. For example, if you’re creating an anime streaming site, simply upload the cover photos of whichever Anime series/movie you will be hosting into the theme’s movie poster section. Or if you’re starting a blog, all you need to do is upload your Anime graphics into the image sections of your blog’s posts/slider/homepage.

Our Anime Website 

The screenshot posted below is an example of how easy it is to redesign a streaming/blog theme. Using the Vodi theme, which is the first theme in our list, we made some basic adjustments and transformed it into an impressive anime website within minutes.

Where to Host Your Anime Website

Before you purchase a theme and start building your site, you need to consider what type of hosting company you should use. Owning a streaming site comes with the constant risk of having content (or the entire website) taken down via DMCA complaints and copyright violations. The only way to not have your site taken down is to host it with an offshore hosting company.

AbeloHost, which is an offshore hosting company headquartered in the Netherlands, provides its customers with 100% protection from copyright/DMCA complaints. Dutch internet regulations protect websites from such complaints, which makes AbeloHost one of the best options on the web for hosting your site with.
