Japan never ceases to amuse us. Be it their technological advancements or their weird social experiments. One thing that has been getting all of our attention is their ever young anime industry that has been blooming for the last few decades. With viewers all around the world, various television channels and websites have been successful in extending the reach of anime.
The dawn of smartphones eventually paved the way to the creation of handy apps which further extended the reach. One such app of the recent times is AnimeFlv which streams anime from one of the popular network – animeflv.net.
